When you say “I’m going to trust God and I’m not going to worry about ‘this'”, guess what your mind thinks about? Usually not about trusting God: in fact, it starts worrying about ‘THIS’! It’s especially the same thing when you are upset about something that someone else said or did, you mind just plays it over, time and time again. You try to focus on something else, and it the anger or frustration or hurt bubbles back up to the surface and you replay once again the whole scenario!

“Well, I’m just not going to think about that right now!”

How’s that workin’ for you?

The mind can be so fickle – it has to be trained to focus!
Is you mind set on Christ and God within? Have you set your mind on the Spirit, which is life and peace?

Our challenge, as Christians, is to have the discipline to set our minds on “things of the Spirit”, as expressed in Romans 8.

If you asked me to name my favourite book of the Bible, I would be hard-pressed to choose between Proverbs and James.  This could be because James seems to be so knowledgeable about Proverbs.  The book of James is quite short:  it has only five chapters and is known for its practical wisdom and common sense.…

Lectionary: Ephesians 6:10-20 The Bible depicts countless battles. From Genesis to Revelation,  from the time Cain killed his brother Abel, right down to the present day and even into the predicted future and the Apocalypse. In fact, it is estimated that more than 14,500 wars have been fought from 3600 B.C. to present day. Think…
