“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” – Colossians 3:2
With all the very sad things that are happening around the world, my husband took me out earlier to sit on the stairs outside for a short devotion and to challenge both of us to set our best thoughts on what heaven is like according to the Word. And we declared all the good things about heaven in a conversational way while looking at the sky…
G: In heaven, there is only pure joy. No sadness. No tears.
M: No pain.
G: No fear. No anger.
M: No sickness. No greed. No poverty.
G: No fighting. No yelling. Just shouts of praises to the King.
M: No bills to pay. No driving!
G: Only love. Pure love.
M: And it is forever.
G: And ever.
M: With Jesus.
G: O Lord, come…
God changes our hearts and renews our mind when we set our thoughts on the things above. Things that last forever. As we prayed for Paris and the world, I reached out to God no longer with a clenched demanding fist, but with a childlike faith seeking only the Father’s touch. This is what it is to walk in the Light and let love, instead of hate, overflow from our hearts. For God so loved the world… that His son died for all. (I am talking to myself).
