Consider This #2

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians (3:1-2)


Here's something to think about this weekend:

"All the great temptations appear first in the region of the mind and can be
fought and conquered there. We have been given the power to close the door of
the mind. We can lose this power through disuse or increase it by use, by the
daily discipline of the inner man in things which seem small and by reliance
upon the word of the Spirit of truth. It is God that worketh in you, both to
will and to do of His good pleasure. It is as though He said, 'Learn to live in
your will, not in your feelings.'" ~Amy Carmichael

'Learn to live in
your will, not in your feelings.' Learning to live in God's will and not my own as well! Amen, sister.
