Keep Looking Up! :):):)

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a beautiful day yesterday. If not, keep your chin up and your THOUGHTS riveted on heavenly things.

Often times, whatever is happening in this earth takes up far too much of our attention. And on stormy weeks… no matter how much we look up, we just can’t see the SUN through the cloudy skies.

Colossians 3:1-3 “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits at God’s right hand in the place of honor and power. Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about the things down here on earth. For you died, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Six thoughts for today…

  • Think a whole lot about your NEW LIFE in Christ!
  • Set your SIGHTS on SPIRITUAL REALITIES!
  • Know that your savior sits in a place of HONOR and POWER!
  • Let heaven FILL YOUR THOUGHTS!
  • Don’t spend too much time analyzing things going on here in this physical world.
  • Don’t forget that you are a dead man walking… with nothing to guard and nothing to prove.

The SUN is always shining… and the God that started a good work in our lives will never stop working on us until that GOOD WORK is completed to perfection! Even though you may not be able to see through the cloudy skies with your physical eyes… and even though you will face times when every beautiful thing is absolutely BLOCKED from your gaze… God is ALWAYS THERE and he is ALWAYS WORKING!

Remember this: What’s happening IN you is FAR MORE SIGNIFICANT than what’s happening TO you. Many times, beautiful things come out of ugly places! 

I pray that today’s blog adds tremendous value to your amazing lives! We love you and we are praying for you like crazy animals! Have a super duper day…

    Let’s just say yesterday was a wild day in my life as a teacher. God is so faithful and cares about us so much, but we must stay focused on HIM and not what is going on here on earth. Your words are going to get me through today in the classroom. Thank you for your blog.
