“Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth.” (Colossians 3:2 HCSB)
Breakfast was ok.
Lunch was another story.
I was having such a hard time not reaching for something else… I was on my way back into the kitchen (mostly because my phone was still sitting by my coffee maker), and I physically had to redirect myself into my room to grab my bible. I sat on my bed, opened it up to a random page and began reading. It was in Ezekiel, I think, and it had to do with prophesying to a prince… But as I sat there, I couldn’t concentrate on what I was reading. My thoughts were elsewhere, and I began to pray and cry out to God. Yes, sitting on my bed, I was basically shouting and asking God for peace. I needed to have my thoughts redirected. That is when Colossians 3:2 came into my mind: “Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth.” That is what I have to constantly remind myself to do. I get so easily caught up in my temptations to gorge myself or restrict until I feel weak; I forget how to let go and allow God to take control!
On a lighter note, though: IT’S SNOWING, Y’ALL!!! And we are out of class both today and tomorrow. There is going to be so much Netflix watching/book reading/coffee drinking; it’s going to be great. 🙂 And you better believe that I have been singing Frozen alllll day.
Lord, thank You for speaking to me in miraculous ways recently. I love drawing nearer to You and having a thirst for You. Please continue to fill me with Your spirit, and guide me as I walk (and occasionally run) through life. Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving me worth, for making Your presence known in my life, for healing me, and most of all for loving me like no other. I cherish the grace You continuously show me every single day. Give me the strength and courage I need to listen to Your words of direction and to be confident in the decisions I make. Jesus, I thank You for loving me enough to humble Yourself, for becoming a sacrifice for MY sake, for overcoming the grave to sit at the right hand of Your Father in Heaven, and allowing me to have a relationship with You no matter how messed up I am. I am enough because You were enough. ❤ Father, I pray these things in order to bring glory to Your name, Amen.
