Oh, how our thoughts, attitudes and behaviors keep us stuck in a rut. We keep things we will never use again and clutter our minds with thoughts that are destructive to our sense of well being. We read everything from mysteries and drama to romance novels.
We spend hours on social media, watch endless hours of TV, drink to numb the pain of living, shop and buy thing we don’t need. Why do we do all these things ? Many will say its for pleasure and enjoyment but deep down inside - its to forget about your troubles, your worries, your struggles in life. Its an escape to avoid the real issues in your life.
My friends what truly matters in your life is understanding who has created you, fashioned you, molded you, and given you all that you are today !!! 1 Corinthians 8:6 “There is only One God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and One Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.“ Let your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors be directed in complete reverence, wonderous, and fearful awe of all His greatness and almighty power.
