Colossians 3: 1-2 (ESV)
1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
*Many times, we are focused on what the world tells us we should be doing... We set that idea as a goal, and focus on achieving it. We also make our own plans to follow, and constantly try to modify the plan if we are dealing with a situation or people that we prefer to be removed from. However, solely focusing on what we want and what we believe is best can be exhausting and often frustrating. We have to learn to turn our minds towards what God wants and what will assist us towards spiritual betterment and peace. He wants us to have an unexpected end, and the things we do on earth influence what we will experience after we pass on as well. So, ask yourself what are you focused on that makes life more difficult? And is that of God? Did you receive a word from heaven to deal or not deal with that? Take your mind off what society tells you, and ask God where is He trying to guide you.
