God First!

Are you easily set off by the attitudes or emotions of others?

If so, it’s time for a change!

Temperance is something to be achieved by making a choice to practice it everyday and making a personal decision to plant positive seeds into your heart before allowing any negative force to attempt to place a claim on it at the beginning of each day.

Philippians 4:7 says, “and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding , will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Taking this into consideration, I ask that you take a moment to reflect. What are you doing to invite Christ to guard your heart?

Are you passive or active in your faith?

Have you been handed down a religion based upon tradition where you attend church because your mother told you to do so? Do you say grace before a meal out of habit and say your prayers to God at night like He’s a magic genie ready to be at your beckoned call?

If so, it’s time for a change!

You are truly doing a disservice to yourself if you don’t activate faith in your life. It’s like playing a game of spades with the highest card in your hand and not playing it, “just because”. In other words it’s time to use what you’ve got and get busy!

Do you want to be miserable or do you want to be happy? You may choose to be angry about the co-worker who snapped at you or the person who cut you off while you were driving this morning if you like ; ), but I hope you will choose happiness.

Be happy by meeting with your Heavenly Father at the beginning of your day. Be happy by writing Him love-notes and telling Him exactly how you feel. Don’t worry, it’s only human to feel apprehensive about writing to a God whom you can’t see (physically) at first, but I promise if you pursue Him, He will make His presence known to you in more ways than your basic five senses could ever desire.

Start tomorrow. Break out your journal. Put God first!

May God Bless You & Keep You!
