Where's Your Head At?

Just a simple question for the day.

Where's your head at?

Is it scheming ways to escape the chaos at home or the trouble on the job?

Is it cataloging a list of things that have broken recently like your washing machine, your car, or your kid's braces (for the third time)?

Is it dreaming up imaginary arguments with someone you have to confront or muddled in confusion over who to believe or what to do next with your life?

Is is sinking in sorrow over the loss of a loved one or a failed marriage?

Or is it seeking strength, gratitude, peace, direction, and comfort from the Lord?

Just a simple question for the day.

Is your head with God... or not?

Matthew 6:33

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (King James)

"Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met."
(The Message)

Romans 12:2

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." (King James)

"Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you." (The Message)
