DEVOTION: “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” – Colossians‬ ‭3:2

What a verse. I was just tuning into the debate for 3 minutes and had to turn it off. Then I open my bible and see this verse. Amazing.

We are so prone, especially during an election year, to focus entirely on the things that we are bombarded with every day. Politics, education, health care issues, the list goes on and on. We are programmed to be preoccupied with these issues. Are they important? Absolutely. Are they the end all be all. Absolutely not.

I firmly believe that God is very much in control of all of this. He continually shows us his love, provision and guidance.

This small reminder to keep our eyes focused on the eternal. Things that are above and not of this Earth. It’s a sobering and peaceful reminder. We are not truly in control. We fight, argue, set our policies and rules in both a governmental way and a personal way and yet, all of it, every bit of it, is in Gods hands.

Our very lives. The air we breathe and the steps we take are all ordained by Him. Let us be reminded and remember that and seek His face and His ways first.

    Political people make me crazy when they talk about how they can control climate change. Yes we want to keep our air and waters clean but they think they can help control things like temperature etc. I believe that God being the good good Father that he is has this all under control.
    I fear most for the unborn. The liberals think it’s ok to go as far as to kill the baby even outside the womb now if the mother might decide she doesn’t want the child. Apparently they don’t acknowledge Psalm 139.
    For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
    14
    I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    15
    My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
    16
    Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
