Well, I thought I would share with you something I have been chewing on a lot lately, desperately needed to be reminded of and to put into practice...
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of
your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and
acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. Philippians 4:8
I have heard it said, "For every glance at your sin, look to the cross ten times." Yes, we need to see our sin at times and how bad it is. If it weren't for that, we wouldn't feel the need to look for a solution. But remember, we travel where we are focused. If you have ever looked anywhere, for an extended period of time, other than your intended destination while walking or driving, have you noticed that you will start to veer off in that direction? Same with our sin. Be aware of it, but do not focus on it. Focus on where you are going... to the One who is good and perfect. The one who redeems. The one who heals. The one who restores. The Lord Jesus Christ. :) I preach this to myself. Can you relate?
