Feed your mind with Scripture - Colossians 3:16


Colossians 3:16a
Let the word of the Anointed One richly inhabit your lives. With all wisdom teach, counsel, and instruct one another.

When I study Scripture and give it the time and reverence that it deserves, my mind is clear regardless of the circumstances. Pastors and teachers always tell us this, but it's one of those disciplines that you have to try so you can understand. 

The wicked prince of the air and your own weaknesses will battle for control of your life and time. You can wage a better battle when you know the Scriptures that rebuke evil. 

You can also help your children, friends and family in their time of need when you quote Scriptures that give insight to life's many twists and turns. 

A friend who's very ill recently sent me a text just as I sent her a Scripture that she very much needed in the moment! That's the work of God through us. 

Many times when I'm deep in study, God will answer a question I have or provide insight into a topic I've been studying. The deeper I go into Scripture and in my walk with God, the more I understand topics that I failed to grasp before. It's pretty cool. 

The words from your mouth
I've found that the Holy Spirit empowers me with the right Scriptures the more I study. I still enjoy 'aha' moments when words roll off my tongue that encourage and bring comfort to others. 

Don't let a day go by without searching the Scriptures. You just might learn truths that will change your life and the lives of those you know and love!

These are a few of my favorite Scriptures. I cannot live my life without God and his word. I keep a 3x5 wire bound note diary of verses that pop off the pages of my Bibles. This helps me in case I need to comfort someone with a specific verse. Start your own collection!


Comfort

Psalm 119:76 Comfort me with your love, as you promised me, your servant.
Job 4:4 Your words have comforted those who fell, and you have strengthened those who could not stand.
Strength

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…
