The issues were swirling around in her head, crashing into each other and as they did, confusion, depression and bewilderment began to seep into her soul, making her feel as though she were drowning.
Have you ever wanted to scream at your mind and tell it to stop? With all that is happening around us, is it any wonder? Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. As she shares her heart, and a solution to this ongoing battle that is all around us and settling into our minds and hearts, may the reality of the love of our Savior wash it all away and transform your mind and heart.
As she read Isaiah 1 and 2, the similarities were shocking. Many times she had heard people say, the Bible is old; it’s not relevant, but the contradiction was blatantly obvious: here on the pages was history repeating itself, only the repetitions felt as though they were on steroids, probably because population is so much larger and they didn’t have social media back then, she concluded.
Let’s face it, every form of social media seems to be discussing one issue or another: abortion or prolife, borders and walls or let them all in; “no mask for the healthy” or wear three masks; close your businesses, outdoor dining, red tier, purple tier; close the church or keep it open; speak your opinions, or be censored; expose all the human trafficking and child sacrifice, or turn hour heads and pretend we don’t know; leftists, extreme right. We all know this list could continue on.
When did we become so angrily divided, she wondered. Would there ever be a reprieve or a change of direction back to moral unity?
How does one maintain sanity, let alone their “Christianity” in times like this?
Legacy Nashville was playing worship in the background and when the paused to share about this very subject, she stopped and listened. Was this coincidence, she wondered, or a God-incidence? I was as though the young lady speaking had reached into her mind and grabbed her thoughts…and exchanged them for a solution!
“Rom 12:2 Be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you will be able to test what is that good, perfect and acceptable will of God”…for you!
While all of these “issues” are of concern, I must allow my mind to be transformed by God by meeting with God so I may be used for God.
The more we think about these things we don’t agree with, the more they will consume us and make us un-transformable…and isn’t that just what the enemy wants?
We don’t have to ignore them or pretend they don’t exist; we just can’t let them take up space in our hearts and minds because they don’t pay the rent! Instead, we can take what concerns us to the One who is concerned about us and not let all of it consume us.
Can I encourage you, friend, put your spiritual armor on…daily, every single piece of it, for such a time as this; then you too will be transformed by the renewing of your mind able to test what is that good and perfect will of God for you and for our nation.
