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, she offers a solution to any ongoing battle that we are in
and the truth that what concerns us shouldn’t consume us.
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; gun
control or right to bear arms, speak your opinions, or be censored; expose
all the human trafficking and child sacrifice, or turn hour heads and pretend
we don’t know; vaccination or no vaccination, voter fraud or integrity, and
on and on and on.
And that doesn’t even include all our “personal” battles: price of gas, price
of groceries, health issues, relationship issues…
How does one maintain sanity, let alone their “Christianity” in times like
The answer, though simplistic, is and will always be:
“ 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
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, or the battles
we are facing, 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.
