when troubles come

Storm Approach

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Colossians 3:2

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:2

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:9

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:8

Do you find it difficult to daily have the mind of Christ?

Storms come. Hard decisions. Difficult people.
Tragedy, injustice, and anger surround us.

Focus on His words…

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

  1. Thanks for the post, Judi. It’s very timely for us right now. Isaiah 55:9 was the first verse I was lead to after Mia passed away. It’s what my wife needed at that moment because she was, and still is, questioning and doubting God. Have a very blessed day, and thank you again.

    • I lost my dad at when I was 13, a 9 month old niece and too many others. I did not have Jesus. It was horrible. I am thankful you have your Savior and He carries you along. Do not fear grief. We all do process differently – peace to you all.

  2. It is indeed very difficult to daily have the mind of Christ. Sometimes I’ve not gotten three blocks from home before I seem to have forgotten everything I prayed that morning. It’s so frustrating, but I keep it up and keep looking to him. Thanks for sharing these scriptures.
