Always On My Mind!
As we go through each day, there may be various thoughts running through our mind at any given moment. However, how often have we found a single thought remaining there throughout the day? Have we also experienced a thought that has continued to float in our mind for several days? Or how about a hymn that has gotten stuck in our head of which we found ourselves beginning to actually hum or sing out loud? How does such IMPACT OUR FOCUS for daily living?
There's a song titled "Always On My Mind" [by song writers Johnny Christopher, Mark James, and Wayne Carson Thompson] which has been recorded by various artists and relates the idea of THE LOVE who was always on his mind. The song expresses the idea that even when it might not have shown, she was still always on his mind.
When it comes to the relationship with my wife, if I always keep her on my mind I am going to be less likely drawn away from her to another. When it comes to our life, where we focus our mind is also significant relative to our faithfulness to God. What is always being kept in mind to keep our life PROPERLY FOCUSED?
One of the psalmists wrote. . .
"Oh how I love your law! IT IS MY MEDITATION ALL THE DAY." (Ps. 119:97 ESV)
On what do we find ourselves FOCUSING MOST? Keeping something wholesome (note Philippians 4:8) running through our mind will guard it from being filled by worldly stuff and being influenced by such. With God's Word remaining the FOCAL POINT of our life it will impact our choices. With our thoughts ALWAYS CENTERING on what God desires, our actions will be drawn toward such as would be pleasing to Him. A life always FOCUSED ON HIM and His standard will lead us to live in a manner clearly revealing how much we do love Him! He sent His Son with us in mind. He is mindful of every aspect of our life. May He and His Will always be on our mind.
Have a great day KEEPING GOD'S WILL ALWAYS BEFORE US!
