Consecrate Your Mind
For the past several days I've been crying out to God asking Him to show me or tell me what's going on with me. Anxiety has been cropping up in little symptoms here and there--I couldn't understand why they'd come back and not stay away like before. This morning while singing in the choir, I felt these words impressed upon me--Consecrate Your Mind. I was in the middle of singing a song, but it was like these words were written in bold, large letters in my mind. I knew instantly what He meant. I had not been guarding my mind. Because I have had peace for so long, I had become confident and had stopped reading the Bible as much and listening to praise music as much as I did in the days I was desperately seeking Him. I had been watching too much television, spending too much time on the computer--letting too much of the world enter my mind. So I said, "Yes" in my spirit this morning and I recommitted my mind to Jesus. Everything I have is His, after all. Then I came home and told my husband. And bless his heart, he agreed. We turned off the television and left it off until the Astros baseball game came on. Then he watched and I cooked dinner. I feel so much better now. I feel as if God's eye is on me and He's helping me live for Him. Glory to God!
