When The Smoke clears

This isn’t a poem, here’s one of the Christian Focus emails I send out to a list serve…

Hopefully someone reads it and it helps them as it has for me.

 

When the smoke clears

To often we are worried about the lost! The lost is just that…LOST! It does us no good to be concerned with the things that has left us (hard times, break ups etc). Now I know this is easier said then done however it has to happen we must not worry about the wrong things that has happen in our life, take the bitter with the sweet and maintain.
So why do we worry about things we shouldn’t (Glad you asked)… Now ask yourself!

For me I am conflicted with this;
Paul informs us that we are flawed with the sin of worldly thought.

Romans 8:5 (NIV)
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
In order to have peace we must have a mind governed by the Spirit of Christ (Romans 8:7 NIV)

I don’t know why you’re suffering I can name plenty of reasons as to why I struggle…you have to ask yourself what your mind is governed by is it “your” flesh or “His” spirit.

However I do want you to know that once your mind is governed by the Spirit, things in your life will change.

Romans 8:18 (NIV)
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
When the smoke clears, ALL those uneasy days will become trophies to celebrate what Christ has brought you through. Because…Romans 8:37 (NIV) tells us
“in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

Don’t harp on these hard times. In this new year be a new you renewed in Christ Jesus governed by a Spiritual mindset. Becoming more then a conqueror…

When the smoke clears…there is no fire.

…and the reader said Amen.
