You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3 (ESV)
If this is true, what does it mean if my mind and emotions are in turmoil?
Yep, it's a gauge. It means my mind isn't set on God.
And the answer?
Try harder? Get cracking on that to-do list? Nope, wrong answer.
Right Answer: Set my mind on Christ. Refocus on God. Realign my thoughts with Him, my being in His presence.
Simple when you think about it.
Funny/sad thing is, this time of year, when our thoughts should be most centered on Jesus, is when we find ourselves in the most turmoil.
Question: What helps you escape the turmoil and re-focus on God?
