Keep the Mind on Christ By Brenda Drake

I used to daydream a lot, most of the time it was truly wasted time.  I would create a make-believe place in my thoughts where I would be strong, beautiful, rich, or smart.  There was not much accomplished by my imaginary place of rest.  I found I was still weak, sad, lonely, or as angry when all was said and done.  I am free now as I think on Jesus, I am who the Word says I am.  I can do as the Word says I can do.  Jesus is the Word, and He is my Lord, and the lifter of my head in any situation I face.

Keep the Mind on Christ

Focus on things good and true,
Keep good healthy thoughts inside of you.
When fear or anger threatens to overtake,
Do not hesitate,
Turn your mind in a right direction,
Pray in the Spirit and you will get help to reject them.
When bored or lonely, or when the heart-sad breaks,
Heed good advice and some adjustments make.
Read about and think about the Lord you love,
And you will be strengthened by wisdom from above.
If you are tired and weary in your life,
Turn your heart and mind back again to Christ.
If you feel poor and needy, and tattered or torn too,
Think of this good word given to you.
You will leave rich, and richly dressed;
In the pure robe of God’s righteousness.
Come in any circumstance you face;
God gives comfort and give peace within His embrace.
Think thoughts positive and true,
Think about the promises given to you.
Have faith in God’s ability and in His Word,
You will have a much pleasanter life upon the earth.

Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
