Your Choice
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Since our emotions generally flow from the specific topics we dwell on what would happen if each day we got up and right from the “get go” intentionally set our hearts and minds on heavenly things? When we capture a mental framework of the “things above” namely where Christ sits, and consciously think about all that he is, all that he HAS done for us, all that he IS doing for us, and all that he WILL do for us, we automatically start the day generating good emotions and feelings.
Conversely, when we start the day thinking about the conditions of the world or our personal issues, we, as it were, “get up on the wrong side of the bed” and most likely, our emotions and feelings will be negative.
We only have so many days on this planet and the good news is we have the power to make each one either cherry or dreary, regardless of our circumstances. So in order to start off each day with our “sunny side up and our bottoms dry” let’s make a big effort to set our hearts and minds on things above. We’ll be happy and blessed if we do.
