  • Guard Your Heart

    The mind is the gateway to your heart. What will take residence in your heart depends very much on what your mind will allow.

     

    While God can be seen in everything, as we learned during the previous talk, not everything is good and God can mistakenly be mixed in the good and the bad.

     

    “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

     

    In this life, you need to be filtered every time. You need to know trash from all that holds value. Why? The world can sell you anything and it will surely sell you something. There is no escaping it. It will come loud and in high-definition color to make you conform.

     

    We mentioned 3 things where filtering plays an important role: familiarity, frequency and formation.

     

    Media can present itself as God’s voice to make you conform. You need to be familiar with His voice or you risk hearing the wrong one. At the Feast, you get to know more of Him and His scandalous love for you. “He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.” John 10:3-4

     

    Your life is ruled by habits. What you keep doing becomes your reality. Be on guard, therefore, with what media you consume repeatedly for it becomes your life eventually.   “But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do.” 1 Peter 1:15

     

    Finally, a strong spiritual system is better than censorship. Avoid the bad stuff by loading up on the good stuff. Get loaded with the stuff that will make you hold on to all that is good. One way to achieve that is to make The Feast your regular Sunday date. “But test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22.

     

    Media is supposed to connect but sadly it separates. Unchecked it can destroy you by taking you away from what is important in life. Filter what is trying to get into your heart. Focus on what is pleasing and good.

     

    My friend, know the voice of “The Word” rather than the world. “The Word” never fades. God is faithful, He is everlasting.

     

    Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” John 6:68

    Be abundantly blessed!

     

    Your Bro,

              As a human being, we are conscious of our body, mostly figuring out how to maintain our physical well-being, so to speak.  Interestingly, many have magnified the intake of all sorts of vitamins, stress relief pills and energy drinks, all to recommend good health and maintain stamina.  When something is wrong physically, many attribute it to the lack of all these drugs; or the lack of exercise, rest and sleep and more likely eating the wrong kinds of food.  While we cannot denounce the lack of what is good for our body, mismanaged emotions often lead to poor health.

My eyebrows were stitched together and my body language suggested that this new level is not easy. I was playing the very profound game of Candy Crush when Andre and I had a moment. He was observing, rather, trying to get a go at my phone. My very perceptive and sensitive boy just went, “Don’t worry, Mommy. Just do it.” It amused me and I figured this would be another anecdote to post on my message status!

We all live in a fast paced world where time runs, technology reigns, values are constantly reshaping and success is based on accomplishments and material things.  As a result, people try to catch up; we either move quickly by choice or we move swiftly by habit.  In the process, we tend to lose the essence of living a well-defined life, of finding meaning for our existence and of discerning God’s purpose in our lives.  So when all else fails and realize that we are being directed to the exact opposite of where we are navigating, we feel miserable and find it hard to be happy.
