Is your mind prone to wandering or wondering?????
If so, this chapter is definitely one you want to read.
Joyce talks about how important it is to “fix our minds” on the things of Jesus.
When we allow our minds to wander we are giving the devil a “foothold.” And then “wondering” takes our wandering a step further away from God.
For example, as our mind wanders we may start asking questions like, “I wonder what life would be like if this or that wouldn’t have happened.” Eventually we will become discouraged, distressed, or discouraged, all of which rob us of joy and contentment.
So, as you walk through this next week try to pay attention to how often your mind begins to wander and make a decision to regroup and focus on Him.
Wouldn’t it be great if the only thing we ever “wondered”about was the “wonder” and power of the cross?!
1 Peter 1:13
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.
