Good morning to all! I pray that you all are doing well this new day. For each day that passes is getting closer to spring! Yay!
I had been thinking about how we all need to be closer to the what is good and right with the ways of GOD and have a peaceful way about us. A closer encounter. If you GOOGLE “Close encounter” you will come up with some links.
I came across an old move movie called “Close Encounters” from 1977. It is about how people all over are drawn to a location, like minded and lost in the thought of aiming to get to this location.
If you flip this to how it can be for those of us that are like minded and aim to be with the LORD…..this is something like this. You are focused and not distracted because you are seeking the destination of heaven.
If we are in the body of Christ JESUS then we are like mined, wanting to aim for the higher place away from the ways of this fallen world. We look up and have set our hearts on being with the LORD.
Acts 17:27-29 King James Version
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
Keeping our focus on the LORD is hard, because the evil one is always trying to take our eyes off our prize of our LORD JESUS . To be with HIM in all eternity long! Yay!!!!
Philippians 3:14 King James Version
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Keep your mind and heart on our prize in heaven. You will be encouraged by reading the word of GOD that is true and loving.
Have a blessed day in the LORD where ever you may be. Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog posts I share with you all . Pass it forward to others who may need to know loving GOD is always there with them.
