FOCUS: The well of my soul.
IS it well with my soul?…
Because your plans are for my good, not my destruction!!!
Lord help me to adjust my focus and recognize YOUR plan Lord.
“Your soul is your highest self.”
The soul is the mind, the will, the imagination.
What you think OF yourself determines the way you speak ABOUT yourself, which develops your habits which then shape your life.
What kinda shape are you in?
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. (Romans 12:1-3 ESV)
Help me to stop the mindset of fake it til I make it & adopt the spirit of faith it til I Grace it!
Because your plans are for my good not my destruction help me to adjust my focus and recognize your plan Lord.
Help me to remember that plan requires a process which includes growth which includes pruning which includes a cutting away of everything that’s dead.
Every high thing must measure itself
We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, (2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV)
Help me to know that without faith it’s impossible to get your attention.
Help me to recognize my identity when comparison kicks in and tries to cause me to immolate out of admiration but quickly morphs into imitation and ultimately because a thief robbing me of my joy.
Help us when we feel unnoticed, unworthy, and unlovely.
No comparisons, it robs our joy
complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:2-4 ESV)
Is it well with my soul? What’s in that well?
