First And Foremost
If all of that hasn't been enough yet, Holiday season is right around the corner. We are already trying to gather up some gifts. That way we don't have to do everything at the last minute. It would be easy letting the holidays creep up on us. We may think we have plenty of time, but time goes by way too fast.
On top of all that we are being confronted with sickness and flare-ups. Our grandson is suffering from a cold which is accompanied with fever and a nasty cough, and some of my joints and muscles are acting up. Our little man probably got his condition from his mom and little sister. Don't ask me where mine come from, because I don't know.
It wouldn't take much getting lost in all these things and occupying our minds with daily troubles and problems. However, let's first and foremost keep in mind that God is our stronghold. He provides all we need and than some to face and get through this!
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
