Al Mack, on Facebook, suggested looking on things above rather than be caught in the stresses of this season. “Colossians 3:2: Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Wise.
I’m doing well with stress of this season – thanks to our Lord! Yet this morning I had the same lesson reinforced. Woke with a leg cramp; fortunately not a large muscle, but still painful. So I asked, “Holy Spirit, help!” Literally. The cramp did not go away all at once, BUT, the more I focused on Holy Spirit, the less I was bothered by the cramp and the more it eased off. The more I focused on Holy Spirit the lesser the pain and the more quickly the cramp was resolving. A great lesson in paying attention to things above more than on earthly things. Lord, help me remember and apply this lesson – constantly!
