Worship Wards Off Wandering

Francis Chan said that we can’t sin and worship at the same time.  This morning, I started to grumble in my mind and then I remembered the line, “I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross” from the song, “Here I Am to Worship”.  Thinking of the lyrics of that song nipped the rumbling grumbling. By mid-morning, my friend Poshan sent me this perfectly timed photo via Viber: IMG_6463   Last Thursday, I was trying to send my friend, Fe, Philippians 4:6-7 about not being anxious after I learned that her son, Gabe, had an injury across the miles but the verse that my mind could think of  was Philippians 4:8 so when I looked it up, I read the latter verse: Phil 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Thank You, Lord, for reminding me that when I guard my mind with thoughts of You, when I fix my eyes towards thoughts that worship, praise, and thank You, the mind-wandering towards grumbling, complaining, dissatisfaction, and sin are warded off.  By the power of Your Holy Spirit, please enable me to guard my heart and mind in Jesus’s name amen.    Oh, and dear Lord, I ask for Your all-powerful, all-loving hand of healing upon Gabe from the inside out in Your name, amen.
