Mind: Intention, Desire

IMG_3174

For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.
1 Corinthians 2:16 AMP

What does it look like to have the mind of Christ as we enter these Advent{ures}? How will my desires this season reflect His? What intentional practices can I commit to keep my mind stayed on His love and peace and joy in the days ahead?

Good questions to take to heart and mull over in my mind, as I enter His presence each day.

Today, I joined with some dear friends, who prayed for each other, as we admitted our struggles with negative thought patterns. It would be foolish to believe that just because we have entered the season of “good cheer” that we won’t be faced with thoughts that are contrary to peace and hope. So many expectations for this time of year can obscure the joy of celebrating our Savior.

Will you join me in contemplating this amazing truth?  We don’t have to lose our minds over the holidays. We have choices. We have the mind of Christ!

One thought on “Mind: Intention, Desire

  1. I’m focusing on would they know I love Jesus if I don’t tell them. Can strangers see the love of my Jesus?? I think most the time if I’m not focused on showing it they can’t. I need to work on that

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
