"Lord How do I switch off my focus from myself and the pain I have in each moment and stop just surviving the days going by?"
By thinking on things above, my darling. By changing your focus from inward to outward, from present state, to all that I have in store! Dare to hope and dream. Come join me up on the mountain top where you will find rest, peace, comfort and be restored. Breathe in and taste and see that I am your one Good thing you can trust completely. You are never alone. Cast out all fear. Know who you are. You are mine and I am Yours.
Living as Those Made Alive in ChristColossians 3:1-4 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Philippians 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.
