Most everyone has probably heard about the “Courageous” movie coming out Sept. 30th. A Christian movie, to encourage fathers to step up to the role God intended – leading families, loving their wives… as Christ loved the church. (If not, click link – it’s going to be great!)
I’ve seen some trailers, and the opening scene… and I have to say it’s evoked a lot of emotions already. I can’t wait to see the complete movie, hopefully – with my husband in the REAL theater!
Casting Crowns, a Christian music group that we love, wrote the title soundtrack to the movie … and it’s been played often on the Christian radio station – so that the words and tune are often played in my mind… Okay, there IS a point to this blathering on…
Well, two days ago when I woke up – I woke up to that song! It wasn’t in my phone … or synced into my radio alarm…
It was playing in my head. I love it when that happens – don’t you?
You know, that whole “top of the mind awareness” thing? It’s obviously how our brain works!
It was an amazing thing, and a perfect way to wake up – and GET MOVING… Being reminded of the message that God wants us to all things for Him, and to never give up the fight that is our life on earth.
On the contrary, when we put in negative messages, and untruths… either from our past, or just created in our own minds – THOSE can replay too…
Over. and Over. Annnnnd Over again.
I was thinking about all of the negative things we can put in our minds… the ways we let Satan tell us lies, and we repeat them to ourselves… poisoning our brains, and relationships.
See where I’m going with this??
I thought I’d be a great time to check in and see how your Truth pack is going? Did you give up on it? Did you stop being faithful in writing down God’s Truths to replay to yourself? Those positive, TRUTHS – are the messages our mind and heart need to fill up with each day. They are the reasons for us to stay on the narrow path, to the narrow gate – and continue striving to be healthy for Him!!
So… no guilt trips. If you dropped off, or never started – NOW is the time. All you have to do is make an effort this next week to get caught up, or get started with writing down some of the Scriptures I’ve shared in this blog, or others that speak to your heart specifically. Post them around your house where you’d see them most… where you sit when you eat, or where you exercise.
“But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart,’ that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, ‘whoever believes in him will not be disappointed.’ “ (Romans 10:8-11)
