Flesh? Spirit?

Fiction

…if no catastrophe happens today I’ll be there.
…I can’t do this job any more.
…I feel unattractive today
… our country’s in a big mess with no way out.
…I don’t have enough money. How am I going to get through the month?

For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. (Romans 8:5 NASB

Lord forgive me. My mind has been on me. I’ve been selfish and fearful and ungrateful.  I want to turn around my thinking and keep my heart and mind on what a powerful, ministering God I have. And how loving You are!

…”Can you send forth lightnings that they may go and say to you,
‘Here we are’? (Job 38:NASB)
…I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me Phil 4
…I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139
…For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. (Romans 13:1 NASB)  
…I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken Or his descendants begging bread. (Psalm 37:25 NASB)

Lord I feel so much more restful. I’m going to be needing to work on this. It will so much help my peace and the willingness to reach out to others because I won’t be so wrapped up in me. Lord, You are merciful towards me and today I’ll keep resting in You.
