on a monday

after he made us coffee, poured his cup, and hugged me good bye for the day, my dear hearted husband looked me in the eyes and pleaded – pray I keep my mind on Christ today.

when you look into your love’s baby blues and you can see the fight – you hurt with him. and you battle alongside of him.

wisdom is truth well-applied, and when we look for wisdom we need only search the face of God. His actions are borne out of His all-wise character. Through the Word of God, through the work of God from creation to the Cross to the church, through the Holy Spirit, we find wisdom. We behold God.

If you want to live – then look to Christ.

TURN your eyes upon Jesus.

FIX your eyes on Jesus.

LOOK full in His wonderful face.

STICK your face nose to nose with His. Read His Word. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you Himself. Fight in prayer to know and to gain the all-wise God.

and LIVE… blessed with wisdom, beholding God, bold to walk out the door, into His world, knowing the Way to go.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 ESV)

Christ is Life (Colossians 1:27)
