Ponderings

Ponder-To weigh in the mind; to view with deliberation; to examine carefully; to consider attentively. (Webster)

“so heavenly minded of no earthly good”
I have heard it said before
but the truth of the matter
if understood
God’s heaven
make earthlings
care
more

“We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,  because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints—the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel that has come to you.”  Col 1:3-6  NIV
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


a thankful mind
is a safeguarded hope-
a protection to the soul . . .
a grumbling mind
is a failure to cope
and God’s Sovereignty seems like a foe

“. . . always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Eph. 5:20
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”  James 1:2

NIV
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

do not play
the arrogant fool
and think what you see is real
it soon will pass
it will not last
but that which you don’t see will

~JD Collier

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. . . We live by faith, not by sight. . . So we make it our goal to please him . . .”  2 Cor. 4:8, 5:1,7,9
NIV
