Out of mind, out of sight...

You’ve heard the saying, “out of sight, out of mind.” But, I think we must also be careful because if something is not on our mind, we can quickly lose site of it too and before long it can be gone.

What’s on your mind? Is it your finances? How about your upcoming vacation? Maybe it’s the rude comment from a family member, friend, or colleague at work. What thoughts monopolize your mind? What do you begin your day thinking about? Is it God or is it your busy schedule? Does Christ dominate your thoughts? Well, He must. If we don’t allow our thoughts to be driven and dominated by Christ, we run the risk of losing sight of Him. If we don’t think about Him, we won’t talk with Him. If we don’t talk with Him, our relationship will become distant, stale or even lost. If we lose our relationship, we will lose His presence, power, and interaction in our lives; we won’t be able to see Him at work any longer in our lives.

Don’t allow the cares, busyness, or intrigue of this world to crowd Christ out of His place of prominence in your thought life. He wants to be Lord of your entire life – including your mind. Remember, we are called to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, MIND, soul, and strength.
