With everything that is going on in the world today, it’s time to take a serious evaluation of our lives. This is the time when we need to do some serious pondering!  With violence being the headline that we wake up to and go to sleep with, being bombarded with news reports of bombings, burnings, beheadings and evil reports of every sort, many have tuned out, so to speak. Our senses are over-loaded, our conscience is seared beyond black, and our psyche are screaming >STOP< !!!

So…. yes, let’s stop. Instead of focusing on the evil that is being perpetrated in every corner of the world, let us focus instead on what we have been told to do according to the King of Kings.  Open the book of all books and read in Phillipians 4:8 ~ “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Sounds like a plan doesn’t it? But how on earth does one do that in real life, real time? Where does one find the ability to draw upon the resources that our Heavenly Father promises? It only takes one thing…one simple little thing…just open the book. It’s as simple as that. Read the book ~ and may I suggest …. start in Psalms.

Just read the first three verses:

Psa. 1:1   1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked,
    Nor standeth in the way of sinners,
    Nor sitteth in the seat of scoffers:
2     But his delight is in the law of Yahovah;
    And on his law doth he meditate day and night.
3     And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water,
    That bringeth forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also doth not wither;
    2And whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Now….don’t you feel better?

psalms-119-93
