Where to Look

Battles truly are won or lost in the mind.  Escaping the well worn ruts of lies and their companion feelings is a struggle.  I want out of the ditches.  My dearest friend told me to read Hebrews 11 everyday for a month in order to get my focus right. At first I doubted there was anything there that applies to one of my worries/ditches (they rotate like a “flavor of the day”)—getting a job when the world considers you ‘over-the-hill’.  I have no college degree, been out of the workplace for 20 years, and struggling with several health situations.  I read through the chapter; didn’t see a thing.  Next day, I really did not care to read it again, but I promised so I did.  There it was! – “By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised.”  (verse 11)  Sarah’s age was not a deterrent to God.  “Is there anything too difficult for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:14).  It’s the Who of my faith that matters; God makes possible what in the natural is limiting or seems impossible.  *He* provides.

Looking at oneself, others, or circumstances can be a downer; looking *up* dispels the fear and gives glory to God.
