“We better start thinking about what we’re thinking about! Our mind is God’s most powerful gift and has the creativity to shape our reality and influence our life. The path in life we take is only a thought away.” – #ToddCPittman
Yep, I Said It!
…and so did Romans 8:37 (NLT) – (37) “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”
“Romans Chapter 8 was a timely read this morning. Given all that is going on today, the scriptures served as a reminder to me of who loves us and whose we are. As tragic and heartbreaking the events of our times are, nothing that is happening today is new. We’ve battled pandemics as far back as the Antonine Plague in 165AD and racism has lived in the United States since the colonial era. And through it all, nothing has been able to separate God’s love for us. Back in the day, the apostle Paul made a list of terrible things that could happen in our lives. His reminder to the Romans is a reminder to us today that we are not immune to violence, hardships, disease, or even worldly threats. It is also a reminder that through all this mess we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us. We all know that to conquer means to be victorious over an adversary. Well, let’s not forget that we are still in the midst of a pandemic in addition to our battle with a segment of our brothers and sisters that – to this day – still wear a false perception of superiority. This morning, COVID-19 and systemic racism are still our adversaries. But let’s hold on tight, not lose focus, think like a victor, don’t think like a victim, and let’s allow the Holy Spirit to renovate our mind. We will not only get through these difficulties and achieve victory, but we will be OVERWHELMINGLY victorious!” – #ToddCPittman
