Keep seeking things above

If you’ve been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above (where Christ is, seated at God’s right hand).  Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth; for you’ve died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ (who is our life) is revealed, then you’ll also be revealed with Him in glory.  - Paul

I don’t know about you, but I have to be constantly reminded of this.  It seems like there are so many constant reminders of earthly dramas, it’s easy to be completely focused on earthly stuff.  In the constant daily struggle of life I sometimes forget to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus and lay up treasures for myself in heaven and things like that.

RE-birthdays are great reminders for me - a real blessing, because they force me to remember that life is about much more than just this silly world.

 Thank you for being such a blessing to me!

All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.  The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of Yahweh blows upon it; surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.

Get yourself up on a high mountain, O Zion (bearer of good news),
Lift up your voice mightily, O Jerusalem (bearer of good news);
Lift up, don’t fear.
- Yahweh (through Isaiah)
