I came home last night to a hot house! 😱 As I investigated the problem, I saw the filter was dirty. So, I changed it, and now we're enjoying a nice cool place to continue living our lives. 😊

I got to thinking, are we filtering our lives? Are we filtering our thoughts and our words through the word of God or the world?

"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" 2Cor 10:5

"Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man." Matthew 15:11

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7

God promises us time and time again that if we live according to His word, or filter our lives through His word, that we'll receive blessing beyond anything we can imagine. When that filter was dirty and it was hot in here, I was miserable. When we changed it, the heat didn't immediately go away, but I was able to relax knowing that the A/C was doing its job and things will cool down. Now that things are cooled, all the problems of life that I had before didn't go away, but they are now easier to deal with since I'm not miserable any more.

When you filter yourself through the Word of God, things may not change right away, but relax knowing that change is coming. Are your problems going to go away? No. But know that you've got One who will walk through the fires of life with you, helping you every step of the way.

I had something very similar on my heart today and I though...where could I post this on MC (rather deep for General Discussion/Theo seems to be off topic as well)...

So I thought of this forum and then I came and read what you wrote here (very similar to what I wanted to offer)...

I like what you have written here about filtering things (great insight)! Thanks!
