When trouble arise, think glorious thoughts, thoughts of
high-ascending value.
Soon, the trouble seems menial.

2 Tim 1:9
9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according
to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was
given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

Light from the WORD.

Believer, you have been "called" by the Lord God into His salvation.
When you answered that call by surrender to Jesus, you were also
"sanctified,""justified" and "glorified." (1Cor 6:11 and Rom 8:30)

You may be struggling, but listen to what God has done for you:
Your weary life will be crowned with glory,
Your weary hands will hold victory,
Your name is written in the Lamb's book of life,
Your physical death will bring you to eternal splendor,
Your eternity will be spent where there is no crying, dying or IRS!

And there are so many more thoughts:
God's Holy Spirit is ever present in your life,
The power that raised Christ from the grave resides in you,
Our Lord Jesus prays continually for your deliverance,
You have the Word of God for a manual of living,
NOTHING can separate you from the love of Christ!

Because of Christ's humble nature in you, you cannot elevate yourself
above others.
But by spiritual thinking, you CAN elevate yourself above the troubles!

Are you thinking spiritually?
Love ya!
