It is critical for your personal well-being to make a decision to allow peace to rule in your heart and life.

Not Carnality But Christ

In Chapter Three of The New Testament Book of Colossians in our Creators's Book of

Life and Love, we are given clear instructions in self denial:


First of all ~ He admonishes us in this manner:

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is,

sitting at the right hand of God.

This admonition is continued in this manner : Set your mind on things above, not on

things on the earth.

That's just the beginning. He continues by letting us know that we are to:

Put off anger, ~ wrath ~ malice ~ blasphemy ~ and filthy language.
***** AND *****

Put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who

created him.

The reference for the above is The

Walk In Humility

In our Creator's Book of Life and Love in The Fourth Chapter of The New Testament

Book of James ~ we're given this instruction:

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

In addition to the above ~ Our Creator's Book of Life and Love expresses the following in

the Fifth Chapter of The New Testament Book of 1 Peter:


Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be

submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud,

But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of

God, that He may exalt you in due time
, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Be Thankful

DECIDE that you're going to Let God's peace rule in your heart ~ and be thankful.

No one can force us to be thankful. It's an attitude of the heart that we must choose.

From our Creator's Book of Life and Love ~ in the Third Chapter of the New Testament Book of Colossians ~ we are given more help as He tells us to

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

It has been said that attitude determines altitude. So ~ let's adopt an attitude of gratitude.
