Just thought I'd like to share.

I read through Philippians today and was really encouraged. Let's look at two passages:
"Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, and not frightened in anything by your opponents."

"Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ."
Our opponents are those who set their mind on earthly things. But sometimes we are our own worst enemies when we focus our thoughts on the trivial and the petty things of the world.

A quote from a song I love: "If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy, I can only conclude that I was not made for here."

My friends, we are made for Heaven. And we look forward to our Home in Heaven. Because we know that nothing here can satisfy us: there must be something more. That something more is God. We are made to know and to love and to glorify God.

Where is your heart?

In most people the heart is located on the left side of the body.

Right hand over your heart. Ready? Begin.

But some 1 in 10,000 have a condition where the heart is located on the right side of their body. That is, on the wrong side.

I have a feeling that the common perception of where your heart should be is all mixed up. Just because everyone else's hearts are on the left side does not make it the Right side.

If anything, 9,999 in 10,000 have their hearts in the wrong place.

My friends: Be the One with your Heart in the Right place.
