Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
"Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things." This is the part of today's reading which speaks to me most clearly. Sometimes our minds can become so noisy and full of earthly concerns. This happens to me sometimes when I am trying to fall asleep. When I remember to turn to God, things quiet down.
Holy Lord, you are always here with me. You always listen. You always give me peace. I am so very thankful. Amen
