Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Where are your thoughts often focused?  On what is your mind set?

Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.  The mind controlled by the sinful nature is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.

--Romans 8:5,6 TNIV

In my motorcycle rider training, I've been taught that when making tight turns, to avoid falling, look at the destination, look where I'm trying to go as opposed to looking down and being concerned about falling.  In other words, keep my mind focused on the goal.  Paul tells us that where we focus our mind largely determines our destination.
So where is your mind today, where is the focus of your thoughts.  "...The mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace."
