Welcome to reality

Covid-19, civil unrest, political unrest, earthquakes, fires, division, corruption, fear, hate, riots, wars, explosions, killer insects, unemployment, suicide, child trafficking – Welcome to the reality of 2020 in just eight months! Do we have a solution? Do we have an escape from this barrage of negativity and overwhelming bad news? Many people are losing their minds! Some to drugs, others to alcohol. Some to sexual immorality, others to fantasy. Some to work, others to corruption. Some people are just simply going crazy!
I, too, have lost my mind. Yes, you read that correctly. I have absolutely lost my mind! Philippians 2:5 states, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” I have lost my carnal, human, negative thinking mind and put on the mind of Christ. I have lost my mind to love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. 1 Corinthians 10:13 states, “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
I have lost my mind to the best escape, solution, and hope for the world today. I have lost my mind to the Word of God and to the will of God’s Spirit. I have lost my mind to the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I have lost my mind to Jesus Christ! Have you lost your mind?
