I've been discouraged because my all over body pain has come back with a vengeance as I've been healing from my breast reduction surgery. It seems while my mind was focused on my breast pain, I didn't notice my other pains and thought they were gone. My pain management doctor says our minds play tricks on us like that. Hmmm! There's a lesson to be learned from this about controlling my mind. I just need to fix my mind on Jesus as I go through my day, and all the other stuff will be less important. Fix means: to remain stable, to attach, to be glued. I resolve right now to keep my mind glued to Jesus and watch the other junk fall away. It's even Biblical: "You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all those whose thoughts are fixed on you", Isaiah 26:3. "So we don't look at the troubles we can see now, rather we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever", 2 Corinthians 4:18. "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise", Philippians 4:8.
