Just think God is flooding your heart with love that cannot truly be stopped the mind is the only think that stop's His love.

even when we think 'my mind is stopping his love' it still flows out to and through us, all that is stopped is a certain experience that we don't want to miss
but even without experiencing his love a certain way, his love is still there for us, and his love still lives in us and will flow through us to affect others in ways we won't even notice till ages after
nothing can seperate us from the love of god

        good stuff! 

i am so thankful that god is not controlled by our minds.  there would be no hope at all if that were true.  i am pretty sure that is not what dan was meaning or implying.   

it is true that lies in our minds affect us and that we can affect others with lies, but thank god that he can and does break through any and all barriers, no matter what the lies say and do.

my hope and prayer for myself and the family of god is to know and to continually be reminded and encouraged that christ has set us free from the lie-ing one who wants only to kill, steal, and destroy by continually convincing us with his lies that we have not been set free and to convince us that we are in bondage to pretty much anything and everything but christ.  that is the 'work' and 'bondage' of the lie-ing one.

the work of GOD in our lives is that we know HIM and HIS power in us ... the spirit of his life within ... that power that sets us free from the endless variety of bondage-sources that continually strive to capture and hold our hearts and minds captive.  his work in us is in and from the realm of the miraculous.  that realm is the realm of GOD and no other, because there is no other realm of true freedom, love and peace.  that heart-realm is the realm we have miraculously been born into in christ, yet for a while, temporarily housed in mortal shells that do indeed suffer.

suffering is indeed temporary, yet ... in these mortal bodies, it can certainly FEEL eternal, can't it?  LOL   i know, not funny really.    Thank GOD 'this too shall PASS!'

Most excellent! :) Very encouraging. His power in me is what I desire, and I know this same desire has been placed within the hearts of all who are in Christ. The liar would indeed have us doubt the very nature of God within us, but God is more powerful than all the doubts.
