Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:8-9
How do we commit ourselves to God? How do we find what God wants us to do with our lives? By daily focusing our minds on the Lord. Reading His Word daily and setting our minds on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable, or, as the King James Version puts it, whatever is of good report or praiseworthy. We are to meditate on these things, focus on them, put them into practice and when we make Jesus the most important fixture in our hearts, minds and lives, then we can commit ourselves, what we do, and what we want to do to Him. 
Fix your eyes upon Jesus
Focus on His face
Inhale the essence of His presence
Soaking in His grace.
There’s so much more to living
When we turn our hearts to Him
Find your all in Jesus
This is where we begin to live.

What would your day look like if you spent it thinking on Jesus and on the good things He has for you, instead of on your circumstances and the “what if’s” in your life?  I’d love to see your answers in the comments below.
