Motivational Minute – The Voice of Victory

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:1-2 (NIV)

Hi, I’m Laura Lacey Johnson

Years ago, I worked in radio and did a little bit of everything from doing the morning show to writing commercials. 

And I see a connection between our radios and our minds.

In the same way we set the dial of our radio to the music station we want, we also choose the thoughts we allow into our life.

We can set our minds to either life-giving or self-defeating thoughts. 

No wonder God encourages to set our hearts and minds on things above – to get His perspective (Colossians 3:1-2).

Today, pay attention to your inner dialogue. The simple act of recognizing negative thoughts can keep them from spiraling downward. 

Then whisper a prayer, quote scripture, or sing a worship song. 

Doing so helps you turn up the voice of victory in your life.
