With ALL our MIND


You are dust, 
and to dust you shall return.


and believe the GOSPEL+. 
+  +  +

Most HOLY and Most Merciful ABBA... 

We confess to THEE and to one another and to the whole communion of saints in Heaven and on earth and before Your Heavenly Host... 

that we have sinned
by our own fault

in thought, word, and deed; 

by what we have DONE
and by what we have

 As it is written:

Thou shalt love The LORD thy GOD, The ELOHIM, with ALL thy heart, with ALL of thy soul, with ALL of thy mind, and with ALL  thy strength.  

This is the first and great commandment.

So now, we confess to THEE, O LORD:

We have FAILED to love THEE 
with ALL 
of our Mind.

Where do we stop stray dogs from entering our home?

  AT THE DOOR of our house.  

Likewise, our MIND is a DOOR.  We stop temptations to sin, derogatory thoughts, urges to rebel against rules --- domestic home rules, public ordinances, and GOD'S HOLY ways --- at the DOOR of our MIND. 

But The LORD has given us a WATCH-DOG :  His+ Word. It will keep the "stray dogs" of the world away from  our MIND.   Let us honor this Divine Protector well, and set it to WATCH OVER THE ENTRANCE.

  Casting down imaginations, 
and every high thing 
that exalteth itself 
against the knowledge of GOD, 

and bringing 

into captivity every thought 

to the obedience of CHRIST;
 2 Corinthians 10:5

Let us Listen to the Apostle's admonishments about what to DO with our MIND:
 Let this mind be in you, 
which was also
 in Y'SHU+ the M'SHIKHA:

Who+, being in the form of GOD, 
thought it not a thing to be held onto 
to be equal with GOD:

But made HIMSELF+ of no reputation, 
and took upon HIM+ the form of a servant, 
and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, 
HE+ humbled himself, 
and became obedient unto death, 
even the death of the cross. 
Philippians 2: 5-8
+  +  +

 Let us pray:

 Heavenly FATHER, take my mind away from worldly concerns. YOU already know the things I have need of  before I ask. 

Your Word is TRUTH.  Sanctify my mind, so that I agree with Your Word in thought and in purpose and in deed.  

Grant me an understanding of Your Word so that I can replace my earth-bound thoughts with Your Word. 

I ask to have the Mind of CHRIST, as promised, so that I may perfectly love YOU and worthily magnify Your Holy Name, through The LORD JESUS CHRIST. 
+  +  +

 Create in me a clean heart, 
O GOD and renew a right spirit within me. 
Cast me not away 
from Thy+ Presence; 

and take not Thy RUACH ha KADOSH 
from me. 

Restore unto me 
the joy of Thy+ SALVATION; 
and uphold me with Thy free spirit.
Psalm 51
+  +  +

Ashes to Ashes,

Dust to Dust

in sure and certain hope
of the Resurrection

unto Eternal Life
our LORD.
