offering and occupy

“Occupy your mind with good thoughts,
or the enemy will fill them with bad ones.
Unoccupied, they cannot be.”

St. Thomas More

The Lord is inviting you to come and gaze into His eyes of mercy.
He’s offering you hope for a fresh start.
Oh, I pray that the eyes of your heart would be enlightened,
and that the darkness of shame would be chased away.
Shame keeps your eyes cast down.
But God is cupping your face in His hands and calling you to look up.

Lisa Brenninkmeyer
from her book Be Still: A Daily Devotional
