James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Ugh, the scripture used to trouble me so badly. I wanted desperately not to be double-minded. Any trickle of unbelief would get me feeling worried. Oh no, I don’t want to be unstable in my faith. I want to fully believe the word of God. It was a long time before my perspective changed. I was focusing so much on not being double-minded, wish-washy with my faith that it was causing me to fear. That changed when I heard this word.

On a CD that I bought, the minister referenced this verse and said the word single-minded. Single-minded? Single rather than double? Yeah, how about focusing on being single-minded. God gave that to me. That felt like a better perspective. That perspective take the fear away and made it feel like I can truly believe. I am believing. My hope raised up and my spirit lifted up. Sometimes all it takes is just one word to change everything.

Securely fixated

Like a laser beam

My path is straight

Mind and soul connected

Forwardly gazing in step
