Tail Spinning Thoughts
What a title I know !!! Yet it stands very true for me ! I have this ability to have 50 million things going through my head and set them aside to do something else ! With the intention to return to them and think them through or shut them off !!! Problem is I I often forget to do just those two simple things !!!!
So instead of the 50 million I woke up with I go to bed to add more the next morning !!!! Only to find myself very overwhelmed !!! As I was doing my devotion this morning I wasn't shocked to read that the Lord had the perfect solution ! Why wasn't I giving them over to Him ? Even if it does need my attention He still wants me to include Him! After all He isn't surprised by them , He knows they are there ! He just isn't going to make me include Him !!! My problem is I'm a very creative person so I tend to be all over the place , I can be doing school and see a milk jug and think of how to turn it into a awesome basket and still be on task .... Yet in my little mind I see no need to let God handle it such an unimportant thought ! After all He is God and He is busy curing cancer He doesn't care about my project ! However He does !!!! You know He created me, thats why I am who I am !!! So of course He wants me to share !!!!i guess my point is that we are all guilty of letting our thoughts get out of control ! Wether they are are good or bad thoughts ! We often think of ourselves as super human who needs to handle everything on our own ! Here is how my devotion started " Keep your focus on Me. I have gifted you with amazing freedom , including the ability to choose the focal point of your mind. Only the crown of My creation has such remarkable capability ; this is a sign of being made in My image !
I choose to make God my focal point , not to let my thoughts spin out of control, leading to frustration , overwhelmed , and spinning out of control ! I am after all made in Him image !!! I should take pride in that and Him .... So I choose to share all things with Him even petty things !!! With Him all things are possible !!! Even calming the storms of my mind !!!!
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
