My Thoughts Are Not Your Thoughts
Have you ever wondered if you were a little crazy? Don't tell anyone, but I have. 😂Maybe it's because I'm a deep thinker. Sometimes that can get you into trouble because then you tend to over think every situation. There have been times that I lay in bed at night and vocalize my crazy thoughts to my poor husband and afterward realize that he must think I have some serious issues. So then I ask him if he does think that I have some serious issues (because I am laying next to him over thinking) and he hugs me tight and whispers "not at all" then rolls over and within seconds is fast asleep. In the mean time~there I lay. Thinking. At times, if we aren't careful, our minds can get us into trouble, especially if you are a pre-menopausal woman like me who sometimes has trouble sleeping at night. All kinds of things can pop into your head and suddenly you are worried about issues you probably wouldn't have even thought about in the busy day time hours. It's at these times that I am so thankful for God's words to me. When the rest of the world is fast asleep and my husband lays next to me snoring~I am thankful that the Bible tells me that my Heavenly Father never sleeps or slumbers. He stays awake with me. He holds my hand and my heart when it frets. When my brain won't shut off and my thoughts become scattered~ again God reminds me that His thoughts are not my thoughts neither are His ways my ways. He asks me to set my thoughts on things above, not on things on the earth and He promises me that if I think on these things; things that are lovely, things that are true, things that are honest, just and pure, that the peace of God that passes all understanding will keep not only my heart, but my mind and all those crazy thoughts inside it. So I snuggle in closer to my husband under the covers and listen to my Savior whisper psalms to my heart and then I drift off to sleep under a blanket of peace that truly passes all my pre-menopausal understanding.
