I’m known for overthinking things and living in my head, and I’m honestly working on stopping. More so now because these past few days I’ve been letting my thoughts control me instead of me controlling them. I let them lead me to thinking the worst of a situation that was great in reality. So I lost having peace and happiness based on the fear of what could happen.
Last night I was tired and drained from my thoughts and I knew all I could do is pray and wait for Jesus to give me a word on what I should do. I sat there for a while reading and praying when my friend messaged me for advice. She explained her situation and I wrote back my thoughts on it and I heard Jesus say read what you wrote, that’s your answer. We have to let Jesus handle every area of our lives and live in the peace He gives daily.
My pastor preached a sermon about how the enemy gets to us through our thoughts because Jesus has our hearts. So he creates confusion, fear, and anxiety to make us lose trust in God. However, in Hebrews he says he will not fail us. So we have no need to worry or try to figure out the future when he has everything set.
Now when I feel myself getting lost in my thoughts or feelings I ask myself who am I listening to? Is it the one who’s all about doubt and confusion or the one who loves me and cares for me? Our thoughts may always be all over the place, but that doesn’t mean we have to be.
