“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You”
My mind is not a peaceful place most of the time. I often try to find the cause and effect of a situation in which I find myself. I think ALL the time. I often say I need an off switch for my brain so I can sleep better. I don’t have a nothing box in my brain. I wish I did, believe me. But thoughts always creep in and before I know it I’ve found myself way farther down the rabbit hole than I ever intended. I often can’t even remember how I get from Thought A to Thought B.
I need ‘thought discipline’. So every thought leads back to my Father. I want my every thought to ooze trust in Him. I want a peaceful mental state because I know beyond a doubt that God is with me. If I put into practice fully trusting God, my mind would settle. Trust would calm the raging storm in my mind that never seems to cease. I want to find my Anchor in my storm. I want to be so fully devoted to Him that the thought-waves stop crashing into every moment and instead I can serenely look about me knowing He is in control.
I’m not there yet. But I trust that with time and prayer, I’ll be able to bask in the peace which my Father brings.
