“I’m losing my mind.” How many times have you thought that just this week? It is when the simple things become monstrous catastrophes that we feel like we are losing it. “Where are my car keys?” “Why did I come into this room?” “What am I supposed to be doing right now?”
I don’t think these wonderful reminders of our humanity can just be chocked up to getting older. I think as we get older our lives can get so busy, so complicated, that we succumb to moments of mindless wandering as a survival mechanism. Your mind crashes and needs a reboot.
Last week, I took a morning and went to clear my mind. It was cluttered, overwhelmed and tired. I got out of my environment and got into God’s (I went outside). I soaked in His quiet presence and I found myself feeling more like “me” than I had for awhile.
I was so thankful for it. It reminded me that:
1. I need to do that more (make it a priority.)
2. I may have a hard time figuring out how to keep my mind focused and clear, but God is really good at it.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalms 139:23, 24 NLT)
Where do you go to get with God?
When was the last time you were there?
What do you need to do to make that happen?
