Overthinking is universal and common. Add in health issues and it can get magnified quickly. Our KING gets minimized at the end of “overthinking.” All the chatter in our head gets louder and that makes our KING smaller, in our minds.
We all have caught ourselves getting lost in our heads, sometimes with perfectionism, rumination, or judgment.
Last week I heard someone say, “If we are bashing those in our lives, we are bashing our lives.” Wow, can our minds get cluttered. We can get lost in there. I know, reality can be a bit much sometimes.
That is why it is good to have a good clean deliberate focus to invite into our minds. Lately, I reactivated my Audible account to refocus my thoughts. I also dusted off my Whole Tones CDs to pull in wholesome sound frequencies.
This last week I have listened to a book by Mark Twain that my mind got gloriously lost in. I also played my Whole Tones frequency lullabies to lull me to sleep every night last week. Incredible results. It has been easier to focus on Jesus, my King. Probably because I uncluttered my mind a bit.
The Lord does not go anywhere, instead, it is my going off on a mind-bender. I just have a habit of getting caught up in my overthinking instead of being perfectly caught up in my relationship with my King and Savior.
That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.~ 1 Timothy 4:10 NIV
My precious Christian counselor introduced me to an insightful blind lady. She proves that it does not take sight to have vision, to be insightful, to shine the light of Jesus.
