“I think I’m going crazy!” Come on, you know you’ve said it, or at least thought it more than once since you took on the title of Mom. I know I did. Still do, on any given day.
The mind of a wife and mother has about a million things going on, all at the same time. “Get your shoes on, we need to leave in ten minutes. What do you mean you can’t find your shoes? (Why can’t I find a system to teach my kids to put everything in place?) Where did I put my phone? Wait. Do I have all I need on my grocery list? What time was that appointment? Why is there no gas in my car?” I could go on all day.
Our minds are very complex, and let’s admit it, we are pretty good at multitasking and getting a lot accomplished just through our thinking.
But our minds are also the place we get tripped up. We have a very real enemy out to destroy us and our influence. When we have so many jumbled thoughts, we start hearing the lies more than believing the truth of who we are and Who He is.
The Bible is very clear on this: If we belong to Christ, we have His mind! (1 Corinthians 2:16) Not human wisdom, but the power of God.
That thought pretty much blows my mind. We have the mind of the Almighty? The Creator of heaven and earth?
We can choose our thoughts! We can reject the lies of the enemy and agree with the Truth of our loving Father. We can set our mind on things above--where Christ is.
Jesus, I pray that my mind will be set on You, not on my human understanding. From here, things seem a little bleak and overwhelming. Will you help me set my mind on the things above and not on what I see and feel?
