Drama Drain

Something had really been bothering me and I was trying to take the high road but after a while it gets hard. I can usually hold my tongue because I don't want to have to apologize but I still have the thoughts. There is nothing that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts."

After months of the same "issue" God softly told me one day that I was spending more time thinking about the issue than Him! What hurt so much was that He was exactly right! No issue, thing or person deserves to be thought of more than God! It was a joyous conviction. I did not want to be that person and God helped me change my prayers and I began to see things happen.

I began saying, "I trust You with this, God. I thank You for bringing the truth to light." He is answering my prayers. He protects me by protecting my ears and my mind. "Your mind is a garden. Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds." Instead of the weeds choking out the good things I change my focus from the problem to the Problem Solver.

"Life is like an elevator: on your way up, sometimes you have to stop and let some people off."
