We each have a boatload of things on our mind. Finances, child rearing, employment, what’s for dinner, family issues, school, world events, health, appointments, our current administration, religion, maybe even addictions, etc.
Any one of a million things could be on our mind at given moment. And if you are like me, it’s not just one thing. It’s many things which make it very difficult for me to focus.
I woke up this morning in a not-so-good mood. I was irritated, anxious, and mad. It made me wonder what I dreamt in the night to put me in such a bad place.
In my devotion this morning, the writer suggested that I imagine myself sitting quietly on a bench with Jesus. To break the silence, Jesus kindly asks me, “What’s on your mind?”
What’s on your mind?
In my mind, I immediately yelled out a problem that has been heavy on my heart. It seemed to have come out of nowhere. As soon I made it known to Jesus though, I felt better. My anger and anxiety quieted down. I didn’t have a bad dream after all. I must have gone to sleep with the issue on my mind and then thought about it throughout the night.
I think it’s a great idea to picture yourself with Jesus. Go to that favorite place in your mind and sit next to Him. Just the two of you. Jesus breaks the silence and asks you what is on your mind. What is your response? What is your very first thought?
I hope you found this to be helpful. It seems too simple but it certainly gave me peace today. The first thing you think of is probably your heaviest burden. Give it to Jesus. If you deal with that one issue only during your prayer time, you should rejoice. If you cannot visualize Him sitting next to you, know that He is ever-present and will meet you wherever you are. ♥️
One thought on “What’s on your mind?”
It gives me peace knowing that he is there whenever I need him.
