Captive Thoughts

"We can gather our thoughts, but the Lord gives the right answer."  -Proverbs 16: 1

As a woman, I think I think too much.  I don't believe men have that problem!!  I never understood before how a man can sit and not really be thinking about anything at all.  I used to bug my husband all the time, "What are you thinking?  Why are you making that face?  What's going on in your head?"  Now, after five years of marriage, I don't bother to ask that question.  Because if he has something important he's thinking about, he tells me.  And if he says he's not thinking about anything--he's really not!  I wish I could do that!  I can easily allow my thoughts to rule and guide me.    I have to continually "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." (2 Cor. 10:5)  Joyce Meyers puts it this way, "think about what you are thinking about".  So when those random negative, critical, irritable little thoughts sneak in on me, I can start bringing to mind the Word of God.  He's always the answer.

Thanks for finding me, Joye! I have missed you too. What a beautiful family you have been given - and much patience too I'm sure! I have prayed not to be given twins - I'm overwhelmed just thinking about #3 arriving in two weeks and my youngest is already two!

Anyway, I hope we can stay in touch!
