I was jokingly saying on the air the other day that God has given me the gift of overthinking because I’m able to think about things from so many different angles. My wife is facing some tough things at work right now (she’s perfectly fine), but that had both of us thinking and worrying and stressing.
Kristen James reminded me that God gives us a sound mind, which is true, and we can take comfort in knowing that. But this is what we all do: overthink.
Ever get stuck in a thought loop? You think one thing, that leads to another thing, then before you know it it’s 3am and you’re just staring at the ceiling, not getting any sleep. Does that sound familiar? Yeah, well, we’ve all been there. But here’s what you can think about: God’s got it. We’re told in the Bible not to worry, right? This is something I need to remind myself a lot. God’s in control. No matter what it is we’re stressed over, God has it.
So, if you’re an overthinker like me, remember that God knows what’s on your mind and He’s working on it. I’d love to hear your thoughts. (Ha! See what I did there?) Feel free to reach out – firstname.lastname@example.org.
2 TIMOTHY 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
