The Power Behind the Thought

The winds began to pick up and lightning flashed through the sky. We bolted everything down preparing for another storm, one of many in the last few weeks.  This particular storm came with the threat of tornadoes. 

Suddenly, the unexpected happened. Everything settled down, and when I looked to the skies, it was an array of color. Even though the cloud gave a sense that a huge tornado was on the horizon, it was only a funnel shape cloud with no power behind it.

It reminded me of the way we create storms in our thoughts. We have no facts behind our assumptions.  If we mull it over long enough, we can make ourselves sick to the stomach with fear.  If we entertain a thought long enough, it takes on a life of its own and becomes our reality.

This is the reason Paul instructed the Christians in Corinth to take control of their thoughts. The Lord removes the power behind our imagination when we hand it over to Him. When we surrender to Him, suddenly the storm in our head is just a beautiful cloud formation in the sky...nothing else!

Sneak Peek at Back cover of book...

This will be the description on the back cover for my book....

"In an anxious world where many are seeking rest, this book shares the author’s journey of healing with vulnerability and truth. Though each new chapter builds on the previous one, each also stands alone and can be read for individual nuggets of truth, inspiration, comfort, and challenge.
Jesus wants us to find rest for our weary and heavy-laden souls (Matthew 11:28-29). This book invites the reader to find it in the comfort of the Savior’s arms."
