Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is it’s under current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away. Marcus Aurelius
A word to the wise: Don’t waste your time wishing it will go away, time will pass with or without you; we might as well put it to good use as best we can.
I do everything I can to catch my passing thoughts. Especially the one’s that have me saying, “I should have followed my first mind,” as if I have two. I finally realized how to recognize thoughts that enter my mind that is meant to help me, and they always come as a warning before something happens. Now, I know that is when the Holy Spirit is having its say.
I “Hold on to That Thought;” I know God is talking directly to me.
How many times have you decided to do something and your heart tells you not to do that thing? It could be as simple as, “Don’t sit that glass there, it will fall.” So you heard that and you almost obeyed, but you decided if you place it a certain way it will be just fine, only to knock it over or someone else in a manner that never entered your mind.
Too late, you should have held on to what was in your heart and not to your own understanding.
Now your thought is “Something told me not to do that.” How many times does it take for us to get the message? How many times do we have to go down the same road and find the same results? Nothing worthwhile.
How many times have you been told in your heart don’t go here or there and you go anyway, just to lose something, maybe your life? The things I talk about are not just passing thoughts, they are what I learned from having a relationship with Jesus Christ, our Overseer, and Protector. I have learned how to hear Him by listening, capturing, then holding on to that thought.
Your first mind or whatever that little birdie told you just may be the Spirit of The Lord giving a heads up on things to be aware of. Maybe its time to Hold on that Thought? Hold on to whats in your heart, and follow it, for that’s where the true measure of a man lies.
It’s Something to Think About!
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving us early warnings in hopes we avoid the Wiles of the Devil. It is in Jesus name that we pray. Amen
