When My Mind's a Rickety Truck. . .

A rickety truck rumbles down the street, and between the wind and the lurching bumps, things from the back bounce away to the highway and the grassy shoulders. When the driver arrives home and realizes some things have gone astray, he sits and ponders what might be lost?

As he remembers an important item, he returns to his truck retracing his route  to try and retrieve it. Eyes searching intently, he finally spots the shine of the prize and quickly parks and returns it to his truck, but this time to the front seat for safety.

There are times when my mind seems to be that rickety truck and as it moves between one important task to another, it begins to run too quickly between synapses and thoughts get lost. Knowing there was something I was gonna do before getting distracted, I sit to ponder what it was. Then, ah ha, I see it shinning and grab hold and bring it fully into remembrance. “Oh yes, that’s what I was gonna do” and immediately begin to finish the task before it gets lost again.

My beautiful mother passed away from Alzheimer’s disease, a nasty attacker that left her without the ability to speak. It’s awful watching a loved one being a prisoner in their own body as they slowly slip away from us. Can you imagine how this affects me when my brain resembles that rickety old vehicle? A touch of fear.

Times of fear like this require a strong dependence and trust in our Creator. I always retreat to the Bible where God tells me how much He loves me:

Zephaniah 3:17 The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.

My favorite verse during these times is this:
1 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP)
For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge?

and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.

“WE have the mind of Christ”. This Scripture is always one claimed when I cannot remember something. It reassures me as I stop and claim it and quickly forgottens become remembereds! And that old devil fear evaporates.

Do you ever get tired and find your mind behaving as a old bouncing truck? What do you do?
