Scoop Up Those Mindless Scatterings

Body floating in space like some cellular formation gathering molecules as it moves aimlessly along, seemingly mindlessly. Is it really? Mindless? Or did God design every bodily system with purpose, so that every cell, every molecule has it’s objective? Every part of the body is cellular~ heart cells, liver cells, eye cells, etc. Each has a specialty built into it. Every system of the body has been carefully designed with its own pattern and goal.

Just so, my life is not some haphazard wandering. It has an intentional goal bred into its DNA by Creator God! Jeremiah 29:11 says it’s a good goal:

Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you,
says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace
and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.

(MSG) I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you,
not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

So I know, Father, everything I encounter in this life, be it positive or negative, will turn into a blessing that will increase my character and create inner beauty. It will do this because I give it to You to handle. Good will not cause a spirit of pride to rise in me; bad will be transformed into positive results by You. I cannot lose! You are an awesome Dad!!

To be totally truthful, there are times when my trust and careful thought is overlooked. . . like when a huge task was put on me that I did not want; my emotions became involved and my mind scattered into mindless fear, tension and depression. I know it’s part of human nature, but sleepless nights made for crabby days.  

Thankfully, because I’ve given my heart to Jesus, and Holy Spirit lives in me, those mindless scatterings were scooped up and put back into proper perspective. I was able to settle down and see the situation with God in it. As my life with Jesus moves along, I am thankful that those times are less frequent and peace is restored more quickly.

I talk a good line, but I am just as vulnerable as others to surprise traps set by the enemy. Have you recently found yourself vulnerable to his attacks?
