I don’t know about everyone else but there are times when I seem to have a fuzzy brain. Usually it is a result of overcommitment, lack of sleep and middle-aged estrogen. Last night, I stood in the kitchen door flicking the light switch, trying to turn off the kitchen light. The problem was that I was flicking the hallway switch – no wonder I couldn’t get it to work.
How many other things are there in my life that aren’t working because I am not using the right resources? Sometimes I become overwhelmed because I feel as though I am just not enough to accomplish what is before me. You know what? I’m not. I think that when I become most discouraged it is because I am looking at me to solve the problem or move the mountain. In my fuzzy brain, I often forget/overlook the fact that it is not me that achieves but that it is God’s strength through me. It is not my power but the faithfulness of God that moves mountains.
I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
I can’t imagine ever needing to move a mountain, but I can vividly imagine feeling as though I have mountain’s worth of things to move/do.
Day by day, situation by situation, I need to be constantly giving everything in my life back to the Lord. Whether it is praying about a decision to be made, giving up an activity in lieu of having time for Bible study or practicing faithfulness in my prayer life: the way to clear my fuzzy brain is to allow God the time to work in my life.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
