Can you relate to this?….
I start to pray…hyperactive brain fires up. I get distracted by everything I see–it doesn’t take much. So I close my eyes and immediately my brain fills with moving pictures and my “to do'” list. I apologize to God. I tell Him I’m so sorry I’m such a scatterbrain and can’t keep focused on what is important.
Then I smile ( I really did) and realize that He absolutely treasures me just. like. I. am!
He knows I love Him deeply, with abandon. He knows my desire is for His heart. And He knows I’m like a hyper four-year-old. And you know what? He takes great delight in me. So I just curl up in His lap–and BE!
Ahhhhh, the sweet release of not having to worry about performing for Jesus. Hyperactivity has been the bane of my existence. I was often criticized for it. But ya know what? God created me like this. And He thinks I’m just fine the way I am. When your heart is in the right place, He can work with the rest. lol
Isaiah 62:4 You shall no more be called Forsaken but you shall be called Hephzibah (my delight in is her),
for the Lord delights in you.
Verse 5 “As a Bridegroom rejoices over His bride,
so will your God rejoice over you.”
Are any of you, my readers, hyperactive? Do you have trouble when you try to pray? Tell me about it.
I hope you are well. Until next time,
