Have you ever just spent a day, or night, sitting staring into space with your mind running so fast you could hardly hear yourself think?
I do this almost daily! I am always daydreaming, thinking of something else while I am somewhere else, and I don't even think about sleep anymore....
I have often tried to "turn my mind off" and it doesn't work. Sometimes, I think about so much I loose track of where I am or what I am doing. I would loose track of where I was going, but I never have that anyway. LOL I get headaches trying to figure it all out.
I write things in a journal, that helps alot. Excpet when I sit down to read it and then say to myself "What in the world was I think'n". A lot of my thoughts turn to what I am doing at that point in my life and where I want to be. I am sure that a lot of you can relate to this. We all want something more out of life or maybe even something better. I don't sit around and "wish" for things, nothing like that. I am very happy with who I am and where I am. But, I'd be lieing if I didnt' admit that I strive to find something that would make my life a little easier. Especially for my daughters. I hate that they have to struggle so much from day to day.
Anyway, I want to get to the point here before my fingers start listening to the other voices in my head and I forget where I was going with all this...
It hit me the other day; while I am spending this time thinking of new ways to "make my life easier", "sort through my problems", etc...Am I noticing anything around me? If I am missing things around me because I am so concerned with the thoughts (and voices) in my head, then what am I missing?! I could be missing out on the chance that God is giving me to actually answer some of those questions in my head! I am listening to my own self ( and many other voices) instead of shuting up and listening to my Creator!
SO.....just a small shout out to ya....
Shut Up - Listen - and be ready for the answers!!!

I can honestly say that no one has ever called me "normal"! That is just fine with me! God created me to stand out, be different, be weird, and not blend in with the world.
There are definately many personalities floating around in my mind. This makes for quite an interesting day with me! It is "Grand Central Station" up there! I have even 'named them'! (Don't send in the troops just yet)
The great thing about having such diversity is that there is never a dull moment with me! I always make sure that heading up this little party in my mind is the Lord God Himself!
God has shown me how to embrace the 'fun' inside me and use it to better His Kingdom! I have found that I don't have to be a 'stick in the mud' to be a Christian. I am a child of God! I am a Chrsitian! I am a follower of Christ! I AM HIS! Every day I am working toward becoming a better Disciple! I will NEVER be perfect - but I am SAVED; so that is all that matters!!
