Our mind is like a refrigerator. When we open the door a light comes on, yet we’re not brave enough to discover all that’s inside.
That give hope
But to those
That make it
Hard to cope,
Notice your thoughts and feelings. Observe their sources. Some are self-generated, but if you don’t want a particular thought or feeling, that’s a good indication that you’re not the source of it.
People aren’t feelings, thoughts, desires, words, and actions. They’re observers of those things and choosers of which ones to accept.
If we don’t monitor, observe, and control our thoughts, feelings, and desires, they’ll be a tangled mess. If we allow our mind and emotions to run on autopilot, we’ll be ever unaware of what’s driving our behavior. Instead, we can observe our internal environment and alter it so that our feelings and desires work to empower us not to enslave us.
Inner fog, both mental and emotional, often keeps us blind to what’s really going on inside and around us. Inner observation (mindfulness) helps us become aware of what’s happening inside of us and to discover ways to improve it. If we don’t like what is streaming in our mind and emotions, we can persistently work to change it.
The fact that you exist is amazing. You’re free to appreciate that you’re alive and to enjoy the wonder of it all. In a world full of wonder and amazement, preoccupation with self-protection is a big distraction.
Theology tries to analyze and evaluate God with the human mind. Worship observes and adores Him with the heart. If you will begin to frequently observe and obey your conscience, you’ll soon begin to recognize the voice of God.
Understanding music theory is no substitute for enjoying a song. Understanding theology is no substitute for enjoying Jesus!
Is being aware
You look within,
God’s speaking in there
