Is Your Imagination Working Overtime?

Our son, Matt, has often said, “Our family can go into Grief Mode at the drop of a hat.” Unfortunately, he is right. If the phone rings at an unexpected hour, my first thought is “Someone died.” Before I answer the phone, I can be planning a funeral. If one of our children is not home by the expected hour, I immediately start imagining they are in trouble. If someone states that they need to talk to me, I immediately imagine I am in trouble. I spend the ensuing time thinking, “What did I do wrong?”
A verse that I often quote is Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusts in You.”

Think About This: “The only things we can keep are the things we freely give to God. What we try to keep for ourselves is just what we are sure to lose.” ―
This Week’s Verse to Memorize: And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. –Psalm 9:10
