Uncluttered Cluttered Mind


My brain is like a lint brush.

It sees a little speck & grabs it, & then the next speck

& before you know it is filled with so may specks

that it is hard to even think straight.

My cluttered brain. My precious cluttered brain that I have learned to laugh about

as it continues to be filled without my even trying.

So I blow out the memory on computers.

So I have a gazillion files as I prepare for an upcoming conference.

So I use it for good when it could be so used for not so good.

I could get mad it at, when I am trying to sleep as it won't stop.

Yet I pray through scriptures.

I could get mad at it when I am trying to edit my writings.

Yet I have to TRUST GOD in the moment as HE edits for me.

I could get mad it at, when 10000000s of ideas just pop up about one little thing.

Yet I have to laugh or I would drive myself nutty.

GOD created me. GOD created you.

So unique with our strengths, yet at times they are what become one of our weaknesses.

I am sensitive, so compassion for others is a strength.

I am sensitive, so one wrong look my way makes me crumble.

I am creative, so ideas come out of left field that blow me away.

I am creative, so ideas don't stop coming that they become overwhelming.

I have a lot of words to say, which is good when someone wants to listen.

I have a lot of words to say, which isn't so good when silence is what someone would rather hear.

I am one big bundle of strengths & weaknesses that make me me.

You are on big bundle of strengths & weaknesses that make you you.

GOD created you & I

because HE SO LOVES

so that when HE SEES the whole package

HE LOVES because HE SEES beyond what our eyes see~

“Do you believe that the GOD of JESUS loves you beyond worthiness &unworthiness,

beyond fidelity & infidelity—that HE loves you in the morning sun & in the evening rain—

that HE loves you when your intellect denies it,

your emotions refuse it, your whole being rejects it.

Do you believe that GOD loves without condition or reservation & loves you this moment

as you are & not as you should be" (Brennan Manning)

Oh what a mess I am at times

& maybe you are a mess at times too~

but

"Thanks be to God, who delivers me through JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD!..." (Romans 7:24)

because of HIS GRACE~

"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in CHRIST JESUS" (Romans 8:1)

Because

IN HIM

I am &

"YOU ARE MORE" (listen to the song below)
