In the still quiet, do you allow your thoughts to run wild? Or do you take that opportunity to talk to God?
Do you sink back into your favorite plush lazy chair, kick your feet up and take advantage of the quiet time to relax? Or do you stay so busy that you do not allow yourself any down time?
All of these questions are definitely something to consider. If thoughts are running through your mind consuming you, and they are negative in nature, that leads to potential problems of stewing over situations where people have “done you wrong.” Does this bring you joy doing this or change the outcome of the situation? Surely neither one of these, so why allow something like this to zap your energy and take up space in your head? When negative thoughts try to creep into your quiet space, take that opportunity right then and talk to God about it. God is the only one that can make peace in those quiet moments you have alone with your thoughts. Turn it over to Him, and watch Him work wonders in your life over these hurtful situations you’ve endured.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking advantage of some leisure time to relax and rejuvenate your body and soul. However, if you stay so busy running from here or there, ask yourself what you are running from with all of your busyness. Perhaps it IS your quiet thoughts you’re trying to silence so they don’t consume you. Again, take it to God and leave it at His feet.
