Thoughts Out of Control


Rein in the thoughts.

Out of control again.

Imagining rejection magnified.

Projecting out to the worst case.

Assuming motivations.

Judging motives.

Inviting self-pity.

Beating dead horses.

Learn and let go.

Believe the best of others.

Trust God.

Rest in redemption.

Give grace without question.

Cover it all, Jesus.

Cover it all with grace.

And you have.

All the brokenness.

All the selfish choices.

All the regrets.

The weakness I have right now.

At this moment, I don’t measure up

And that is covered by grace also.

Oh, the powerful blood of Jesus.

How can I realize all it has done for me?

The resurrection sealed my freedom.

Freedom from condemnation.

From having to answer for the stubborn wilfulness of my heart.

Jesus answered for me.

Perfect sacrifice.

Willingly given.

For one who was born thinking of self most.

My heart is yours.

Remake me.

Jesus, shine in spite of my weakness.

Shine more because of it.

My weakness allows your power

To be strong in me.

Shine Jesus.

But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you,for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

We all struggle with out of control thoughts and feeling broken and weak. Share your struggles here or at Living By Grace.
