I have always struggled with my “wandering mind”. Left in silence as I perform mundane tasks, it often wanders to criticizing others or allowing my self-righteousness to seep in. I heard a sermon once about filling our minds with Jesus. Matthew 12:34 says that out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. I want that to be the same with my thought life! So, while I used to look at sinkfulls of dishes as a drag and a reason for being cranky, I now use the time to memorize hymns or Scripture. Truly makes this task a delight now! 🙂 Thought I’d share what I’m memorizing this week. (I’m a slow memorizer, so it may be awhile for this one…)
Here’s the same song again – added it to our shower – another great place to focus on my memorizing, lol! (My boys all like to make fun of me for this one…) 🙂
Back to the kitchen now – Thank You, Lord, for food to eat, dishes to eat off of, and time & hands to wash them. AMEN 🙂
What do you do to keep your mind from wandering away from Jesus?
