nerves + fear.

so much of it is just nerves.
and fear.
and my mind filling up
and then trickling over
and eventually overflowing
with the what ifs.
as if i need to be fully prepared
for each and every one of those what ifs.
just in case.

the wondering can consume me.

but i have the mind of Christ.
“For who has understood the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”
But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:16

and i must take captive every thought.
and give it to Him.
all of it.

when i invite Him into my fears.
when i say it out loud.
when i say the fears
and let Him flood my mind instead.
let Him come in and take over.
trusting in Him.
and being grateful.
gratefulness is the key.
so very grateful
for what He has given me.
all which i do not deserve.
one bit.
and grateful for each unpromised breath.
and moment.
and day.

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion
raised against the knowledge of God,
and take every thought captive to obey Christ
