I’ve always had a busy mind. A worrier, an over-analyzer, or just a deep thinker – I’m still not entirely sure what I’d call myself. 🙂 Although the worrying and over-thinking is something I’m working on, I can also be grateful for how these characteristics of mine have affected my faith journey.
When I feel like I’m at my weakest, I’ve learned there are two directions I can go: the first is that I can choose to let my thoughts swirl around me. I can let them all sink in until I find myself overwhelmed or discouraged. But the second choice I could make is to turn to my Lord. That means I must forget my pride and my “I can do this/analyze this/get through this on my own” attitude. It can be hard to do, especially if these thought patterns of worry or over-thinking are a habit! But in those moments when I choose to turn towards my Savior and draw close to Him rather than push away, I am filled with peace and reminders of His promises.
Here are the Bible verses that help me when my mind is busy!

Why do you complain, Jacob?
Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord;
my cause is disregarded by my God”?
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:27-31
