Have you ever had so many things racing through your mind that you couldn’t make any kind of rational decision, much less hear the voice of God about it or get His leading? I have! In my mind the conversation sort of sounds like this: “If I do it this way, then that will happen. Or I won’t be able to do that thing. But if I choose this other way, then it might lead to this—or I’ll look like a fool. But if I don’t do this, then there won’t be enough to make sure that happens” (and on it goes).
Know what I mean? It seems like fifty things need to happen before you can go in the right direction, and you don’t even know where to start.
I’ve learned that when I get to the point that there are too many thoughts in my head, then it’s time to just stop. I know I’ve gotten too far off track and I’m trying to do too many things in my own strength. At that point I need to shut everything off and just get with the Lord to find out where I am and what needs to be done.
