Refuse to be Confused – March 9 Inspiration

at

Refuse to be confused! Easy to say, not so easy to do sometimes! Yet living in a state of confusion is frustrating and discouraging, so refusing to remain there is obviously a healthy decision. Refusing to remain in a state of confusion allows us to live more positively and move forward in life toward fulfilling our potential.

 

 

This is belatedly for Wednesday, March 9, inspirational thoughts…I’ve had company from WAY out of state (my son whom I haven’t seen for 7 years since he moved to New Mexico, and his wife, my only daughter-in-law, just meeting her for the first time!)

 

“Are you confused?

Is there something happening in your life right now

you don’t understand?

Or perhaps you’re baffled about the way

things have happened in your past.

Many people today suffer tremendously with confusion,

but that was never God’s plan.

He doesn’t cause your confusion–

He wants to stop it.

He doesn’t want you to try to figure out

everything that happens in your life.

He knows what is going on and why,

and He is in control.

That means you don’t have to worry and live in confusion.

It almost sounds too easy,

but you can have total freedom

from the torment of confusion

just by refusing the temptation to figure things out.

So trust God to take care of everything

that concerns you and enjoy a peaceful, happy life.”

–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”

My reflections:

I think sometimes it’s a retraining process to reject negativity, confusion, and every other evil thought that attempts to rent space in our heads. We really do need to reject the negativity by serving an eviction notice!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you ever suffer from bouts of confusion?

Do you find it easy to reject confusion?

    I do feel confused from time to time, as my spouse and I work on various caregiving situations. We are realizing, as we do this more and more, that things do work out in the end.
