I‘ve heard it said, that a woman’s mind is like Heathrow airport. Lots of arrivals and departures. Planes at Heathrow. Thoughts for the woman’s mind. At Heathrow they have planes arriving and departing every minute. We have as many if not more thoughts!
This morning as I was brushing my teeth, I had a weird moment as I became aware of the number of thoughts I was processing quickly….
Mental note – Library books go back today. Oh must write in Son’s reading log. Hmm boys have soccer training after school, must remember to pick them up from it. Wonder whether we should sign up for more training next term. That led onto what to make for lunch, thoughts on catching up with friends, to mental shopping lists, plans for later.
There are thoughts that we have though, that should not be given a landing zone in our mind. Those thoughts of doubt or negativity. Thoughts that put us down and say “who do you think you are?”. Thoughts that say you can’t do it, or you’re not worth anything. These thoughts contradict what God says about us. They contradict the truth. These are the thoughts that need to be told that our mind is a no fly zone. These are the thoughts that are certainly should not be granted permission to land.
Our thoughts need to line up with the Word of God, and what God thinks and says about us. These are the thoughts that we can let linger, that can have stopovers!
Time to talk to Air Traffic Controller!
