I must’ve had Scarlett on the brain.
We played Clue over and over and because I loved the color of the game piece.
I decided, I’ll be Scarlett.
Then, I woke and thought of Scarlett.
O’Hara, that is.
I woke imagining distress and I figured out myself, figured me out, my ways.
I’m either imagining the horrific or I’m deciding…oh well, my hands are tied.
What will be, will be.
Oh, Lord let it not be hard.
So, yeah, I recognized my ways and decided “no more of that thinking that way…nothing or all, catastrophe or avoidance…no more of that!”
And it began with a waking thought, an affirmation.
People may question this truth.
But, I assure you it’s true. I linger long enough before rising and a song or a verse comes to mind, says good morning Lisa, here’s what you need today.
This truth happened today:
Fear is not from God.
Fear of what I do not know, cannot know
Is NOT from God.
A sound mind…one settled and set on truth, trust, assurance.
One reined back in towards what’s certain and true.
He’s got the whole world in His hands.
This is true.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7 NLT
Rest now, oh wandering and imaginatively, tragically creative mind.
Tell yourself stories of good, oh, sound mind, rest.
