Today, I’m thankful for busyness. I have a lot to do. It is great to have an occupied mind. When my mind is occupied, it keeps it from wandering into dangerous territory. Of course, my mind is pretty amazing at being able to wander while it is occupied. So, I’m also thankful for the ability to redistract from negative thoughts and the ability to call my friends when I can’t get my mind where it needs to be.
My goal today is to keep my planner with me and march through the responsibilities I need to fill today. Further, to reach out to my friends and support if I start being distracted by fantasy, compulsion, addiction, sin.
Holy God, thank You for giving me responsibilities. Thank You for using me to accomplish Your work. Give me the strength and the discipline today to keep my mind on You, Your people, Your tasks. I’m all Yours today; do with me as You will.
