Too much information. Too many options. Too many ideas.
I am not arrogant enough to believe that I am the first one to think something. I am wise enough to know that just because it’s my first time thinking it doesn’t mean that it’s the first time that it’s been thought. I know enough to know that even if I was the first human to think it, that God knew all my thoughts before I was even created.
My life is changing. Last year I got married and began this blog. Since then, my priorities have changed. The first things that I think are, “does this honor God? Does this honor my husband?” And that is where I find my standard. That is how I decide. With all the thoughts and all the information and all the things that continue to happen around me and in our world, I had to find a way to get my mind right. I had to find a way to ensure my priorities.
So, before I speak, before I act, on my best days (because if I’m being honest, I fail often) I ask myself those two questions (especially when it’s too much).
