Spooked

   I have been I woke up late today. Last night I heard what sounded like a crash from my basement and that spooked me.

I don’t know how to get down to the basement… no it’s not a basement, but just under the house I’m not sure what’s down there but the A/C guys went down there to fix the unit. I started listening for any sounds of people moving about and that’s not the best since this house creaks like nobody’s business and it can create noises to feed whatever you fancy.

I wondered if I should ask Arielle or Christy over because I was pretty spooked because I was the only one in the house, but I decided against it.

I put on some worship music instead and when I felt better I put a brown noise on that would mask the sound of the house creaking and still my imagination from running wild.

I read a little and went to sleep, but because of that noise, I was late to sleep and late to rise. So I’ve been rushing through my schedule today and doing things halfway because I don’t want to miss anything especially not drawing.

I could have been more productive if I didn’t let my imagination wander around for a while.

That’s the source of my largest distraction; my imagination. I can go anywhere, and do anything in my mind. I do a lot of useless planning for things that will never happen there and try to resolve problems I will never have.

It’s really ridiculous and I’m working on recognizing when it happens so I can let it go and focus on the task at hand.

Imagination is good used in the right way and at the right time.

When I spend time with God I use my imagination to see Him and create the atmosphere where we spend time.

He uses my imagination to show me pictures and give me dreams.

You can’t go anywhere or do anything you haven’t first seen in your mind.

You will never make banana bread if you don’t first have the thought to make it. Likewise, you will never cheat on your spouse if you don’t entertain the thought of it.

I like to be intentional with my thought in life since it guides my actions.

If I get a bad thought I deny the thought and refuse to think about it.

Not all thoughts come from you some come from God and some from the enemy.

If I see in my mind’s eye a scenario that isn’t good like me getting in a car crash or fighting with family I will recognize it’s the enemy trying to let me see and grasp a vision He wants for my life, but I use my authority and imagination to reverse the picture in my mind and I will openly rebuke it speaking the promises of God in its stead.

Comfort

 When I spent time with the Lord a few nights ago I was in agony and needed His help. He comforted me through imagination. He reminded me of His promises and showed me what I was working towards and the fruit of my labor if I am faithful.

Imagination can be very good and very bad. It’s like a tool and you have to learn how to use it. I’m pretty late in my schedule so I’m going to hop off here. Blessings to you all!
