Did you know you have 3000 thoughts a day? A commercial said so; it must be so.
Love Princess who was lounging on the couch after a hard day in middle school hearing the commercial said, with a touch of amazement, “Only 3000? I am sure I have more!”
In fact, many a mom may agree. A friend told me this week that I was always thinking. Always processing. Does that mean more that 3000 thoughts a day?
Yet, I wondered, like so many times, I began to tie it to God and my relationship with Him, His Glory and His ways.
How many thoughts a day does He have? How many are about me? About my kids, about others, about His children, about the world? Too many to count I think.
Even scarier is not how many thoughts I have a day but what kind of thoughts are they? The lies, the rants, the prayers, the plans, the reflective.
In evening prayers with the love gals, with their adult siblings eons ago, I prayed for the Holy Spirit to help them take every thought captive unto Him. Those words are still spoken in the quiet of the night along with,
“Let the words of my mouth and the mediations of our hearts be acceptable to thee O Lord, our strength and our redeemer.”
Words of reminder so needed each day as we are bombarded with media and life. For me and for mine.
