Sharing an Insight – Lesson 7

There is a wise old saying which says, “You can’t stop the birds from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building a nest in your hair”.  There are often unsolicited thoughts that go through our minds for a myriad of reasons, but the big question for me is how can I prevent them from taking root, from occupying my mind and gradually taking up residence there?  All Satan had to do was plant the “seed thought’ in Eve’s mind.  All David had to do was start to dream and to imagine what the outcome could be as he looked over the railing of his porch.  Thank you, Holy Spirit, that when I cannot seem to turn my mind off, You are there to reassure me that You are able and that You will be the One who will give me the courage to admit my weakness and to renew my mind with thoughts that are pleasing in Your sight.
