I am somewhere between being a busybody and an intellectual junkie! Although there are benefits to seeking intellectual challenges and mentally-stimulating activities, there must be a balance. Spoiler alert: I haven’t found it yet, but everyday I know that I am getting closer 🙂
Today, God told me that I need more “quiet time”, time that I am not contemplating life, planning my life 10 years from now or doing any other mentally-draining activity.
We all have counterproductive habits that sometimes seem impossible to kick. However, whatever those weaknesses may be (mental/overthinking, physical/under exercising), you can be confident of two things:
- Jesus experienced the same struggle and was successful as a man (Hebrews 4:15)
- God is more than willing to supply wisdom and advice, when you ask (James 1:5)
Here’s the good news, you already have the victory and dominion over your bad habits! The process of changing them won’t be easy, but you can find comfort in knowing that you win in the end!
