I Had Nothing To Say

I normally do a Morning Thoughts every weekday but a couple of times last week I really had nothing to say.

Is that scriptural?

Shouldn’t I always be able to talk about something that God has done for me?

Yes and no!

I can always talk about what God is doing in my life but should I!

The Bible tells us that even Jesus kept silent (Matt 26:63) at times.

Perhaps it is more that my mind was filled with so many other things like work, chores at home, Bible study for church, learning new songs for Praise & Worship, and doing Morning Thoughts that I just didn’t have any extra room to really put into the latter.

Isaiah knew what God was about to do and said, “My mind reels; my heart races. The sleep I once enjoyed at night is now a faint memory. I lie awake, trembling.” Isa 21:4 NLT

Maybe my thoughts weren’t on God at all.

Jesus said, “Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be.” Matt 6:21 NLT

It’s possible I thought more about work and chores than anything else.

Or I could have just been mentally, physically, and spritually tired.

I’ll have to take the words of Paul more to heart; There must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. Eph 4:23 NLT

Let heaven fill your thoughts . Do not think only about things down here on earth. Col 3:2 NLT

How great it is to be reminded of what I should be looking at and thinking of.

Now maybe my thoughts will renew upon the Lord and I will be able to think more clearly about the lessons He teaches.
