Oh not you!
This is what I've decided to work on during Advent.
God kind of alerted me to this at Adoration last night. I went in and knelt down and started rambling.
Then I got distracted. Lost my train of thought. I couldn't focus. My mind was everywhere. And I sensed God telling me to slow down and bask in His presence. I needed to put a sock in the "mouth" of my mind, which was apparently running in overdrive.
And I'm so glad He let me know. Because I was able to stop. And let go. And truly bask in His presence. I took all of my sin, and all of my worry, and frustration, anxiety, sadness, you name it....and I gave it to Him.
And I felt light.
I thought I might fall over in the pew....I literally felt that weightless.
It was supernatural.
Until I started thinking thoughts like, "what if I really do fall out of my pew and all these people see me?" And then that "light" feeling started to slip away.
Okay Lord. You know best. I trust in You.
I had over an hour of glorious adoration time.
And my new reminder when my mind starts to think about "too much" at once, is to put a sock in it.
Here's my little mascot to cheer me on:
Lord, help me to slow down, put a sock in it, and listen to what you would have me hear this Advent.
