Bubble Thinking

bubble thinking“What in the world am I doing up?” It was 3:30 am and I didn’t have to be awake for at least another hour; and yet, here I was wide awake. I knew why I was up. I had way too many thoughts running around in my head.
My foot shook with each passing minute as my anxiety levels increased. My enemy was taunting me with all my failures from the day and week before, which was only causing me to fill with anxiety, which in turn made my foot shake. I couldn’t calm down; and then, it hit me. Use your tools! I made a little bubble out of each thought in my head and then filtered each one through God’s word. Sleep returned.
Psalm 119:41-42 states, “Let Your steadfast love come to me, O LORD, Your salvation according to Your promise; then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in Your word.” Salvation from anxiety is based upon the promises in God’s word. One promise states that I will be at peace when my mind is upon Jesus. I had to use the biblical tools to do just that – focus on Jesus, the truth.
As we make bubbles out of each thought and then filter them through the truths the Spirit has given us, a peaceful sleep returns. Make your own bubble thoughts and then use your tools to experience the peace of God that will give you rest beyond your wildest dreams (Phil. 4:7).
