Me, Myself, and Lies

I am so excited to be starting this study! I got a little bit of a head start and it is really quite amazing, I really love the idea of the thought closet that Jennifer Rothschild introduces. I have had filthy rags in my thought closet and I want to have beautiful dresses fit for who I really am, a princess, the daughter of THE KING.

What has impacted me the most is the idea that God thinks about us. While I was doing the study, I stumbled (not accidentally I am sure) across the verse Psalm 139:17. "How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered." The Bible states in many places, not only that God thinks about us, but that His thoughts about us cannot be numbered!! Can you even fathom that? That our God thinks precious and wonderful thoughts about us. All day long.

Have you gone an entire day where all your thoughts were consumed with God? I think that it is safe to say that I haven't, ever. But God does it all day every day. That is the amazing thing about God being timeless, omnipotent, and omni present. He can be with each of us, all day every day. His thoughts are consumed of us.

Now, immediately my first thoughts pondering this revelation are, naturally (since that is what I carry in my thought closet) guilt, failure, etc. But just as immediately, the Holy Spirit calmed that --and showed me that the verse was not so I would feel guilty, but so that I would see the amazing personality of God. He cares about me. He thinks about me-- and not because I keep screwing up and he is disappointed, but He thinks good and precious thoughts of me.

I have really been aware this week of thinking thoughts about God. There are days where I know I didn't give a thought all day to God. There are days when I would lay in bed and realize I didn't pray all day. I just can't believe that I could ever get to that point in my life. I hope to never go back to that place.

This study seems to be pretty involved, but it really is speaking volumes to me. I am very excited to be starting this new study, and I am even more excited to clean out my thought closet!
