Opposing emotions, thoughts, and feelings can carry us forward or hold us back.
Even in those times when we pay little to no attention to God, He still does us! In those times we ignore or discount; doubt or mistrust — He continually keeps us in His thoughts!
"How precious are your thoughts about me, O God! They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand!" — Psalm 139:17-18 (NLT)
We can let our minds take us to giving little thought to the One who always thinks of us when we feel distracted and irritated. We can be prone to letting our feelings on any given day dictate how we feel about others. It's a fault we all have... one that sometimes we don't care that it exists and then on the flip side of that may give too much attention too.
In any given season on any given day, we can be prone to opposing emotions, thoughts, and feelings... ones that carry us forward or ones that hold us back. It's a struggle to endure and to find a balance.
Perhaps it is in the enduring... the learning to find balance where our focus is adjusted, taken off ourselves - placed in and on its proper place, that we soon discover the true meaning of the precious thoughts of our Heavenly Father. When we understand that, we can better understand how to give back what we've been given!
