"Never be afraid to sit a while and think." Lorraine Hansberry.
I'm a thinker. People have always told me that. I tend to reflect about stuff long and hard and usually pepper my thoughts with the whys, the whats, the hows.
Sometimes I can overthink things too much but in the past I did the opposite - I'd impulsively jump into situations without giving much thought and it usually ended in disaster.
Taking time to think through a situation gives me insight into it. I start to see the whole picture, not just one side. And seeing the whole, helps me know what to do and how.
The biggest thing though, when I take time to really reflect, especially if it's something that worries or scares me, I eventually start to feel hope.....hope that everything will work out.....hope that He's got a plan.....a purpose in everything. I don't have to jump or react. He's got everything under control.
Thinking through, piecing things together, hope eventually always falls into place.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
