To be scattered in thoughts and in way is often considered a pointless state of being. Unfocused, undisciplined, all over the map in one’s mind is not something to particularly strive for but at times it is a reality. Right now it is mine.
Scattered thoughts, dreams, prayers not for any one reason or the other, it’s just where I am, it’s who I am.
So what does this scattered place say of me? What does it mean? Does it render me inadequate, am I now considered pointless? If my mind is everywhere can God still reach me ? Can He still speak to my heart, guide my spirit, use me for a greater purpose?
I suppose it depends on which voice I choose to believe. The voice that roars self-condemning judgement or the Voice of God that lovingly whispers, I am here. I am with you. In the midst of your scattered map I will lead you with purpose right back to My loving arms.
I think I’ll choose the latter.
“Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
– Romans 8:39
