Putting My Brain on the Shelf

Sometimes that's what I want to do... take my brain painlessly out of my head and put in on a shelf. And get a new one that knows everything I previously knew, minus all of the things that had been previously consuming my mind.

There are tons of different ways I could go with this, and things I could write. Where to begin?

I don't even know, maybe it would be best just to not.

There's so much to it, I don't know where to start. Sometimes I think of me with my mind so consumed and clouded- not with "bad" stuff, just "a lot" of stuff. And then I imagine God, just waiting for me to "stop talking" so He can have a word. We have all been in a conversation with someone where we finally just give up trying to talk, because we know it's not going to happen- the other person just won't be quiet. All the while, if they would allow you to speak by stopping themselves, you would be able to share the solution or wisdom that you have to offer.

Then there's the things that God allows to consume your thoughts, that He will not leave you alone about until you make your move.

Philippians 4: 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
