Sometimes we can have so much going on in out minds that trying to keep all of out thoughts contained can cause us significant stress. If you have people you can talk to that is great, but sharing your thoughts with the Lord can be very simple and extremely beneficial. Being able to talk with the Lord is particularly nice when you are struggling with thoughts that you know are ridiculous but you just can’t seem to shake. Give these crazy thoughts to God. He will understand, and He won’t judge you.
If you don’t t know how to hear a response from the Lord yet, don’t worry. It will come, and, in the meantime, confiding in your Heavenly Father to release yourself from your mental burdens and to stay close to Him is perfectly fine! The Lord will appreciate any and all of your attempts to grow your relationship with Him.
