Modes and manners of expressions stream through your thoughts. It is difficult sometimes choosing which horse of thoughts to ride. You grasp for a sense of words, there is a chorus of potential if you could just put it all together.
Its a good day, a lot of mind action is going on. You remember days when your mind seemed to be just blank and no matter what you did you couldn’t turn things on. On such days, for sure, you don’t feel like poring over the puzzle of things.
Sometimes you are your own worst supervisor. For instance, it doesn’t turn you on to have to stare down columns on three pages of things to do, (and partly because you don’t want to do those things), nor do you feel the zip to do them. This is often when your mind begins to roam. The problem, however, is sometimes it is also when you begin to think on forbidden things.
You think you should extinguish those thoughts, but they are in a concealed place of the mind and so you just peek in on them and mess with there possibilities. With a few roaming thoughts you just opened the switch blade of the surgeon of Satan. Don’t forget, it was his imps who planted the Tares into the human race, (Matthew 13:24-41KJV). The mind is no game room… Jesus said you can commit adultery in your heart, (heart is a word of emphasis often used in the Bible for the mind). Another old saying is: As a person thinks so is that person.
But not all mind roaming is negative. Mind roaming can also take you to a beautiful mind set and beautiful places of peace. Do your best to not think disconnectedly. Steer your roaming mind toward what is good.
In Philippians 4:8 of the Bible it says:
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever thing are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever thing are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely
whatsoever things are of good report;
If there be any virtue,
If there be any praise,
think on these things.
So then, a person must guide their mind even in the state of its roaming.
