Brain Works.

Whenever we are faced with a challenge some of us think about the following things:

What is the probability of the situation working out?
How many different scenarios can arise from this problem?
What is the probable outcome for each of those scenarios?
Which are the best scenario courses of action?

It gets worse...

Of those best courses of action, which will be most likely to succeed?
If one or more of those choices has a desired, probable outcome, which will you chose?

Congratulations- you just took a step into the way my brain works. I hope I didn't confuse you too much along the way. Some people claim I think too much and the truth is I do. I tend to over analyze my situations and dissect them into the simplest forms of matter for processing. But it's not always a good thing (and if you know me, you would never have guessed I think like that because I am generally laid back and easy going). Seeing as we serve a God whose ways are above our ways and thoughts above our thoughts, why do we try so hard to understand?

God always tends to chose the course of action for me that I never would've chosen because the end result, after countless hours of thinking, are always inconclusive. These are the paths I can not see the light at the end of the tunnel in. This requires blind and selfless faith to jump right in and let God light up the path a little at a time along the way.

Honestly this is just what has been on my mind lately. If I can see a probable outcome and a simple solution, it is most likely not what God has for me. On the other hand lately, If the situation seems impossible and no probable outcome can be established, God says to go that way.

So that's what I do. And that's when God makes His plan crystal clear. He is not the author of confusion, but He wants to be the one to show us the clarity. So if we try to figure Gods ways out on our own, we get confused. Everything happens for a reason. God will show you what that reason is. Sometimes you just need to stop searching for it. Sometimes you need to stop questioning it. Let God be God.

  1. This is so true. We want to pull God down to our level so we can understand Him better. Thanks for the word, JoAnna.
