It happened and it's all right

Recently I blogged about my tendency to think about God rather than express myself to Him. One of the fears I had was that if I didn't think about a certain aspect of God I would miss out on an opportunity to meditate on it or even blog about it later. Well, as a church we were singing Revelation Song to God last Sunday when a thought about something or other entered my mind. I tried my best to refuse it and, after a little bit, it left. I was concerned about it not returning with sufficient enough clarity for me to think about it later or write about it some time this week. Sure enough that thought I had is gone.

It is kind of a strange feeling knowing I had something right there in the front of my mind and that I just went and got rid of it. I am not sure I have ever had this happen before. In the not-too-distant past I would have even bent down, gotten the program out, and written it down so that I would not lose it. I wasn't tempted to do that this time at all as the battle was manifest only in my heart and mind.

So a blog post about something that is no longer in my mind? Yes - I guess so.

It happened that way and it's more than all right. In fact, It's downright good.
