Beyond understanding

Sometimes your mind can be so painful it feels like it’s going to explode.  Sometimes your mind is so full of confusing thoughts and insoluble problems you wish you could take it out for a few hours, like dentures, so you can get some rest.

Life can be like that.  You’d have to be mad if it didn’t send you crazy at times.

Solutions to many of life’s problems are beyond our understanding.  But, thank God, there is also help that is beyond our understanding.  I was at the hospital bedside of a dear friend some time ago.  Nothing I could say or do would ease her pain.  So I just shut up and held her hand in silence.  Then I found the help that is beyond understanding.  Within a short while she was at peace and was made well.  Thank God!  I hope the next time you feel you’re losing your mind you too find this help…

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 4:6-7)
