Nailing it to the Cross

Do you wake at 1:30 am and your thoughts have taken over?

You toss and turn but the thoughts won’t let you sleep?


Just me?

So many of my people are in my thoughts tonight

People that are hurting. People that are traveling a difficult road right now. People that are mad. And then there are people that are so happy and content. People that are living life to their absolute fullest.

So many people.

I had a conversation with two friends this week. It was deep and emotional. It was long and felt as if it was 20 minutes. There was coffee and cocoa, laughing and tears.

Those are the best aren’t they?

I love to have a take away……

This was it.

“When I have a thought that is consuming. A thought that continues to eat at my soul. I physically take my hand, pull the thought from my head and nail it to the cross.

Ya’ll!!! I can’t even.

I love it when someone says something that fills me to the top. Gives me encouragement and shows me ways to love and be loved.

It’s now 4:10am and I have to get up in 1 hour and 50 minutes for church. We have rehearsal and we are singing What a Beautiful Name. It’s definitely a favorite of mine.

Powerful lyrics. So powerful.

You have no rival, You have no equal

Now and forever, Our God reigns

Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory

Yours is the Name, above all names

My friends words resonate over and over.

I’m taking the thoughts of anger, frustration, the unknown and the fear and I’m nailing them to the cross.

Right now.

And later? Definitely a nap
