Nothing cohesive about what's been going on between my ears. Hence the title of this post. But I do enjoy the fact that God made our brains capable of both concentrating and also firing a hundred thoughts a minute in all directions.
Here are some of my mental meanderings just today.
1. I started the day reading I Peter 1: 17-19 (I think it was). I've been trying to journal this chapter in an expository way, meditating on just one or two or three verses at a time. Today I was dwelling on the part that says that for your sakes He was made manifest. To think again that He condescended to become human, and wasn't allowed to die a natural death, but was born to die a brutal death, but most importantly to be raised from the dead so that my faith and hope would be in God. I asked for Him to help me think of His suffering more than I do about my own and to remember his resurrection every time I remember His death. His glory didn't stop at the cross.
2. Figured out a mnemonic device yesterday to help me remember something. UTAP is the order in which 4 countries in the Middle East run north to south: Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan. No, it's not eternally significant, but it's helpful in the here in now, in case I ever end up in the Cash Cab or something. I shared this mnemonic device and it helped them nail their tests! I am so proud of how many of them knew the whole map of that area!
3. What cure is there for a bruised kneecap? I think that's what it is. It hurts to bend, but is fine extended. Ice and ibuprofen are my am/pm friends.
4. I am so ready for heaven.
