Ever see someone driving down the road for miles with their brake lights on?
Last night I was out and about and saw no less than three different cars doing it. One even passed me, brake lights glaring back at me the whole way.
That can’t be good for the car. Or their fuel economy.
Do you suppose people who do this know they have their foot on the brake? Do they realize they are making things harder on their car and wasting energy?
It made me wonder how many times I go racing through life, fighting against unnecessary friction because I have my foot on the brake pedal.
I know one of the ways I slow myself down is with the constant stream of counterproductive thoughts. I have a tendency to look for all the reasons why something won’t work instead of focusing on how it could work. Or what good might come from it if it did work.
That thinking isn’t helping me.
The Bible says I should chuck those thought patterns. Check this out
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
Everyone of us needs a mental enema from time to time to get rid of that stinking thinking that holds back from our full potential.
How are your thoughts holding you back?
