We can be having a wonderful morning,
Then something happens and our mind “spins” away,
So, we lose our serenity in a moment’s time,
The tranquility we enjoyed goes astray.
Someone says something…or an event happens,
Our “spinning” thoughts are off to the races,
We dwell on the injustices, unfairs….or how to help?
Our mind spins doing mental gyrations.
How long this all lasts, this mental spinning,
Could be days , minutes, or hours,
It’s amazing how when one button is pushed,
US.…our thoughts can immediately devour.
So, we go to GOD, who has all the POWER,
In order to keep our minds out of the race,
For He can relieve us and STOP the insanity,
From the mental gerbil …. “renting free space.”
We must STOP…call to GOD…ask for His aide,
Our sick thoughts…to help us release,
Focus on Him so our mind will stop “spinning,”
Then the craziness… it will just cease.
For with GOD we have the POWER to choose,
To STOP SPINNING and THINK healthy thoughts,
The PEACE we find…when we slow down our mind.
Is serenity that just can’t be bought.
