The Vultures in My Mind – Natalie Weaver Busch

freestocks-org-190062

Every Monday I share a devotion, article, or video from one of my favorite writers, speakers, or ministers. Today’s post is from Natalie Weaver Busch’s blog – “Messy Mom: Making The Best Out Of What Looks Like A Mess.” Natalie writes about facing and examining our painful thoughts rather than avoiding them.

“I don’t like to feel pain and discomfort, not emotional or otherwise. So when I feel anxious thoughts rise up I try to change the subject in my mind and just think happy thoughts. Yet, sometimes the thoughts are circling around in my head like vultures. That’s when I really want to just medicate with some kind of distraction like Facebook or sleep. However, in order to get through it, I have to go through it.”
