Stinkin Thinkin

I never thought of myself as a “glass half empty” type of person. I have always tried to fix my mind on positive thinking; but at times I fail and my mind goes right into negative mode. Perfect example of not trusting God! Let me share my latest “God lesson”. A few days ago, I was at work when the phone rang. I let the answering machine take the call and it was my boss. She proceeded to leave a detailed message directed to my client and his family. She said, “I saw you called earlier and am just now returning your call. I apologize, but if this is about _ _ _ _, call me tomorrow and we will set a time for you to come in.” Of course, I immediately thought the worst. Am I in trouble? Are they not happy with my care? Oh my gosh! What did I do? The rest of my shift, I let it fester until by the end of my shift, those negative thoughts had taken completely over, ruined my otherwise pleasant night and had affected the mood of my client. When my client’s wife came home, I had to say something to her. I explained the message left and she reassured me it wasn’t anything for me to be concerned about. She noticed I was visibly upset so she reluctantly told me, “It was supposed to be a surprise, but you have been selected for “Employee of the Year”. Oh my gosh! Are you kidding me? Ok God. I get it. You teach me everyday to trust You more and to stop the “stinkin’ thinkin”. Have a blessed day!
