Lord, establish my thoughts!

Proverbs 16:3 "Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established."
What a wonderful verse that is to me! I am a person whose thoughts are frequently scattered (just ask my wife who has lived with me for 15 years). Sometimes they come at me at a million miles per hour and I lose track of them. It tends to make me "absent minded" sometimes. I call it the "ping pong ball theory". Bits of information are like ping pong balls. My head is only big enough for so many ping pong balls. Sometimes one new thought may push another thought right out. My thoughts are scattered.
It is not so with the LORD! He will establish your thoughts if you commit your works to Him. I am going through a season where my thoughts are very heavy on me. There are many things on my mind that are pressing me and if the LORD was not helping me, I may crush under the weight it seems.
God will not let that happen. If I commit my works to Him, my thoughts will be established. After all, Isaiah 55:8-9 tell us "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

How amazing it is to see the LORD of Glory part the clouds and bring light and with it clarity to a clouded world. God is so good!
Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. Proverbs 16:3 Ohhh what that verse means to me now. God knows!
