Bridges & Branches of the Mind

"I know everything about you, far more than you know of yourself." (167)
The complexities of the human mind, all the networks of thought patterns and behaviors, are far beyond our ability to explain or to understand. Hidden, somewhere in the neuro-bridges and branches of the brain, lies the sick and seductive tendencies of the soul. Patterns that taunt us, haunt us, until we feel helplessly overcome. Yet there's SOMEONE who knows and totally understands us!
Even more AMAZING... we often continue to resist honest confess to the One who honestly knows and loves us anyway! Perhaps, our great flaw is the tangled thought patterns of pride woven in the mind where we blindly hide, becoming trapped and imprisoned in our own "offensive, hurtful" ways! (Psalm 139:24)
May our own bridges and branches not sabotage our own good choices. Confession IS good for the soul...and for the mind! It brings sanity and sanctuary...to our hearts, our homes, our health and our heritage! Hallelujah...
Bringing every network of thought into the Light of His Presence...dmc


  1. "Anything you bring to me I transform and cleanse from darkness." (167)I can either dwell in the darkness or give it to Jesus and let Him transform my darkness to light! He has done this for me many times!

    "Imagine the divine restraint this requires, for I have all Power in heaven and on earth."(167)This also struck a chord. Being a parent, you have to watch your children go through difficult things. If you try to keep them from having these struggles they will never mature. Hardest thing I've ever had to do. Thankful I have God's strength and promises to rely on!

  2. What a powerful parallel, Melissa! Thanks for sharing from the parent perspective.
