A Poem for Thought

  Thinking of You


We don't always get a hint or clue
As in reading each other's thoughts
In wondering who is thinking of you

In these moments anxiety only grew
And can sometimes make us see plots
We don't always get a hint or clue

For we wonder if only I knew
This dilemma puts our stomach in knots 
In wondering who is thinking of you

Don't worry about who one is thinking
To this one's own thoughts one needs guarding
As to Jesus one's thoughts are shrinking

Then soon to Him one's being discarding
In the wonderment of not knowing
One's own thoughts to this regarding

Hope in Jesus one's thoughts growing
As we don't always get a hint or clue
To the same of the other in knowing
In wondering who is thinking of you

Thoughts: Sometimes we worry so much about if someone is thinking of us or not to the point that we forget to guard our own thoughts. Then soon, our thoughts are so concentrated on this that the thought of Jesus and our faith in Him diminishes; due, this supposed dilemma. When in us thinking about the other person, we should be hoping the other person is thinking about Jesus more than thinking about us. Since we can't read each other's mind, we don't get a hint or a clue-unless said person tells you-rather they are thinking of you. So, why worry about if they are when this can only cause anxiety. If one is wondering if someone is thinking of you, one should wonder more if that person is thinking about Jesus. We can even begin to think bad of the other person and develop within our own minds evil thoughts of that person, simply out of wonderment if  that person is thinking of us. "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts....". (Mark 7:21. NKJV). If one is wondering if a person you have interacted with is thinking of you, one should not let this control, nor over rule your thoughts and faith in Jesus Christ. Bottom line, we can't control what others think. Even thou, their are others out their that, to some degree, do like to play mind games in hope of control and or manipulating one's thoughts. That's why one needs to be thinking of the Lord in guarding one's own thoughts. What we can do is pray to the Lord that He helps us in staying focused on Him in wondering if someone is thinking of you.
