Does your imagination run away with you?

As your husband walks out the door to go on a business trip, do you imagine an airline crash or a terrorist hijacking? When your children go off to school, do you imagine a bully on the playground? For yourself, do you imagine diseases you never want to experience? For your elderly parents, do you envision ill health and frail later years?

Imagination, given to us by God our Creator, can be used for tremendous good. Often a project to help others is first a vision in our thoughts before it becomes a reality. When allowed to be used by God, the imagination has tremendous power for good. Instead of imagining the worst, why don’t we imagine the best? And while we are at it, why not pray for that best, too?

We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ . . . . II Corinthians 10:5

Heavenly Father, thank You that You have given us, as humans, an imagination. I commit mine into Your hands so that it can be used to Your glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
