Thinking and Being Like God
Think. Think. Think. We all do it. You think about the past and feel depressed or thankful. You think about the future and feel anxious or excited. You think about a lot of things! It feels as if sometimes you can't "Shut if off." You wake up thinking a lot; at lunch time, thinking a lot; dinner, same thing.
Consider this passage: Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
You Have a Dominion Mindset
You think, sometimes a lot. Not every thought you have is difficult or stressful though. Consider your dog. You are different than him; his affect really doesn't change from morning to evening (as far as you can tell). My affect definitely changes from morning to evening, usually depending on what I am thinking about. You have a dominion mindset, being acted/behaved-out in all of God's creation. Maybe you work in construction, run a non-profit, parent, teach, and volunteer. In school? Still have this mindset! When you think, trying to figure out a solution to one thing or many things, you are using your God-given dominion mindset, something that your dog does not have.
