Being lightheaded is no joke. You lose your sense of orientation and balance. Things start to look blurry. But in prayer the other day, the Lord gave me a thought.
He shared the term, “lightheaded” with me and gave me this Scripture, “take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:29-30). And then He said to me, “the lightheadedness I give comes from you trusting me with your mind, your thoughts and your mentality.”
Let’s be honest. Our thoughts are not always light. They can be very heavy, dark, depressing, and full of anxiety. And because we are almost surrounded by darkness and fear, there is the temptation to be led by them. These thoughts weigh our minds down. Scripture says in Proverbs 12:25, “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good (encouraging) word makes it glad.” Our heart gives value to the thoughts we receive in our minds, whether positive or negative.
So if anxiety weighs down the heart and encouragement lift it, let’s seek encouragement through the Word of God. Let’s surround ourselves with hope and turn away from things that cause us to be heavy in our heads. Selah.
