The Mindreader

I was able to meet with a friend for coffee yesterday we were going over some past events and she was recounting how things looked from her point of view and what she thought I must have been thinking. It took me back to previous times with other people who have "watched" me and decided that I am thinking something or feeling something that I am not. We talked about it and worked it out and I appreciated that we could do that. But, I took note again to pay attention at how often I do the same thing. And, if I do, STOP. It's not okay.
Do I always have to be smiling and cheery? Isn't it okay to be quiet sometimes and not be pegged as "withdrawn"? Maybe I just don't have anything to say. Or, possibly I am just listening, or I'm tired? Is it okay to be alone sometimes, or do I always have to be with people?Does this make me depressed?
I have to be careful how I judge the actions of others. It is not my job to determine what is going on in their mind. It is my job to focus on Christ and how I can serve others!
In my time with Jesus this morning He sent me to Colossians 2. I love this verse "You received Christ Jesus, the Master now live him. You're deeply rooted in him. Youre well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith."
Ah, deeply rooted! Say That Again Jesus, I am deeply rooted IN YOU!
