Stuck In My Head

Bob Prichard Via Bulletin Gold

A tune was stuck in my head. It was a jazzy clarinet
tune. I was racking my brain trying to figure out
what it was, and where it came from, when I
happened to see a Land Rover TV commercial
playing the tune. I had picked up the tune without
paying attention.

Without even trying, our minds scoop up what we
see, hear, smell, and feel. God has created us in such
a way that we can remember an event from twenty-
five years ago like it happened yesterday.

Knowing it is possible for us to absorb so many
things without even thinking about it, shouldn’t we
be extra cautious about where we go, what we do,
and what we expose our minds to? The more we fill
our minds with good things, the more good things
there will be to well up into our conscious or
unconscious minds. We need David’s attitude:
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, 0
God! how great is the sum of them!” (Psalm

The song was “Baby Elephant Walk,” written by
Henry Mancini for the 1962 movie Hatari. Listen to
it, and it will probably get stuck in your head, too!
Why not spend some time this week putting good
things from God in your head!
