Like an old dirt road with deep ruts, our minds can steer us in a direction we are used to going…automatically without even really thinking about it. When trauma or stress or heartache happens, our minds so easily revert to learned patterns of thinking.
But there is help…there is a better way. We can think about what we’re thinking about…what we’re letting take up space in our minds and hold it captive to the truth. We can replace negative thoughts for positive…offensive for honorable and righteous…ugly for pure and lovely.
It’s not easy. Everything in us will fight against this new way of thinking but if you persevere, you will be blessed.
Here are a few scriptures to help
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”
