Are you a person who thinks a lot?
I’m all for taking time to think things through before reacting in fact the bible encourages that in Proverbs 15:28 but what if the thoughts we are entertaining were hurting us?
There is a battlefield going on in our minds that nobody knows about. Nobody hears it and if left unchecked can damage our life.
It’s like feeding on junk food and expecting to have the body and stamina of an elite athlete. Our Christian walk is a continuous journey in renewing our minds so that our thoughts will be more in line with God’s thoughts.
Philippians 4:8 encourages us to fix our thoughts on what is true, honourable, and good for our soul.
When we get caught up in thoughts of self-criticism and self-deprecation, we are not giving ourselves the opportunity to focus on the healthy life-giving thoughts that God wants us to have. Godly thoughts empower us, bring us peace and move us forward.
