The battle begins in the mind.
Have you heard that before? Does it seem simplistic? Can we think ourselves into a better place?
It seems like, according to these scriptures, the battle not only begins in the mind, it ends in the mind. When we think about ways to indulge in sin, we will sin. When we think things that are true, lovely, pure and worthy of praise, we will be people who are true, lovely, pure and worthy of praise.
That seems pretty simple, but many times it feels quite difficult. Last week I struggled getting on top of my thoughts. I kept imagining the worst all the while slipping deeper into a pit. I reached out to friends for prayer and one of the women immediately challenged me to change my thinking.
Is there anything running through your mind that needs to change? Is there someone you can share it with because we are better together!
