Thoughts that are acted upon.
Good or bad.
"The mind is a terrible thing to waste, renew your mind." Bellows a well know music group in the early 90's.
Everyone has a mind.
We win or lose depending on what we choose to embrace.
Our minds reflects who we are. One of the best selling books ever written says
"As a man thinks so is he"
What's going through your mind right now? What have you allowed to settle as an obsessive thought pattern?
What is nestling on your mind and has the potential to become a stronghold?
Do you know that you can stop anything from becoming an obsessive thought? If you are battling with a troubling, compulsive stream of thoughts like l did years ago, be rest assured you can reprogram your mind to stop and think good thoughts instead.
How l Retrained my Mind!
How l came to the fullness of the obsessive thoughts eludes me. All l can remember is that l came to a point
where l was so scared of knives. You might wonder what I mean by that. Yes Christian sister Abbiih had a phobia for knives!!! I thought it could suddenly cling to the palm of my hands and then l would die from a stab wound. Funny enough I never had a nasty experience nor can l remember how the phobia started. But hey presto!! l just couldn't shake the thoughts off. Ignorantly the feelings that accompanied such fear was terrifying, I was always anxious and worried l could hurt myself.
The thoughts were with me daily and my mind was in torment. As a believer in Christ l had read so many
books about the mind but found my deliverance when l came across Kenneth Hagin's book 'Right and Wrong Thinking'.
The book in addition to constant time spent with God set me free from the phobia that denied me time in the kitchen chopping vegetables and so much more in my life. Now I am free to cook and use a knife as a culinary tool with no fear at all.
Do you have obsessive thoughts you are dealing with? Are you finding it hard to let go and let God? If I could get free from my phobia, I believe you can too.
Send me your comments, I will love to read from you.
Yours in Christ
