Today my man and I talked over dinner about our thought lives and holding them captive.
We spoke about thoughts that had bombarded us both over this new season and ways we can combat the whispers that are not truth that try to hold us back.
Scripture says to take captive any thought that exalts itself over Christ in our lives.
I’m not sure about you, but I have thoughts that exalt themselves over Christ all the time. In fact all day long. I have to take them captive.
To take a thought captive means to contain it, hold it down, wrestle it, make it go into submission.
Lately I have been more susceptible to crazy thoughts because I am in a vunerable and completely new season. A season where I don’t know much, a season where I have no title to hide behind, a season of isolation and lots of time alone. In this season I have started to see patterns developing in my thought life that needs to be taken hostage of.
I don’t want to wake up when my new little man is in primary school thinking, I spent all those years consumed with myself. I want to be able to look back and say I did my very best and I grew as a person, I was the best version of me I could be.
An emancipated mum, has to equal an emancipated child. They pick up on our cues, they mimick our insecurities, they develop our disappointments. All because they mirror our reactions and responses. Children learn our behaviors.
Behavior always stems from our thought lives. No behavior manifests unless it has been incubated in our mind first.
So, I’m doing my best to capture thoughts that are not honorable, true, pure, good and life giving. I am doing my best to let go of the season that has past and step into the new.
How about you?
Hows your thought life?
