"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
2 Corinthians 10:5
With this extremely busy season at work, it is so easy to let deceptive thoughts and ideas take over my mind. It's easy when things are stressful to become bitter or angry more quickly. My job is high stress right now and I've got to make sure I don't let my thoughts (the things others don't see) get in the way.
What if my thoughts, my actions, my notions are holding back from what God can and wants to do through this youth ministry I serve in? Not that our God isn't bigger than my measly thoughts, but He desires our hearts to desire Him. How can I desire Him when my thoughts are full of selfishness? I'm trying to take my thoughts captive, and turn them on Christ when they begin to turn towards me. It's tough, but I know it's what I'm called to do.
We're experiencing all kinds of rough patches along the way to our Freedom Weekend next week, but I can't let that discourage me. At least in my own experiences, the more trouble you face from the enemy...The bigger God wants to move...
How exciting is that?!
I know I want to be a part of something bigger than me :)
How is YOUR week going, friends?
What can you do to better your own thought life?
