Today I felt frozen in time.
I was unable to sift through my past grime
As I sit here and reflect
I realize there are shattered pieces of it that wont connect
The hugest factor in this crime
seems to be the wasted time
Time that could be spent kneeling
On my knees claiming my healing
The poem above symbolizes my day . I’m going to be honest with you , I did pray for God to cleanse me of the unwanted memories. He did not forsake me . I chose my thoughts today. I chose to be stuck in time. Each day I have the ability to
choose my thoughts. I chose to focus on negative thoughts instead of positive thoughts. Our minds are battle fields. 2 Corinthians chapter 10 verses 4 and 5 remind us of this :
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 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. As a part of my de-cluttering project I choose to work on taking my thoughts captive. I wont always succeed in this endeavour. I cannot rely on myself to maintain a positive thought pattern . I must rely on Jesus . The items in my list below are steps of action I will implement to change my thought patterns:
Daily renewal of my mind through reading the bible, praying and communing with Jesus
Daily writing in a gratitude journal
Focusing on positive thoughts and pushing out negative thoughts
Listen to praise music throughout the day and evening
Focusing on the fact that the battle has already been won!
