~2 Corinthians 10:5~
“casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing ever thought into captivity to the obedience of God.”
Do I have discipline in my thought life? Do I take every thought and remember that God can hear all of them? What’s in our hearts goes to our head and whatever is in our head has a tendency to come out of our mouth. I have to, probably about every ten seconds check what I am thinking. I have to ask myself that if Christ was right there and I said those thoughts out loud would they be glorifying to Him. Sometimes yes, and a lot of the time no. My thought life can be very disturbing, the things I think toward others, the things I think about myself, and the things I imagine. They are not glorifying to Him, and being here has taught me to take every thought captive, not just the ones that I want to but EVERY thought. Taking those thought, giving them to Christ, and asking Him to never let them come up again. To hold them in a cage and keep them there. My thought life is huge lesson in discipline for me. Only through Him am I able to think pure and glorifying thoughts towards others and myself.
