The words of the verse pulled her mind out of the pit of depression it was headed for. Funny, she thought, how the mind can pick up speed towards things not praiseworthy, or of good report, but it sure is slow to head the other direction towards hope-filled possibilities.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. Have you ever wondered how to train your brain to not think the things it does, or how to pull it out of the pit it can drag you into? Kim-Evinda shares how she is learning to be the driver of her thoughts thru her recent season in this first of her new series, “Driving Your Thoughts Instead of Letting Them Drive You.”
Her mind kept going to the pain of the recent past, reaching for understanding that felt so unobtainable, it was as if it was an airplane flying high, coming down as if to land and then flying off again. She didn’t get it.
How is it that people can cause so much pain to others, and continue living their lives as if they are doing nothing wrong? How can they go on as if I didn’t exist? Her heart ached for these answers.
Finally, Kim-Evinda, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Her thoughts, questions came to a screeching halt. She wanted to argue with God, but she couldn’t; instead, He gave her a way to take control of these detours her heart insisted on venturing off onto.
Oh, friend, have you ever wondered these things? Do your thoughts drive you crazy or to a beautiful place? Join me next week in this series for part 2; in the meantime, “If anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.”
