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 through a difficult season of waiting and wondering n this first of her new series,
“Driving Your Thoughts Instead of Letting Them Drive You.”
Her mind kept going to a recent event of deep disappointment that seemed to repeat itself any
time she dared to put herself out there in the world of singles. she tried reaching for
understanding that felt so unobtainable, it was as if its shadow was an airplane flying high,
coming down for a landing and then immediately changing its course. She just didn’t get it.
How is it that people can pose as someone or something and then, when it comes down to
talking, and/or meeting, they suddenly are gone? Why are there so many singles out there
doing this? What is it they have to gain? How can they just live their lives as if they are doing
nothing wrong? 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. And once again, she surrendered her season of singleness over to her First
Husband, the one who would never leave her, cheat on her or lie to her.
Oh, friend, have you ever wandered and wondered in your thoughts to a point where they
drove you to an unpleasant place? In other words, 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.”
