Sometimes...no...everyday I have a [mostly losing] battle with my mind.
My mind is always coming up with all these negative thoughts in my head.
Alot of these thoughts make me want to feel miserable; especially about myself and my life.
Some thoughts can get really ugly.
100% of those thoughts are false and irrational!
If you could hear my thoughts you would say"No!, no, not true! Don't think that way..."
But yet those thoughts just creeeeeeep into my mind.
Yes, everyday I fight this battle with my mind. I don't want to be overcome by it.
One thing I know. I can't fight this battle on my own...
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
God's Word and praying seriously helps. It's not really a losing battle anymore...for now it's more of a tug-of-war. Sometimes I overcome...sometimes it's a fail...
Just because I read the Bible and pray today doesn't mean I'm going to be a positive thinker everyday. It's a daily battle therefore I need to put on my armour daily (bible+prayer).
My thoughts aren't suddenly positive and pure but there certainly is a difference between fighting the battle alone and fighting the battle with a God who promises that nothing is impossible with Him.
