This photo was taken a few months ago, when I took a journey to Wellington.
The train journey was around ten hours and in that time (with no WiFi or board games to play) there were plenty of opportunities for me to think.
Who else understands the power of our minds?
I believe the difference between breakthrough and remaining captive with many of the challenges we face, is battling our mind. Taking captive thoughts and facing those fears.
When our thinking changes, our actions change. And then the fortresses come down.
I know this personally. My mind has been my own worst enemy since I was young. I have battled more things than I care to remember but the one thing that I can assure you of, is this:
Our thoughts break chains
What I mean is, our thoughts have the power to make or break us in life, and our thoughts play a big part in our future.
For years I battled my mind. It was a full-scale war, and for a period of time, I had to choose daily whether I lived or died.
You see, the devil said I wasn’t worth it. Yet, Jesus’ blood tells me otherwise.
The enemy will always go after our mind because that is where God gave us the greatest gift of all…free will.
The choice to choose love.
To choose life.
And to even choose God.
The battle may not be over, but we can be assured that the war has already been won.
