Pure thoughts

You can't think two things at once.

It isn't possible to think about two things at the same time. You can't be thinking about trying drugs and how big God is at the same time. This is a good thing for Christians because when we are tempted with bad thoughts we can quickly replace that thought with the word of God! It doesn't matter what you are struggling with- it could be thinking about addiction, judgemental thoughts, a crush, or jealousy. Whatever it is you can toss that thought out the window and replace it with God's truth.

We should be having the mind of Christ, filled with pure thoughts and emotions. We can control our thoughts- no matter what Satan tells us.

Romans 15:5
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,

1 Corinthians 2:16
for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.

Putting on the mind of Christ, we are ready to face each challenge with confidence and truth.

Your sister in Christ,
