Imprisoned Thoughts

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5

Before that thought becomes an action
Before that thought settles as a mindset
Hold it captive…

Close every door and make it a prisoner. Lock it up, and subject it to critical scrutiny and gruelling questions. 

Agenda: Find out it’s motive, aim and agenda. What will it achieve?

Pass it through the fire of God’s word. Is it true, just, worthy and of good report?

Test it on yourself. Ask yourself- what if the tables were turned? If someone else said that or thought that about me, how would I feel?

Investigate: find out its true source and please ask it “WHO SENT YOU??!!”

Verify your findings and be objective with the results you receive. 

Evaluate the aftermath and consequences of letting it out. Will it threaten, steal, kill and destroy or will it bring life, health and healing. 

Then take the appropriate godly action. Make it obey Christ. We are always in charge of our thoughts.

The Maze of Thoughts

Sometimes I readily find the right words to use,
Inspirations flow like the gushing waters of Niagara Falls,
Metaphors connect coherently and succinctly,
At such times, the speed of my writing becomes faster than sprinting,
Like a hermit, I withdraw into the cores of my mind,
To produce through the maze of thoughts, readable words for my audience,
I chuckle as I savour the rush of endorphins the moment brings.

Other times, my mind goes numb and frozen like ice packs,
Inspiration for a single line eludes and abandons me like a bride jilted,
I struggle as I drown in the cacophony of nonsensical ken,
At such times, I have discovered;
That the thoughts and words I wrote down earlier becomes my saviour,
I run to them with an open mind embracing their succour,
They fill my mind with creative imagination and originality,
Relieved, I begin to weave many a word for my waiting readers.
