Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5); For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…(Prov 23:7)~~ Negative thoughts are parasites that live off the energy you give them!! They hinder you in your marriage, your family, your job, your LIFE!! They steal your joy and keep you from being who you want to be or even worse, who God says you ARE! Arguing with negative thoughts is an exercise in self-destruction. Entertaining them is like giving them a transfusion with your own blood. You become psychologically anemic as they suck the blood from your mental veins. They become stronger as You become weaker. Master your thoughts early or they will master you. Negative thoughts are your enemy and as the enemy, you should purposely seek them within your mind and make it your mission to defeat and evict them! Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things (Phil 4:8).
