Filtered Thoughts By Brenda Drake

The Word of God, prayer, praise, and a heart that is willing to give thanks in every situation keep our thoughts and our words sweet.  When we begin to be discouraged and our attitude begins to stink so do our words and our thoughts.  God is so good He is always there to help us sing the sweet songs of praise again.

Filtered Thoughts

When the mind runs and races even when at rest.
It takes you into places that are not always best.
It takes practice, and it takes time,
Determination, and dedication to harness the run-away-mind.
To measure what you need to think;
Weight carefully what is sweet and what stinks.
The mind filtered by the Word will see,
There is a greater span of peace.
Do your thoughts cause you pain or stress?
Then filter them with God’s Word to be blessed.
Are you sinking into depression’s grasp?
Then quickly do as God’s Word asks.
Turn to the One that will lift you high,
Repent and your sin do not deny.
Filtered thoughts take the contamination away;
So only God’s Word is allowed to stay.
Pray in the name of Jesus the name above all names.
And God’s promised future claim.
With your mind on God, evil thoughts depart.
It is gift from Jesus who now dwells in your heart.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 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
