Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. (Romans 8:5)

Your thoughts have a great impact on you. Your thoughts are what influence  your words and actions. When your mind is not in a good place you may hurt others in what you say and do. You can’t allow your mind to get burdened by the negative experiences in life (anxiety, depress, fear). If you notice this happening to you stop! Don’t allow your mind to become a playground for Satan. Change your thoughts to the word of God; I will think on those things that are lovely, pure and of good report. Take dominion over your mind! Focus on ways you can show mercy to others and respond with a gentle tone.

Focus on things that please the Spirit. Amen!
