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. (NLT) ( Romans 8:5 )

Our thoughts have a great impact on us. Our thoughts are what impact our words and actions, so guard your thoughts at all times. When your mind is not in a good place you can be hurtful in what you say and how you react to others. Dont’t let your mind get burdened by anxiety, despair, and fear. If you notice that ideas, thoughts, and images are constant in your mind, stop them by changing the direction of your thoughts with the word of God. Don’t allow your mind to be dominated! Allow God to fight your stronghold! Focus on ways you can show mercy to others or what you can say to respond with a gentle tone. Focus on things that please the Spirit.
