War Zone

The sound of gun fire is constant, it doesn’t stop. You try to keep your head down and take cover. Different guns start getting used and the sound carries… Suddenly a silence and then a whoosh as a rocket gets launched with a huge explosion erupting. People are getting knocked down, families divided, friends hurt and injured.

This is an excerpt from a war zone and I believe the biggest war zone is in our heads, the battle of our minds.

Our thoughts don’t stop coming at us, “Why do I always have to do it, can’t somebody else?” Just the one thought and already an issue could start. “She didn’t say hello, I wonder why, did I do something wrong?” and so these thoughts continue…


Renew your mind (Please read Romans 12)

Don’t give the devil a foothold, (Please read Ephesians 4) I imagine the devil as a burglar, I open the door, “not knowing”, he puts his foot in the way so I can’t close the door, it’s so easy for him to come in and trash the place, take what he wants and kill me. John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life , and have it to the full.”

Don’t open that door!

Control your thoughts EVERYDAY!!


and from our thoughts come our words and our actions.

A friend shared a picture of her aged mom who bumped her leg which caused a bruise BUT it didn’t heal, it became a huge open wound. If somebody bruises us, forgive and forgive and forgive again and again, same person, over and over. Stop thoughts, stop negative words.

Please read Colossians 3 and Ephesians 4.

Please read Romans 8:5-6 “…the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” and Romans 15:1-13 “…May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God…”

2 Corinthians 10:5 “…we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Please read Revelation 12:9-12; 17 “…Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring – those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.”

Be careful who you hang out with, Acts 14:2, “But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the other Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.”

Please read Philippians 4:2; 4-9 “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practise. And the God of peace will be with you.

God’s peace will come and rule. Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”
