1 Cor. 2:16 But we have the mind of Christ.
There are days that are harder than others for us all. I think the ones that upset me the most are when I have intrusive thoughts. They are unwanted thoughts. Some go from, you can't do anything right. To something that is just awful. It depends on how I am doing whether I can stop the thoughts or not. If I am doing really well I can recognize them. Then tell myself the truth.
These thoughts, I have noticed, come when I am fearful. I never knew I was fearful before I came in touch with who I am. Living out of denial.
Phil 4:8 tells us to think on whatever is true, honorable, right , pure, whatever is lovely, of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise to dwell on these things. I cannot do this apart from my relationship and dependence on God. When I am close to His heart I actually can begin to think what He thinks. Hurt when He hurts. Long for what He longs for.
