Nasty day - Trashy thoughts

Whoa. One of those days again.

You feel like the legion is inside of you. Every five minutes, you are declaring "and bringing captive every thought in obedience to Christ." And minutes later, again, you catch yourself thinking those same trashy thoughts.

Like, what is going on here, Lord? Why can't I get a grip on this, and feel free today?

Because Satan is a thief, coming to steal my joy today. And because Father God needs to know where my heart is.

I'm learning to not internalize all that happens to me. Pastor got a good word for me last October about that.

I'm learning to ask God for forgiveness, and ask for help. "Lord, I'm sorry. Help me."

That's the best prayer. Especially for days like today.

For the Nasty, Trashy Thought days.

Just wanted you to know you're not alone - I fight a similar battle with depressive/anxious thoughts.

Thank you for your words of encouragement. We think as we are going through things, that we are alone - no one else goes through this! But we aren't alone because dear Holy Spirit is always here, but knowing our sisters and brothers in Christ are here helps! Blessings to you and yours!
