Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
– 2 Cor. 10: 5-6
Our mind can wander. “Mindfulness is the practice of a thousand beginnings.” –Coleen Camenisch.
That is my favorite quote from my Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher. God is so good that he can quiet our minds and give us peace.
Sometimes this peace and quiet comes in the morning sunlight when you have gotten a good night’s sleep. The mind is quiet and ready for what God wants to tell you that day. If you listen, you will be able to take the bad thoughts captive and redirect them to something higher that God wants for you. Then by the end of the day you won’t be as emotionally exhausted.
