Day 4

Soul Detox

And today’s question? I am eager to hear your answers.

Why is it easier to think toxic thoughts than it is to focus our minds on the truth?

Our suggested reading is Philippians 4:1-13. Click HERE to read.

5 Let everyone see how reasonable and gentle you are. The Lord is near!

via Philippians 4 CJB – So, my brothers, whom I love and long – Bible Gateway.

Oh I want that! To be reasonable and gentle.  I know it will take replacing toxic thoughts with GOD’s WORD for that to happen and I know it is a process – just some progress everyday that’s what it takes.

Just for fun I reviewed the definition of reasonable. 

1. Capable of reasoning; rational: a reasonable person.
2. Governed by or being in accordance with reason or sound thinking
3. Being within the bounds of common sense
4. Not excessive or extreme; fair

via reasonable – definition of reasonable by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Number 2 is the one that does it for me. Governed by sound thinking!  That is what getting rid of toxic thoughts is about. Being governed by the SOUND thinking of the HOLY SPIRIT as He applies the SCRIPTURE to our minds. All HE needs is our cooperation!

13 I can do all things through him who gives me power.

via Philippians 4 CJB – So, my brothers, whom I love and long – Bible Gateway.

Gentle.

1. having a mild or kindly nature or character
4. easily controlled

via gentle – definition of gentle by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Kindly nature and character.  Yes! Easily controlled – by the HOLY SPIRIT! Oh yes! yes! That’s what we want!! Getting rid of those toxic thoughts; giving them NO HOME in our minds will make it so of us! 

Reasonable and Gentle! With GOD’s help! We can do this!
