Battle in your mind

Ever heard of the saying, an idle mind is the devils workshop? Well that saying is so very true. I find that if I keep my mind on Godly things, then the devil has no room to put negative thoughts in my mind. I realize that I'm in a spiritual war with him and his demons, and my mind is the battlefield! Everyday, I must be like a guard and stand watch over my thoughts, so that that they will not be bombarded with any sinful thoughts.

As a mom, I'm always busy, but my mind will try to wander during the repetition of homemaking, chores, laundry etc. During these times, I tend to hum hymns, or pray to keep a heaven bound mind. I pray that we all fight the negative thoughts the enemy tries to deter us with about our children, husband, or household chores. Its the oldest trick in the bible he used to get Eve to sin. We are to learn from her mistake and be mindful that hes always looking for a way to get us to fall away from our Godly role in the home. I hide His word in my heart, because I know my thoughts will become actions over time.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
