Can you imagine how pure before the Lord our actions would be if we really believed our thoughts matter? If we weren't conniving to work things out to our benefit or tying to force the outcome we desired?
I've talked before about worry and what a sin that I believe it is against the Lord. I woke up last night worrying about a couple of things, nothing earth shattering, and I was awake enough to remind myself - the Lord already knows the outcome! So I prayed for the items of worry and laid them at His feet - thankful for a Savior who cares about every detail of my life and who weaves even disappointments together for good.
In His power I will try anew today to take my thoughts captive and offer them up to Him asking for forgiveness even for my thoughts.
This could be a very busy day!
