team have spent the past week out in North Carolina on Jonathan and Melissa Helser’s farm. It’s been the most magical week full of dreaming, laughter, hard work, good food, and new friends.One of the many things about their lifestyle that impacted me, was their commitment to a healthy and clean lifestyle - both physically and spiritually. A real body, mind, and soul experience.
I felt the urge to be continually checking myself for impure thought patterns. Impurity of thought comes in many forms, whether that be with sexuality, arrogance, violence, hatred, jealousy, “victim mentality”, and so forth.
I just love how the Lord always has answer to any problem we have, and His Spirit is always with us, encouraging us, guiding us, leading us on in His glorious redemption plan.
With my heart set on purity, my mind was stirred to Philippians 4:8 - such a well-known scripture, but one that I find is “easily quoted” but seldom “lived out”.
Rather than condemn anyone, I just challenge you to take a moment and assess your situations. What are you thinking about? What is filling your mind right now? Is it healthy, is it honoring God? Take every thought captive, lay it before the cross, and ask for Holy Spirit’s magnificent presence to be your guide and help to restore your conscience.
