Take captive your thoughts (2 Corinthians 10:5)

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV)

Take captive our that picture....really fail miserably at it tho.  I also am really beginning to understand the idea of a wedge.  I've seen them at work and understand the principle...but when I think (ha) about my thoughts...and trying to take them captive....or thinking on the things of isn't initially the big issues or big irritants that ge to's the problem that starts as a little annoyance....and is allowed to expand...wedge-like to distract and erode our focus and dedication to God...and his desires for our life.  I think right now of a person I I am struggling with to take captive my negative's hard.  And I really understand how changing those patterns have to be a concerted won't change without intention.

Lord help me take my thoughts harness them and guide them to how you would have me think and act to bring your love, grace and mercy into my life and the lives around me.  Amen.
