I lived many decades of my life trying desperately to control other people and situations. In classic control freak fashion, I would justify all of my actions (and reactions) by saying things like, “I’m just trying to protect you,” and “I’m not angry, I’m passionate.” I was the type who couldn’t take criticism and blamed others for my misfortune.
And I’ll admit that while I am very happy I am no longer that person, I still get tempted to control sometimes. So I was relieved to discover that there is one area where I was still allowed to let my control freak flag fly.
In fact, this is one thing we should all be obsessive about controlling—your thoughts.
That’s right, I want you to apply all of your well-honed controlling muscles on taming your mind.
Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:23 reminds us that we are to renew our thoughts daily. That means we need to be in control of what we’re thinking because if aren’t, the same toxic thoughts will be controlling our life.
