I don’t want to tell you how often mine heads straight to dirty thoughts—not porno, but bitter memories or worries or self-pity. This is especially true when I’m going through a difficulty.
Last year, I learned that we speak at a rate of 120 words a minute, but we think Negative Thoughts at 1300 words a minute!
That means our thoughts can bury us in a pit of self-despair 10 times faster than spoken words.
No wonder Scripture says:
“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.
