This is Godspeed! ... punchy, bite-sized "tinysodes" from Jesus Smart. This is episode #66. We have between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts run through our mind each day. When our thoughts start to blend with strong emotions, our brain is deeply impacted -- for the good or for the bad. Our physical brain actually changes according to how we think. New neural pathways are created. It's important that we take time to notice how we are thinking and feeling and take charge of our thought life. How we think affects everything. Paul wrote, "We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:5 NASB).
