Read this from a devotional book:
You can take those thoughts captive. You can defy the culprit. Quote a verse if you have to: “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse” (Rom.12:14 NIV).
“You are not a victim of your thoughts. You have a vote. You have a voice.”
Sometimes it is hard to discern if our voice still counts when it can easily be drowned into the loud voices around us. It is hard to make a point when people won’t listen. Yet other times, it is already a blessing if there are people who hear us and stays to listen to what we have to say. Then, there would be times that we would encounter unpleasant things, that we can grapple with our thoughts but not be strangled by it. In the end, we’d find that we still have a voice in the midst of the chaos, and still minding our words and what is true inside.
