ECHO, ECho, Echo, echo. There’s an echo in my head again—that echo from the past. It bounces around the wall in my mind and then ricochets off the wall of my heart.
MIND, heart. MIND, heart. MIND, heart.
She doesn’t like me.
I’m overlooked again, Lord. Why do people keep skipping over me?
Maybe I’m just not good enough.
Nothing I have to offer is of any value anymore.
It’s too difficult. I should quit.
Something in my mind reminds me to get my thoughts in line with Him. It is from the louder echo of my heart.
HEART. Mind. HEART. Mind. HEART. Mind.
“…stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.”
1 Corinthians 14:20
“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
Thank goodness for the power of His Word, which echoes upon the walls of my heart and mind. It has trumped the power of my flesh, and it has the victory over the thoughts from the devil, thanks be to Jesus.
Which echo looms around in your mind from the past?
You can snuff it out with the sword of His Spirit, which is the Word of God. So bathe in it. Listen to it. Speak it. Read it. Sing it. Dance to it. Draw it. Write it.
Learn to love it and live it.
Rely upon it.
Until His echoes are the only ones you hear.
I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.”
