Pure Thoughts

Hi Everyone,

Right now I am at my friend Kember's house to spend Thanksgiving together. We are going shopping today for things and then eating lunch at her parent's place.

I found it interesting that on my bus ride up no "inappropriate language" is allowed. Actually this is a good thing--I am thankful for the rule.

But the wierd part was that putting in a quite vulgar movie was totally acceptable---and there weren't even headphones so we all had to hear the audio.

I don't watch T.V. really at this point in my life and am selective on the movies I watch, so just over-hearing it all caused a battle with the impure thoughts.

It was NOT good.

We always talk about our men having issues with their thought-life, but really if we are all honest, we all have issues male or female to some extent. Some of my friends and I have discussed this topic lately. Maybe the nature of the struggle varies some according to our age, spiritual maturity in dealing with it, or the points and situations in life that we are at.

So I came back to one of my favorite verses as I prayed, "May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14

it's true. I believe both men & women struggle with sin in their thought life...just in different ways! Thanks for your thanksgiving thoughts, Crystal. I was encouraged.
