We should discipline our thoughts to be pure because how we act is determined by what we think.
A single negative thought can bring undone all the good work we have done up till now. Recovery is a process of retraining the brain.
Philippians 4:8 tells us to “always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure, lovely and worthy of respect.”
Retraining the brain comes from reading and understanding God’s Word and putting it into practice in our daily living.

Prayer: God today let me listen to You and fill my thoughts with Your prompting
