Controlling Unwanted Thoughts.

The Bible contains several verses about controlling our thoughts and focusing on what's righteous. Here are three Scriptures, along with explanations for each:

1. **Philippians 4:8**

> "Finally, brothers and sisters, 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."

**Explanation**: In this passage, Paul provides believers with a standard for what they should focus their thoughts on. He encourages concentrating on things that are positive, righteous, and praiseworthy. When unwanted or negative thoughts arise, redirecting one's mind to these virtuous concepts can be a method of control.

2. **2 Corinthians 10:5**

> "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."

**Explanation**: focusingPaul speaks about the Spiritual Warfare Believers are engaged in. One of the key battlegrounds is the mind. Paul emphasizes the importance of taking every thought captive and aligning it with Christ's teachings. It underscores believers' proactive role in managing and controlling their thoughts to ensure they align with godly principles.

3. **Romans 12:2**

> "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you can test and approve God’s will—his good, pleasing, and perfect will."

**Explanation**: Paul reminds believers not to conform to worldly thinking patterns but to continually renew their minds. Renewing the mind is an ongoing process of immersing oneself in God's Word and truth. By doing so, one's perspective and thinking align more closely with God's will, making it easier to discern and resist unwanted thoughts.

Controlling unwanted thoughts often requires consistent Effort, Prayer, and Immersing oneself in Scripture and Godly teachings. With time and persistence, controlling and redirecting those thoughts becomes more manageable.
