Battlefield of the mind…

I am reading a good book by Joyce Meyer called The Battlefield of the Mind.  And as I am coming back from a lull in my nutrition and workouts, I realize that much of my battle occurs in my mind…

As I consider all my potential to reach my goals, I am aware of the words of the Knots prayer…

Dear God,
please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,
may nots, and
might nots that find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all, dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind
my heart and my life all of the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.
Amen.

I wonder where you hear or experience the Knots in your life…..

I wonder if you understand the battle field of the mind?

It is my hope that you and I will experience small and lasting victories each and every day!
