Switching thought patterns

@jamesdcarters @jamesdcarters This is something I’m dealing with myself, so please do not think it’s about a person. Sometimes, especially at a job, thoughts rise up in your brain. It’s only natural, to get upset at circumstances, it’s what someone does in that moment that can either bring them the blessing or the curse. The Bible says the be angry but sin not, that doesn’t say stay angry, it’s when someone stays angry, when they miss the opportunity to be a light. The way to do this is to pray, and praise the father for changing things even when they look the darkest. It’s not an easy task, but most of the time the blessing is right around the corner. I believe this is the true meaning of walking by faith.

Think about it this way, when we start complaining, any demon, sent to steal your blessing, has more ground because of the energy coming off of you. The people around you could also hear it, then the enemy knows where to press your buttons. There is a supernatural power in praise, and demons scatter, when they hear it. It all starts in the mind, don’t let the enemy know, and don’t let the anger grow. The Father knows, our thoughts and desires, and when we are focusing on the problems, we are focusing on the wrong energy. I think this is why Paul wrote about renewing of the mind, because it all starts with the mind. The Word also says we have the mind of Christ so if, someone gives in to their desires, or flesh, then the enemy comes back.

Stay focused on Jesus, and His character, and He will guide your path. StayIng focused on the problems and character of the Devil and he won’t even play fair. He is waiting like a lion to see who he can devour. Anytime, there is a problem, and you catch yourself complaining, stop renew the mind, and praise Jesus. He will comfort you, but He can’t when we are focused on the enemy. Focus on the solution, not the problem.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.

  1. Thanks for a great post and reminders to take every thought captive. The line you wrote that really first got my full attention was – “when we start complaining, any demon, sent to steal your blessing, has more ground” God bless you!

    1. It was all inspired by the Father, I’m doing my best to listen when He speaks especially when I’m upset cause I was, then I remembered Paul and Silas and I took authority over my mind. I do appreciate it. God bless you as well, and your whole day
