Bible Study Blog: A Junkie Mind Part II

A lot of current events has occurred since posting “A Junkie Mind,” Part One. There is a lot of junk presented to us daily through our friends, family, and the media. Some people don’t know how to get rid of the waste. Think about cleaning out your closet. Things you cannot use or wear you get rid of it.

When you are shopping, you don’t buy something that you cannot use. If you are the type of person who chooses to purchase something useless to your lifestyle or home, this means you are probably a hoarder, or a shopaholic. 

Do you hoarder junk in your mind? The latest junk up for grabs is unholy music and unhealthy television shows. Depending on the garbage you are looking for politics is definitely on most people shopping list. So hurry before the end of the sale.

Don’t hide or make excuses for your thought process, and do not try to rationalize it. When your mind is full of junk, you are subject to making bad decisions. You will continue to displease God and weaken your relationship with Him. 

Social media is a great shopping center when you are purchasing items for your junkie mind. You can buy hatred, jealousy, lies, mind control, and also, other items. Toxic relationships can be bought easily; it holds no value. Unholy music is toxic to the mind because of the lyrics, and it controls your actions when dealing with specific situations. When people allow unholy music to control their thoughts, this can turn out to be bad. 

Unhealthy television shows cater to the flesh desires or imagination. When some people allow their minds to bombarded with junk, sometimes this can lead to psychopathic behavior. America is experiencing this type of behavior now with politics. Do not let your mind become a dumpster for the world’s trash! 

Do not overload your mind with the world’s garbage and expect for the holy spirit to dwell there. Whenever you feel you are overwhelmed with other peoples issues or the worlds junk ask peace to be still (Mark 4:39). 

Proverbs 4:23 says, ” More than anything you guard and protect your mind for life flows from it.” A junkie mind can produce evil. God’s Word made it clear just how important guarding your mind is. It can determine your future in life and with Him. Are you guarding your mind?

Scriptures: Luke 6:45; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Philippians 4:6-7; 2 Corinthians 10:5
