“…YES…I’ve held hands with satan… on more than one occasion…”

IDLE THOUGHTS… is on top of my most “dreaded fear” list. There are some who call it …day-dreaming. Romans 2:28 – “A depraved mind, to do things which are not proper.”

Day-dreaming, is at times, my best friend…because I’ve come up with some of my best ideas…while day-dreaming. At other times… it’s my worst enemy, because an idle mind is the “devils workshop.” And, YES…I’ve held hands with satan… on more than one occasion. Forgive me dear Jesus.

Fortunately… we don’t have to depend on day-to-day…day-dreaming. We can think…for ourselves… and by God’s Grace…we shall; which makes us more powerful than satan. We humans are… actually, very powerful… because we have free-will….and can, and should use it to…deny satan. We MUST deny satan.

Each of us have the power to destroy, or to give life…through our ability to love and to be compassionate.  Romans 12:2 – “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” As Leaders, we can help others fulfill their dreams; to taste success; teach them how to use their gifts… and then…teach them how to share their gifts… with others.

Frankly, I enjoy the “art of day-dreaming,” but RECOGNIZE that I MUST be “on my guard,” so as NOT to give satan a foothold. Ephesians 4:26-27 – “Be angry, yet do not sin.” Do not let the sun set upon your anger, and do not give the devil a foothold.
