Take a step toward freedom from worry with this powerful resource that you can keep coming back to, day after day!
2 Corinthians 10:5 says, “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.”
We each have different struggles in our lives, but our minds can be our most treacherous battlegrounds.
We can worry in so many ways: moping, self-condemning, controlling, pushing our way through life, being prideful, comparing, judging, being angry, being greedy, being bitter, being insecure, being impatient, being afraid...
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus," (Philippians 4:6-7).
When I'm struggling with worry, I have a hard time just praying inside of my head. I want to take my thoughts captive and surrender them to Christ, but I need something tangible to attach to my prayers. A tangible way to get my anxious thoughts out and replace them with the truth.
How about you--would something tangible help you to get out of your head so you can lay your thoughts down?
Ever since God put it on my heart to create the Captive Cards, they've been an incredible resource to me, especially when I'm lying awake in the middle of the night. I hope they'll be helpful to you, too!
In each set, there are 21 cards. They are covered with unique, hand-drawn designs in soothing grays and yellows, and they are attached to a gold ring. You can hook them to your keys, hang them in your kitchen, place them by your bed, even take individual cards off and put them where you need them most.
Each card has a word or phrase on the front, and thought-provoking action steps and Bible verses** on the back. When we’re worried, we can go through the cards, one-by-one, working through what each one says. They help us to focus on the truth. They help to direct our prayers into action. They help us to TAKE our thoughts captive, REPLACE them with the truth, SURRENDER them to Christ…and RESOLVE to live differently: without worry;* with God’s peace.
"From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I," (Psalm 61:2).
Here's a free mini-Bible study that walks you through the process of "Take, Replace, Surrender, Resolve"...
