Can We Talk – Homework Week #3, Day #5

Breaking the Cycle. This is the lesson I need! Thank you, Jesus!!! 2 Kings 18:3-7 not only helped me to prayerfully identify two very specific idols in my life, it led me to pray that the Lord would teach me to cling to Him in the good times. It’s easy to hold onto God in the hard times, when you’re suffering and in pain and need Him desperately. But when the suffering has ended, we tend to loosen our grip on Him. Now that chemotherapy is over, I don’t want to let up even a little bit on the grip I have on Him.

I learned that, to cut down these idols in my life, I must “take each thought captive”. As thoughts pop into my head regarding these subjects, I must IMMEDIATELY focus on Christ and push the thought out of my head.

What a powerful time of study and prayer. I will definitely study more on this topic.
