GIRD UP THE LOINS OF YOUR MIND
This may sound like a very strange concept, but it is a concept from the Bible that has given me direction and understanding.
1 Peter 1:13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (NKJV)
Our loins are the seats of our generative power. The area of our bodies that houses our ability to reproduce and be fruitful. It is a tender, sensitive area that needs to be protected. Trauma to this area can be serious and painful. In the same way our minds are sensitive instruments that must be protected and nurtured. We cannot just allow our minds to run amok.
As a child I used to battle with my thoughts. At night I would lie down to sleep and my mind would come alive. I would think three completely different thoughts in one split second. It became distressful and lead to insomnia.
Our minds are a vital part of our make-up. By taking control of this area of our lives it can bring balance and ultimately success.
