Blocking negative thoughts (like an offensive lineman)

All thoughts are not created equal. Some thoughts need to be blocked from your brain. If you won’t block harmful thoughts from your mind, they will press in and hurt you. Unblocked, tormenting thoughts will rush your brain and sack your spirit with discouragement.

Football without blocking, turns into chaos. Life without blocking negative thoughts, does too.

One good block can win a football game. One good block that knocks out a tormenting thought, will change your life. Don’t let the devil put a mental block on you. Block him instead!

Wimpy blockers get run over! Block your tormenting thoughts with toughness and passion! Refuse to let a tormenting thought shed your block and get into your mental backfield.

Football teams that aren’t good at blocking, struggle. This also applies to people who aren’t willing to block harmful thoughts. Many people don’t realize that by failing to block mean-spirited and tormenting thoughts, they are blocking their own happiness.

If you aren’t blocking negative and destructive thoughts, they’re blocking you from peace and contentment. Learn to block! Block worry, block fear, block negativity, block hatred, and anything else that tries to torment your mind.

Block unkindness! Keep it out of your heart. Refuse to send it to others. Tormenting thoughts frequently try to enter my mind, but I’ve learned how to block them and keep them out of the backfield.

Be mentally tough! Hold your blocks! Refuse to let harmful thoughts cross your inner line of scrimmage. (Bad thoughts are as hard to block as defensive tackles are.)

If you won’t block your tormenting thoughts, they are going to tackle you. Football players practice with blocking dummies so that when the live action comes they’re ready. Learn to block negativity now!

Make a block for the team. Learn to block your tormenting thoughts so your family and friends won’t suffer from your negativity. Stiff arm your inner negativity. Run over it. Don’t let it run over you!

Block the devil; step aside and make lots of room for Jesus. Be careful not to do the opposite.

If you’re ready to block your harmful thoughts, my book, The Joy Of Early Christianity, will help you. Find it on Amazon.

Here’s a bonus thought: If somebody blocks you on Facebook, perhaps they’re just trying to protect their mind and heart from negativity.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
