Yeah, it feels a little like that. Maybe you can relate?
I believe this is a common issue, whether we live with mental illness like depression and anxiety or not. Our minds are complex, and this is a struggle for so many of us. It is common enough that the apostle Paul wrote about it, exhorting us to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
Our minds can entangle us, but we do not have to remain there. We can move forward into God’s plans for us. We do not have to be victims of the tangled assaults of our own minds. We can take our thoughts captive and, by forcing them to submit to Christ, can make them our greatest assets.
Friend, you can become disentangled.
