2 Corinthians 10:5 instructed me that I'm not to simply sit still idly by and allow unhealthy fearful or worrisome thoughts to just continue on with free reign. I'm to use my 'mind self' to make a conscious decision to use all three of its (mind self) abilities, in regards to thoughts:

1) be aware of what they are saying

2) assess them for truthfulness per God's Word (hold them captive)

3) set/move its (mind self) attention to Truth, gently, if a false one is noticed in #2
