Stinkin’ Thinkin’ (Romans 12:2)

After years of abuse, many victims have been almost brainwashed into continued “stinkin’ thinkin'”. Even though their abusers may be out of the picture, their minds have a way of thinking negative instead of positive. This “stinkin’ thinkin'” has to stop… so we have to transform our minds. We do this by holding every thought captive… and only coming into agreement with good thoughts. It’s not easy… but then we are all a “work in progress”.

Stinkin’ Thinkin’…
is the words I would hear.
When I was depressed,
with confusion and fear.

 Stop that stinkin’ thinkin’…
is what my sister would say…
when I was crying and upset
and not able to get through the day.

Stinkin’ Thinkin’
is what abusers cause…
as they put victims down…
and exaggerate any flaws.

Constantly negative…
they criticize…
they hurt…
they terrorize…

These words tear victims down…
like constantly getting beat.
Then settle in their minds…
thoughts of total defeat.

This stinkin’ thinkin’…
is what abusers plan.
Wanting victims to not think,
like putting their heads in sand.

For this defeated thinkin’
from manipulation and control…
occurs as abusers repeatedly attack,
wounding victim’s spirit and soul.

So let go of the negative,
all of our stinkin’ thinkin’..
for victims are overcomin’
and comin’ back strong and kickin’.

No more abuse!
is what we declare…
No more stinkin’ thinkin’…
so abusers beware!

“…casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” 2 Corinthians 10:5

  1. Can’t relate to this enough! I’m not as bad as I used to be but what you write here is SO true. When you finally do manage to get out of an abusive relationship you still manage to prolong the abuse with self abuse. It is such a vicious cycle that can be hard to recognize and stop in its tracks but for me I am down with no more “stinkin thinkin” lol Great post! 🙂

    • I totally agree with you. After years of abuse, it’s a cycle of self abuse that even the victims have to break from their own minds. We get so used to the negative words that we don’t even realize that we put ourselves down. I too am still working on the “no more stinkin’ thinkin’!”

    To good not to share! For those of us who have suffered the hands of abuse and are trying to overcome that time in your life….or even if you are trying to get out of it right now, you will find this post highly relate able. I know I did! 🙂 ❤

    • Awe… thanks but still a work in progress too. It takes a long time to overcome every wound that has been inflicted. But I praise God for what He has done for me and my children. God bless you, Roland!!
