Rent-free in my head

This last semester one of the phrases that lingered from a student’s paper was the phrase, “living rent-free in my head.”

It’s a great turn of phrase and underlines the power of unexamined, unchallenged assumptions that can linger, exercising unwelcome control over us….limiting and misshaping our daily existence.

How do they inhibit your own spiritual freedom?

Your relationship with God?

Your relationship with those you love?

How would this day change if you issued those ideas an eviction notice?
