Beloved,
We are admonished to bring every thought into captivity unto the obedience of Christ. This is done by casting down imaginations and capturing every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. (2 Cor. 10:5). As we do this we are always led in triumph through our conquering King Jesus Christ. Our wayward thoughts actually become part of His victorious train and we are caught up in the secret place of Joyful Captivity. (2 Cor. 2:14).
 
JOYFUL CAPTIVITY
 
Secretly enjoying You
Joying in You
Each thought into captivity
I live secretly
 
I am me
In Christ
A triumphant life
Of hiding
 
Deeply abiding
I am confiding
In holy whispers
From my Conqueror
 
I hear
His voice
My private choice
To know Him
 
No other reason
To choose
I lose
All other options
 
At the cross
Gazing on His loss
I find my life
Through death’s door
 
I am no more
Christ in me
Responding joyously
Triumphant victory
 
Oh, so secretly
Deep in my heart
Where faith imparts
A simple knowing
 
Through obedient thoughts
Captured by love
Soaring above
In joyful liberty
 
In Christ’s captivity
Just for Him
In faith’s realm
Where secrets dwell
 
Between Him and me
Faith’s reality
Holy sanctity
Face to face
 
In the secret place
Where love lives
Where self dies
Where joy is realized
 
Abiding in You
Confiding in You
Hiding in You
Obeying You
 
In simple trust
I put away lusts
Invading my mind
They can’t survive
 
In my secret place
My mind at peace
Enjoying tranquility
In joyful captivity
 
Woody Winchell
