How Do I Keep My Mind Pure
Maybe these Scriptures will help you keep your thoughts in line with God.
2Co 10:4 (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds),
:5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
:6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience shall be made full.

Control what you are thinking about. Replace it with good thoughts and with the Word of God.

Do you think your thoughts are wrong? If not you will never change them. Second everytime you think of your impure thoughts you give them power. When one pops in your head, pray, and ask yourself what is leading to the thought, there is always a thought that is first, that is the one you must identify, really think about what you are getting from these thoughts, anything worth while? You could have a disorder if they are really bad thoughts. Who do you hang out with? Lonely? Bored? Keep looking!

Don't focus on negative things.Forgive.
Don't do anything evil.Learn what the good is and focus on its rewards.As it is writen,
whatsoever things are just, right, of good
report and positive,think on these things,
...and then follow them.
And you are almost there.

Let Jesus teach you how. Are you born again? If not receive Jesus today. Read the book of Joy, Phillipians especially chapter 4. I don't know how old you are. You did not say. It won't happen overnite but you need to commit to Christ and let Him do the work in you....There is victory in Jesus.

Everything we see and hear is like a seed planted in our mind & cannot be erased. Therefore, guard it carefully. Perhaps cut back on television, random internet usage, listening to worldly music, idle conversations, etc. Instead, replace those activities with bible study, prayer, meditation and promoting the gospel through your words and deeds. A mind focused on Him experiences perfect peace, but an idle mind is another story. Hope this helps and grace to you. :)

DONT DWELL on it, read the bible daily re focus, when your mind starts to think of impure things go get the bible and read it , then praise the Lord, so FEED it , his word is alive, pray and ask the Lord to take this bondage from you every day pray this until he does. we all were born into a sinful body we have to fight against it daily, reading his word daily (chapters at a time not just one verse) will drive those evil thoughts out, READ THE BIBLE TO SATAN OUT LOUD, HE WILL FLEE

I work for a family of hypocrits, others there also have filthy mouths, etc. I keep a Bible nearby and also a radio tuned to Christian music ... keeps me focused. As a human sometimes it's hard to keep my head where it should be when someone is cursing me for something I haven't done. I do have a rebellious spirit in me, which can be good at times. Man said because it's business it's ok to cuss me, says he's a Christian too.

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." Phillipians 4:8 (ESV). What do you do with your time each day? The old addage about 'never be idle (no purpose)' is true!
