Your life is full of (thoughts) like boats adrift and most of them are empty and negative thoughts running on a collision course with your faith. But your mind clouds your perception as to who set them adrift when trying to keep the faith. It urges you to find the pilot(s) which oftentimes you identify as Satan when they are bad thoughts, because you need to blame and place guilt on someone other than self. But thoughts happens and when you cannot find out why they happened you pacify an answer stating Satan is in control of those thougjts.
Being you are taught that Satan is in control of bad thoughts you are taught that it's not you, but you are part of everything that happens whether life or death, rich or poorer, health or sickness. Not every thought in life is from the acts of Satan. If so, when do you take control of your own thoughts.
