     First off, very much enjoyed the article!  Thank you!  
    How do I gain mental power?   By clinging to God . . . by clinging to truth, my mind thinks most clearly.  What is an evil thought?  For me, it is something NOT Loving . . . it is something NOT true.  Would God desire one of His own to to hang to evil thoughts  for any length of time?  I think not.
    When a mistruth/something unloving pops up in my head, I use DISTRACTION to remove it.  Reversing the lie of my thought with truth.  "Do not be overcome by evil . . . but overcome evil with good"  are the words repeated in an old VBS song I use to teach children.  Love it.  Love YOU!
