Scripture says that we should renew our mind and then also that the battle is in the mind. So our mind is pretty influential. In fact the mind is the cause for depression and if we can learn to control this thing that is called ‘the mind’ we might get victory over many areas in our life. It is also said "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he”
But how do we get to that point that we can link our mind to our will, in order to choose to think about things that are true, honest, things that are just, pure, lovely of good report and inspirational (phil 4:8).We have to fill our mind with these things first of all. If you think of the world today it is filled with negativity bombarding our thoughts constantly. It is a choice to rid yourself of the pessimism that overtakes the world and choose to look at things that have life.
When we choose to read, look at and listen to things that are in the positive realm, we train our brain to more easily be attracted to things lovely as Philippians 4:8 says. Even when we talk to people how often is the conversation just linked to all things negative and breaking down. I want to be a person who builds up …I know I still have a far way to go… but I guess I am in training…
Adios amigos have an awesome week
