27 Oct MIND THE MIND
Mind The Mind.
Quite a number of us were taught very early in life about cleanliness and things to do and not do in order to stay in good shape. There were nursery rhymes, classes, books and the occasional ‘Cleanliness is next to godliness’ (for those of us with christian parents who wanted us to clean our rooms so badly that they had to call God into our matter 😂). However, taking care of your health doesn’t end at your physical being. There is a psychological part of us (our souls) that feeds off past events in our lives and practices in our environments. And if we are not careful to consciously reflect on them, the negative influences will poison our thoughts.
The fact is, sad/negative things happen to every single person, but how we react to them does not have to be negative. Don’t beat yourself up with harmful words when you do something wrong or because someone did wrong to you. Constantly seek out positive material and associate with people of sound minds. By doing so, you will eventually develop a healthy outlook on life, so that no matter the situation you find yourself in, your response will be to fight and not give up. The Bible already gives us advice on how to take care of our mental health.
“My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body. Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech”.
Proverbs 4:20-24 NLT
