Feeding It Makes It Grow

Scientists say that we create pathways in our brains – we teach our own brains how to think.

Someone who’s constantly feeling judged is telling themselves that everyone around them is judging them, and is training their brain to think that way. They’re training their minds to believe they’re judged by everyone around them.

Someone who’s constantly angry has trained themselves into the anger by rehashing slights and offenses that happen to them through their day.

On the positive side, someone who’s consistently joyful has more than likely worked at remaining joyful.

It takes work. Otherwise God wouldn’t have to command us to do it.

This is why God put Philippians 4:8 in the Bible.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

We so often just leave our mind to do its own thing, trying to be reactive instead of proactive in regards to what we think about and guarding our minds. But instead, we need to take the reins and train that mind of ours to do what God says it ought to do.

You may need some extra help sometimes, I get that. I’m not talking about clinical depression or mental illness here.

It may be a daily struggle, it may be something that’s tough and an uphill battle, but with God, all things are possible.

About the Author:

Sherry Chamblee

Sherry grew up in various cities around northern and central California. This gave her all sorts of stories that sat and festered in her brain, waiting to be let loose. She eventually went to college in Wisconsin, where she met her equally frenetic husband, Rich. They have six (yes, count them) children, two dogs and a cat, and currently reside in a madhouse in the southern California area. As a family, they enjoy being active in their local church. Sherry spends her time writing when not caring for Granny, the kids, the dogs, the cat and any number of strays in the neighborhood.
