I am really enjoying preaching at the moment as I am looking at how our thoughts direct our lives, and there are some wonderful verses to teach from!
Take Proverbs 17 v 22 for example.
Proverbs is stuffed full of advice as to how we should live our lives.
In this verse we are told that it is healthy to be an optimist.
If we have merry thoughts, if we are on optimist, this is like taking a medicine.
We take medicine to make us better, to bring us back into health, so this verse is saying merry thoughts can make us well!
You may think this is nonsense, but science is actually now proving this truth.
Studies have shown that optimists are sick less than pessimists.
Science is actually catching up with the Bible in this area!
What is your dominant thought pattern in this area, do you think like an optimist or a pessimist, do you look on the good in things or focus on the bad?
How you think can determine your levels of health!
So if we know this and alter or improve our thinking, we can improve our health; this is so exciting!
We can affect our lives through our thoughts; this is an amazing Biblical truth.
You can control your thoughts and you should!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I can alter and improve my thoughts and as a result improve my life”
Proverbs 17 v 22…..A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones
