2 Ways to Maintain Healthy Thinking

This 1-minute devotion offers 2 Biblical principles for maintaining a healthy thought life.


Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses, and some of us find it especially challenging to "take our thoughts captive" (2 Corinthians 10:3-6).

I can over-think things and make myself miserable. Others can under-think and become irresponsible. These two steps can keep over and under thinkers on track. 

1. Dwell on what's good in your life (Philippians 4:8-9). 

What if we can't think of anything good? Usually we need to re-focus. But even when our life is at its worst, we can always dwell on these:

⇨Our salvation (Romans 6:23).

Our knowledge that one day all suffering will end (Rev. 21:4).

Scripture passages and songs that give us hope and strength (Colossians 3:16).


2. Guard your heart (Proverbs 4:23).

Make sure that the influences in your life are uplifting. That includes: 

Entertainment (TV, movies, etc.) (Psalm 101:3).

Music (Ephesians 5:18-20).

⇨Relationships - as much as it depends on you to choose the right companions (1 Corinthians 15:33).

⇨Sleep and proper nutrition are also necessary for right thinking. (See Eat, Rest, Cry.)


I'm thankful we serve a supernatural God who gives us practical ways to deal with life!
