Thoughts and Health

The study of the brain from a physical and biological standpoint leaves much we do not understand. Thoughts are powerful. They can change the world for better or for worse. Evil taught cause murder, riots, lawlessness, even war. They change not only the environment of a person, they change the man himself. The wise man, Solomon, wrote "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23:7).

You can control to a large extent your mind and the kinds of thoughts on which you dwell. Discipline your mind to think good thoughts. Careless, negative thoughts cause depression, anxiety, and even sickness.

The powerful influence for good or evil thinking is not confined to yourself but is far reaching. Your thoughts create a positive or negative atmosphere around you. They may be full of faith, courage, hope, and love or may produce an atmosphere of gloom, discontent, or selfishness. It is within your power to choose the topics that occupy your thoughts and shape your life.
