2 Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.
45 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
How can we find peace when we’re drowning in negative thoughts.
Our brain is just like every other part of our body. What we feed it matters. The the food we eat impacts our mental health, but the information we feed our brain matters just as much.
Ask yourself: What are you feeding your brain?
Luke 6:45 tells us that our words and actions will reflect our thought life. While we’re not always in control of our thoughts, we have control over how we fill our minds.
You know what fuels fear, comparison, negativity, and hopelessness in your life. Spending too much time focused on those things will impact your mental health. That’s why it’s helpful to disconnect.
Disconnecting may look like putting away your devices and spending time outside. It could mean meditating on Scripture or listening to a worship song. Or calling a friend when you feel trapped in a spiral of worry and doubt.
Disconnecting isn’t living in denial. You’re not trying to ignore your problems or pretend they don’t impact your life. Instead, disconnecting is an intentional choice to pause, breathe, and be mindful.
Friends, prayer, Scripture, and disconnecting won’t make what you’re facing go away, but they can encourage you and give you direction as you move toward peace.
Knowing God’s Word helps us fight negativity. Write in your journal any of your favorite verses or stories from Scripture that encourage you
Try a new hobby or habit to find rest that will allow you to get out of your head and disconnect. If you already have go-to ways of finding rest, keep doing those things.
