Our thoughts matter because Neuroscience teaches us that thoughts have matter. Quantum Physics reinforces that finding stating that thoughts can be registered on special computers. Oh how I wished I had paid more attention in my physics classes! Dr. Caroline Leaf says that thoughts are measurable and occupy mental “real estate.” Thoughts are active and influence every decision, word, action, physical reaction and behavior. It is so healthy and God-honoring to look at what kind of thoughts are taking up space in our brain’s real estate. It’s a discipline to “Take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5. The Message says it this way, “Fit every thought, emotion, and impulse into the structure of life shaped by God.” Our life’s work is to do this ourselves and to encourage those with whom we are privileged to work to do that as well.
