Positive “Thought Trees”

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” Proverbs 23:7. That means that you are what you think. New research in the field of Neuroscience is proving this Scripture to be true. For years we thought that the brain could not be reprogrammed or changed. But now we know from this field that the brain can be reformed and changed, a process called neuroplasticity. Each thought creates a “thought tree” in the brain called a dendrite. Negative thoughts create negative thought trees and the more you think negatively the more those trees grow. These negative thoughts lead to negative attitudes like low self-esteem, hopelessness, lack of faith in God, depression and more. Negative attitudes lead to negative behaviors, control, anger, and selfishness. The good news is you can stop these negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. The brain can be rewired to think positively but it will take practice. It will take daily renewing your mind and Paul says in Romans 12:2, “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind which is in Christ Jesus.” Our thoughts shape our lives, so let’s start growing positive “thought trees” so our attitudes and behaviors become positive as well.
