Our Thoughts Matter

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....

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...
