"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

"FOOD FOR THOUGHTS."

"FOOD FOR THOUGHTS."
We are the ones who suffer when we hold onto past grievances. We give situations and people in our past power over us, and the same situations and people keep us mentally enslaved. They continued to control us when we stay stuck in "unforgiveness". This is why forgiveness work as of paramount importance.
We arrive to a point in life where we much stop chanting names of those who have not been good to us for reasons better known to them. We have to lift them out from our minds lest they occupy a permanent residence and capture our brains, thus causing stress and harm.
I could see what is wrong with those folks with a narrow kind of mind set that can't forget. Actually, I find it ironic those preaching God and judging others are most -un-godly. But it is a beautiful thing to see so many people waking up to the collective conscious. That is what I encourage all to focus on, attract the positive energy, and counteract the negative energy.
How you ever heard about Seasonal Moods, like Winter Moods?...
While some of us love the autumnal scenes, others dread the accompanying dark nights and harsh weather. With the nights drawing in, the relentless rain, and the gloomy sky, Seasonal Affective Disorder sufferers are dreading the impending months of Autumn and Winter.
How the Winter Blues can cause depression?...
The condition is caused by a Biochemical Imbalance in the Hypothalamus due to the shortening of daylight hours, and the lack of sunlight in Winter.
The lack of light throws off our body clocks, leading to sadness. Symptoms include lethargy, sleeping troubles, loss of interest, anxiety, social problems, depression, and craving for carbohydrates and sweet food. For many people, sadness is a disabling illness, preventing them from functioning normally without continuous medical treatment. For others, it is a mild condition causing discomfort, but not a severe suffering.
This is known as subsyndromal "sadness" or "Winter Blues." It is estimated that a further 17% of the U.S. population have this milder form of condition.
"Light Therapy" can help beat the blues of those who struggle to survive the wintery months.
Try to find a hobby/activity or something for you to enjoy doing, apart from your usual tasks.
I am sure it might help you a great deal.
I know it does to me.
I keep my mind active.
God Bless!
