Short and to the point today.
When your thinking has become an endless loop playing in your head hour after hour, you can bet it’s negative. Or, in cruder terms, stinkin’ thinkin.’
If you don’t stop it, you will end up taking anti-depressants and/or anti-anxiety pills and believing that the whole world is against you.
The only real fix is to change your thinking. Find what is true. Stinkin’ thinkin’ is almost always a lie. When we believe that how we feel must be the truth, we’re heading for a fall. Feelings change. Truth never does.
Hitler felt that Jews were running the world, so he murdered them by the millions. It was a lie, still is a lie. If he’d turned off the tape recorder in his head, he might not be remembered as the monster he became.
In the Bible, Cain felt his offering to God was better than Abel’s, even though it went against God’s expressed instructions. So he murdered Abel, believing that God would then accept his offering. Wrong again.
I could go on, but I think you get the picture. Make sure that whatever it is you are feeling that is pulling you down is actually the truth. Take out the old reel and replace it with the reel of truth.
You are God’s creation. He sent His Son to pay for your sin. He loves you with an everlasting love.
That is truth.
Believe the truth, not the lie.
