mental health

My Frame of Mind

I was a bit hasty to post this photo yesterday. I have been mulling over many things, over the past months. As we all know aggression and atrocities have increased against human beings, babies in the womb, animals as well. People are impatient and have no problem making their viewpoint known. Anger and self control have exited out the door perhaps never to return. Loss of life in different manners. My heart sinks at times for the icky stuff happening. My thoughts have been to address the importance of mental health, mental well being. What am I doing, what are each of us doing to contribute to having and maintaining a healthy mindset? What can we do different to maintain peace of mind, so that the darkness doesn’t overtake us and consume us? We all have trials and battles, those battles of the mind that try to persist. How can we help those that are struggling. What we meditate on daily effects our thinking. Is it good, positive, encouraging? So this I share today. Not sure what to do with this idea, but for now, this is what is on my heart.

Be careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5: 15-16
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 20-23

  1. The programmers had (have?) a phrase for it: GIGO. Garbage in, garbage out. What we take in influences the kind of people we are, and the reality is that today’s social media is devoted to making us angry, hateful, and divisive. Likewise, much ‘entertainment’ is nothing but an advertisement for violence and encourages violent behavior. Begone, says me!
