Wellbeing, well-thinking, & well-doing

If we’re being driven by our thoughts, desires, and emotions, we’ve given up our self-control. If we resist negative mood swings, it’s harder for our emotions to push us around.

Life is full of both reasons for sadness and reasons for joy. Which reasons do you search for?

Our mindset sets the tone for our life. The more we set our mind on hope, the better our life will look to us. Both emotional and mental wellbeing require well-doing and well-thinking.

We have the ability to embrace or to resist individual thoughts, but too often we’re indifferent to that life-changing power. Try not to be unaware of what you’re talking and thinking yourself into.

Even when life outwardly seems to be going right, what’s wrong inside of us continues to need an inner cure. We can be embittered by life, or we can be empowered by it, but not both at the same moment.

It’s hard for other people to fix us from the outside because the ability to control our thoughts and behaviors resides inside us. If we’re not the choreographer of the thoughts that dance thru our brain, we’ve turned our mind over to chaos.

Walking in the light and courageously letting others see the inner burdens that we’re carrying, can somehow makes us feel lighter. Light is healing.

When negative, destructive, and/or tormenting feelings are fed and allowed to grow large, they cause much misery. Death by human hands saddens me. Suicide, violence, and abortion, all shout that we humans fail to treasure the gift of life.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
