Build better brain boundaries.

Brain boundaries are standards for what is allowed in your stream of consciousness. Wise brain boundaries improve mental health. If you don’t maintain uplifting brain boundaries, you’ll be harassed by downward spiraling thoughts.

A brain without boundaries, like a boat filling with water, struggles to stay afloat. Some plants aren’t fit for human consumption. Some thoughts aren’t either! Open your brain to what enhances your mental health. Close it to what degrades it.

Life goes much better when we refuse to think unhealthy and unwise thoughts. Deceptive thoughts that distort truth abound. Defend yourself against them and dispel them. The more comfortable you get with unwholesome thoughts the more your mental boundaries will recede. Without brain boundaries a human mind will gradually fill with trash.

Maintain wise brain boundaries. Protect your mind and defend your brain by courageously repelling all self-destructive, tormenting, and sinful thoughts. Welcome thoughts that build your mental health. Strongly resist and reject those that don’t.

When we’re unwilling to defend our brain by persistently rejecting unhealthy thoughts our mental health suffers. Fight for your rights! Your mind belongs to you. You have the right to resist and reject unwanted thoughts.

It’s important that you admit and expel any unwholesomeness that you’ve allow into your brain. You won’t feel fully forgiven until you’ve honestly admitted your guilt.

It's crucial
To get your mind
Out of neutral
So you don't coast
Into mental despair
And let thoughts
Your joy and hope.

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!
