A Healthy Mind

March 21, 2017

Healthy Mind is something that God has given to us.

Health, in its simplest definition, is the state of being free from illness or injury. Although it is mostly associated with the physical aspect, health equally refers to a person’s mental condition as well.

There is much said today concerning how to improve our health by developing habits of optimism, whether dealing with a difficult medical diagnosis or a conflict at work. One way is to practice positive actions that will serve as an antidote to pessimism and discouragement. It is significant for everyone to have a healthy mind in order to keep themselves on track.

How to achieve a healthy mind in Christ?

A healthy mind can be achieved through a lot of ways. First is by releasing stress. People can release stress by exploring different activities that may bring them joy, gratitude, love and fulfillment. Second is by listening to inspirational or relaxing music. For some, listening to music takes them to a world without any struggles, where they feel free. But the most important method is through simply talking to God. Giving all worries and doubts to Him will bring peace of mind to anyone seeks it.

“Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22). God wants people to lean on Him for support; He will carry all burdens and keep people from slipping. God is always listening to our prayers. He greatly loves us and does not forget the sacrifice of Jesus. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”  (John 3:16). This verse shows the love of God to people. Jesus sacrificed for us. He is the source of our hope. He can fill our hearts and minds with peace.

Remember: Trust in the Lord, do good and commit your way to the Lord. That is the formula to a healthy mind.
