Apparently insanity is doing something over and over…

..and thinking you’ll get different results.

Last week my PT told me that I needed to change my eating habits. I wasn’t eating badly but to achieve the results I wanted I needed to change the way I consume food.

I’m supposed to eat 6-7 times a day with only a handful of food. In order to comprehend this, to make it a habit I need to stop my current routine and put effort into changing my patterns. I just had a snack at 11:39 so therefore at 2:39 I need to eat a cup of soup. Strange? Yes. Effective? Apparently…and why not try.

The same goes with your thought life. Your thoughts are powerful and can take you in both a good and bad direction. I think a lot. I mean, if you have ever had a conversation with me I’m all of a sudden coming out with something that SEEMS like it’s not related but I have created a chain in my brain and it makes sense to me.

I have always struggled with keeping my thoughts controlled. Being a very passionate person I can easily end up going off on tangents. But the Bible says “Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ 2 Cor. 10:5

A few years ago Christine Caine likened the thought process to trains. You may be on a train going in one direction and realise it’s not the right destination so you must get off and jump on another train. Staying on that train will take you to the wrong destination and just getting off won’t help but keep you stuck where you are.

Lately thoughts of not being good enough, self worth, value, pain, hurt, have TRIED to fill my brain and my thought life. The Bible says “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” I have had to stop. Get off the proverbial train and jump on one that says my value is secure, spoken for, I’m loved, adored and taken care of forever. That I will always be enough to God.

I challenge you to look at the thoughts that fill your heard. Are they pure? Lovely? Admirable? Excellent or praiseworthy? 

If not, you’re not going to move forward in life…and quite frankly, that can lead to insanity.

Currently loving this song.
