The health of your life is tied to the health of your soul
With everything going on around us...it’s easy to lose focus on what’s going on in us.
You can’t control the things around you but you can control what’s going on inside of you
WHAT IS THE SOUL?
Soul - psuché - psychology
We are Spirit, Soul, Body - Spirit gets saved at salvation. Soul (your mind, your will and your emotions) are being saved. Body will be saved
If our soul is - our mind, will (desires), and emotions, then how do we get a healthy soul?
We have a culture where emotions are high and wisdom is low.
People make decisions based on emotions. - What feels good/bad. Led by fear, anxiety, worry
EMOTIONS ARE A GOOD GAUGE BUT A BAD GUIDE
Rationality only represents about 20% of human decision-making - emotions drive 80% of the choices we make. - 80% of our decisions are feelings based regardless of truth or facts
If you want a healthy life and a healthy soul there is a process.
THOUGHTS > BELIEFS > FEELINGS > ACTIONS
YOUR THOUGHTS HAVE POWER
Rene Descartes - “I think...therefore I am"
Proverbs 23:7 - For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..
- Your life is moving in the direction of your strongest thoughts - Craig Groeschel
- Battlefield of the Mind - Joyce Meyer - You cannot have a positive life with a negative mind
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT
- What are you letting in? What are you watching, who are you talking to, what are you listening to? - What negative thoughts have ruled you without you realizing it?
