Think what you are thinking about!

And now, brothers, as I close this letter, let me say this one more thing: 
Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. 
Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, 
good things in others. 
Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about.  
-Philippians 4:8

These are very powerful, emotionally healing verses in the Bible.

"Thoughts are automatic. They just happen. They are based on complex chemical reactions and information from the past. And what most people don’t know is that thoughts are sneaky and they lie. They lie a lot. It is often these uninvestigated thoughts that provide the emotional fuel for anger, anxiety, depression, and unhealthy behaviors such as overeating. "
-Dr Daniel Amen

But the great news is that we can protect ourselves from our own thoughts.
By renewing our minds...with God’s help we can stay in control of our thoughts.
The helpful thing to do is to ask ourselves: Is it true?
If not, replace that negative, false thought with correct information.  
 For example you might think: "oh I'm not beautiful".
Is it true? NO, because the Bible tells that I'm fearfully and wonderfully made!

 So...remember to think what you are thinking about!
