As Christians we can choose at Thanksgiving and the rest of our years:
1. First, the choice is ours: Encourage or discourage.
2. Second, the choice is ours: we can laugh or lament.
we can celebrate or complain
Peace of Mind
The following eight keys to emotional and mental stability are based on a study by Duke
University. I believe you will find them helpful as I have and I wanted to share them with you:
…The first key is “Get rid of suspicion and resentment.” Nursing grudge is a major factor in unhappiness.
... The second is, “Don’t live in the past.” An unwholesome preoccupation with old mistakes and failures leads to depression. Say, “This too shall pass.”
Then let it!
…The third is, “Don’t waster time and energy fighting conditions you cannot change.”
Cooperate with life instead of trying to run from it.
…The fourth is, “Force yourself to stay involved with the living world.” Resist the temptation to
withdraw and become reclusive during periods of emotional stress.
…The fifth is, “Refuse to indulge in self-pity when life hands you a raw deal.” Accept the fact
that nobody gets through life without some sorrow and misfortune.
… The sixth is, “Cultivate the old fashioned virtues-love, compassion, humor, and loyalty.”
… Number seven is, “Do not expect too much of yourself.” When there is too wide a gap between
self-expectation and your ability to meet the goals you have set, feelings of inadequacy are
… And finally, number eight is, “Find something bigger than yourself to believe in.”
Self-centered, egotistical people score lowest in any test measuring depression.
I pray that you found these words helpful and healing and I pray for you a Happy Thanksgiving!
