Detoxing Your Mind

Thought I would share some inspirational words from Joel Osteen…

We hear a lot about detoxing our physical bodies today from all the chemicals, bacteria and pesticides in our foods. It does our body good to go through deep cleanses and rid our bodies of toxins. In the same way, there are all kinds of toxins that can build up in our mind. When we go around dwelling on the wrong thoughts, thinking about what we can’t do, how somebody hurt us, what someone said we couldn’t do, and how we’ll never get ahead; those thoughts are toxic thoughts. And toxic thoughts left alone become like toxic waste. It will eventually contaminate our whole life. It affects our self-image. It affects our attitude and our level of confidence. It becomes a part of who we are.

That’s why it says in Proverbs 4:23, “Above all else guard your heart for it affects everything you do.” The writer is saying to make guarding your mind a priority. Put this at the top of your “To Do” list because if your mind gets polluted, your whole life is going to be polluted. Every morning when we get up, we should go through this cleansing and detoxing. Forgive the people that have hurt us. Let go of every disappointment. Detox low self-esteem. Detox the negative words. Detox little dreams. If you will guard your mind and not let these toxic thoughts take root, but keep it full of faith-filled thoughts, you are going to rise higher and higher into new levels with God!

  1. “but keep it full of faith-filled thoughts, you are going to rise higher and higher into new levels with God”

    That’s what grabbed me…

    faith filled thoughts..

    what it is??

  2. Me like-y. There’s one scripture, Psalms 101, which is my detox passage. The best is the verse on shielding our eyes. Your eye should not even behold that which is ungodly. Nice post.

  3. 2Cor 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

    1Cor 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption;

    I love those verses.

    Tandra, the heart and mind are different. The mind deals with decisions you make. The heart is either evil or good. Actually, God gives His children new hearts and then tells them to renew their minds. To change their thinking. To live out Christianity is more than a heart matter, it is down to decision making.

    But thank God we are not left on our own: Php 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

    God bless

  4. Shhhffffff….so what is the diet? There should be…maybe you and Joel should write one- you know like….7 glasses of tears or two pairs of your absolutely wanted pairs of shoes…or a cup of the Word each day….dunno……sy….don’t hoard….
