“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
Why me!? Well, why not me? This is the question and answer many give themselves, who have suffered a catastrophic event or injury. It’s undoubtedly understandable to be angry in such bad circumstances. However, it’s not always helpful or healing. While anger can help you break out of something(depression)or help you overcome it,it can also hold you back. Anger can anchor you in the past, or create unrest in your heart and mind. What you believe in is very powerful and will dictate the direction in which your life goes. Therefore, play the right mental movies for yourself. Films that portray you as the victor, times of happiness, and positive plot lines. These mental movies can stir up courage, hope, and strength or place fear and doubt in your heart. When the movies that you play yourself are the opposite of fear and doubt, it opens the door for peace to enter your mind and heart. “A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body”(Prov. 14:30nlt). If you find yourself in a hospital bed don’t take the situation lying down. Instead, screen films in your mental movie theatre of improving health, happy moments, and the day of your eventual discharge. Also, when dealing with a sickness be careful not to get anchored in the past for too long. Instead, keep your thoughts positive, the movies victorious, and your eyes forward. Your dreams can and will become a reality with a positive, and strong attitude. Not to mention, dreams don’t have to remain in the thought realm, dreams and life are meant to be experienced!
cheers and onward!
