Did you know that when you smile, whether it’s a genuine or forced smile, there are chemicals released to your brain? They send happy’ messages to your pre-frontal cortex. This is also true for every thought which we entertain. We are responsible for more than we take account of. We have the power to change our physiology and impact our biology.
What are your entertaining? It’s very easy right now to focus on the state of the world. It’s also very easy to block it out and get lost in our own minds, to- do lists and even relationships. It’s also possible to sulk and depress ourselves into a mood or biological state.
Are you complaining? worrying? Looking to be stimulated? are you praying? Where is your focus?
God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
2 Tim. 1: 7
