The gift of a sound mind

“God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)

This is a great verse to remember, if only for the part about not fearing. However, today I am focusing on the last part, the “sound mind” part. Over the past few weeks God has been dropping hints with me, reminding me ever so gently that words are powerful, and that words have the power to affect our minds. And as our minds are affected, so are our hearts. So when I have a heavy heart, God’s Word is the perfect starting place for change. I can meditate on His words, His TRUTH, and let it sink in to my heart. When my mind feels afflicted or confused or just plain ragged, there is no magic formula to fix it. Unless? Reading what God says is true = healing of the mind = heart at peace? I believe this is a true statement. God has given us a sound mind. We just need to remember that and go get it. Chances are, it’s closer than we think. 

Oh phooey, I don’t know what else to say about this. It sounds too easy, doesn’t it?
