Have you lost your mind Week 1

2 Corinthians 10

3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 

4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 

5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

You are your brain. 

— Cleveland Clinic .

Your brain is a three pound universe that processes 70,000 thoughts each day using 100 billion neurons that connect at more than 500 trillion points through synapses that travel 300 miles/hour.

The signals that travel through these interconnected neurons form the basis of memories, thoughts and feelings.

Throughout your life your experiences create patterns of activity that explain how our brains code our thoughts, memories, skills and sense of self.

70%-80% of our thoughts lean negative. 

— TLEX Institute 

Philippians 4:8 — Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things.

We cannot live a positive life with a negative mind. 

What is underneath your irritability? 







Psalm 139:23-24 — Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!

“I am the subject of depressions of spirit so fearful that I hope none of you ever gets to such extremes of wretchedness as I go to.”

— Charles Spurgeon 

“Personally I have often passed through the dark valley.”

— Charles Spurgeon
