I think I have some wisdom and insight into the antidote for people who are sick in their emotions, those holding resentments, bitterness, anger and even hatred toward another person, God or themselves. They are suffering from things like depression, autoimmune disorders, anxieties, pain and inflammation, to name a few. Dr. Caroline Leaf says, "Researchers say that 87% of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life...what we think about affects us physically and emotionally. It's an epidemic of toxic emotions". (For those reading this that are on prescription medication, keep taking your medication until your Doctor gives you permission to be off of it, but at the same time, I would encourage you to accept the truth of God's Word and take it like medicine each day, believing for a change in your situation). Most of us are very careful about what we feed our children, pets, and ourselves, but when it comes to our heart and mind, we feed it toxic thoughts, wrong thinking, and that can become like a poison to our immune system. People who are quick to thank and praise the Lord, quick to confess their sins and receive forgiveness, and quick to reach out to help other people tend to have a greater level of health in their body and soul.
TAKE THIS MEDICINE FOR A HEALTHIER YOU!
The Word of God says in Philippians 4: 7-9- And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think on these things. Whatever you have learned and received and heard from me, and seen in me, put these things into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.…
Proverbs 17:22 - A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
It is God's desire that we don't live a stress filled life, frantic and overburdened. In 1 Peter 5:7 He says: "Cast the whole of your care, ALL your anxieties, ALL your worries unto Him, because He cares for you watchfully."
Why don't we just do that right now, let it ALL go, lay it ALL down at Jesus's feet, those resentments, that anger, that bitterness and trust in God, because GOD'S GOT IT!
