"How healing it is to know that for Christians,  the initial automatic, random, unplanned, involuntary thoughts that they experience, while totally normal and are to be accepted, are totally meaningless & irrelevant"

- John Patrick

Gerontologist and Founder, Christian Mental Health Ministries 

The mind

A set of faculties that includes: consciousness, imagination, perception, thinking, intelligence, judgement, language, and memory (wikipedia)

Christian Mental Health - Our Part


Using one's conscious mind faculty to: 1) perceive one's thinking and imagination , 2) acknowledge, welcome, and accept it all, 3) judge it for Truth with God's Word, and 4) set the conscious mind faculty's attention on the Truth (2 Corinthians 10:5 and Romans 8:5)

Christian Mental Health - God's Part 


Using one's conscious mind faculty to choose to just sit; in stillness, silence, and solitude.  Allowing God to do the 'doing' (healing), and us just do the 'being' (Matthew11:28 and Psalm 46:10)
