"How healing it is to know that per scripture, the unconscious, automatic, random, unplanned, involuntary thoughts that one experiences/notices, while totally normal and are to be accepted, are totally meaningless & irrelevant, unless they are assessed for truthfulness with God's Word"

 

The Human Mind

made up of:

1) unconscious (random, involuntary, unintentional, unplanned, automatic, spontaneous) thinking

2) conscious (pre-planned, voluntary, intentional) thinking  

Keys to optimal Christian mental health

Our part

During waking hours, not while in bed, actively & gently using one's conscious mind to:

1) acknowledge and welcome (not fight or try to rid oneself of) unconscious thinking

2) gently perceive/see/notice unconscious thinking (what's being thought about?)

3) judge the unconscious thinking as being True or False, per God's Word

4) set conscious mind attention (belief) on Truth discovered

(2 Corinthians 10:5 and Romans 8:5)

 

God's part 

Using one's conscious mind to choose to just sit; in stillness, silence, and solitude.  Twice a day, for at least 20 minutes each sitting, allowing God to do the 'doing' (healing & restoring), and us to do the 'being' (Matthew11:28 and Psalm 46:10)
