A growth (not fixed) mindset

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” (attributed to Albert Einstein)

Approach this wellbeing journey with a mindset of proactivity and growth, even if you feel like you’re currently stuck. Take some time to mark where you are at on your life dashboard in the six areas – full, empty, half-full? Remember: with God’s help and your determination you can and will change.

(Excerpt from Dave Smith, God’s Plan for your Wellbeing.)

An overcoming (not overwhelmed) mindset

  • Dispute the negative thinking (write down the false thoughts and dispute them with the truth (especially from the Bible).
  • Get back control. See exercise for Day 3. Choose not to take responsibility for the things you cannot control but act on the things you can control.
  • Connect with others. Reach out to one trusted person today.

A faith (not fear) mindset

Faith is closely linked with trust. We need to put our faith in God, who alone is completely trustworthy and reliable. Feed your faith (spend regular time in God’s word) and starve your fears (2 Tim 1.7, James 4.7-8). Write down your primary fears, invite God to show you the reasons for your greatest fear. Then command the fear to go in Jesus’ name.

Wellbeing Thought for the Day Wednesday 10th February 2021

Wednesday 10 Feb

Depleted or replenished?

There is good tired (after a good workout or a long and productive day) and bad tired. Chronic fatigue is dangerous! Take a few moments to pray and thank God that he understands our humanity. As you go through your day, check your fatigue levels. Invite God to refresh you and to teach you rhythms of replenishment.

Security and belonging

People who have a sense of security and belonging are more likely to weather the storms of life. “The key to understanding security is learning to relate to the eternal, not the temporal.” (Dr Neil Anderson) Make two lists: things you can control and things you can’t control. Make sure the goals you set yourself are from the list of things you can control. Commit all other things to God and his care.

Identity

We tend to look for our identity in the wrong places: by comparing ourselves with other people or by looking within ourselves. True identity comes from an ever-growing relationship with our loving God who alone can satisfy our deepest needs. Take a look at an “In Christ” declaration and make it your own.

Wellbeing Thought for the day Sunday 7th February

WEEK ONE: A WELLBEING MINDSET

 

Sunday 7 Feb

Peace of mind

No real change can take place until a person’s thinking is changed.

  • Take control of your thoughts (replace lies with biblical truths – “I am useless” > “I am a beloved child of God.”).
  • Cast your cares upon God (1 Peter 5.7)
  • Connect with people and help people
  • Be thankful
