Restructured thinking Romans 12:1-8
verse 2    “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
 One of the most popular approaches by psychologists to helping troubled souls nowadays is what is called ‘cognitive restructuring.’  Wrong thoughts are challenged and then changed to ones that are more helpful.  A psychiatrist who carried out research into the positive qualities that make for good mental health, said, “I dreamed of writing a handbook that would be simple, practical and easy to follow; it would tell people how to live – what thoughts and attitudes and philosophies to cultivate and what pitfalls to avoid in seeking good mental health.  And quite by accident I discovered that such a work had been completed – the Beatitudes.”
Prayer:  “Father, I long not just to live, but to live abundantly.  This is what You promise me through Your Son.  Help me to learn, listen and obey.  Amen”
