I’ve spent the bulk of my career as a neuropsychologist teaching about the importance of our thoughts and our words. It’s not much of a surprise that many of the podcast episodes we’ve aired touch on the importance of our thought life. In this episode, I’m sharing snippets of favorite interviews on our thought life and the words we speak to celebrate the 2-year anniversary of the Your Hope-Filled Perspective podcast.
Paying attention to our thought life is important! As a neuropsychologist, I can tell you we have between 50-70,000 thoughts a day. That’s a lot of taking thoughts captive but so worth it. If you have ever struggled with your thought life, then join me today with my guest, Sarah Geringer, and learn about changing your thoughts and transforming your life.
Dear Dr. B,
I’m a man in my 60’s. Depression has been my Goliath as long as I can remember. I am a believer that has a fairly good grasp on Gods word. Yet I can’t muster the joy and happiness that the Word says is mine. I’m reading your book, “Hope Prevails: Insights From a Doctor’s Personal Journey Through Depression” and have the companion “Hope Prevails Bible Study.” At times, I’m out of hope. A saying I learned as a professional airline pilot describing a crash site was, “The place where the pilots ran out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas all at the same time.” I’ve been close to that place more times than I can count. Can I realistically shed this Goliath in my life?
Ready for Joy
Part of what contributes to depression is our stale thinking. When something is stale, it is on it’s way to a slow death, no longer full of life and freshness. So stale thinking is any thought that does not yield life, but pulls us down. Learn how to eliminate stale thinking.
