Overcoming Depression with the Words of Gratitude (11.28.2021)

November 30, 2021

According to brain scientists, such as Dr. Caroline Leaf, who argues, "People who are grateful feel less pain, less stress, suffer insomnia less, have stronger immune system, experience healthier relationships, and do better academically and professionally."  These brain scientists must have been reading the Bible, which Paul writes 2000 years ago to be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18). The followers of Christ must be experts in thinking and speaking words of gratitude because it is God's will for us to be thankful in all circumstances. When all Christ followers of Christ are speaking out loud words of gratitude to themselves and to others, not only we overcome depression, but we can truly be the salt of the earth, in which we make our world tastier.
