This CD is a 1hr presentation on Being Thankful
Sometimes people get so wrapped up in their problems, they can't see a solution. For them, the only light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming locomotive. But by changing their attitude and the way they perceive things, they can burst forth into the light and rise above their problems. The problems may still be there, but they are no longer beaten down by them.
Why do some patients given the same diagnosis live longer than others? Could the difference be their attitude? A man came to me several years ago and told me he had been diagnosed with cancer and only had about six months to live. He said, "I told the doctor, 'Like h---! I understand that if God takes me, fine. But I'm going to beat this d--- cancer!" His dream was to spend his retirement traveling with his wife so after his diagnosis, he bought a motor home and set out This man was determined that the illness wasn't going to be his death sentence. That's probably why his six months turned into a number of years.
If you want to change your life you must first learn to change your attitude. Did you know that in the past few hours you might have had a negative attitude that, if entertained, may weaken your immune system and cause you to develop an unwanted health problem? It may even affect you mentally and emotionally and cause depression. But did you also know that in the past few hours you may have had a positive attitude, that if entertained, could strengthen your immune system and protect you from illness and disease and give you peace of mind and happiness?
Negative attitudes can weaken the immune system and slow down or stop the healing process. At the International Conference of the Psychology of Health, Immunity and Disease, a speaker shared with us some research done involving the mind/body connection. The researchers took one group of people and had them watch a violent movie. After viewing the movie, blood samples were taken from each person in the group and their immune systems registered very low. The next day, they had the same group watch a movie about Mother Theresa. They took more blood samples and this time their immune systems registered extremely high. Their attitude, their mental process, had a direct effect on their body, in this case, their immune system.
On the CD I will share with you a true story how I found peace, that being thankful brings.
