Review this week's message.

Key Scriptures

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Philippians 4:8 NLT

I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
Psalm 119:15-16 NIV

... I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.
Psalm 143:5 NIV

God, we need Your help. It’s not easy changing the way we think, and we can’t do it without Your power. Holy Spirit, give us the strength to speak God’s Word to the lies and negative thinking in our brains. Jesus, thank You for Your grace that heals and restores us as we seek You. In Your name, amen!

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.

  • Ask a close friend or family member to help you identify lies you might be repeating in your brain.
