Transforming Your Thought Life: Christian Meditation in Focus
Your Mind Is Under Attack. Thousands of thoughts fly through our minds every day, many of them negative. And Satan knows how susceptible we are to these negative thoughts that leave us frustrated and feeling defeated. However, the time-honored practice of Christian meditation can help us find victory in these spiritual battles. Transforming Your Thought Life offers guided meditations and personal examples that will help you train your mind to stay grounded in God's Word. Each chapter examines a particular kind of negative thought pattern and provides key Bible verses and prayers for standing strong against it. Day by day, as you hide God's Word in your heart and mind, you will move closer to the heart and mind of God.
Changing the way we think so that we can live a more joyful and victorious life sounds great, but it seems daunting. In Transforming Your Thought Life, Sarah Geringer doesn't just tell us what it looks like to experience change through Christian meditation. She shows us how to change the way we think... every step of the way.
