Today, I completed the I Love America 5K. Also, Gwen completed the Liberty 1 Mile Fun Run, which was her first charity race. Both races were sponsored by Whitesburg Christian Academy, in Huntsville, Alabama.
I was so proud of Gwen. Completing your first charity race can be a bit nerve racking. There a lot of things happening at the same time and it’s all brand new to you. However, Gwen didn’t seem nervous at all, actually she took off like a pro.
She also finished like a pro. Way to go Gwen!
Joyce Meyer wrote, “Battlefield of the Mind” to teach how changing our thinking habits can change our life. Thoughts lead to actions.
If we have negative thoughts we will have a negative life. However, if we have positive thoughts we will have a positive life.
We should pay attention to our thoughts and think about what we are thinking. We should also spend time discovering the root cause of our negative thoughts.
Sings of a negative or out of control mind:
- Your mind is always busy
- Your mind is always wandering
- You mind is frequently confused
- Your mind is full of doubts
- Your mind is anxious or worried
- Your mind is full of judgmental or critical thoughts
Strategies to improve thinking patterns and control the mind:
- Think positive thoughts
- Spend time praising God
- Ask for help
- Meditate on God’s word
- Encourage those around you
- Be thankful
- Do things for others to show your appreciation
There are a few theological points in the book that I don’t agree with; however, the book is excellent. I would recommend this book, even if you don’t like some of the things Joyce Meyer teaches.
