Are your thoughts out of control--just like your life? Do you long to break free from the spiral of destructive thinking? If so, God's truth can become your battle plan to win the war in your mind
In this twelve-lesson workbook, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel reveals that our lives are always moving in the direction of our strongest thoughts. What we think shapes who we are. Both the Bible and modern science provide evidence that this is true.
For example, in Philippians 4:8-9, the apostle Paul writes, "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." In these three sentences, Paul moves from thought ("think about such things") to action ("put it into practice") to experience ("the God of peace will be with you").
In recent years, an entire discipline of modern psychology has developed called cognitive behavioral therapy. This breakthrough teaching reveals that many problems, from eating disorders to relational challenges, addictions, and even some forms of depression and anxiety, are rooted in faulty and negative patterns of thinking. Treating those problems begins with changing that thinking. When the Bible and modern psychology say the same thing, we should all pay attention
In this workbook, Craig goes deeper into the principles outlined in his book to reveal the strategies he has discovered will change your mind and your life for the long-term. Each lesson includes biblical exploration, reflection and application questions, and practical exercises to help you determine any destructive thought patterns that have and eliminate them from your life.
God has something better for your life than your old ways of thinking. It's time to change your mind so God can change your life.
