Friday’s Assignments

Discussion for today:

1. From yesterday’s blog hop, what was a blog that you particularly enjoyed? Why?
2. Write out Philippians 4:6-9. What specifically does this passage give us that can help with negative inside chatter? (there is more than one answer)
3. Answer the 3 questions Lysa asks in the section “Three Questions.” (p. 144-147 in theUnglued book.)

Hopefully by continuing to apply God’s Word and this Unglued wisdom, we can put that negative inside chatter where it belongs and call it for what it really is.
