Hello to all my awesome Online Bible Study Sisters! It’s Linda Kuhar here again teaching Chapter 7 Overcoming Your Giants. All I can say is I’ve highlighted just about every line in the entire chapter. It’s that incredible!! But before we dive in the book study, let’s soak ourselves in the word of God to prepare our hearts for a life-changing week. This week’s reflections verse is…
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.
As many of you know, I’m a Christian Life Coach so guess what that means? I like to challenge you from time to time. So lets roll up our sleeves and let’s get busy this week in God’s truth.
- First, let’s pray and ask God to examine our hearts and minds as we mediate on this verse.
- Next, grab your journal and write out Philippians 4:8.
- After reading quietly over this verse several times, write down anything that you are putting in your mind that is not true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable or worthy of praise.
- Finally, ask God to help you refocus your mind on things excellent and worthy of praise.
Sisters, I wish I could tell you the above exercise is the “magic” formula to a brand new mindset, but it’s not a one time thing, it’s a life long change that takes hard consistent work. For me personally, I struggle every day with a negative mindset, however when I’m willing to face my giants and make a change, it is readily available to me. It just requires an attitude of determination and faith to know that God has my back.
