A few weeks ago, I was handed the book Battlefield of the Mind to read. It's a devotional with two-paged entries for easier reading.
Well, I got hooked fast because it appears Joyce Meyer was looking in my house when she wrote it.
She writes about negative thoughts.
You know the ones . . . My story stinks, I'll never get published, Who am I kidding anyways? How will I ever find the time to write? . . . Everyone has their own customized list. Sometimes it's buried beneath pages of a manuscript but sooner or later--it'll rise to the top.
But Joyce also shares how to kill off those negative thoughts by replacing them with some positive ones. The ones that tell you everything will be okay, or you have a talent and with hard work might achieve some of those goals.
Are you letting your negative thoughts rise to the top today?
I'm telling myself some news ones lately. . . like working won't interfere with my writing goals. I'm burying my list of negative thoughts deep in the backyard.
Just don't hand me a shovel.
