Make Up Your Mind
AS WE THINK, SO ARE WE . . .
Every day we fight battle after battle in our mind―many times unaware of the real fight at hand and wind up defeated, as if we cannot win the battle of our own mind. It’s our own mind, but we can struggle to make it up. Negative mindsets limit our existence by keeping us bound in habits and attitudes unless we know how to break free of them.
Our mindsets matter. Sadly, when people operate their lives caving to unhealthy mindsets, they live defeated lives lacking joy and peace stemming from negative thought patterns.
In Make Up Your Mind, the reader will learn about the root behind common mental battles, focus in on ten key negative mindsets and learn how to overcome them using Scripture and real-life solutions as we adopt the mind of Christ.
