Don’t Waste Another Day
From that time Jesus began to preach, [a]crying out, Repent ([b]change your mind for the better, heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
─ Matthew 4:17 AMPC
Dr. Caroline Leaf says this in her book Switch On Your Brain, “As we think, we change the physical nature of our brain. As we consciously direct our thinking, we can wire out toxic patterns of thinking and replace them with healthy thoughts.”
How many days have you wasted believing things God didn’t say? Maybe you were not a believer in Christ and didn’t know the truth of His Word, or maybe past hurts made it difficult for you to see God’s unconditional love for you clearly.
Don’t waste another day believing negative things about yourself. It’s important to see yourself as God does. He has a lot to say about you in His Word.
