7 Things the Bible Says About Controlling Your Thoughts.


Our thoughts influence everything thing we do.  It is the single most thing that you can control that will impact your spiritual growth, wellness, emotions, personal development, and success in life.  This is so important that you can find Biblical passages that speak of thoughts.  Psychology has done extensive research on the part our thoughts have on our actions and our feelings.  I want to encourage you to read through these scriptures and pick one or two you could journal about this week.
