John believes you can change your life by changing the messages that enter your mind! Learn to see yourself through God's eyes by spending thirty-one days feeding your heart a new, biblical message of encouragement in his book “Dwell on These Things.”
Every day, our hearts and minds fill with messages—about ourselves, the world, and God—that we replay again and again. Some of these messages are accurate and helpful. Others run counter to truths that God wants us to understand and embrace.
Thankfully, you don’t have to live at the mercy of whatever thought pops into your mind. In fact, you can choose exactly which messages you wish to repeat and believe.
Replace feelings of discouragement with a sense of God’s goodness.
Practice seeing yourself in the loving way God sees you.
Exchange negative self-talk for positive biblical messages.
Learn to face the day with hope in your heart.
