Power Thoughts by Joyce Meyer

It has been 15 years since Meyer wrote her book, Battlefield of the Mind.  It was time for an update.
Meyer again speaks to the power of our thoughts.  She gives 12 power thoughts that she thinks will help us get in line with God's Word.  She suggests that we concentrate on one power thought a week, cementing the truth into our thinking. 
The power thoughts are positive and based on Scripture.  They include, "God loves me unconditionally," "I trust God completely; there is no need to worry," and the final "I put God first in my life."  At the end of each power thought chapter are several biblical verses that can be memorized.  She also includes several thoughtful questions in chapter with room for journaling.
Paul tells us to renew our minds.  Meyer has given us a way to train our brains to trust in God, believing what He says, and think thoughts based on His Word.
I am glad that Meyer has matured over the years so that there is only a very slight reference to the idea of confessing wealth. 
This is a good resource for those who make the choice to discipline themselves and renew their thoughts.
