Miles did not want to be a negative and bitter person as the result of an unwanted divorce after 25 years of marriage. She began to talk with Jesus. She realized she could not change her circumstances but could control her thoughts through the power of the Holy Spirit. It changed her life.
I was impressed with the lessons she shares. She emphasizes being aware of our thoughts, something many ignore. She writes about strongholds of negative thinking and how to combat them. She offers great strategies to help us put our faith in control of our mind. She reminds us we need to be alert to the reality of spiritual warfare too.
This process was not easy for her yet she knew she had the tools from God. She developed the strategy she shares with us. She includes great questions to ask and verses to memorize to replace negative thoughts. She suggests reading this book with a journal and I think that is a great idea.
I highly recommend this book to those who want to take control of their negative thoughts. It will mean work but God has provided the tools and Miles adds a great strategy. For those ready to intentionally change their thought patterns, this book is a wonderful resource.
