“Key to loving God with all our mind is truly experiencing His love for us. On our own power, we cannot change the way we think, but when we draw near to God and spend time getting to know Him by getting to know His Word, He uses the truths there to transform how we think. When we feel weak or overwhelmed by life, He can use Scriptures to give us strength. He can use the truths we find in His Word to fortify us to go on.”
“When we hold our thoughts up against God’s standards of what is true and what is real, we can recognize and, with His help, learn to release many of our negative emotions, damaging thoughts, and destructive attitudes.”
“God does indeed enable us to live according to His instruction to focus on today. With Him, you and I can successfully climb the mountain of today, leaving the mountain range of tomorrows to tomorrow. And the peace that comes with knowing that we are following God’s guidance day by day, moment by moment, frees us to better love God with all our mind.”

“On our own power, we cannot change the way we think, but when we draw near to God and spend time getting to know Him by getting to know His Word, He uses the truths there to transform how we think.“ This is a great truth! For the first 30 years of my life as a born again believer I did not read the Bible every day and I failed to grow in my relationship with the Lord. Now I spend time in the morning in the Scriptures learning who He is and loving, trusting, obeying Him more and more! Hebrews 4:12
How wonderful that you spend that time with Him. God promises that those who seek Him will find Him.
Kim, we first met you at Community Baptist, South Bend, IN years ago.
We were glad you were in our Mission’s conference at Faith 2 years ago here in Greenville. A friend at church told me about your blog. I have appreciated it. The book you mentioned, LOVING GOD WITH ALL YOUR MIND has been a
Favorite of mine since the fall of 2000. I’ve read it many times since then. I so like that she backed her chapters up with lots of scripture. God used it to give me victory over worry and fear, to think right and finally experience “the peace that passes understanding.” I just hope that any of your readers who haven’t read it will. Thanks for your book reviews this month.
Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad these posts have been a blessing to you.
Favorite author. Favorite book.
