Dwell On These Things

John Stange

What does it look like to live out Philippians 4:8? "Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on these things." Talk to yourself like God talks to you! In Dwell on These Things, pastor and author John Stange shows how, instead of living at the mercy of whatever thought pops into your mind, you can choose to

🙏 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

There’s no need to remain stuck thinking unhelpful thoughts. Learn how you can fill your mind with encouraging, life-enriching truths through a gospel-saturated, thirty-one-day challenge that can help you replace a destructive mindset with a positive, empowering, and godly one.
