Truths to live by

My heart and mind has been focused on this "mind fasting" as I prepared to leave for the She Speaks conference. Today I leave and I I am ready!! Satan has been hitting me with a lot of "untruth"-thoughts that bring me down but I have been faithful to counteract them before they have a chance to take hold. It truly is a battle!! But I awoke this morning with a sense of peace and calm. I am ready "to arrive" at this conference and at what He has prepared for me...even for me to become.

As I have explored this concept of mind fasting, God has been planting plenty around me related just to this subject to keep me focused and to help me grow. As I posted a few blogs back, Jennifer Rothschild has written a book "Self Talk, Soul Talk" and so I picked it up and started to read it over the last couple of days. Before doing this, I had planned to post on my next blog the "truths" we find in scripture that we can live be. Well, Jennifer has done this already!! She has a blog (http://www.selftalksoultalk.com/) to go along with her book and on her blog she had the following "truths to live by". So I leave you her work to mediate on while I'm gone. I know I am taking these with me and meditating on them myself. Enjoy this and then stop by and visit Jennifer's blog!

Here’s some truth to plant within your heart:
