When it comes to negative thoughts and self-talk, we have to fight back against those things.
Steven Furdick’s book, Crash the Chatterbox may be a good resource if you struggle with this type of negativity.
Furdick wrote the book to help people understand how they can battle the negative thoughts and lies filling their heads and hearts and instead turn to God promises and truth.
I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to others if they will work through the questions in the back.
There are a several statements that stood out to me:
…it’s not just what this chatter says that makes it dangerous. It’s what it keeps us from hearing.
…mistakes are inevitable but disrespect is inexcusable. And ingratitude is more than a misdemeanor.
…gratitude allows us to disconnect discouragement at the power source by choosing to call God good in spite of our situation.
