You may think...
A statement of encouragment from a friend. We all struggle at times and some of us may feel we cannot change the way we think; yet there is hope and fortunately for us this hope it not found in ourself. Our hope comes from Jesus. He knows that our thinking does not change overnight and is there to help us. If we ask Him to help us He will teach us the right way to think through the reading of His word and the help of the Holy Spirit.
