Chapter 6 - "Rumination and Renewal"
Sinful thoughts come from your sinful heart (Jeremiah 17:9) (Matthew 15:18-20)
Sinful thoughts also come from the devil (John 8:44)
Declare war and become a thought warrior! (Romans 12:2)
Change the way you think:
1. Recognize the source.
2. Reject the lies.
3. Replace with Scripture.
Ruminate over Scripture
"Biblical meditation" - Review Scripture repeatedly (Joshua 1:8) (Psalm 1:2)
"Ruminate/meditate" on Scripture to:
1. Get the true meaning out of it!
2. Cut a new and better neural pathway/rut in your brain!
3. Repetition is the reason for ruts.
Meditation eventually leads to automaticity.
Part 3 - "The Reframe Principle"
Reframe Your Mind, Restore Your Perspective
Chapter 7 - "Lenses and Flares"
Cognitive bias - A pattern of deviating from reality.
Cognitive reframing - Taking control of how we perceive things.
Review - 3 tools for changing your thinking:
1. The Replacement Principle

2. The Rewire Principle
Rewire brain, renew mind
3. The Reframe Principle
Regrame mind, restore perspective
