We talked a little about the mind the last two days.
I struggle with a negative mind and I have to pray often to get my thoughts in the right place. I have scriptures written out on index cards that are good ones to read to keep the mind in the right place.
Here is some homework for you. This is exercise for the mind and soul. Look up the verses below. You can put them on index cards or in a notebook, tape them on your mirror or somewhere in your house to remind you who you are in Christ.
Here is the link to an online bible resource.

These are just a few. I listed about a third of what I have on index cards. I am reading through them again to keep my mind stayed on Him.
I also suggest reading through Rom 8. It is of course what we are refering to through this whole month with walking after the Spirit. It is one of those powerful chapters that really can inpact your thinking.
Remember to get in daily physical exercise too. Excercise helps to make the body feel good but also helps to elevate mood. I used to have problems with depression and one thing that I always was told was diet and excercise makes a difference.
