      Hahahahaha that is so awesome Teresa! I’m so glad that the verses in the Bible are so universal and that other girls also find such anchoring truth and comfort in them! x

  6. Collene says:

    Beautifully written and inspiring post! This is an area of struggle for me. I have been trying to speak affirmations when I look at myself in the mirror. Reminding myself that I am God’s child and He is pleased with me. 😊

    • Michelle Ling says:

  8. Summer says:

    I think #2 is so key! We’re living in such oppressive times and if we’re not intimately knowing the Word of God our focus will always be off-center. We’ve been trying to help our kids with this, which is pretty much what discipling is all about, ha!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Thanks Summer! Hahaha I love that you have been trying to help your kids with this! It’s amazing that you are starting to help them while they are so young! x

  9. Michelle,
    Negative thoughts are so powerful and can really derail the work God has for us. Thanks for sharing such truth to help us stay focused on Jesus!

  10. Brandi says:

    Michelle, these are great ways to take our thoughts captive. Satan wants nothing more than to plant lies and false things appearing real, into our mind. I love suggestion #4 to bring our thoughts to the cross. There is not better place we could go.

  11. DONNA MILLER says:

    This is so good Michelle! God has really helped me with my words by teaching me to capture my thoughts and guard my heart. When I didn’t let Him work on my thoughts and my heart, it was like a constant battle to put a gate over my words.

    • Michelle Ling says:

      I definitely relate Donna! He is the best goalie for stopping any negative thoughts from taking our minds captive! x

  12. Elizabeth says:

    Great message on our thoughts. We need to watch our thoughts. Thank you for a great message

  13. Jessie says:

    Oh this spoke to me on so many levels! I love how you use God’s Word to replace lies I have grown to believe about myself!

  14. Boma says:

    This is so encouraging, Michelle! It all begins and mostly happens in the mind. Whatever victories we’re seeking, we must first claim in our minds, for as the Scripture says, as a man thinks, so is he.
    And Amen to your prayer at the end of the post. Thanks for sharing. Many blessings to you!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Thanks Boma! It’s always so good to look to the cross and remember that He died to win a battle! x

  15. Kayla Clyde says:

    What a great post! I love how focused you are on the Bible and letting God shape our thoughts instead of our own feelings and the world.

  16. I loved this!! Thank you so much for the tips on how to readjust my thinking 🙂

  17. Karen says:

    It is so easy to allow the negative thoughts to roam free in our minds! Taking them captive and countering them with Bible promises is such a powerful way to overcome negative thoughts and capture them.

    • Michelle Ling says:

      It really is, isn’t it?! But I’m so glad that He sent His Word down for us so that we can always remember who He is in the moments that we keep forgetting! x

  18. This is excellent! This topic is near and dear to my hearts as well and I talk a lot about on my blog. It’s so hard as women because we tend to compare ourselves and feel less-than. But God is the one who should tell us who we are. Thanks for posting!
