Thought Conditioners

I remember getting a little booklet when I was in my teenage years called 'Thought Conditioners' by Norman Vincent Peale. Each 'conditioner' was a verse from the Bible which was to settle your mind and set it on things above. It was accompanied by a little exposition by Dr Peale. To be truthful there was a time in my life when learning off these verses each day was a great help to me particularly when I was facing a difficulty of some kind. I had been literally trying to 'lean on my own understanding' and one verse encouraged me to 'trust in the Lord with all my heart'. I would encourage anyone who feels inclined to copy and paste these verses onto a document then learn one one each day.As always there is always a great satisfaction when memorising a piece of Scripture and often the Holy Spirit will bring it back to us when we are in need of it. I have included 12 verses here and the remainder of the 40 can be found on the first two comments.Peace and Grace Ak.
