I've never done this, and didn't get all of the blogs read from last week, so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to answer the questions in the back of the chapter. It's hard to answer some of them, and I'm uncomfortable writing the things I say to myself that are not based on the truth. I grew up with low self esteem, and even as an adult, I've struggled with it, even after becoming a Christian. I love God, and know he loves me and accepts and forgives me moment to moment.
One of the things I marked in the book, from page 29 was, "You can't remove those hurtful thoughts, words, and memories, but by the power of God, you can drain them of their potential control over you."
I also want to share that I have been drinking a variety of kinds of tea lately, and have been making it at work sometimes, when at lunch. While I was reading the first chapter, I was drinking Earl Grey tea, as I was reading page 15, where Jennifer said, "Some things in life are only truly discovered through pondering, prayer, and a steaming cup of Earl Grey." Earl Grey, usually decaf, is my favorite tea, and I smiled as I looked at the tag on my tea bag.
God bless you through this study!
