This week we will begin our lesson series, “Telling Yourself the Truth,” based on the best selling book by William Backus and Marie Chapian. I encourage you to remain committed to your LifeGroup and pray that the Lord will open your eyes to the lies the devil has implanted in your mind. You can claim biblical victory over your depression, anxiety, fear, anger, and other emotions that plague your mental health.

Backus and Chapian agree that “There’s something in all of our lives we’d like to change. Nobody’s life circumstances are perfect. But what are we telling ourselves about these circumstances?”[1] What we tell ourselves about our circumstances dictate how we react to them. This self-talk determines our outlook.

Thank you for taking a moment to view this week’s LifeGroup lesson. We encourage you to open and print this study to enrich your time of fellowship, discussion, and prayer. Invite someone to your LifeGroup today! Please leave a comment and share your experience. Have a blessed week.

Contact Pastor DeSpain if you have any questions.
