    Hi Fred,
    I think your discussion is a good start. Can you think of any scriptures that you might use as a foil to bring out your points? Perhaps Paul’s “thorn of the flesh”, David & Goliath, Daniel, Nehemiah. How might positive thinking or negative thinking affected their journeys? How does forgiveness fit in? How might the call to be saved be affected?

    Also do you think there is anything in “My ways are higher ways, my thoughts are higher thoughts” from Isaiah.

    I took a weekend seminar called the LandMark Forum and at the end of the weekend there is a big conclusion about life and what we “place meaning on”, events that happen to us, things we do, and especially the things we say to ourselves, such as “I am unloveable” or “I’m not worth it” or “I don’t need you”…

    • I am a little familiar with landmark, and that’s in the right direction. Philippians 4:8 comes to mind:

      Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,
      whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent
      or praiseworthy—think about such things.

      It’s hard to not be positive as a fruit of this activity 🙂
