Consider this quote by Jenneth Graser from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“Part of the process of renewing our minds is by declaring or affirming truth over ourselves to shift the negative thought patterns we have, often which, we are not even aware of. It is truly a process of transformation – ‘be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’ (Roman 12:2)…

I encourage you to write out your own  list of affirmations and declarations and say these over your life and situation, knowing that as you say them regularly, you are renewing your mind. Use the bible as a foundation for your declarations. As we grow in this transforming process, I believe we will experience a shift in our thinking patterns and enter into greater freedom as a result!”
