Thursday Tips: Ammo

I was recently asked by a friend for some of my go-to verses when it comes to trusting truth rather than our ever-changing feelings. It’s a question I’m asked often so I determined to write a post on the very topic.

This Thursday, my prayer is that you will develop your own list of well-known verses for the road ahead. But for now, I present to you my own list of ammunition for taking thoughts captive and staying my mind on what I know to be true

verses
