Transforming Your Thought Life: Christian Meditation in Focus By Sarah Geringer

This book gets a 10 star rating from me!  It is one you will not only give a permanent place on your book shelf, but, take notes, study and read over and over! It is definitely a keeper in my library! Meditation on Scripture is a much neglected discipline in most Christian’s lives.  Probably because many of us do not know where to start or how to do it.

It is easy to read and study.  I am not a big one for personal experiences by an author.  There are times it seems to actually take away from what they are trying to share.  Not so with Ms. Geringer!  She shares from the heart and often on a very personal level.  Her transparency helps the reader to honestly evaluate not only their thoughts but the source of them. Each chapter deals with the different thoughts one might have: guilty, negative, fearful, etc.  But this is only the beginning. There are 17 in all.  Many you may have never considered.

That’s what this book is all about, how get control of your thought life by meditating on scripture.  The author teaches you how to turn those thoughts into meditation on God’s Word.   She doesn’t’ leave you hanging there. For each of the categories she gives you a clear plan for conquering and transforming your mind by turning to Bible verses that apply these specifically to these challenges. There are suggested scriptures and at the end of each chapter there are questions to reflect on and a prayer.  Trust me! This is a life changing book!
