1) I lose my life to gain Life.
I love that when I surrender my life entirely to Christ, I gain real, true life in Him.
2) Strength through weakness.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
3) When I give in to my intrusive thoughts, they lose their power over me.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy’s premise is a simple one, and though it seems backward, it works. My life is proof.
