How Note Cards Can Help
Changing one’s thoughts is vital in eating disorder recovery. Just look at the promise in Rom. 12:2, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Notice the word transformed. That’s a powerful word. But being transformed is within your reach if you renew your mind, if you reject the lies of the enemy and the eating disorder voice and replace them with the truth. By changing your thoughts, you can also positively impact your emotions and change your behaviors. Imagine the significant progress you can make if you cling to truthful, positive, and healthy thoughts.
Use these note cards as a tool to support your recovery efforts and then experience the freedom truth can bring. “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
About the Author: Laurie Glass
Renewing the mind was one of the keys to Laurie’s eating disorder recovery. After she asked the Lord to steer her recovery, he led her to renew her mind. So she searched for Bible verses and quotes to write on note cards. She didn’t trust herself to recall the truth and positive statements in the moment she needed them, so she kept her note cards handy – some in her purse, some taped around her full length mirror. Note cards were a vital tool in Laurie’s recovery.
The eating disorder recovery quotes and Bible verses on these note cards are from Laurie’s other published works, including the Christian Eating Disorder Recovery Course, and her books, Journey to Freedom from Eating Disorders and Inspiration for Eating Disorder Recovery. The quotes are also taken from the many encouraging and inspirational messages she’s shared with others over the years.
