Consider your THOUGHTS, because they become WORDS. Consider your WORDS, because they become ACTIONS. Consider your ACTIONS because they become HABITS. Consider your HABITS because they determine your CHARACTER. And your CHARACTER shapes your DESTINY. – Bryan Burk


“Scriptures were not given to us for INFORMATION, they were given to us for TRANSFORMATION.” – D.L. Moody



Romans 12:2

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.



We must change our patterns of thinking before we can transform our lives.


SLIDE 03 – 04

(Talk about Transformers, show the slide of Semi-truck, then the Slide of Optimus Prime)


Learning to see ourselves the way God sees us, not as a beat up broken-down vehicle, but transformed into the Mighty Man and Woman of God, He created us to be.


Changing our thinking.


There are 3 Things that TRANSFORM our Pattern of Thinking:




SLIDE 05 – 06

Proverbs 3:5,6

TRUST in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.


Psalms 7:1

O Lord my God, in you I put my TRUST;


Psalms 16:1

Preserve me, o God, for in you I put my TRUST.



  • Thankfulness


SLIDE 07 – 09

1 Thess. 5:18

In EVERYTHING give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.


1 Chron. 16:34

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.


Psalms 103:1,2

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His Holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.





SLIDE 10 – 11

John 8:32

And you shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall make you free.


Psalms 25:5

Lead me in Your TRUTH and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On you I wait all the day.
