We hate what we fear — or at least have very strong feelings of hostility toward that which we fear. So my fear of men has lots of hostility in it. Stop this!! I hereby take a vow that between now and January 1, 1972, I will not indulge in anymore negative analyzing. I may not have any control over my feelings but I can certainly decide what thoughts I’m going to entertain. Each day for the rest of this month I’m going to write a positive thought in this book.

Trust the Holy Spirit.
