Understanding My Behaviors:

-The thoughts that I deeply believe determine how I feel about and behave in situations I encounter.
 
-The linkage between thoughts, emotions and behavior operates like a chain reaction.
 
-I can change my thinking with the help of the Holy Spirit, God’s Word, and the affirmation from those in the body of Christ, which results in changed behaviors. Romans 12:1-2
 
-I constantly react as if situations cause feelings and as though the situation caused an emotion and behavior.
 

Which statement is true:
