Just Thinking (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 338)

just-thinking

Philippians 4:8 (NLT)
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

In life, we are always involved in a battle. Sometimes, it is a physical one — a real war between good people and bad people. Other times, it is an emotional battle, a spiritual battle, a mental battle. We have to fight to control ourselves, against our vices, our impulses, and our worst selves. We are engaged in a battle to discipline our behaviors, to focus on things that matter, and to think about positive and good things. In a way, we have to fight to be better, to do good, and to think positively because it’s always easier to do the opposite. Read more…

The Deep Well (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 187)

The Deep Well

Matthew 5:3 (NLT)
God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Everyone wants to be happy.

Stop Negative Self-Talk (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 98)

Stop Negative Self-Talk

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #7)

“Champions learn how to develop empowering beliefs and invest a substantial amount of time solidifying those beliefs, mostly through their own self-talk.”
— Steve Siebold

What you say to yourself is what you ultimately believe. What you believe is what you will eventually do. And what you do is how people will judge you. Most people don’t realize that as we go through each day, our minds are constantly thinking about our thoughts and forming perspectives about situations we find ourselves in. What we tell ourselves about each situation — whether negative or positive — is how we perceive it.  Read more…

Create a Daily Regimen (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 59)

Create a Daily Regimen

“For me, cracking the code on flossing was to put the floss right by the toothbrush, and to commit to myself that I would floss one tooth — only one tooth — every time after I brushed.”
— B.J. Fogg

The people who are the most productive, and in turn, the most successful, are those who have developed good habits and created a daily regimen to live by. This is a crucial point to recognize especially for young indomitables like I once was. Having good habits and developing a daily regimen can help you become stable and consistent each day of the week. No matter how you feel or what you have to do, a daily regimen will regulate you to do what is regular, but necessary. Read more…

Identify Positive Thoughts (Effective Thinking #2)

effectivethinking2

We often hear the phrase “think positively.” Positive thinking is so much more than a cliche; it’s a choice. In order to overcome negative thoughts, we must not only identify them, but we must replace them with positive thoughts. It’s not enough to tell ourselves to “stop thinking negatively.” We have to develop an outlet by which every negative thought is quickly pushed away and replaced with a positive thought. If we don’t keep positive thoughts flowing through our minds, we leave the space open for negative thoughts to come in and take up residence. Read more…

Christ Will Give You Rest

Christ Will Give You Rest

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, NIV).

We live in a world that is simply not at peace. With war, violence, crime, and injustices carried out every single day, it can be easy to worry about the safety of our lives and the lives of those we love. If the problems of the world were not enough, the challenges we face individually on a daily basis can cause us to become anxious and desperate for rest and tranquility. Read more…
