Everyone loves to win, but not everyone has the mentality of a winner. Positive thinking is a simple yet godly truth to winning in life.
Some people will always disagree with your ideas, but does that mean you should give up on them? Absolutely not. Never give up on the ideas and dreams God has given you.
It is heartbreaking to hear about the tragedy that took place today at the Boston Marathon. My prayers, as well as the prayers of my staff and the congregation at Living Word, are for the peace of God to flood the lives of everyone affected in any way by the horrific acts that took place.
I encourage all of us to set aside any fears or doubts and simply pray for the healing and recovery of those impacted and justice for those responsible. Know this: that no matter the situation, God is still good. God’s character has not changed, nor should our perspective of Him change because of evil actions that target our freedom and work to compromise our liberties.
Please join with me in praying this prayer for our nation as well as the families affected by today’s events:
“Heavenly Father, we need you right now. May Your peace and grace extend to the families who have lost a loved one. May Your healing power strengthen the physical bodies of those who have been hurt. May You come into this situation and minister to those who need your touch. Guide our leaders. May they know how to proceed in dealing with the evil behind this attack. May your light shine in this dark area. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can or [you] can’t, you’re right.” What about you? Are your thoughts holding you back from fulfilling your dreams or are they pushing you to pursue them?
Just because you have an opinion doesn’t mean that you should always share it. If you want to make life easier for yourself, learn when to keep quiet.
The word “lord” as it’s used in Jesus’ day is something that was awarded by right of conquest. A lord remained a lord only as long as he remained undefeated on the battlefield. Jesus is Lord because he spoiled powers and principalities, made a show of them openly, and triumphed over them. He is Lord and He is master because He won it on the field of battle.
