keeping a positive attitude

Standard

Do you find it difficult to maintain a positive attitude at all times? 

maintaining a positive attitude even when everything seems crazy, not fair, horrible and just plain ridicilous is very hard when we try and take care of situations on our own.  Our feelings will lead us down the wrong path most of the time.  Here is a great program on how to stay positive. 

Today’s broadcast guest John C. Maxwell discusses how keeping a positive outlook and attitude will impact you. Listen now http://bit.ly/1jmMOlV

Why?

Standard
some of you might remember Chonda Pierce the christian comedian that came to Harmony Hill Baptist church a while back.. i had been reading shared posts and praying for her and her husband.  But today I read this and it really stopped me in my tracks.  For a lady who brings the world laughter.. Laughter without profanity and vulgurness.. Why would God allow her to go through so much pain..?? tomorrow is not promised.  Chonda is a tough woman of God but i can’t imagine the things going on in her head and heart.  Please join me in prayer for her..
 
 
David has been on the brink most all night. What started as a rush to ER a few days ago with severe back pain has resulted in heart attack, blood clots, ventilators, tubes and bells and whistles to keep him alive. Yet, at this very moment he rest peacefully sedated and I hold his hand wondering what he feels, hears…is he dreaming? We’re going to get an RV and travel the country, or build a boat. There’s an orchard to watch grow, fish to catch and stories still left to tell. I whisper, “I love you. Don’t you leave me.” while doctors and nurses scurry about…”please stay with me. The kids are here. We’re going to meet our grand kids in just a few days.” (Oh God, if you’re waiting for just the right time to reveal your Glory – I’m thinking this would be a great time as any!) The nurse just said that several of the Drs will be in very shortly because we have a tough discussion to have. What?Just yesterday it was deciding if we could afford Kraft Mac and Cheese or stick with Cost-Cutters brand. Just yesterday we were contemplating braces for Chera or letting Zach play soccer. Just the other day we were flirting at the lockers in the hall between History and Speech class. We used to chuckle at the funny questions: paper or plastic? Two-ply or quilted? Lately, I thought our toughest heaviest decisions we would ever have to make was about rehab, depression medication or separation. It seems the decisions and discussions really can get worse. One thing I know – in all my discussions I have never, ever ever had to “decide” if I love him or not. He’s been my best friend since I was 17 years old. I have loved my partner, my lover, my beloved husband for a very long time. And I plan to love him best for many years to come. Please continue to pray for David.

the snares of the devil

Standard

2 Timothy 2:24-26

New King James Version (NKJV)

24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

 

1 Timothy 3:7

New King James Version (NKJV)

Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

The bible clearly warns us of the devil and his his snares… When a person becomes a Christian, he usually undergoes some radical life changes, especially if he has had an immoral background.  Through the first steps of spiritual growth and self-denial, he gets rid of the large, obvious sins.  But sad to say, many believers stop there.  They don’t go on to eliminate the little sins that clutter the landscape of their lives. 

1 Peter 5:8

New King James Version (NKJV)

Be sober, be vigilant; because[a] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Who better than Peter would know about the prowlings of Satan!  Several times Jesus warned Peter that Satan was after him, but he failed to heed the warning.  Too many Christians have “gone to sleep,” opening the way for Satan to work. 

Romans 8:37-39

New King James Version (NKJV)

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Men, What kind of Bird are you?

Men.. what kind of bird are you? Canaries sit around singing (talking) all day about what they’re fixing to do but the truth is they usually don’t do anything to fix it, they will just stay in the same cage they have always been in. Buzzards sit around squaking (complaining) all day. Nothing is ever right, and they’re simply feasting off the hard work of others. Peacocks just wanna look good, it’s all about them. Even if their strutting around makes others look bad they don’t care because they are ego-maniacs. Eagles, you can’t cage them, they soar above the rest, they’re not influenced by the world, they don’t strut around trying to impress others by fluffing feathers. They know who they are and if they don’t, soon wil. They lead by example to ALL others. What kind of bird are you? for more info on this topic and more go to kswp.org and request it.. ~~Jenn ( good stuff right here)
