Christianity that fails to produce fire in your soul probably is something less that the real deal. Some people are afraid of blind faith, but I find bland faith far more frightening. Bland faith is powerless. Living faith opens eyes, transforms lives, & sets people gloriously free.
Over-planning quenches the Holy Spirit by eliminating the need for His direct leadership. Asking for and receiving forgiveness from God and from other people is much more powerful than trying to forgive yourself.
Unhappiness is a warning that you’re misusing your mind–an opportunity to readjust your thinking to produce peace and fulfillment. For emotional healing, learning and applying new coping skills is much more effective than merely taking pills. Everybody alive is shaping the future. Shape yours well!
Too many people want filtered water and unfiltered thoughts, but what you drink with your mind can be more harmful than any water. You got where you are by the roads you took. Do you like your destination or is it time to reroute?
Farm your mind; raise a crop of positive, uplifting, peaceful, and encouraging thoughts. Then harvest them daily.
It’s a dangerous thing to delegate your relationship with God to a pastor, a priest, or anyone else. When we make anything human “supreme” in our lives, we step outside of the kingdom of God where God alone is supreme.
