If preachers were doers…

Hello everyone, I have been writing. It is time to read. I want to learn.

Let’s discuss the topic, IF PREACHERS WERE DOERS…

I believe that everyone reading this would have instructed or corrected somebody at one point or the other. It might be come in form of a social media post, a teacher to a student, a parent to a child, or a spiritual leader to a follower.
Whichever way, we are preachers.

Now imagine if we are all doers of the good things we preach in words and actions…

Two Distinct Ways: Which to Choose?

two distinct ways

Bible Text=> Matthew 7:13-14

“Broad is the way that leads to destruction”.
This way is broad because it accommodates anything—loads of sin, little weights! It’s pathetic that many walk in this way, even the so-called Christians. They allow “little sins” to take hold of their lives.

A guest post: Dealing with thinking syndrome

A guy worked on the railways. One night after all his fellow workers had gone home, he accidentally locked himself in a refrigerated carriage. Worried that the temperature was below freezing, he yelled for help, but to no avail. The more he thought about his situation the colder he felt, until eventually he started shivering uncontrollably.

Convinced he was dying, he picked his pen and wrote a letter to his family outlining and explaining what had happened that night.
The next morning, his co-workers arrived the railway station and got set for work. They later found the guy’s body. An autopsy revealed that he had indeed frozen to death. But the investigators discovered something puzzling. The carriage in which he was trapped was out of order and had been disconnected from electricity that night. The night he froze to death the temperature in the boxcar was 16.1, just below room temperature (and even below the normal human body temperature).

But what happened?

He froze to death because he expected to die, he lost the battle in his mind.
Syndrome is a medical condition that consists of a particular set of problems. Relating this with thinking, it has to do with an illness of thinking. It is often said that ‘thinking rules a person’s world’.

Also, you believe what you have thought in your mind. And what you believe about your life is more important than what anyone else believes.
We have to be very careful with what we anticipate or think. Negative expectations or thoughts become self-fulfilling prophecies. By focusing on the negative and not positive you are agreeing to let quagmire creep into your future. Always anticipate the best outcome for yourself and others, because when what you expect is just more of the same, that is what you get.

The truth is, if you think often enough that you can’t do something, you will be unable to do it even though you have the talent, time, resources, strategy, strength and friends to accomplish it. Only those who think positive can do great things.
So today, start thinking positive and stay positive !

God wants you back

Isaiah 1:18-19

Bible Text=> Jeremiah 8:4-5.
The people of Judah committed many sins and were not ready to repent just as we have it today. They loved what they ought not to love, as they worshipped the sun, moon, host of heaven, graven images, etc (verses 2, 19) . They made vain God’s instructions by violating them. They thought that’s the definition of wisdom (verses 8-9). Haven’t they read that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom? Wisdom is when we accept God’s word [not by mouth but in deed].

Self Concept

self esteem

I’m sure the concept ‘self concept’ does not sound strange to us. If it does, here is a concise meaning. Self concept {or self worth or self esteem} is what you feel, think and see about yourself. It is an atmosphere of your thoughts and a picture of who you think you are. (I’m sorry for being too formal. How are you guys doing and how was today? I spent mine learning new things, making new friends and being happy). Continue reading
