    DAY ELEVEN CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

        DAY ELEVEN OF CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK    John 21:20a-22...Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple (John) whom Jesus loved following. Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus,"But Lord, what about this man?" Jesus said to him, "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me."    Yeah, I know Father that I should not do this, but what about So and So?"   Like for instance, you are really mad or hurt by your spouses actions, and you are being told to forgive them and pray for them, and you say, "Well, what [...]

    DAY TEN  CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

        DAY TEN OF CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK      "You will no longer be spoken of as ‘Azuvah [Abandoned] … rather you will be called Hephzibah [My-Delight-Is-In-Her]’. As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you." Isaiah 62:4-5, Complete Jewish Bible      I simply love the above Scripture...in fact so much that I named a Women's Equipping Class Hephzibah...pronounced Hep ze baa. This name was given to Israel and all who follow after Jesus Christ. She will lead others to Beulah Land (Promised).    I[...]

    DAY NINE   CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

       DAY NINE OF CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK   Gal.6:7...Be not deceived...God is not mocked...for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.      We find ourselves using this Scripture in a negative way...today I am going to use it positively, because positively when you continue doing good for those who have wronged you...good will come back to you.    It may not and probably won't be from those who have wronged you but without doubt...good is coming your way. Understand this, if you sow encouragement today, during the times when [...]

    DAY EIGHT   CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

          DAY  EIGHT OF CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK       Job.3:25-26...For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me. I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes.     Just as faith opens the door to the blessings that come from God, fear gives satan a chance to walk in, steal, kill and destroy you and wreck havoc in your life.  Could it be through the way we think that we have either blessings or curses?   Job daily sacrificed and prayed to heaven for his children who partied a lot. He did this because he [...]

    DAY SEVEN  CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

           DAY SEVEN OF CHANGING YOUR THOUGHTS     Isa.59:19...When the enemy comes in  like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.       One day, as I was thinking about the Scripture, I realized what it was really saying to me. I ask God these questions and I got these answers.   1: Who is the enemy?    2: How does the enemy come in?    3: What is the flood?   4: Where does the Spirit of the LORD reside?   5: What is a standard?   6: And how does [...]

    DAY SIX  CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

           DAY SIX OF CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK      Prov. 23:7...For as he thinks in his heart, so is he, "Eat and drink!" he says to you, but his heart is not with you.      Are you living a lie? Have you found yourself living under a lot of stress and can't seem to dig your way out?    We are all going through some tough times in our world, but those who know Jesus as Savior still have that hope to cling to, that reason to keep on keeping on.    I have learned a lot about the mind over the past fifteen years or so, and [...]

    DAY FIVE OF CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

            DAY FIVE OF CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK     Today let's talk about playing games with our own selves.   I heard a story about a young man who had struggled most of his life with his weight. He loved eating donuts, and eating the whole dozen was nothing to him...no restraint...no self-control.   One day he decided he could say no to those donuts, and started a diet and workout regimen. He did so well that everyone who saw how slim and trim he was becoming told him how good he looked. He shed the unwanted pounds and worked out daily, as well [...]

    DAY FOUR OF CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

         DAY FOUR OF CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK      Psm. 147:3...He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.     Is your heart breaking today over someone who you trusted and found they can no longer be trusted? You thought they were your friend, but now it is as if history is repeating itself.   Have you heard that voice telling you that you are being used? Are you hearing that you will never make the grade with pleasing others?   What is causing you to think these things? Are these thoughts repeated thoughts? Do they keep coming [...]
