There is no better time to renew our commitment to pray for our leaders than the start of a new presidential administration. Barack Obama needs our prayers and we should give them freely and eagerly no matter how we may have voted.

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Who do you think is the Holy Spirit? I am sure there is someone who will come across this post who may not know anything about the Holy Spirit.

I just love to read these letters written by Derrick Prince over his lifetime.

Read this one and I am sure that if you were confused about the Holy Spirit before,  after this you will get a better understanding.

ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT

More food for thought!

If you have been keeping track of my blog posts you would see that I am really focusing on the need for us to begin a journey of discovering God’s has planned for our lives in 2009 and beyond. In doing this, there is definitely a need for us to come away from worldly thinking and living and get into a deeper relationship with God. A deeper relationship can be developed through reading the Bible and speaking with God through prayer in order to develop our faith in Him. Just as we may spend time with that special some one to get to know him or her better, we must spend time with God.

Here’s one way to start opening up your heart and soul to discovering God’s plan and it involves basically changing the way you think. It will not be easy in the beginning (I know oh too well), but I have found that continuous pray breaks down every wall and strong hold. You will not be able to see your usual stresses in a good light, but by getting into a close relationship with God, He will show you how to deal with as well as perceive these stresses in a positive light.

Tim Sanders, author of Saving the World at Work: What Companies and Individuals Can Do to Go Beyond Making a Profit to Making a Difference, has hit the nail on the head in his article “Attitude Adjustment”. The article, although written from a business point of view, be applied to your personal spiritual life.

Very often we look at certain things which do not necessarily fall into our daily duties and we somehow get so upset and complain about these things without analyzing the situation to realise that some “have to’s” can be converted into your “get-to’s”, according to Sanders,.

In a previous post, I would made mention of our need to become more positive in our thinking. So from now on, adjust your attitude, remember what God has promised and change all your “have to’s” into “get to’s” for 2009 and beyond.
