Success Starts with Your Thoughts

By: Joyce Meyer



We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.
                                                                                2 Corinthians 10:5





Nobody is successful in any venture just by wishing they would be. Successful people make a plan and talk to themselves about that plan constantly. You can think things on purpose, and if you make what you think about match what you actually want to do, your feelings may not like it, but they will go along. I slept great last night, and when I woke up at 5:00a.m., I didn't feel like getting up. It was so cozy under the fluffy cover, and I felt like staying right there. But I had a plan. I had decided how many hours I would write today, and in order to do that I had to get up. I thought, I am going to get up now, and I got up!
Do you make an effort to choose your thoughts, or do you just meditate on whatever falls into your head, even if it is in total disagreement with what you have said you want out of life? When your thoughts are going in a wrong direction, do you capture them and submit them to Christ as the Bible instructs (see 2 Cor. 10:5)?
I want to encourage you today that good news is you can change. As I have said for years, we are in a war and the mind is the battlefield. We either win or lose our battles based on winning or losing the war in our minds. Learn to think according to the Word of God, and your emotions will start lining up with your thoughts.
If you have had years of experiencing wrong thinking and letting your emotions lead you as I did, making the change may not be easy, and it will definitely require a commitment of study, time, and effort. But the results will be worth it. Don’t say, “I am just an emotional person, and I can’t help the way I feel.” Take control. You can do it!

Trust in Him: Keep your thoughts in line with the plan God has for your life - a plan to prosper you, and not to harm you (see Jer. 29:11). Take control of your thoughts by trusting them to Him.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

God Made Us Unique Part 1

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderful made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27

Definition:
·Unique – being the only one
·Individual – Intended for one person
·Original – a work composed firsthand
·Different – partly or totally unlike in nature, form or quality


I love the word unique. We also have other words like:
·Individual
·Original
·Different


I prefer to use the word unique, because it stands out in my eyes. Can you even imagine if God made everybody the same? With the same favorite color, clothes styles, food etc. This world would be really boring. Thanks to God that He created everybody unique. When God created us He made us in detail. Like what size to make our head, ears, nose, eyes, mouth, and body. He also has chosen our skin, eyes, and hair color. He created much more, but my main point is He took the time to create everybody uni…
