Wisdom ~ The Benefits of Right Thinking

thinking

Hi!
As you know, I haven’t shared anything lately. That’s because I’m trying to work on my new books “Blue Sky and a Park Bench” and it’s devotional companion. I’ll share more with you later on.

~ Here’s some MORE WISDOM for you today much like the things you’ll find in my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

Something Simple But Yet So Profound:

Right Thinking = Right Living
Right Living = A Better Life.

Here’s the question. So how do you get RIGHT THINKING?
1. You get it by feeding you mind something great all the time.
2. You get it by saying positive things (self-talk).
3. You GET IT BY READING AND MEDITATING AND ABSORBING God’s Word — from the Bible.

Suggestions: Listen to Christian TV and radio. Read books by Christian authors that help you grow.

Make it a great week!

God Bless You!

More Wisdom: Things Happen For You

href=”https://nancigravill.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/planswithsnoopy.jpg”>planswithsnoopy~

As you know, my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland, is all about RESOURCES. In Part 3 – I recommended 16 books that would be great resources for you. Here’s a little bit more about another book (a great resource) written by a writer/pastor. The WISDOM I am sharing today is all about how things happen FOR you. They do not happen to you.

Make it a great day!

God Bless You!

“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,”Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer.29:11) Oh, the beauty of the thrice-repeated word plans. God is plotting for our good. In all the setbacks and slipups, He is ordaining the best for our future. Every event in our days if designed to draw us toward our God and our destiny.

Things happen for you ~ for your good no matter what the challenge, the hurt, the tears. God has good plans for your life.

More Wisdom: Forgiveness

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Forgivness is not for the other person; It’s really for you!

Begin the process of forgiveness. Keep no lists of wrongs. Pray for your antagonists rather than plot against them. HATE the wrong without hating wrongdoers. Turn your attention away from what they did to you to what Jesus did for you. Outrageous as it may seem, Jesus died for them too. If he thinks they are worth forgiving, they are. Does that make forgiveness easy? No. Quick? Seldom. Painless?

To the credit of Jesus they were healed. … Their spines began to straighten, skin began to clear, and smiles began to return. The mass of misery became a leaping, jumping, celebrating chorus of health.

… What did your wife say? How did the kids respond? How does it feel to be healed? Jesus waited for the ten men to return and say thanks. But only one of them came back.

Even Jesus was astonished. You’d think that neither fire nor hail could have kept them from falling at Jesus’ feet. Where were the other nine? It’s easy to speculate.

Some were too busy to be thankful … Too busy, too cautious, too self-centered, too arrogant … to close to home? If this story is any indication, nine out of ten people suffer from ingratitude. Epidemic proportions. Why?

Author Max Lucado, puts it this way (paraphrased, some word for word):

Flying home from the Midwest one night, a snow storm delayed his arrival in Dallas. He raced to the gate in hopes of catching the final flight of the night for San Antonio. To Mr. Lucado’s surprise, there were still seats available. Even more surprising was the fact that he was put in First Class.

He boarded the plane and nestled down in the wide seat with extra legroom.

Color me thankful. Not every passenger was as appreciative as I was. A fellow across the aisle was angry because he only had only one pillow. With the attendants scrambling to lock doors and prepare for the delayed departure, he was complaining about insufficient service. “I paid extra to fly first class.” He said. I am accustomed to better attention. I want another pillow!”

On the other side of the aisle, yours truly smiled like a guy who had won the lottery without buying a ticket. One passenger grumbled; the other was grateful. The difference? The crank paid his way into first class. My seat was a gift.

On which side of the aisle do you find yourself?

If you feel the world owes you something, brace yourself for a life of sour hours. You’ll never get reimbursed. The sky will never be blue enough; the steak won’t be cooked enough; the universe won’t be good enough to deserve a human being like you … “A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.”

The grateful heart on the other hand, sees each day as a gift. Thankful people focus less on the pillows they lack and more on the privileges they have … the grateful heart is like a magnet sweeping over the day, collecting reasons for gratitude. A zillion diamonds sparkle against the velvet of your sky every night. Thank you, God.

More Wisdom: The In-Between Times

~ Happy Summer!

 

As you know, my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland, is all about RESOURCES. In Part 3 – I recommended 16 books that would be great resources for you. Here’s a little bit more about another book (a great resource) that’s wonderful especially if you are going through some difficulties. And who isn’t?! Below I’ve also shared a link to a video from a TV series that will inspire you too!

Make it a great day!

God Bless You!

A situation starts — that’s the beginning. Resolution comes quickly sometimes but many times it comes after many, many months on what I call the in-between times. We all have them. The times we sit and wait on the answers.

Below is some text from a great book You’ll Get through This by Max Lucado. I’m sure you’ll want to read more after reading this. Enjoy!  ~ Nanci

Joseph emerged from his prison cell bragging on God. Jail time didn’t devastate his faith; it deepened it.

And you? You aren’t in prison, but you may be infertile or inactive or in limbo or in between jobs or in search of health, help, a house, or a spouse. Are you in God’s waiting room? If so, here is what you need to know: while you wait, God works.

“My Father is always at work,” Jesus said (John 5:17 NIV). God never twiddles his thumbs. He never stops He takes no vacations. He rested on the seventh day of creation but got back to work on the eighth and hasn’t stopped since. Just because you are idle, don’t assume God is.

More Wisdom: You Have to Do the Hard Things

~ Here’s some MORE WISDOM for you today much like the things you’ll find in my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

More Wisdom … just for you!

Ready?
Have a great weekend!

God Bless You!
Nanci

——————————————————————-

You have to do the hard things

-You have to make the call you’re afraid to make.
-You have to get up earlier than you want to get up.
-You have to give more than you get in return right away.
-You have to care more about others than they care about you.
-You have to fight when you are already injured, bloody, and sore.
-You have to feel unsure and insecure when playing it safe seems smarter.
-You have to lead when no one else is following you yet.
-You have to invest in yourself even though no one else is.
-You have to look like a fool while you’re looking for answers you don’t have.
-You have to grind out the details when it’s easier to shrug them off.
-You have to deliver results when making excuses is an option.
-You have to search for your own explanations even when you’re told to accept the “facts.”
-You have to make mistakes and look like an idiot.
-You have to try and fail and try again.
-You have to run faster even though you’re out of breath.
-You have to be kind to people who have been cruel to you.
-You have to meet deadlines that are unreasonable and deliver results that are unparalleled.
-You have to be accountable for your actions even when things go wrong.
-You have to keep moving towards where you want to be no matter what’s in front of you.

You have to do the hard things –the things that no one else is doing — the things that scare you. The things that make you wonder how much longer you can hold on.

Those are the things that define you. Those are the things that make the difference between living a life of mediocrity or outrageous success.

The hard things are the easiest things to avoid — to excuse away — to pretend like they don’t apply to you.

The simple truth about how ordinary people accomplish outrageous feats of success is that they do the hard things that smarter, wealthier, more qualified people don’t have the courage — or desperation — to do.

Do the hard things. You might be surprised at how amazing you really are.
