Our Thoughts Matter

With all of the different opinions and perspectives coming at us from every direction, it’s great to know that there’s something we can truly count on: God loves us!

God loves us so much that not only did he create us, he created us in his image with the ability to think.

The Bible encourages us to think about the right things (see Philippians 4:8) and to take every thought captive (see 2 Corinthians 10:5) because we know that our thoughts shape our actions, our actions shape our habits and our habits shape our future. And if you stop and look closely at this, you’ll see that God has given us a tremendous gift! By deliberately choosing our thoughts, we can have a huge impact on our future!

Let’s embrace this power and freedom by surrendering to Christ and going for the life of purpose and fulfillment followed by true paradise in the next phase of our eternity with him.

Once we bring our thoughts into alignment with Christ, then he will give us the necessary clarity, confidence and courage to put the gifts he is giving us to good use for his glory. Then we’ll be doing and becoming all that he is equipping us to do and become!

Let’s shine bright!

Gifts and Blessings

What did God give you this year?

It’s almost here, the special time of Christmas get-togethers when gifts will be ripped open with wrapping paper flying and squeals of delight. Let’s pause to take a minute to consider the gifts God gave us this year.

Did he give you health? Work? Love of family and friends? Maybe he gave you a new interest in puzzles or an undiscovered ability in music, or a new hobby of cooking or gardening.

Maybe your priorities were adjusted, such as moving at a somewhat slower pace and taking in more of what your home and those close to you have to offer.

Or possibly you experienced, or are still experiencing, some really tough situations that make it hard to find the silver lining. My hope is that God will give you strength and peace as you look forward to new possibilities and potential for growth in 2021.

Let’s recognize the many gifts and priority shifts we experienced this year. It’s a great time to focus on what is truly important as we thank God for his incredible love and sacrifice, as well as this year’s unique gifts and blessings, including what might be under the tree.

Let’s shine bright,

Dan
