Your Attitude Determines Your Future
Do you realize you are creating your future by the very attitude you posses?
Take a look at Proverbs 15:15. The Amplified Bible says it this way, "All the days of the desponding afflicted are made evil (by anxious thoughts and foreboding), but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast (regardless of circumstances)."
We have an "either - or" situation here. Have a glad heart and a continual feast, or have your days made evil by "stinking thinking." It's all an attitude.
Your attitude is supported by your beliefs and your beliefs are vital to your success or failure in life. Jesus said, "As you have believed, let it be done unto you" (Matthew 8:13).
Whatever emotion you experience at any given time is supported by a particular belief. If you are experiencing joy, there is an underlying belief that supports that emotion. If you are experiencing discouragement, there is an underlying belief supporting that too.
If you know God is taking care of you and watching out for your best interest, then relax. Have a glad heart and know He is in control, for the peace of God surpasses all understanding (Phil 4:7).
If, for some reason, you are experiencing some negative emotion, you're believing in something that is causing it.
So, the next time you're exuding a poor demeanor; slumped shoulders, shallow breathing, a sagging facial expression, just stop and ask yourself, "What is the belief that is supporting this behavior?" Once you recognize it, you can change it. It's just a decision.
"He who has a glad heart has a continual feast, but all the days of the desponding afflicted are made evil."
Notice the phrase, "desponding afflicted." The word "desponding" means losing hope. As long as God is alive, there is no reason to lose hope. "He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that works in us" (Eph 3:20).
This power that works in us is our faith. Jesus said, "According to your faith let it be done unto you" (Matthew 9:29).
You are creating your future by the very attitude you posses. Don't worry, be happy and trust God.

Failure Is Never As Painful As Regret!
"I would rather regret some of my failures in life than to live my life failing to forget my regrets." GRIn other words, failing at something and getting back up is much less painful than to look back and regret not doing something (or doing something) and not being able to go back and change the outcome.

Who is the more spiritual person? The woman out on a Sunday morning excursion for coffee and a newspaper who swerves to avoid hitting a dog, or is it, the man who hits the dog in his haste to get to church on time? Who knows?

Wealth Catchers: Discover Wealth and Prosperity with the Angels of Abundance
Did you ever know somebody who easily accumulates wealth? If it rained money and you each put pots out to catch it, would yours be likely to hold the half inch or so that was predicted to fall and theirs overflow? How could it happen that way? The money energy falls equally on each of you just as rain would and your opportunity to stand in the flow of money is equal as well.I wondered the same thing and, oddly enough, the Angels brought the answer to me as I flipped through a catalogue of earth friendly products.
I always thought Ecclesiastes was like Proverbs. That's probably because of the "to every time there is a season.
You Lookin At Me?
It's human nature to point a finger when we think someone else is guilty of something but yet we don't stop to consider that we too may be guilty of the very same thing we are accusing others of. Why is it so easy to turn a blind eye and overlook our own faults and yet so easy to see these faults in someone else? For some reason, we take pleasure in judging, condemning and criticizing others.
What is Enlightenment - Meaning Definition and Its relation to Self-Realization
What is Enlightenment?What do we really mean when we talk of Enlightenment? Is it not the bloom of life for a true seeker of spirituality? The life itself comes to a full circle the moment one reaches the stage of Enlightenment. Seeking Enlightenment in the present age (the metallic age aka Kali Yuga in Hinduism is more of a curiosity than the faint hope of being able to achieve it within the present lifetime.
Living Between Two Worlds!
We are all here on this plane, thinking to ourselves "who am I and what am I doing here?" I believe this question is bouncing around in the heads of many people! Some of us then go in search of our answers by asking people whom we think know more than ourselves for help! We seek guidance from our mediums and psychics, from religions and other groups that we think we might find an answer and in most cases we are still left wondering. Have we ever stopped to question why? Have we asked ourselves why we are not convinced by the answers we get from other people?It is obvious why no one can provide you with an answer.

God Loves You With the Love of God
Do you ever feel that what you read in some Christian books is not really God's truth at all, but is merely the opinion of the writer, dressed up in the clothing of truth? Such books are merely imposters and are like the fig tree Jesus cursed-they look promising on the outside, but when you get up close, you find that they, like the fig tree, are barren, written for the glory of the writer and his or her ideas, not for the truth of God and his glory.Unfortunately, many sermons and teachings fall into the same category.

Masculine Energy versus Feminine Energy
I have been reading a lot lately about the concepts of masculine and feminine energy. It all sort of goes along with the yin and yang definitions of masculine and feminine.
In God's world, everything can be used as an anology to His Word. I'm using this small unassuming small leak in my tire as an example of how if it is let go, can cause a spiritual wreck.
