Tearing Down or Building Up?

Tearing Down or Building Up?

Tear Down … or Build up?   I’m not sure why it is…but it seems easier to notice the bad qualities in other people than the good qualities. Likewise, other people often seem eager to criticize and point out flaws, rather than exercise some kindness and understanding. And even though each of us would rather hear kind words and encouragement over criticism, it seems to be our human nature to tear down instead of build up another person. Yet we…

Declaring Our Faith in Challenging Times

Declaring Our Faith in Challenging Times

Declaring our faith in challenging times can attract criticism, persecution–and in some parts of the world–imprisonment, torture, and even death. It’s a personal choice whether to keep silent, or to speak up and not apologize for our faith. In that case, we need to make our faith known with actions AND words. It’s important to honor our word so people can trust us and know we are reliable. However, we also need to back up our words with action. Intentions…

What Is Your Declaration for 2017? Mine Is BREAKTHROUGHS!

What Is Your Declaration for 2017? Mine Is BREAKTHROUGHS!

The Bible and the Law of Attraction have many principles in common, including the emphasis on the power of words, and proclaiming things in faith–even when we can’t physically see them. “Calling things that are not as if they are” [paraphrased from Romans 4:17].   If we constantly speak negative words, we are more likely to attract mostly negative things; if we constantly speak positive words, we are more likely to attract mostly positive things. “Death and life are in…

Developing Confidence in Conversations with God

Developing Confidence in Conversations with God

I am so thankful, because prayer has certainly saved me and my loved ones from various harmful things on multiple occasions. Likewise, I’ve heard from others who have had answers…

Are YOU Up to the Challenge? No Complaining or Negativity in 2017!

I’m challenging myself. Are YOU up to the challenge? I’m endeavoring to NOT complain or dwell on negativity in this new year of 2017!  Related to that, I want to make sure my words are uplifting and wholesome. Words have power, for good or bad, and it’s important to pay attention to what we say–better yet, to think BEFORE we speak!     Some inspiration for this second day of January…   “Today thank God and decide not to complain…

Challenge in the New Year: No Complaining or Negative Words

Challenge in the New Year: No Complaining or Negative Words

We’re down to two days left of 2016 — and we DID get our nor’easter yesterday here in Maine, with more than a foot of new snow!     I am thankful that we did not encounter as many problems with this “quick hit” Nor’easter as we have with bigger, longer lasting storms in the past. Our power was not out for more than a few hours, and since it was during early to mid-morning hours, it didn’t interfere with…
