Wed, 20 Apr 2011 00:00:00 -0400Our Mind is one of our most precious possessions; it's also a possession that is easy to take for granted. Rarely as human beings do we take stock and hold inventory of our thoughts and perpetual mediations. But this simple habit can mean the difference between a healthy productive mind, operating at optimum, a servant able to enable the manifestation of our destiny. Or a troubled storm torn vessel, unable to assist us is in the vicissitudes of life. In this article I want to highlight four main elements I feel will be deeply useful to consider when we are endeavouring to corral our minds in the direction that will produce the most desired results.

Wed, 20 Apr 2011 00:00:00 -0400We can see here that our lives will not lack joy even when things get messy if we continually tap into Christ's love for us.

Some are small and really have little effect. Scratching our head when confused, nail biting. Others have an effect on us. Smoking. I fancy a smoke and before you can stop yourself, you've lit up, despite that we should know it's not healthy. Fancy a beer? How many of us tend to frequent certain local bars or pubs on certain days? We just tend to follow these regular patterns.

There are many cases where people have been (to put it nicely) extraordinarily bad at something and gotten tremendous amounts of publicity. This goes back to the public being intrigued by the unusual or different. At times, this seems to reflect the somewhat sadistic nature of the viewing audience.
