My two cents 8-12-16

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Aim for the bulls eyeWe will not allow ourselves to be unlike ourselves. All of us have the potential to be better. However, when you see yourself as only so good, even though you have the potential to be much better, your creative subconscious always brings you back to the level of where you believe yourself to be (remember that’s its job). If you are absolutely certain that something is going to be really difficult, you will make it hard. When you say “NO WAY” the brain simply agrees: “OK, if you say so. You’re right: there is no way.” However, when you exclaim, “ABSOLUTELY OF COURSE I CAN DO THAT” the brain not only agrees with you, but it ACTUALLY ENDEAVORS TO FIND A WAY for you to accomplish what you want to accomplish. (This from Steven Campbell in Making Your Mind Magnificent: Flourishing at Any Age (2010) p.90)

My two cents

Faith is a touchy subject, and yet we know when you stand for nothing, you fall for anything – especially in the social network.

So my faith informs me that the flesh of my brain is the weaker part of me that believes everything, and the divine love and wisdom of Jesus grants me the grace to establish the thoughts in my own mind to seek and do the will of God for me and my family. And by the grace of God, my brain is trained to ignore untrue things, and He brings the good to pass through me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Isaiah 42:7

To open blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, And them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.


All it takes is one mustard seed of faith to get a fresh start.
