Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind… Romans 12:2, AMP.

Many people today don’t realize that the reason they’re not happy, the reason they’re not enjoying life is simply because they’ve trained their minds in the wrong direction. They’ve programmed their minds to worry. They’ve programmed their minds to complain. They’ve programmed their minds to see the negative. But just as we can train our mind to focus on the negative, we can also reprogram our minds to focus on the positive. It all depends on what you meditate on.

When we meditate on the Word of God, we reprogram our minds. When we meditate on God’s goodness, we are developing a right mindset. When we choose to be grateful and focus on what’s right rather than what’s wrong, we are choosing a positive attitude. This doesn’t happen automatically; you have to discipline yourself to focus on the right things. You have to make a conscious effort to spend time in the Word of God every single day until a habit is formed.

I believe that as you honor God with your time, He’ll multiply it back to you. As you stay faithful and focused on Him, He will direct your steps, and you will embrace the blessing and victory He has in store for you!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lead not on your own understanding. In all ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.”

Proverbs 3:5-6



“We must go on and recognize the real Giver. It is madness not to. Because, if we do not, we shall be relying on human beings. And that is always going to let us down. The best of them will make mistakes; all of them will die. We must be thankful to all the people who have helped us, we must honour them and love them. But never, never pin your whole faith on any human being: not if he is the best and wisest in the whole world. There are lots of nice things you can do with sand: but do not try building a house on it.”

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity




“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”

1 John 4:7-8



“And so God has given those people over to do the filthy things their hearts desire, and they do shameful things and dishonor their bodies among themselves. They exchange the truth about God for a lie; they worship and serve what God has created instead of the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever! Amen.”

Romans 1:24-25



“…the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen…”

Jesus Christ



“Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

Psalm 94:16



“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools…”

Romans 1:22



“Take heed that no man deceive you.”

Jesus Christ
