Change of Mind

By ChuckMcLaughlin | January 15, 2020 | 0 Comments

Our minds have attitudes! We have these thought patterns that have been ingrained in us called habits. Now, we must acknowledge that our natural thought tendencies are far from perfect. This is because of the earthly environment that has been so corrupted by sin. It’s so easy to think critical and negative, which in turn

Am I Capable?

Many times, we struggle on whether we got what it takes to accomplish what God seems to be directing in our lives. Maybe it’s a personal doubt or even possibly words from others that brings this questioning within our lives. Whatever the case may be, I’m confident that if God is calling, He will provide.

Everything New

I believe we all agree that it’s easy to fall in love with “new.” Maybe a new outfit, a car with that “new car” smell, or that new-fangled gadget that will just make life so much easier. But then we look around and what do we see is not “new” but used and broken down.

Praise the Lord

Today is a good day! We have a tendency of reflecting on the negative. Think of the weather. During the summer, when that sun comes out and the warmth of the day begins and continues to grow hotter, our response many of times it “It’s too hot.” During the winter, when those temperatures are plummeting

Where’s Your Treasure

The comments and actions of others carries a power to break your spirit. This is why our focus needs to be on Christ, at all times and not the common individual. Unfortunately, we sometimes have to be reminded of this the hard way, which so happened to me this last few days. I let a

Restored Sanity

Have you been there? Those times that you feel sanity is nearly impossible. In reading Daniel chapter 4, I’m confident Nebuchadnezzar can relate, with the impossibility of sanity. When we look around this world, there are more things that point to insanity and yet, we are becoming immune to the point we call them normal!

A Gentle and Quiet Spirit

The Bible sometimes translates the word “gentle” as being meek.  And being meek is probably not something many of us aspire to be.  Mainly because our definition of meekness not only sounds like weakness but the two words carry the same meaning.  Here’s the thing though, true gentleness is only accomplished with strength more than

Step of faith

Is God calling you to step out in faith – or – has He called you in the recent past to do so?  If so, I can just imagine the emotions you have and are feeling.  Let me guess, it’s being excited and scared at the same time.  You’re wanting to do it but have

Decisions….Decisions

Today, I went for a ride with my son down to his college and I was watching the students moving from class to class, I started to think of how many are really confident with the career path they are on.  I mean, let’s face it, one of the hardest things in life is knowing

Guidance

My senior year in High School I thought I had it all figured out. Before that year I worked hard to make my last year the easiest. You see, I knew just what I needed to graduate, which gave me the ability to have 4 study halls and which also prompted a meeting from my
