jumpstart 3/26

Posted by dturn on March 26, 2007

Almost everyone feels stress at some point in their life.

Mondays are usually the most stressful day of the week.
We have to go back to work, go back to school, or even start a vacation.

Just living day by day can be stressful.
Instead of stress, we need to create rest in our lives.

Here’s 3 ways:

REJECT THE NEGATIVE (words, people, thinking)

We need to control what enters our minds.
You can see if what you’re thinking is wrong just by comparing it to the word of God.
If you don’t control your thoughts, the enemy can use them to have you SPEAK negative words in the atmosphere.
We should also stay away from negative words and people.
They will just poison you in every way.
Amos 3:3 says that how can 2 walk together unless they agree.
Who are you agreeing with?

HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE PROTECTION OF GOD

You really have no reason to fear or be stressed out as long as you trust in Gods promises to shield you from danger.

Take a look at these scriptures:

Proverbs 3:25-26
Psalm 56:11
Psalm 91:5-7

We have a right to divine protection and safety when we are firmly established in our righteousness (our right standing with God)

USE PRAISE TO ALTER THE ATMOSPHERE

Praise will change your surroundings.
It’s almost impossible to doubt and praise God at the same time.
Praise puts things in perspective.
It forces you to recognize who God is.
Praise puts you in Gods presence.
In His presence there is fullness of joy.
and peace.
and security.
and answers.

Thats how you create rest instead of being stressed.

dont believe the hype

Kem Meyer has a greaqt post on her blog about nit-picking, criticizing Christians.

read it here
Why are we more known for what we’re against as opposed to what we’re for?

Jesus spoke in a way that everyone could understand.
Why do we have to sound so important and “deep”?

I just want to be a regular guy seeking to help other regular people find their way to Christ.

peace

big things coming

Posted by dturn on March 24, 2007

Just found out that I live in the 10th fastest growing county in America.

That means that there are thousands more opportunities to help people become devoted followers of Christ.

God help me to be a witness.

thank God for dirt

Posted by dturn on March 19, 2007

Thank God for dirt!!

If it wasn’t for dirt I might not have known how dirty I was.
If it wasn’t for dirt I might not have known how clean He has made me.
If it wasn’t for dirt I would have not be able to bring others to be made clean.

Thank God for dirt!!

let’s work on it

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

You know what would be remarkable?
It would be amazing if the church could lead to charge into racial reconciliation.
If the body of Christ, children of a God who is love won’t do it, it won’t be done.

Everyone is talking about the Secret (thanks Oprah), but here’s the biggest secret of them all…..

We are different, in terms of color, shoe size, personality, taste, eye color.
Why on earth would we let the color of our skin keep us from sharing and receiving from others.

I’ve met some tremendous people over the years who happen to be white, chinese, filipino, and a mixture of things.

The bible says that people perish becaue of a lack of knowledge.
I’m here to school you on the fact that if the church doesn’t get it together, it’s gonna perish.

A body doesn’t function well without all it’s parts working with one another.

Work with me people!!!

peace
