reign in bad thinking

Posted by dturn on November 26, 2008

A mind is a terrible thing for waste.

Don’t let your mind be the resting place for the worlds junk.

You can’t have a positive, progressive life and think negatively at the same time.
Satan’s desires to penetrate our lives through the cracks in our thinking.

You must find ways to guard your mind at all times.
You might need to turn off the T.V., radio, or the computer.
You may need to change jobs or lose some friends.

Biblical mind-renewal is not a one-shot deal.
We must daily replace negative thoughts with faith-filled words from God.

Correct information, from God, will always lead to positive results.

faith is offensive

Posted by dturn on November 25, 2008

Faith doesn’t wait for the “right” time, the time is always NOW.
Faith is progressive, it should lead us to a new level of living.

If you are in this same place next year, you need more faith.

We should not be retreating, not even in bad times.
Bad times paralyze people but it actually clears the way for people with faith.

Real faith is not stagnant or stale.
Real faith is not yesterday.

Faith moves toward forever.

faith changes everything

Posted by dturn on November 24, 2008

What is faith?

I am believing for something that hasn’t happened yet.
Something that people will say “that will NEVER happen“.
It’s crazy to believe for something like this.
It’s all God.

It doesn’t take faith to believe for something that you can already touch and see.

God’s word is our assurance.
If He said it, it is already complete.

I just have to walk in the confidence of that fact.

My faith in God will change any situation.
Especially the IMPOSSIBLE kind.

I’m not going to wait until the battle is over to shout!!

funky faith friday

Posted by dturn on November 21, 2008

Here are some of the things that I am crazy enough to believe God for:

1. A sold-out crew of world-changers. I will be having an info meeting soon!!

2. More writing opportunities. I need more discipline and dedication.

3. Healing for a friend who is going to have his prostate removed.

be the solution

Posted by dturn on November 19, 2008

Earlier this year I had a rant about a conference that I felt didn’t have enough diversity in it.
Although I felt good at the moment, God was not pleased at all.
All I did was repeat what the problem was.
It was like eating vomit.

What I needed to do was find the solution. I needed to be the solution.

The best way to live this life is with love.
Love without hesitation and prejudice.
If you discriminate, you can’t really love.

I want to show the world that race is not a factor when it comes to the body of Christ.
Although we may be different on the outside doesn’t mean that we can live without loving each other.
I am learning to appreciate people for who they are and I am trying to get to know how their past experiences have formed their current behavior.

Christ’s heart is for unity in His body.

We are all on the same side in this eternal battle (Mark 9:40)
We don’t have time to waste.
Old mindsets and petty differences need to be crushed.
Does the color of my/your skin really matter?

I am ready to link arms with my brothers and sisters of every color and nationality.
It is time to do battle in the name of Jesus.

If we don’t learn to love each other, we will eventually destroy each other (Gal. 5:14-15).
