Help Me Make It Through The Day

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever said, “Please Lord, help get me through this day. I don’t think I can take much more of this.”

Perhaps you were physically tired or mentally exhausted. . .but for whatever reason. . . you’re ready to close the books on this particular day.

On a spiritual dimension. . .if you’ve felt or ever feel that way don’t say it for several reasons.

First, your words can empower the enemy to continue tormenting your day.

The Word of God tells us that our words have consequences . . . we decide whether they are for good or for evil.

Proverbs 18:20 in the Good News Translation says:

“You will have to live with the consequences of everything you say.”

Think about that. . . and the depth of impact within that verse.

“<<YourName>> will have to live with the consequences of everything <<he/she>> says.”

Have you ever said something you wish you hadn’t said and you knew it just as soon as the words came out of your mouth?

7 Keys To Handling The Storms Of Life

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever been in a hurricane, tornado or storm where the winds were howling and were not only frightening but dangerous and perhaps even deadly?

About a year and a half ago, Hurricane Matthew swept through our part of the world with winds between 75 and 95 miles per hour. The force of the storm was so strong it blew down two sixty foot oak trees in the vacant lot next to our property.

As I reflect on that Saturday night. . .I recall another night where the winds were howling and waves were violently slapping the side of the boat.

Mark 4:39 says:

"And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."

These were mostly experienced sailors so you know it had to be a storm of enormous proportion.

The disciples and Jesus were crossing the Sea of Galilee when a storm began to rage. The disciples were frightened, fearful and faithless in the midst of what they perceived to be a deadly situation.

What do we do to be sure we are equipped? Here are seven things we should do when facing the storms that arise in our own life.

1.         When trouble is headed your way. . .do what Jesus did.

Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Written by Harold Herring.

Your comfort zone is an enemy of your future. . .a hindrance to your success. . .a stumbling block to your destiny.

If you stay in your comfort zone. . .you will never leave nor surpass your current reality.

Here are seven ways to get out of your comfort zone.

1.         Realize Why You Are. . .Where You Are

If you’re working the same job. . .in the same position you were ten years ago. . .if you’re still paying off the same debts. . .it’s time for some self-examination on your part.

“We cannot become what we want to be by remaining what we are.” Max DePree

You’ve got to know why you are. . .where you are.

Is it fear? Is it a desire to be comfortable in your surroundings and in the things you do on a daily basis?

If you don’t like where you are … why in the world would you want to continue living where you are?

It's Not A Money Problem...It's A Mind Problem

Written by Harold Herring.

The HOLY SPIRIT wants you ready to learn about how to develop a Debt Free. . .Rich Thoughts Mentality….

It’s important to understand. . .that our mentality has nothing to do with how smart we are. Let that sink in for a moment.

The dictionary defines mentality as:

“a habitual or characteristic mental attitude that determines how you will interpret and respond to situations”

Let me say it another way……

Who you are is not determined by how you look, where you live, who your parents are, where you work or what you drive.

Who you are is a result of choices that you’ve made.

You are where you are and what you are because of the dominant thoughts you’ve allowed into your mind.

If you want to change your mentality…you have to change the way you think.

Proverbs 23:7 in the King James Version says:

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he….”

Henry Ford once said:

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”

Your Mentality Operates on Three Levels and all of them can be found in Proverbs 23…

Guaranteeing Your Financial Future

Written by Harold Herring.

Your financial future is not based on the business or agency that writes you a paycheck whether it’s monthly or every two weeks.

Nor is your financial future secured through your knowledge of the financial markets.

Neither is your financial future safeguarded by the current contents of your retirement or investment portfolio.

None of the methods, knowledge or companies I just mentioned can promise without fail. . .your financial future.

However, there is Someone who is ready, willing and able to guarantee your financial future.

Money alone can’t & won’t guarantee your financial future. . .but God can & will.

Here are seven ways to guarantee your financial future.

1.         You must leave behind what’s familiar when God says to.

Genesis 12:1 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

Stop Doing This...If You Want That

Written by Harold Herring.

If you want to be debt free. . .you must think debt free.

If you want to be rich. . .you must be a rich thinker.

If you want to be successful. . .you must think success.

If you want to be healthy. . .you must think about having divine health.

Proverbs 23:7 says:

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. . .”

We’ll need to break some habits even though we may have had them for a while. 

There are seven things we must stop doing and seven things we must start doing if we want to be a debt free, rich, successful and healthy thinker.

First, stop looking back. . .and start planning for tomorrow.

Luke 9:62 in the Contemporary English Version says:
