The Way You Think ... Determines How You Live

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

What is the most communicable disease in the world today?

Your thoughts….

Proverbs 23: 7 says:

“As a man thinketh so is he…”

For years, I’ve taught that a debt free mentality….is not determined by where you work, where you live, what you drive, what you wear or who your parents are.   Your mentality is not determined by how smart you are but by the dominant thoughts in your mind.

Whatever thoughts you allow to dominate your life will have a direct impact on who and what you draw into your life.

Like a magnet, your thoughts will draw to you the people and circumstances that harmonize with your dominant thoughts.

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

One of the biggest reasons many Christians don’t enter into the fullness of God’s Word is that they read it as a spectator.

God asked questions. . .because He wanted His listeners to think. . .it facilitates the learning process in each of us.

Turnaround specialists are defined at turnaround.org as:

“A turnaround specialist enters a company with a fresh eye and complete objectivity. This professional can spot problems that may not be visible to company insiders and then implement solutions.

The Significance Of The Holy Spirit To Us Who Believe

Posted in RichThoughts

By Bev Herring

The one thing Harold and I desire to do as ministers of the gospel is present the Word of God in such a way that it can make your daily life better. 

If we can't practically believe in the Word and enrich our lives, then we've lost what God wanted to give us when Jesus came to earth.

Living life with the Holy Spirit's guidance should put excitement into every day. We are missing out if it doesn't.

I want to share some revelation I experienced recently because it puts our Christian life in a perspective that is new revelation to me but definitely the way I personally want to live.
