REAL MAN MINISTRY (week 19)

POWER OF POTENTIAL lesson 3 and 4

For those of you who follow closely, you’ve noticed gaps
in my Real Man Ministry postings. Why do you think that is?
IT DOESN’T MATTER!

I’m here now, so enjoy the post. 🙂 🙂 🙂

I just read a chapter called:
YOUR LIFE HAS POTENTIAL

It described how some people make their dreams come true
because of what they ”exchange” for that dream.

Others just moan and complain because they
don’t have the money, material, or means to begin.

Successful people start where they are with what they have.
I love that!

I am making my dreams come true because I have ”exchanged”
my old way of thinking for a new way of thinking. I have renewed my
mind with the spirit of Christ. Read Ephesians 5:22-24

I no longer moan and complain because of the false belief that I don’t
have what I need to succeed.

Biblical philosophy has renewed my mind with the spirit of Christ
to where now I know that I can succeed right from where I am
and with what I have.

Limits and restrictions are self-imposed upon those
who lack knowledge and lean on worldly views.

“Exchange” that mindset for the knowledge and wisdom
found in Jesus Christ and his practicle, fundamental, logical
teachings.

The gap in these RMM postings is the fruit of frustration
and discouragement that I imposed on myself. My mind was more focused
on worldly things and less focused on the spirit of Jesus. As a result, I regressed and suffered.

Lucky for me, I have a righteous and holy wife who constantly
lifted me up in prayer. Her steadfast love and incredible patience
enabled me to find my way back to the light. The spirit of Jesus
reached me through her. Glory to Him.

At the top of this post I said, ”IT DOESN’T MATTER!”
I was going to leave it at that. I didn’t want to discuss
my frustration and discouragement.

But I did. Because I think it’s important to understand
how fast bad thinking can impact your life if your not constantly
renewing your mind with the spirit of Christ.

Please conclude the reading of this post by dusting off your Bible and
reading Ephesians 3:16-19

May the spirit of Christ bless your life.
