You get better at positive thinking with body language

Let's get thinking positively and live a better life.

Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds. (Romans 12:2)

This article looks at on aspect of this: the importance of body language.

Body language is something that we are not often aware of, but it sometimes can say more than our words ever could. That is why it is so important to pay attention to body language and always be aware of what it is saying to others. Body language is the movements of your body, the way you hold your body, and facial expressions, including eye movement. It often corresponds with our attitudes and sometimes contradicts what our words are saying. When our body language and our words do not match, people are likely to believe the body language as it is often an unconscious thing that gives away the truth. When you are trying to implement positive thinking in your life, you also have to implement positive body language.

When you are truly committed …

You Get Positive Thinking From a Child’s Perspective

Perhaps the greatest teacher of positive thinking is a child. Children are the ultimate positive thinkers. They have not learned that life throws curves and that challenges are around every corner. They look at life as a big adventure. Maybe you should adopt that way of thinking. Think about a child in your life. They seem to have no fear of new things. They will try anything once. They love life and are optimistic and happy. Children love to explore the world and what life has to offer. They are willing to put themselves out there just to learn. Children have to have this amazement for life. This is how they learn and how they develop their identity. It allows them to live in a positive manner. Children do not jump to the negative because they believe there is good out there. They do not know about all the bad that the world holds because you shelter them from that. Let yourself develop that child-like faith. 
Use the influence of a child to drive your progress towards a positive at…

How To Be Happy (Today)

Share Your Light

“…Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  (Matthew 5:16) Robert had been active daily on Facebook for years. He often posted photos about the adventures he was going with his kids, how much he loved his wife, and what he was doing for his community. When Robert was injured in a job accident, he knew he’d probably never work in construction again. He’d loved the joy of working with his hands and he was disappointed that he’d have to start his career over.  A Facebook friend reached out to Robert to let him know about a small, local organization was starting up. The organization would be focused on reaching out to at-risk teens. So, Robert went to meet with the director. “As soon as Brett suggested you, I wanted to meet with you,” the director explained. “I’ve been following your posts on Facebook for a while and I know you’re the kind of mentor we need here.” Although Robert hadn’t known it at the time, the posts about his f…

Picture Pastor: how to use a hobby to share your faith

Dave Adamson shares his faith with others online using Instagram (@AussieDave).Each morning, Dave would post a photo that inspired him along with a few thoughts on a spiritual topic. By doing this, he developed a following of over 35,000 people who are eager to hear the messages he’s sharing. It can be tempting to think that you have to do something grand in order to showcase your faith. But Dave’s story illustrates that it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes, the loudest testimony is simply showing up day after day. Do make sure that what you’re doing flows from an activity that you enjoy. Then your online ministry is something you look forward to and anticipate. For Dave, he loved photography and it was a natural extension of his faith. “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” – Acts 20:28, NIV

4 Levels of Spiritual Warfare Against Demons

There are 4 basic levels which a Christian may have to face. Having the specific knowledge on what each one of these levels are all about can really help with planning and carrying out the appropriate battle strategy in which to defeat them should demons ever move in for an attack on either you or any of your close loved ones. 
Every time that Jesus told his apostles to go out and walk with his anointing to save the lost and heal the sick - He always had the command in there to also cast out demonic spirit where and when needed.
So if Jesus was constantly casting out demons, always telling the apostles to cast out demons - then it should only be logical that the church should continue to cast out demons.
It has been estimated by many Bible scholars that approximately 25% of the miracles Jesus had performed were him casting demons out of people. Satan and his demons are not confined to the Bottomless Pit at this time. This event will not happen until Jesus returns back to us in His se…

10 Steps to Christian Success

1)Spend time with Jesus Christ every single day.  I cannot stress that enough for the success minded Christian.  So often we spend our time working on things that have no bearing on our future christian success (nor any current success value) because we haven't taken the time to focus and understand what Jesus Christ wants for our lives and our success.

2)Study the Word and discover what the top five (or six) christian success priorities in your life should be.  For example, for you it might be: Christ, spouse, children, work, retirement.  For another, it might be: Christ, a hobby, work, retirement, missions work.  And for yet another: Christ, spouse, work, a hobby, physical fitness.  For each of you, christian success priorities might be a little different in the number 4, 5, or (6) spots, but the first two or three are probably Christ and family.  Once you know your success priorities, you are ready for step 3)

3)Develop a progress plan for each of your areas of top success prio…
