This Month’s Topic: Change your life by……
Happy New Year!
If you have been a regular reader or receiver of STAR 99.1’s Insider Updates, you will notice that there is a change in look and feel with this month’s issue. We hope you like it. You can expect further changes that we are pray will add greater value to you and your family, as you seek to grow in the Grace and knowledge of our Lord.
So have you made any new commitments for 2017? If you are like most of us, though it may never be said audibly to others, you have said one or more of the things below every new year.
Or maybe like me, you have made all of these commitments. Although, you probably don’t call them a New Year’s Resolution. These are all great commitments and can provide lasting and in some cases, eternal value to us, our friends, and our families.
I am not sure if you are aware of the statistics on people keeping New Year’s Resolutions, but they are extremely low. Most people stop any resolutions by the end of the 2nd month. One study says that only 8% of people complete their resolutions each year. Wow! – Check it out here: http://www.statisticbrain.com/new-years-resolution-statistics/
Why is it that millions of people seek change, but find none?
What many people don’t realize is that to change any of the areas above or any other area of our lives, will REQUIRE more than a New Year’s Resolution, resolve or commitment. We must change who and what we are, in order to see any REAL change!
The Bible states it this way, “…as a man thinketh it his heart, so is he…” – Prov. 23:7.
Said another way, the bent of our thinking or our hearts, determines the outcomes of our life. Maybe this is why the NT Christian is commanded to be changed by changing their MINDSET. – Rom. 12:1 – 2
In this month’s podcast, “Books That Have Changed My life” I chose to focus on two books that do nothing but change the way you think about thinking. These books don’t focus much on actions, but belief. If you haven’t read them, they are easy reads, and if digested, understood, and applied, can have life changing impact upon every area of your life. The two book are listed below:
