New Year Reflections: Are You Thinking Big Enough?
Each day is a new day with new possibilities. I know it’s easy to get swallowed up in a million little details and issues, but I need to ask you: are you thinking big enough today?
Our mind and our attitude carry so much weight in terms of potential positive outcomes – it’s amazing! We put our trust in God, get up and jump in.
I just read through John Maxwell’s little book called, The Power Of Thinking Big. Here are some ways you may want to think bigger today:
TRUST IN CHRIST
“The chief way you and I are disloyal to Christ is when we make small what he intended to make large.” – E. Stanley Jones
TRY SOMETHING NEW
“If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always gotten.” – John Maxwell
TAKE A SHOT
“Safe living generally makes for regrets later on.”
A BIG DAY FULL OF OPPORTUNITIES
“The best cure for a sluggish mind is to disturb it’s routine.”
LOTS OF POTENTIAL IN PEOPLE AROUND YOU
“See your people as they could be, not as they are.” – John Maxwell
WHAT IS YOUR CAUSE
“People will work eight hours a day for pay, ten hours a day for a good boss and 24 hours a day for a good cause.”
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Phil 4:13
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. Matthew 21:22
