Intentional Thinking~Living Positively on Purpose

Hi my friends! I am glad you’re here, again.

This journey has hit another snag and I can either choose to mourn my old way of life, or I can learn to embrace the silver lining.

Silver Lining it Is.

Soaring Above the Storm

I can do this, and I’d be happy to take this new portion of the journey with your company.

I have had the pleasure to be taught by my Spiritual Mother/Sister, Carol Pandola, this ancient truth to be SUCCESSFUL, PROSPEROUS AND HAPPY.

I call it Changing Your Mind & Improving Your Life.

The Christian community is calling it Change the Mind and Change the Life. Whatever we title it, it remains Renewing of the Mind; God’s original title for the concept.

Our group has spent the better part of this summer studying the Biblical Truths about how we think.

 The bible says and instructs a change in our thinking on many different levels. We are told to just “believe” and to “follow the commands…”, all encouragement to change what we think on, encouragement to focus on God and His plans for our lives.

 The first and foremost level is instruction on thinking; or the RENEWING of ones mind.

The books we are using and have used; Working with the Law, Power Thoughts and The Bible along with The Secret have been and will continue to be very instrumental in this journey.

  • My Dear Sweet Fellow Christians, please do not lose it over the concept of The Secret. I believe that we all may have shunned the book due to a very popular and questionable talk show host’s approach when the book’s concept surfaced again.
  • When read with an open mind you will find that the book readily and often refers to the bible and God.
  • The Secret is the Renewing of the Mind that we are continually taught and encouraged directly from God’s Word

Romans 12:2  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

So in the interest of Non-Resistance and in the words of Raymond Holliwell…

“As they strike out on a new path in Truth, the obstacles and tests will be plentiful. The wise ones will not fight the obstacles, but bless them and go on.”

“A wise man changes his mind; the fool never.” ~ Spanish Proverb

As much as I loath and reject change, as do many, I know that there is no progress in remaining too long in one place. In fact even remaining in the present too long, ensures living in the past very quickly. There is no growth without renewal.

Blessings Loves ♥

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
