Thought for the Day...

Came across this in A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Servants this week and thought that it might be as helpful to some of you as it ha been for me during times of ministry and prayer.  While it does tend to be a bit humanistic, there is still some really good truth here to be heard.
"And you too, Youthful reader, will realize the vision (not the idle wish) of your heart, be it base or beautiful, or a mixture of both, for you will always gravitate toward that which you, secretly most love.  Into your hands will be placed the exact results of your own thoughts; you will receive that which you earn; no more, no less.  Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal.  You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration...
     "In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result.  Chance is not.  "Gifts," powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort; they are thoughts completed, objects accomplished, visions realized.
     "The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart -- this you will build your life by, this you will become."
- As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

This weekend Calvary will be hosting the neighborhood for dinner and a movie as we show the Jesus Film.  If you live in the area please join us.


I just wanted to say thank you to George for helping me to get this site set up and teaching me everything he knows about computers (which took about 3 minutes).  There is a link to his blog to the right so be sure to check out his space as well.
