  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

June 24, 2013 - Your Plans Will Succeed

By Scott McChrystal

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed" (Proverbs 16:3, NIV).

Success is contagious. We draw encouragement from others who have overcome adversity and done great things.

Perhaps you're struggling at present and need to experience a few successes in your life. You can!

So, let's get started. First, check with God about your plans. Are your plans in line with His will? As you pray, He will show you. Assuming you have a green light, commit your plans to Him and act on His promise. He says when you commit your plans to Him, they will succeed.

I met a young man who dreams about becoming a Navy SEAL. I put him in touch with a Navy SEAL as a means of encouraging him. Later, the young man came to see me and told me he was applying to the United States Naval Academy. He still planned to become a SEAL.

While I don't know his future, I predict he will succeed. Why? Because I know this young man has committed his plans to God and is taking action on God's promise.

You can do the same!
