Easter Thoughts All Year ‘Round

…and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.
I Corinthians 15:14

He is risen! Risen…indeed!

And what’s that supposed to mean to me?
I live each day as best I can;
I reach out to my fellowman.
I sometimes slip
I sometimes sin
But I always get up and try again!
I read my Bible;
I know how to pray.
I try to walk the Christian way.
I know God cares
And I believe He sees
That the only desire of my heart is to please.
So He is risen! Risen…indeed?
Tell me–what difference does that make to me?

Well, it’s very plain it means nothing to you

For I see your hand in all you do.

He could still be dead and bound in the grave

He would not have lost His power to save.

But don’t you see? Can’t you comprehend?

The tomb was the beginning–not the end.

His death was not all He had to give–

He arose that we might have the power to live!

He is risen! He is risen indeed!
Now I see what that means to me!
It means that I died with Him that day
In some mysterious “God-planned” way;
That my hands are now His
My eyes truly see
My soul is made new
My heart is free.
The power to live is mine at last!
The days of striving and failing are past!
Praise God! At last the truth I see–

He is risen!

He lives!

He lives through me!

Be the Hero : Three Powerful Ways to Overcome Challenges in Work and Life

Noah Blumenthal

BE THE HERO YOU WANT TO BE!

At times we all feel frustrated, stressed, or out of control. What if you could be at your best when your challenges are on the rise? Well, you can. Be the Hero introduces us to the way of the “Everyday Hero” and shows how to turn self-defeating thoughts and behaviour into heroic actions. The trick is in the stories we tell ourselves.

All day long, without even realizing it, we tell ourselves dozens of stories-about other people, our situations, and ourselves-stories that shape our emotions and behaviour. These stories are so powerful, they make us think and act like either a hero or a victim. Be the Hero shows you how to choose the stories that lead to personal and professional success.

In the tradition of best story tellers, Noah Blumenthal weaves a tale that is both captivating and profound. Be the Hero is destined to become a classic.

Standing on a mountaintop in Switzerland, Jeff thought he had figured out the secret to living a great life. Eight years later he was a rising star in his company and looking forward to the birth of his first child. Then it all unraveled. Follow his extraordinary journey as he discovers what he missed on the mountain and how to recapture his success at work and in life.

How To Bounce When Others Break : The Top 10 Rules of Resilient People

Dr. Steve W. Price

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” said Dale Carnegie back in the 1930s, when the world was mired in the Great Depression.

Easier said than done.

The Great Depression broke a lot of people. Unemployment hit 25%. Fortunes were lost. Homes and businesses were foreclosed on. Dreams were dashed.

But the most resilient people survived.

Many even thrived.

Today, we’re in the toughest times since the Great Depression. And it’s likely to last for a decade, perhaps longer. The tough times ahead will test many of us. These days, resilience isn’t a nicety…it’s a necessity.

Resilience – the ability to bounce back from setbacks and adversity – has enabled ordinary people throughout history to turn tragedy into triumph.

The “Top 10 Rules of Resilient People” discussed in this book have helped countless people turn adversity into advantage. Whether your challenges are financial, emotional, or medical (or all three), read this book – and learn how you, too, can bounce…when others break.

Fuel : The Energy You Need To Succeed

Wes Beavis

A lack of energy keeps more people from success than an abundance of challenges. When it was decided to put man on the moon, rocket scientists did not turn around waiting for a break in the Earth’s gravitational force–they loaded up the rocket with enough fuel to burst right through it! You can do the same. Fill up on fuel so that you can push right through anything that holds you back. In FUEL, you will discover where to find the energy you need to succeed.
