Spiritual Foundations

“Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace, be still!’ And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.” (Mark 4:39, NKJV)

 “A storm is coming.”

How do you respond to life's storms?

Jesus was in a boat on open water when a massive storm arose… and then the most remarkable thing happened…

Tip of the Week

What kind of day you have is up to you. A good way to get a grip on this is to Journal.

I use Day One and a template with questions.

You might use the 5 Minute Journal, or John Lee Dumas’s Freedom Journal (highly recommended!)

What to do: Get a journal. Take a look at TheFreedomJournal.com

  • May I suggest that #7 read:
    “I will spend less than I earn, give a first portion back to God (it’s all His anyway) and invest wisely.”

  • I don’t see the transcripts….Great Calls, so glad I started listening to your calls again! Thank you! Just thank you!!

  • This was a GREAT episode, Ray. Thank you. You never know when something is going to resonate but these struck me hard. I added one and modified another.

    • Today, in everything, I will do the right thing. I know within me what that is and I will do it.
    • Today, I will make good decisions quickly with the information I have at the time, the wisdom I’m blessed with and my life’s experience. Then I will be at peace with my decision.
  • Thanks Ray! Great episode. I was encouraged and challenged, and saved your directives to Evernote so I can work on making them mine.

    I’m especially challenged by #6, and am working on being very careful using my tongue for only what I DO want to end up experiencing. Ties very nicely with Jesus’ command to the wind & waves as you spoke of in the Spiritual Foundations segment. Thanks again!
