It has been said that as Christians, we live under Grace and not under the Law. This is true, and I rejoice in it.
Some gleefully proclaim that our only requirement of those “living under Grace” is the one commandment of Jesus, of which He said, “This is my commandment: that you love one another.” That sounds nifty. But it’s not easy…
We often treat the future as if it’s a mystery. As if we don’t have a say in it, or any control if it. And while there is some truth in that, there is a deeper truth also.
We get to choose how we see the future, and the choice we make has a profound influence over the outcome we experience. This episode shows you 5 powerful ways to see the road ahead.

You want the coming new year to be your best year ever. What are the most important factors to ensure that’s what happens?
Surprisingly, focusing on just 3 factors can dramatically improve your chances of making the coming year the best you have ever experienced. I plan to focus on these primary areas as I enter the new year. I encourage you to join me.
Tomorrow has been stolen from us. Fear permeates the media, as we are deluged with endless messages about murder, betrayal, violence, rape, and horrifying acts of inhumanity.
And those are just the “entertainment” shows. Don’t get me started on the “news”. All of these negative messages, images, and ideas have slowly drained us of our hope for the future. Stolen away our tomorrow. I’m here to say it’s time to take back tomorrow. And here’s how to start…
Can we be honest for a second? It’s not easy making progress against our big goals, is it?
Today more than ever there are a million things competing for our attention and I don’t know about you, but life often feels chaotic.
It’s the time of year when we all start to think about making resolutions and setting goals for the new year… and we’re either happy about it, or cynical.
This week Michael Hyatt is my guest, and he offers a fresh perspective on setting goals. By the way, if you haven’t seen the fabulous free video training Michael is giving away on how to make 2015 “your best year ever”, click here right now and get access to those videos!

Chances are, you’re thinking about 2015, and how you can make a “fresh start” in the new year.
The very end of the year is the perfect time to set your objectives for the coming year. But there’s a danger in doing this, as well.
The danger is “Resolution Syndrome” – the fact that most New Year’s Resolutions don’t work. most resolutions have been broken before January is over.
And we all know the cycle…
It shocked me to discover many Christians believe it is wrong to set goals.
The argument for this belief comes from the book of James in the New Testament. James, the brother of Jesus, says this…
We would probably be a lot happier if we could manage to think about what we’re doing, at the time we’re doing it.
Recently, I was very nearly run down by a woman driving a minivan in a grocery store parking lot.
As I watched my apparent doom racing toward me, I clearly saw that she (the driver) was looking away from the windshield, apparently fascinated by something inside the cabin of her vehicle.
Fortunately, I narrowly (miraculously) escaped an intense encounter with her front bumper. I shouted, she looked shocked, and we both went our way.
“What was she thinking?” I wondered.
The simple answer is: she was thinking about something other than what she was doing.
It seems to me we spend a lot of time thinking about things other than what we’re doing: checking e-mail while we’re talking on the phone, talking on the phone while we’re driving our car, reading while eating, and so forth.
Perhaps we would be happier (not to mention safer) if we could simply manage to do what we are doing when we are doing it.
