A New Direction

by Maurice Lindsay on May 4, 2014

Post image for A New Direction

I’m sure many of you have noticed that I don’t publish many new posts these days like I used to. I’ve been wanting to write more but I have been going through a major transformation in my faith walk with God and i didn’t want to start writing about it until I was certain of the direction that God was leading me.

Now I am sure and I am ready to start publishing regular again.

But I will not be writing about the same topics that you are used to reading from me. Although I love the field of personal development; the study of it has become pointless in my life. Click Here to Keep Reading..

Are You Committed?

by Maurice Lindsay on March 31, 2014

Post image for Are You Committed?

In this “me first” culture that we live in today, it’s no wonder why anything that requires commitment is massively failing.

  • The increase of the divorce rate
  • The increase of fatherless and motherless children
  • The increase of people giving up on their dreams and life’s calling

These are all signs of saying one thing, but as times get rough, doing the opposite. Click Here to Keep Reading..

How to Be Happy Right Now

by Maurice Lindsay on March 4, 2014

Post image for How to Be Happy Right Now

I’ve finally had time to read and respond to a lot of my reader’s emails this weekend and to my surprise — the most common issue I came across from reading your emails were people asking me how to be happy?

Normally, when I read my subscriber emails, the most common questions I get are how to overcome an addiction, how to start a blog, or how to develop more faith in God — but never how to be happy.

I guess that’s because 95% of my readers (YOU) are Christians. And as Christians, we have a tendency to front and pretend we are happy because the joy of the lord is suppose to live within us at all times.

But what do you do when you love the lord with all your heart and you’re still not happy in life? Click Here to Keep Reading..

5 Ways To Turn A Bad Day Into A Good Day!

Post image for 5 Ways To Turn A Bad Day Into A Good Day!

I really hate when I hear preachers or christians in general telling people “If you give your life to God, you won’t have to worry about anything every again, all of your days will good from here on out”.

What is all of that about?

If you’ve been a christian for any amount of time, you already know that this is not true. Bad days are inevitable. No one is exempt from them. They come to good people, bad people, rich people, poor people, black people, and white people. You may come across people who appear to be living the perfect life and everyday seems bliss for them, but behind the scenes, I assure you that they have bad days too.

Even me, as a personal development author and youth mentor, who teaches people how to live a better life, I have bad days all the time lol. But there are a few things that I do to turn my bad days into good days and I want to share them with you below: Click Here to Keep Reading..

The Courage To Think Differently

by Maurice Lindsay on February 4, 2014

What do you do when you hear an idea or belief that’s different from yours?

Do you reject it and write it off as non-sense or do you check to see if there is some merit?

Most people are very stubborn when it comes to their beliefs, especially us christians. All of our lives, we’ve been trained to think a certain way about God and told that if anything differs from what we’ve been taught — it’s a sin. And most of us carry these childhood beliefs into our adulthood, without ever challenging or attempting to discover what christianity is all about for ourselves.

I’ve known many people, some who are much older than I am, that go to church every single day without ever missing a service, but still don’t know who God is. They just go to church because that’s what they’ve been taught to do and they don’t want to disappoint their parents. But they don’t ever read their bibles or spend anytime with God so they don’t know if what the pastor is preaching to them is actually in the bible or not. Therefore everything they do in Jesus name goes in vain because they don’t have a real relationship with God.

Crazy Huh? Who would want to live like that? What’s the purpose in going to church or calling yourself a christian if you don’t really know God. That’s like calling someone your wife or husband, and being faithful to them, but you’ve never meant before — it doesn’t make sense. But this is exactly how many people who call themselves christians are living today. Click Here to Keep Reading..
