Thoughts I Live By

James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Isa. 41:13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

James 1:5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 

Ps. 100:1 — Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

2 Ne. 2:25 — Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.

D&C 82:10: I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise.

Ether 12:6 And now I, Moroni would speak somewhat concerning these  things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped  for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye  receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.

D&C 121 v 35-39: 35 Because their hearts are set so much upon the things of this world, and aspire to the honors of men, that they do not learn this one lesson—

36 That the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness.

37 That they may be conferred upon us, it is true; but when we undertake to cover our sins, or to gratify our pride, our vain ambition, or to exercise control or dominion or compulsion upon the souls of the children of men, in any degree of unrighteousness, behold, the heavens withdraw themselves; the Spirit of the Lord is grieved; and when it is withdrawn, Amen to the priesthood or the authority of that man.

38 Behold, ere he is aware, he is left unto himself, to kick against the pricks, to persecute the saints, and to fight against God.

39 We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion.

“If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” ~Henry Ford

If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own. ~Henry Ford
