Clear the Cobwebs

Suggestions from Norman Vincent Peale

Occasionally we will have a rush of new ideas on how to solve business and personal problems. Well respected media outlets pick up on the idea, great publications are made, academia surrounds it, and so on. And if you step back and look at it, it’s not very helpful. In fact we usually see incorrect or irrelevant accumulations of data that someone has thrown tea leaves into hoping for an answer. 

On the other occasions we dust off an old idea that by the way is proven, does work and has relevance. We find that favorite book and see a few dog eared pages. Some may be yellowing by now. There’s an underlined passage we’d pushed into the mind’s back reaches. And we find a source for help whose origin ranges from 100 years ago to over 2000 years ago. We don’t have to look under rocks or search the universe for new stuff. We have a lot of it already. Use it. 

I found this from Dr. Peale. It’s a collection of Bible passages to help fight negativity. There’s plenty of that going around so I hope these have some value for you:

As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.
If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief!
According to your faith be it unto you.
Faith without works is dead.
What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that
ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
If God be for us, who can be against us?
Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
