NEW DR. PEALE VIDEO FOR APRIL 20, "EXCITED LIVING FOR EXCITED PEOPLE"
Dr. Peale once wrote: "Once when I was sitting ina hotel coffee shop having an early breakfast alon, with the morning paper in front of me, reading all the gloomy news of the day, in came a man and, with a cheerful good morning to the cashier at the door and to the waiters, came walking through the place, saw me and apparently knew me, for he pulled up a chair, asking, "May I sit down with you?" Before I could say yes or no, there he was. He shook out his napkin and exclaimed, "Boy, this is going to be another great day!"
I was astonished to hear that kind of conversation so early in the morning. I saked, "How do you know it's going to be a great day."
"Because," he answered, "the good God makes it that way with our cooperation."
"I gather you've had many good days," I said to him.
"Oh, yes," he assured me, "I actually haven't had a bad day since I learned a great spiritual truth."
"And what might that be," I saked.
"I learned that if I pass a series of expectancy thoughts through my mind every morning, God will bring my great expectations to pass. Oh," he looked at me and smiled, "I'm sure you know the secret is living with the Lord. He's great! He has the power over any day. He can bring the good out. Therefore I just go along with Him, passing expectancy thoughts through my mind."
May I ask you, my reader, a question? What kind of expectation thoughts have you in your mind right now? Don't go from day to day expecting the bad to happen -- that sickness is going to overtake you or things are not going to work out well. Don't do that. Turn yourself and live! Everyday begin the day with the Lord Jesus Christ and pass expectancy thoughts through your mind -- and you will for a fact turn yourself and live as never before."
Join us at the Peale Library for the sermon video "Excited Living for Excited People" it will be shown throughout the day on April 20. The exhibits and prayer chapel will also be open.
