“Changing Always Starts With Choosing” with Pastor Rick Warren

The ability to make moral choices is one of the greatest gifts that God has given to each of us. In fact, our choices shape our lives far more than our circumstances do. This is especially true in the area of our minds. Choosing what we think about, how we think about it, and what we allow into our minds affects our lives daily. This week, Pastor Rick takes a look at the first step toward a life reset—choosing to change what we think about.

  1. Dear Respected Pr Rick. Every message so blessing to our family and church too.

  2. Love you Pastor Rick Warren. I listen to you everyday and never miss a daily devotion. I work as nurse in a hospital in San Diego and I love Blasting your God inspired words while I’m here at work. Keeps me enduring and joy full and filled. Bless you! ❤️🙏🏻

    1. Thank you for serving others in God’s name. I had a GIST tumor removed from my abdomen up here in Temecula March 4th. I had a wonderful believing nurse named Vanessa that prayed with us and held me up when I was literally on my death bed. The 7lb tumor was successfully removed praise God. Im still recovering with muscle pain from the laparotomy but Im on my way. The work you do in the name of Jesus can never be repaid fully in this life. My family retained its hope because of Vanessa. God bless you and every patient you encounter.
