Renew Your Spirit

Renew a right spirit within me.
– Psalm 51:10

Here is a fragment of a verse which will bring you friends, health, happiness, and success. It can improve your disposition. The word disposition refers to the manner in which you are disposed to react to situations and people. If your automatic emotional reaction is irritable, crabby, selfish, haughty, it impairs or even destroys your relationships. The quality of your disposition depends upon your inner spirit. This thought conditioner, by the use of the word "renew," implies that when you were created, you had a good disposition. If you have allowed it to deteriorate, Almighty God, who created you, can recreate and renew in you the fine balance, the controlled spirit. He can restore that vital factor in a good disposition, inner quiet control. Let no day pass after today that you do not say many times, "Renew a right spirit within me."

by Norman Vincent Peale

please pray that my 81 year-old sister Grace who just lost her husband in April will find peace and happiness in her life as she struggles with loneliness(she lives in another state than I do that is several thousand miles always, and her only child travels with her job and cannot be with her very often) - thank you

please pray that I can get through the coming up first anniversary of my husband's death. We were married 48 years.

I lost my mom in December 2012. I can understand only too well what you are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Someone out there is thinking about you...

Thank you!

where can i get a copy of his book please?

Dr. Peale published many books. Click the Shop link in the upper right corner of this page and do a search on his name, and you'll see some of his titles (note: many of the ones listed will be audio books, not print). Other of Dr. Peale's books are available from other sources, too, like Amazon: http://dld.bz/bP9hF -- and from used book stores, both online and walk-in stores.

Years ago I discovered some of Dr. Norman Vincent Peales's excerpts which make such excellent devotional lessons for church club meetings. They always stressed being positive, even though they were from different works of his. I'm wondering if you have any collection that I can purchase with these excerpts. The ones that I happened to print include: How To Build Friendships, Improve Your Prayer Life, A Wonderfl New Year, and When Faced With Grief. They usually had numbered steps, suggestions, etc. I hope you have such a collection available.

Hi Mazie. Dr. Peale published many books, but I don't know of one that fits your description precisely. Click the Shop link in the upper right corner of this page and do a search on his name, and you'll see some of his titles (note: many of the ones listed will be audio books, not print). Other of Dr. Peale's books are available from other sources, too, like Amazon: http://dld.bz/bP9hF -- and from used book stores, both online and walk-in stores.
