When Life Doesn’t Go Your Way… Don’t Settle For Less

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” ~ Nelson Mandela

In reality, life should not be a journey to the grave. It should be lived on purpose with the intent for it to be an exciting adventure.

Each day, it is important to remember that, life has put you in the driver’s seat … and you can travel in any direction you choose. But, being better… having better… and living better, will require strategic moves – in the right direction.

There’s an ever-present underlying feeling that most of us have that we could be doing things better. That we’re not sure how to live life. That we’re doing things wrong. That everyone else is better.

Don’t allow those types of thoughts to cause you to over-compensate, and do too much… by forcing things to happen for you too quickly. Be good at what you do… and give better things time to happen.

Try to improve your life… but don’t feel bad when things don’t change as rapidly as you expect them to. Also, never seek comfort in anything that will cause you to be distracted from what you know your true purpose to be.

Take a moment, sometimes, and pause where you are. Soak in the current state of the room where you are. Stay in tune with your own state of mind. Just notice what it feels like to be alive… and to have life.

Now see how this moment is enough. Just as it is. Without any need for improvement. It is a wonder, and there’s no need for more. Yet when there is a need for more, if you are doing all of the little things well that are right in front of you every day… then more will happen.

Remember this simple fact: When you have done all you can to do all you can, pray about it. Prayer changes things. Put the things in GOD’s hand that seem out of reach for you. Allow GOD to change those things in His own time for you, and you will come to realize that your life will turn out to be absolutely wonderful.

 

How to Handle Money… Goals… and Spirituals Things

When times are tough, can you look to GOD for an answer to your financial woes? Does He have a financial law that applies to true Christians today? Many do not realize that GOD has promised to bless those who obey His financial law in faith!

The way GOD has structured this world; almost everyone has to spend a lot of time earning money. Some people may not like to work, but everyone likes receiving money. It makes us feel safe, powerful, and it’s the key, we believe, to getting lots of other things we need or want to make our lives happier.

Make Today A Happy Day Of Thanksgiving

Give thanks for what you are now, and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow.” ~ Fernanda Miramontes-Landeros

Thanksgiving-Dinner-4 (550x367)

Make the decision to allow your heart to be full of cheer today. You might not have everything, but for sure, you have everything you need. Be grateful for that… and never take it for granted.

On this beautiful THANKSGIVING DAY, don’t wish away your day, waiting for a better one later. This is your best day… and it’s as good as it’s going to get. Use it wisely. “This is the day the LORD has made… rejoice and be glad.”

  • Live, TODAY.
  • Be happy, TODAY.
  • Be thankful, TODAY.
  • Enjoy your life, TODAY.

“A thankful heart, is a happy heart.”

Life… it is full of give and take. Therefore, you have to find your own reason to “Give thanks” and “Take nothing” for granted.

Take a moment today, to reflect on GOD’s goodness to you. And as you pray… don’t pray just because you need something from GOD, but pray simply because you are thankful for life, and for everything else that the LORD has blessed your life with up to this moment.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! GOD Bless You.

LOVE Is What Makes A Family…

Without a family, man, alone in the world, trembles with the cold.” – Andre Maurois

The family is…a perpetual source of encouragement, advocacy, assurance, and emotional refueling that empowers us to venture with confidence into the greater world and to become all that we can be.

A happy family reading the Bible together.

It doesn’t require a sharp memory to recall those days, when my parents (Especially my Dad) must have spent sleepless nights to ensure that I felt happy and loved; that I got better when I didn’t feel well, or at ease when I was burdened with troubles. My father, who was a preacher (Yes… I’m a P.K.) walked through the house most nights checking on the entire family… to make sure all of us were as comfortable as possible. Both parents were quick to forgive me for the countless number of blunders I committed during the growing years of my life – even when I was punished for them. Yet, apart from teaching me forgive and forget lessons, they were always there for me, when I needed them the most. Continue reading LOVE Is What Makes A Family…
