“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more commonplace than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not: unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge
Sometimes we just need to take a leap of faith. This means that we need to let go of all that ever was. Our perception is based on everything that we have ever known, this keeps us safe. Or so we perceive. When we are taught to believe that dreams don’t come true we tendContinue reading “Sometimes, We Just Need To Take A Leap Of Faith…”
Once upon a time I was in a group meeting at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center as a Behavioral Health Tech., our amazing therapist on site walked in the room and began handing out papers. This was nothing new for him, but this test that I almost declined to take had a life changingContinue reading “What is the Enneagram”
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-10 KJV
When the universe is fighting against us, most of us are only aware of its action, we don’t see behind the scenes. The dominos effect that exists, it places everything where God intended it to be. If you are anything like me, you are pleading for God’s will to be done, which is acceptance! That’sContinue reading “Tribulation Is Service Work”
“If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty; If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous. Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.”
Job 8:5-7 KJV
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”
It seems like the older I get, the shorter the days. I go to work, I come home, I make dinner, and it is time to go to bed. On my days off, I must prioritize between what I want and what is needed. I used to, do, do, do, and I could never getContinue reading “Change Your View, To Change Your World”
“If you do not believe fully in what I say then I will request you not to accept it but leave it. But if you accept it and do not understand me properly then there is bound to be friction among us although it may be friendly nature.” Mahatma Gandhi
You have God walking with you, waiting for you to relinquish the weight so that he can move the mountain, that you will drink from his water to be sure that you shall never want again but instead be satisfied.
Our God isn’t a wasteful God, all that your going through today will be used for the kingdom. Give your pain to lift someone up, so the love of God can be returned to you. Our God is a faithful God that knows we need each other as we need him, that he designed love to conquer sorrow.
If you do not love yourself, your self-image will always be shackled to how others see you. Your self-image will be ever so wavering. You will find yourself lost in self-sacrifice, losing your identity. Step out into position, what’s inside of you is the master of your life that has gifts to give to the world. Not one of us was meant as any less than the other, we just haven’t found the beauty that is only gifted to us.
Your life was predestined. You were born with a mission of balancing your characteristics. You were born with suffering attached to your life to give you purpose, pursuit, courage, and character. You were predestined to find peace in the sorrows and radical joy in the gifts bestowed. What is your purpose? Are you truly embracing the gifts?
The silent struggles of those that risked their lives for our beautiful country. To never underestimate the freedom of love, it may just be someone that fought for our lives, but regardless they fought for the lives of us all. Happy Veteran’s Day! Thank you for your service! God bless!
