Learning To Be Grateful For It All?

If we are not careful, we will waste a great deal of our lives getting caught up in and wasting time playing the blame game. The problem with playing the blame game, is just that – it’s a game and it really does not accomplish anything meaningful in our lives.

Instead of getting caught up in and distracted by the blame game, we need to see people for what they really are. Good people help us to experience happiness. Bad people provide us with experience. Ugly people teach us a lesson. And the Best people bless us with memories.

They say that a person is blessed if they can count on one hand thier good friends. Good friends give us someone to share life with and they help us enjoy the good and survive the bad. Good friends not only bring us happiness, they give us someone to share happiness with and that makes the gift of happiness even more special.

“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Live long enough and we will encounter bad people, who do bad things to try and cause us to have a bad life, but we don’t have to empower them to call the shots in our lives, instead we can take the bad and let it remind us of what really matters, so that we don’t miss what is really important in life.

There are a group of people that come and go in our lives that can be considered ugly people and it is their desire to destroy us, kill our dreams and rob us of the beatiful gift of life, but if we choose, we can learn from the things they do and say to try and steal, kill and destroy all that is good and blessed. They key here is not to get defeated or distracted, but to learn whatever lesson life is teaching through this challenge and we will be so much better for it.

The best people are the ones that we get to share life. We take the good and the bad and walk through it all together. These people make life worth the living and enable us to face and take whatever comes our way. With these people, we are blessed with the beautiful gift of creating and sharing precious memories…

Good, bad or ugly – be grateful for it all and you will discover the best and the blessed you were created for…

Steps To Solving The World’s Problems!

The world we live in today is in a big ole mess. I recently heard a news commentator exclaim that “God can’t help us!, but that we can help one another, if we will just start to love.” The problem with his statement is this: We cannot give to anyone else what we do not posses for ourselves. In order for us to share love with someone else, we must first have a source of love that we can receive from, so that we might share. The good news is that we do in fact have a source, because the Scriptures teach us that “GOD IS LOVE!”

Love is the beautiful gift that God has blessed each of His children with, but what we do with that love is a choice that each of us makes for ourselves. While love is a very beautiful thing, it is a somewhat useless thing, if it is not received and shared. Love discovers its power and purpose when it is given away. Love becomes a miraculous and powerful force when it is allowed to flow into and through our lives. It flows through our recceiving and sharing. In this way our Creator is glorified and we are all blessed.

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” -Joh 13:34

Live your life in such a way that you become an expression of God’s love. It is more important to show people you love them, than to tell them you love them. May our actions and reactions become exxpressions of love.

Live your life in such a way that you become a channel of God’s love. Open your heart, mind and spirit to receive God’s love. You are loved and it is God’s love that makes you worthy, so stop fighting that battle already. Once you receive God’s love, make sure that you are sharing all that you are getting from His love = grace, mercy forgiveness restoration and blessing by allowing it to flow to you and through you. Becoming a channel of love allows you to fulfill your created purpose, experience the miraculous and brings you great personal fulfillment…

It’s About Time To Stop Wasting Time!

Have you ever stopped to think about how much time we waste on stuff that really does not matter? I call this stuff that we waste our time on the “nonessentials”. This is the stuff that has no eternal significance and no real ultimate meaning. One of my professors in college called it “puff and fluff”.

Think about it for a moment – how much time do you spend on stuff that really does not matter? How much time do you waste being distracted by things that do absolutly nothing for your soul? We allow way to much stuff to come into our lives and eat away at what really matters from the inside-out.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” Ecclesiates 3:1-8

It is past time to begin distancing yourself from the unproductive stuff that wastes your prescious commodity of time. Time is one of those things that we all have a limited supply of. I don’t care how much money you have, you cannot buy anymore time. What you got you got and that’s it!

On one side of tracks of life you have the stuff that does not really matter, the time wasters, life suckers and blessing thieves. On the other side of your life you have the things that do really matter, the blessings, the growth and your purpose. Every moment of everyday you make a decison about which side of the tracks you are going to live on.

Stop letting fear, misunderstanding and negativity keep you from experiencing the strength, growth and positivity you were created for. You were created for this miraculous experience called life, so that you might learn, grow and develop into the amazing creation that you are.

From your Spirit, learn to:

1.) Embrace all that you are and all you were created for.

2.) Enjoy this miraculous experience called life for all it has to offer.

3.) Experience the joy that comes from really living by getting the most out of every moment…
