I’m sorry means I won’t do it again. I’m grateful means I will give freely of myself to others with the blessing I have received. These are two terms that I used very loosely most of my life. I would “say” I was sorry (because I was afraid I’d end up alone if I didn’t), but then continue to chronically repeat the same mistake, proving that I wasn’t really sorry. I would “say” I was grateful (because I wanted you to see how wonderful my life was – lol), but then hoard my blessings to myself, proving that I wasn’t really grateful. If I’m truly sorry… I will change. If I’m truly grateful… I will help others. The goal for today: prove it! Have a great day everybody!
I was asking God what I should write about today when I got a message from a friend saying… “Can you write about prayer today?”… hmmm, coincidence? I could write an entire novel on this topic, but I try to keep these messages brief… so if you have any questions or would like additional info on the topic, please feel free to comment or message me.
The first thing I ask of God is that He direct my thinking. This will insure that no negative thoughts enter into my process; I never want to start my day off with a negative & God will NEVER direct my thinking to a negative. So if my thoughts are negative, it’s because I’m not letting God direct them… guaranteed! Next, I should focus on sincerity. Understanding what I’m praying for & meaning it with my whole heart… is also essential to powerful prayer; when I simply memorize & recite prayers… they have no real power. Last, but certainly not least is… unselfishness. Selfish prayers NEVER get answered, so if prayer doesn’t seem to be working for me… I can be guaranteed that my prayers are selfish in some way shape or form & I need to correct that if I want the right results. In short… God lives in my heart, wants me to help others & guarantees my happiness if I do so, sincerely & unselfishly. The goal for today: learn how to pray properly & start getting all that God wants for us out of life! Have a great day everybody!
***DISCLAIMER: this is not a political statement… it’s about personal responsibility.
If you see a child in need should you call your congressman… or should “YOU” help them? If someone can’t afford to see a doctor should you call your congressman… or should “YOU” help them? If a family doesn’t have money for food should you call your congressman… or should “YOU” help them? I am sick & tired of all the pissing & moaning & bitching & whining about how our government isn’t doing it right, when they shouldn’t be doing it at all! If we the people didn’t put our lives in the governments hands, they couldn’t do it wrong. The goal for today: know that our problems will get solved when “WE” love our neighbor, rather than asking our government to love them for us! Have a great day everybody!
If the only person you are worried about helping today is you… then you’ve missed the whole point & purpose of life. All throughout time, a blatant disregard for the welfare of others has been the cause of mans downfall. Every society that has crumbled, every empire that has collapsed, every act of war or terror, all have one key element in common… self-centered fear. Someone was afraid they weren’t going to get what they needed… so they took yours too. Trying to survive at the expense of others is the best way to end us all. The goal for today: help others… because real self-preservation can only be brought about by Unselfishness! Have a great day everybody!
“We can be alone at perfect peace and ease” ~Anon. This is a written guarantee in a book designed to solve ALL of our problems. I was never at perfect peace and ease… especially not when I was alone. I would lose my mind if I had to be alone for too long. For example: when it was time to go to bed & the rest of the world was asleep, I was up staring at the ceiling wishing I could just turn my brain off. There is a solution! Find the thoughts that torment you, pinpoint the fear that’s driving them & let me & God show you how to make peace with them so they can never harm you again. The goal for today: perfect peace & ease! Have a great day everybody!
If we want to find the solution to things like anxiety, depression, suicide, abuse, addiction, violent crime, etc… etc… we must first find the real cause. I’ve spent the past decade & a half studying these problems, pinpointing the cause, and helping people resolve these issues. The most important piece of information that I have uncovered as I listened to people’s troubles is that they are all, every one of them, rooted in fear. And they’re aren’t hundreds of different fears… there is only one. I’m afraid I’m going to lose or not get love. The goal for today: know that the joy of GIVING love, eliminates the fear of not GETTING love… & heals the world! Have a great day everybody!
My friend Ashley made a statement yesterday about personal responsibility & it really struck a chord with me. We live in a world that is currently riddled with problems & everybody has a great idea about how “somebody else” can help you. Most of my life I was afraid to help people because I didn’t know how… then I enlisted in the military & they reminded me that ignorance is no excuse. Im saying this because we have too many problemed people & not enough problem solvers. The goal for today: if you don’t know how to help somebody… LEARN… because we ALL have a responsibility to help! Have a great day everybody!
