There Is A Difference

There is a difference between freedom & entitlement. There is a difference between capitalism & greed. There is a difference between helping & enabling. There is a difference between patriotism & politics. There is a difference between God & church. What is the difference? One is Pure… & one is rooted in fear. Can you guess which one is which? Can we tell the difference between them in our everyday lives? And most importantly do we have the fortitude to do what’s Right when push comes to shove? The goal for today: know what’s Right… & then do it! Have a great day everybody!

Harder… Or Easier?

Someone asked me why their life was getting harder now that they were trying to live Right. When we are living wrong, we can’t face our problems, so they piled up on us; but when we are trying to live Right, we are more prepared to face them & handle them. So if you are trying to put your life back together & it seems to be getting harder instead of easier… hang in there, it’s just a phase of your development & if you stay the course, you will win out & it will get easier. The goal for today: keep going, because in the eye of the storm lies perfect peace! Have a great day everybody!

Live Strong

Most people would agree that “happiness is an inside job”… but how many of us can honestly say we are living that way? Anger & frustration, fear & anxiety, misery & depression… these things don’t add up to happiness & if we are experiencing them with regularity… that means we must not be seeking happiness from within. It’s time to stop speaking in cute cliches, while practicing fear & powerlessness. It’s time to take action & live by spiritual principles. The goal for today: don’t just talk strong… live strong! And if you don’t know how… ask! Have a great day everybody!

Always!

I like being reminded that failure, just like most things in life, is a choice. There is ALWAYS a solution… & therefore, the only way to fail at anything is to give up. I am currently experiencing one of those stubborn problems that doesn’t want to budge; but it’s going to have to… because I will not give up! Fear tries to convince me that certain problems can’t be solved… but now my heart knows better. The goal for today: don’t let fear tell you lies; follow your heart, find the Truth & never give up… because there is always a solution! Have a great day everybody!

Yes You Can!

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way” ~Unknown. Think about the life you have lived. Think about the hundreds of times you have accomplished things you thought you couldn’t do. And then think about how good it felt to achieve some of those seemingly impossible goals. Now stop saying “I can’t”… because it simply isn’t true. You can… & you will conquer any & all challenges that come your way, once you want something bad enough to put your whole heart into it. The goal for today: know that with faith, courage & fortitude… the world is yours! Have a great day everybody!

Fortitude

“Fortitude is the marshal of thought, the armor of the will, and the fort of reason” ~Sir Francis Bacon. Fortitude is defined as courage in the face of true adversity. So, when the shit hits the fan… will I look to God to govern my thoughts? Can I line my will up with God’s? And once the mind is right & the heart is willing… will I have the strength & courage to follow my God given reason & do what’s Right? That may sound like a tall order, but we all have that strength & courage in us… we were born with it. The goal for today: strength… courage… God! Have a great day everybody!

You ARE Ready!

When life is just too much… when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders… that’s when our faith gets tested. There is no such thing as an unsolvable problem & there is no problem too big for God. But the most important thing to remember is that when trouble comes… it comes for a reason. The reason is that our heart is ready to face that problem. The old saying that God won’t give us anything we can’t handle is true… but it is our own hearts that tell God we are ready to handle it. The goal for today: when trouble comes, know that it came because you ARE ready! Have a great day everybody!
