What’s Really Missing

What’s really missing… God… or a woman? God… or a fortune? God… or a career?

We all have this void inside that can only be filled by God & no matter how many people, places & things we use to try to fill it… nothing else will do.

Nothing else will satisfy the need that we all feel.

There is nothing wrong with having a woman or money or a career… until we make these things more important than God.

The goal for today: make sure that all physical things come 2nd to God!

Have a great day everybody!

Think & Feel

“Whatever I think, I feel… & I would much rather feel good” ~Jenn Coleman. 

This can be confusing, but once we get it, it changes our lives for the better, from start to finish. 

If I want to feel Right… I have to think Right first. Our thoughts control our emotions & our emotions control our actions. 

Thinking about helping others, feels good & when I feel good about the Right thought, it makes it much easier to physically go & do it. 

The goal for today: let God direct my thinking, let Right thinking bring good feelings & let good feelings ensure Right actions! 

Have a great day everybody!

Convinced

I was convinced that I wanted things that I didn’t really want. 

I thought I wanted to be angry… but I didn’t. 

I thought I wanted to be lazy… but I didn’t. 

I thought I wanted to turn my brain off… but I didn’t. 

All I really want is to be Happy… & all I have to do to achieve that goal is care about other people. 

Helping others is what we all really want to do. 

The goal for today: I want to Love people… pull my weight & use the brains that God gave me! 

Have a great day everybody!

Triggers & Temptations

There are many theories about things like triggers & temptations that cause us to do things that we shouldn’t do. 

We talk about the effect that our environment has on us & we basically claim that our lives are not under our own control. 

None of this it true! 

Triggers & temptations are wrong thoughts… & I can change them. 

Letting my past control my present is a wrong thought & I can change that too. 

The goal for today: think like a sane person… feel like a sane person & then I can act like a sane person! 

Have a great day everybody!

Aim To Be Helpful

“To be helpful is our only aim” ~Anon.

All I ever want to do is help people!

I ask God to help me be helpful to you.

I think about helping you.

I feel really good about the idea of helping you.

And once I’ve prayed about it… thought it through… & feel good about the path I’ve chosen… then I should physically carry out the act of being helpful.

Whether it’s face to face… through these writings… or indirectly when the people I help, help others… I always try to be helpful.

The goal for today: aim to be helpful!

Have a great day everybody!

Motivation

Last night I thought to myself… I need some sort of motivation to take better care of myself.

My next thought was… it’s silly to believe that I need some sort of motivation other than… it’s the Right thing to do.

Using outside props & false ideas might cause me to get up off my couch, but not for long.

Doing the Right thing for the Right reason will always bring about more real & lasting results.

The goal for today: let the Truth be the only motivation I need today!

Have a great day everybody!

Heart… Mind… Eyes

Open my Heart, my mind & my eyes.

When I open my Heart, that makes it possible for me to believe things that were once impossible to believe.

When I open my mind, I can properly process the information coming from my Heart to insure that I won’t be blindly led.

Once my eyes are open, then I can clearly see the difference between the True & the false & then proceed to CHOOSE which one I will live by.

The goal for today: spiritual… mental… physical… in that order!

Have a great day everybody!
