Give Great Effort to Pursuing Good Goals (Vita. Consilio. 01.11.17)

VC011117

When I was a child, one of my uncles showed me how to ride a bike. He thought it would be a cool idea to test my skills out on the gravel and dirt roads between his house and my grandmother’s house. I can’t say I was good at it, but it was fun after I got the hang of it.

One of the things he told me about bike riding is that you can’t focus on the obstacles. Every little rock or piece of glass in the road isn’t going to puncture your wheels. You have to stay focused on where you’re going, not what you’re trying to avoid. Read more…

You Don’t Have to Work a Day in Your Life (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 235)

You Don’t Have to Work a Day in Your Life

Romans 11:6 (NLT)
And since it is through God’s kindness, then it is not by their good works. For in that case, God’s grace would not be what it really is—free and undeserved.

Ask the average person what it would take to go to Heaven and you’re bound to get a thousand different answers. Some might say that one has to work extremely hard. Others might say that one has to give to charity on a regular basis, help the poor in any way possible, feed the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Other people might say that one has to be kind, loving, patient, and generous. Still others might say that your good deeds must outweigh your bad ones before you can enter the pearly white gates.

Life doesn’t require that you do magic tricks, but the very least you can do is try — make an effort to achieve.

Blame leaves us with no responsibility and no responsibility means we don’t have to put in an effort because the outcome won’t be our fault.

Most of us don’t make the changes that we should, not because we can’t, but because we don’t try at all.

3 More Things to Help You Make Big Changes (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 209)

3 More Things to  Help You Make  Big Changes

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
— Socrates

Fear can be crippling. Fear of the present, of the future, of the unknown, of rejection, and of many other things can cause us to be paralyzed and feel imprisoned. When we become paralyzed, we are ineffective and our life is unfulfilled.

Fear of change can cause us to be frustrated. It can push us into a corner, cause us to cower under pressure, and bind up our minds into thinking we’re not good enough, not smart enough, not worthy enough. It can keep us from moving forward. And not moving forward is a dangerous position to be in. Read more…

God and People Together (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 177)

God and People Together

1 Corinthians 15:58 (NLT)
So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

God can do anything He desires to do in the world. He really doesn’t need us to accomplish His will in the earth. But He chooses to work alongside humans; He selected us to be His co-laborers. It takes both God and us to produce the good things that God ultimately wants to see done in the world and in our lives. It takes more than one, it takes two — God and people together. Read more…
