REST (Live. Pray. Hustle. 04/11/17)

REST (Live. Pray. Hustle. 04/11/17) (Right-click to download)

Those who trust in the Lord find rest for their souls. And it’s not the kind of rest as if you were sleeping. It’s the kind of rest where you feel a deep comfort and presence even when you’re not in church or in your safe zone. It’s like walking through the shadows of death but fearing nothing. It doesn’t mean you won’t experience unrest; you will — we all do. It just means that perfect rest is available to us even in the midst of the inevitable unrest.

We’ve been told that all things happen for a reason but sometimes that is hard to believe especially when you have no clue as to what the reason is and Why? Why? Why? is the question reverberating in our heads. But I’m here to tell you that nothing you experience in life is insignificant. You may not see its meaning in the moment because clarity is hard to come by in the midst of chaos. When things get chaotic, we tend to get caught up in it or start running; it’s the human physiological “fight-or-flight” reaction. But trust me, everything happens for a reason. And when the dust settles and the fog clears, that reason may become more evident. When we focus on the reason more than the experience, we develop character that produces necessary change.

Faith, at its essence, must be tested. If it is not tested, it cannot be called faith because it will be unknown what it can stand against. This means that at times, we must be broken. We must know what it is like to wrestle and battle with external and internal forces. We must understand what it means to experience pain, suffering, and heartbreak. These experiences, that if we had the power to do so, we would simply bypass in life, are meant to build our faith.

There is a misunderstanding that we will overcome all our struggles. That will not happen as long as we live for struggle is part of life. Being victorious in the struggle is very possible. And that begins with an acknowledgment that we are struggling, embracing the experience, and having the courage to face what we ultimately want to defeat.

How To Develop Resilience In Hard Times (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 339)


“The oak fought the wind and was broken, the willow bent when it must and survived.”
— Robert Jordan

We tend to talk about resilience as a trait that people are born with but that notion couldn’t be further from the truth. We aren’t born being resilient; we learn to be resilient over time. Human beings have an amazing ability to be strong even in the midst of harrowing and discouraging situations. The will to survive is far more flexible than we imagine at first glance. Read more…

Stop Wasting Everything (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 296)


(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #28)

“You know, you only get to live life once, so there are two things that that yields. One is that there’s no point in crying over spilt milk, but secondly you hate wasting time, energy, and whatever talent you’ve got.”
— David Miliband

Everything around us is limited. This is a basic principle within economics. An unlimited amount of anything does not necessarily exist. As a society, we use our resources to satisfy our wants and our needs. Our wants and needs are limitless but the goods and services we use to meet the satisfaction is not. Read more…
