When Some People Need to Exit (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 318)

when-some-people-need-to-exit

2 Corinthians 6:17 (NLT)
Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.

One of the most difficult things for most of us to do is to let go of something that has become familiar and comfortable but is no longer serving a useful or beneficial purpose. It’s kind of like an old pair of shoes that have holes in the bottom. You love them because your feet have grown so comfortable in them, but they are no longer serving the purpose for which they were made. Read more…

Be Grateful For the Friend Who Challenges You (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 301)

be-grateful-for-the-friend-who-challenges-you

“Much of the vitality in a friendship lies in the honoring of differences, not simply in the enjoyment of similarities.”
— Unknown

At one point or another in our lives, we all develop friendships with at least one other person. While most of us tend to become friends with those who are like us, there is always that one friend who seems to almost never go with you on anything. Yet, they love you the same way your other friends do and root for you to succeed at every opportunity. Read more…

3 Complete Signs You’re Moving Forward (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 126)

3 Complete Signs You’re Moving Forward

“If you don’t live a life in service of a greater good, you’ve gotta at least die a death in service of a greater good, you know?”
— John Green

Like air, water, and food, growth is a fundamental human need. We consider something to be developmentally wrong when a young child is not progressing physically at certain stages. Likewise, there can be a stunting of growth when no real progress is being made over a significant period of time. Progress is growth. Growth is progress. The two go together. One cannot exist without the other. If you are moving forward, it means you are seeing real results and are taking action steps toward your goals.  Read more…

Cut Toxic Friends (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 49)

Cut Toxic Friends

“People inspire you, or they drain you – pick them wisely.”
— Hans Hensen

There are good friends, and then there are toxic friends. If we’re honest, we’ve only got about two, or three, or four really, really good, ride-or-die friends. These are our go-to buddies, they know us, they like us, they support us, they love us on our good days and our bad days. Sickness and health, thick and thin — these few good friends are there by our side. We should be thankful for them and love them back forever.  Read more…

Should I Forgive Someone Who Has Not Asked for Forgiveness?

askdanni2

DEAR DANNI: I have a friend who used to say all kinds of mean things to me and about me. She never apologized for any of it. But recently she seems to have changed and I want her to know that I notice the changes. Should I forgive someone who has not asked for forgiveness but who has at least demonstrated that she is sorry by her actions?
-To Forgive or Not to Forgive in Mississippi

DEAR TO FORGIVE OR NOT TO FORGIVE IN MISSISSIPPI: Forgiving someone who has offended or hurt you, whether that person has asked for forgiveness or not, is more about you being at peace with yourself than about them. Forgiveness is more about our attitude toward the situation, not necessarily about the person’s action. Read more…
