Sometimes To Make Progress, You Have To Go Back (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 359)


“Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.”
— John Dewey

When each year begins to wind down, most of us make special efforts to make plans for the future. We create resolutions. Put up new calendars in our office or home. Begin a new journal or planner. Write out our long term goals and chart a path to get there. Answer the question, “Where do you see yourself at the end of the year?” is a tool that allows us to gain clarification. Read more…

Let Go and Get to the End (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 335)


Philippians 3:14 (NLT)
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

We only have a limited amount of time, money, resources, and energy to do what we have been called to do in this life. Too often, we allow ourselves to get focused on what is behind us, what we have been through or are going through at the present moment, how someone has or is treating us or saying about us, or the environment in which we were brought up in, keep us back from focusing on the right things.

The Future Is Under Someone’s Control (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 303)


Job 12:10 (NLT)
For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being.

One of the greatest commonalities among all mankind is that we fear. Fear is a universal indicator that we are human. The greatest thing that we fear is the future. We fear the future for the sake of our families, our friends, our careers, and our own personal livelihood. And we fear largely because we are not in control. Read more…

Stop Focusing Only On Today (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 290)


(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #22)

“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
— Alan Lakein

There is value in a good plan. The people who succeed the most are those who understand how to think, develop, and work a good solid plan that is effective not just for today, but for days, months, and years to come. This does not mean they don’t take time to have fun and be spontaneous, but serious pursuits deserve a plan. Read more…

Past and Gone (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 208)

Past and Gone

Philippians 3:13 (NLT)
No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead…

Do you find yourself thinking or talking about the past? Have you ever had a wise friend to tell you it’s best to let it go? Do you worry about what happened years ago to the neglect of what is happening now or could happen in the future? The past is part of our lives but it should not be intended to control our lives.  Read more…

Plans for Good (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 168)

Plans for Good

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Insecurity and fear are mainstays in our society. If we’re not careful, they can overtake our lives. Too often we give permission to fear and allow it to ruin our confidence and hinder us from pursuing our purpose. God did not create us to give in to the grip of these emotions. God has amazingly good plans for us that we have yet to see realized. Read more…
