Life is not one straight path from here to there, although most of us wish it were like that. If it were, however, we would never get to where we could go or become who we were meant to become. Read more…

We’re told to forget about our past, to leave it behind, to not dwell on what cannot be changed. This advice should be heeded because to live in a place that cannot be redecorated or redesigned is eventually tiresome and fruitless. However, sometimes, we run too fast away from the place where we should really be sitting on the steps and learning, growing, and becoming. Our failures which we all have but rarely like to talk about are a significant part of who we are. We wouldn’t be where we are or who we are without it. No, we shouldn’t live there, but yes, we should embrace what was. The past should be a point of reference, not a place of residence.

What Seeds Are You Planting? (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 293)


Genesis 1:11 (NLT)
Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened.

Literally everything we see around us started with a seed. Things don’t just happen all of a sudden. It starts with a tiny something and then goes through the process of growth and maturation. It is during the growing period that seeds eventually turn into fruit trees. But the growing stage is so slow that we hardly realize it is there. Read more…

You’re Not There Yet, Keep Growing (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 292)


Philippians 3:12 (NLT)
I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.

Wouldn’t it wonderful if we could say at some point in our lives that we have arrived? I mean we have gotten to that place of total achievement, complete fulfillment, and ultimate perfection. It’s that point in which we are no longer growing or striving for anything. Because, well, we have everything and have done everything that’s in our time and energy span to do. Read more…

If situations are repeating themselves, it’s because you haven’t learned the lesson.


Use It or Lose It (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 196)

Use It or Lose It

“Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach.”
— Aristotle

Have you ever taught something that you learned or even developed yourself to someone else and found out that it was easier for you to remember? When you share information after you have read it or heard about it and find that it is easier to retain and bring up in conversation later? Read more…
