The Labyrinth of Life (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 316)

the-labyrinth-of-life

James 5:11 (NLT)
We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy.

Life is a vast labyrinth of twists and turns, starts and stops, ups and down, storms and clear passages. All of us no matter who we are or what we have are called to pass through this way. At every turn is the opportunity to make a choice. Some of the choices we make will be good while others inevitably will be bad. Good choices will end in good results while bad choices will end in certain pain or suffering. Read more…

resentment-only-destroys-you

Job 5:2 (NLT)
Surely resentment destroys the fool, and jealousy kills the simple.

Resentment is a potent mix of anger, fear, and disappointment.

7 Ways You’re Holding Yourself Back

“Stop holding yourself back. If you aren’t happy, make a change.”
— Unknown

At one point or another in our lives, we all hit bumps in the road. These bumps cause our progress to stop temporarily, dry up our creativity, turn a positive attitude soar, and halt our motivation to be productive. As it turns out, it is at these times in our lives that we discover that the only thing keeping us stuck is not the bumps in the road, but ourselves. We don’t realize that we are our own roadblock, keeping ourselves from getting to where we want to go. Read more…

CEO of Happiness (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 47)

CEO of Happiness

“There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.”
— Lady Blessington

How many times have you heard that you’re in charge of your own happiness? One? Two? Or too many to count? Many times, we hear this and it sounds good, but for some reason we don’t act on it. We still look to another human being or to some inanimate object (like food or money) to make us happy. And sometimes people and things do bring us happiness, but it’s only temporary. Read more…

Have You Been Through the Fire?

No, I’m not talking about a literal fire. I hope you haven’t been through something so tragic. I’m talking about another kind of fire. These are fires that we all face at one point or another on life’s journey. Perhaps, you have been through the fire of discouragement? Negativity? Difficult problems? Delayed dreams? Deferred hope? Sometimes, we go through tough times, not for them to hurt us, but for them to test us, to see what we’re made of.
