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

let-go-and-get-to-the-end

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.

Resentment Only Destroys You (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 282)

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. Many times, we allow resentment to grow and fester in our lives because we replay an unkind word or hurt feeling over in our minds and find it hard to forgive the person or situation. We hold on to things that only cause us unspoken pain and undue stress. Some of us grew up being told it is okay to express our hurt and anger. And in some regard, it is healthy to do so, but holding on to those feelings only hurts us. Read more…

3 Other Brilliant Ways to Waste Your Life

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
— Muhammad Ali

Deep down inside of us, we know our lives are meant to be so much more. Even when we have all the money and material possessions a single soul could ever want, we look forward to making our lives count in some special way. At first, it might be innocent curiosity, not intending to spark any flame or move us any farther than an inch away from our current zone of comfort. But soon it turns into a nagging thought that is on our conscience day in and day out. We want to make our lives worth something that is long-lasting, even permanently etched somewhere in the world that we made a difference. In order to make any difference or solve any problem, we’ve got to make sure we’re not whittling away time and existence. Read more…

Change Your Life Through Forgiveness

Change Your Life Through Forgiveness

Shouldn’t you have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you? (Matthew 18:33, NLT)

Jesus tells a story in Matthew 18 about a man who was forgiven by a king for a debt he owed, but he chose not to forgive a fellow servant of his indebtedness to him. At the end of this parable, the king hears of the injustice and sends the first man to prison to be tortured. Embracing thoughts of bitterness and resentment toward another person is indeed torturous — not to the other person, but to ourselves. Read more…

I Have Decided…

Most of life is about making decisions. Our decisions help us to define who we are, what we want, and what type of people we want around us. Decisions also help us to be in charge of our lives. What we decide to do is our very own choice. If we make bad decisions, we will get bad results. Likewise, if we make good decisions, we will get good results. We can be definite about our attitudes and behaviors towards life and towards other people by the decisions that we make. When we are resolute in our minds, we have cleared a path for us to guide ourselves to fulfill our purpose without doubt and fear.
