Father, I want my faith to be more than just talk. I want it to be real and authentic, flowing from a heart set on You. Forgive me when I play religious games and pretend to be someone I am not. I am a sinner saved by Your grace. Teach me how to walk in that grace so that when the hard times come and the pressure is on, You come pouring out of my life.
In Jesus’ name.


"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able ; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Cor. 10: 13)

"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.


How many times has somebody told you to “think positively”? Easier said than done, right? But this truly can make a difference in your life. Focus on the good, and learn from the bad. You have the freedom and ability to choose your own attitude. What will you choose? Enthusiasm can carry you through a lot more than you think. Never just be satisfied with what you have, but keep working to achieve more. Set specific goals and work for them. After you have accomplished them, set new ones. Keep working to make yourself a better person.

There's a lot of darkness in our world. With so much evil, sometimes we forget that there is a shining Light that's always in control. Jesus is that Light, and He wants the absolute best for His children so try not to get caught up in the darkness and focus on the promises of our Lord. :) Have a great weekend and God bless!

I am one who has experienced unexpected and permanent retirement. Time is a much squandered commodity and before you know it, it's gone. Such is life, fleeting, make the most of it.

I love what you wrote, but unfortunately I am one of those people who is flaundering. I do not have a dream to pursue. Maybe my dream should be to find a dream. But I have struggled with this for some time now, and nothing jumps out that I feel passionate about. It can be quite frustrating at times. I'm willing to put the work in; I'm just not sure for what.

Or as Winnie the Pooh once said, sometimes you start thinking and forget to get going.

Perseverance and determination are huge in the greater scheme of things. Thinking about this may cause me to get my butt in gear and finish another chapter in my novel. I get lazy and do nothing other than read and forget that God gave me this talent to use and 'use it or lose it' is a warning I need to heed.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

One person working toward a dream is worth 99 people just working.


We’ve all worked with people who just show up to fill space. Uninspired and stuck going through the motions, they pick up a paycheck on Monday and wait for Friday. Some are just killing time until retirement. Heck, maybe you find yourself in this situation. Not a very satisfying way to spend your days is it? Sounds like an easy life – except that in life, retirement can be permanent and unexpected. In your life, do you have a dream or a vision that you’re heading for, or are you puttering around vaguely? Before it’s too late, find a dream that’s worth the trouble. Nothing is wrong with hard work. Determination and elbow grease are what make the best dreams possible. But it’s interesting that most work makes us look downward, while dreams lift our eyes to the sky. While you’re keeping that nose to the grindstone, how can you keep your head up to see where you’re going?
