The Bible, which is the Word of God, reveals God's plan for every person. The plan is for our redemption or salvation by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. As soon as we do this we are saved. This is a personal choice every one has to make for theirself.

Once we have chosen to follow God's plan for our lives, we are responsible not only to conform our own lives and characters to Christ's image, but to share Christ's love with others so that their lives can be transformed. We can fulfill our responsibilities as we respond to the Holy Spirit who reveals God to us when we study the Bible.

The study of God's Word demands our best attention. The Holy Spirit teaches us, but we must apply ourselves as well. It takes careful study of the Bible to understand its deep meanings. We must read it again and again to gain it's full understanding.

Try to set aside some time every day to simply read and digest all that you have read. Take notes and don't be afraid to question what you have read. The answers are there. Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you

Jeremiah 29:13
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart

James 1:21 | In Context | Whole Chapter


21 So get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls.


James 1:27


27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Father God,
Help me become a generous and joyful giver and use me to meet the needs of others as You would see fit. Teach me to be humble in all things giving the Glory and Honor always in Your Blessed Name Lord God.
As I begin each new day always giving Thanks for the breath that I breath and my wonder family and friends, and ask that you guide me Lord through my day to remember to be constant in prayer.
I ask again today Father, that You touch Jane gibes son Stan with a healing hand, and look after Jonathan's grieving heart, as You touch little Parker's brain, I ask for a blessing of our newly born Christian Chris, that You help him to continue to grow in Your Holy words Lord.
I Praise aand Rejoice in Your warth and Love Father for You are awesome in all Your Glory!!
In Christ Jesus Name
Amen

Be mindful of the link between present action and desired future outcome. Ask yourself: if I repeat today's actions 365 times, will I be where I want to be in a year? ~ROZ SAVAGE

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

Thank God for random acts of kindness in a world where too often sarcasm and being ignored was the rule. As I have grown older I say was becuase the human race seems a bit kinder as I age.

My favorite is the simple, "One day at a time." It keeps me from beatng myself up when I slip or make an unhealthy choice, and it also keeps away the depression of looking at how far I still have to go.

In the greater scheme of things we need to be most concerned about what the Almighty thinks of us. Did we use the talents given us optimally and are we using our full potential?
