Life never lets up on us and we must take seriously it’s challenges. There is a standard, set by God, to be striven for. Keep aiming at the standard and avoid the easy path of selfishness.
Strength of character must take priority or we are left in very dangerous waters which more often than not, results in drowning.
Very often life’s circumstances bring temptations to do the easy thing even when we know we shouldn’t. We are called to be faithful, meaning the right thing is often very difficult.
We are created to function in certain ways, with proper nourishment being the key, not only in our physical bodies but also that of our spirits.
We begin the race with enthusiasm but a wrong turn along the course will up-end your destination.
How wonderful it is when the things in which we find delight we desire to share with those we care about. If then, we delight in Christ why is it we don’t share Him as readily?
One father’s offer to tr trade his life for that of his son illustrates our Heavenly Father’s gift to us.
If you don’t believe you can, you won’t. Seek the Father’s will, believe you can and keep on working at it. You will accomplish the mission you are given.
Learn to accept that frustrations are part of living and you set the stage for a more contented life in Christ.
Darkness can be terrifying. We need to remember that God is here with us and that the tunnel has light at both ends, so keep on traveling.
The road will get bumpy, it’s a fact of life. When it does we can resign, leave our post; become resigned to failing our task; or re-sign, putting a fresh signature on our commitment.
The account of Christ’s birth never gets old. Bethlehem was chosen for the honor of bringing forth the King of Kings into the world.
In this fable we can see the truth that the dreams of children more often than not don’t come true. That is, they are not fulfilled as we foresee them, but in life there is a plan and a Planner who works in all.
The most unhappy people in the world are those who pursue it the hardest. A “good time” and happiness are not at all the same things.
Sometimes it is so difficult to get back up after being knocked down that we are tempted to not even try it; but when we quit we guarantee that we will not succeed. So, hang in there and giving it the best you have. Don’t quit!
Greatness of soul is not measured by genius, fame or fortune, but by the kindness that is sown in the those along our path.
A single incident in the life of Abraham Lincoln offers an insight into how God often moves to lead and direct the lives of His children in Christ Jesus.
Each member of the twelve who most closely followed Christ had a specific role to play in the spread of the Gospel. Each was faithful to their call unto death. Disciples.
There is great power in showing appreciation to others. Everyone desires to be appreciated for the part they play so why should it be so difficult for us to express our appreciation to others?
Not everyone marching in the parade of life can lead. There must always be the followers. Second best doesn’t mean less-than or incapable. It simply means that we play the part we have to the best of our ability.
