Oh, my WORD!!! This little boy is TOO much! Ha ha ha! Love it! :D
Why failure is essential to building genuine self-confidence.
Most of us think of failure as a plague to avoid at all costs, or something inevitable that we must endure.
But failure is actually a key component to building self-confidence, perhaps even more than success. Counter-intuitive? Allow me to explain. Continue reading
We must never forget how valuable TIME is. Every day is a treasure; a gift. This could be our last; we’re not promised tomorrow. Be present. Be in the moment. Pay attention to people. Look them in the eye when talking to them. Listen to their words without thinking of something else while they are talking. Smile, care, love, be happy. Be grateful. Take notice of God’s creation around you. Thank Him for what you see; the hills, the trees, flowers, clouds, moon. Learn to quiet your mind and sit still. Take deep breaths. We can’t hear God’s still, small voice if we are constantly stimulating our minds with technology. Eat slowly and enjoy your food. Organize your time, daily, so it will not be wasted. Live today on purpose. Do everything for a reason. Time is precious; valuable. When it’s gone, it’s gone. Never to be seen again. Make a difference. Give. Enjoy. Don’t take everything so seriously. Live without regrets.
I agree with Darren on this 100%. What we fill our eyes, ears and minds with is what we become and shapes our future. Filling our minds with too much negativity and bad news will cause us to be down and depressed more than if we filled our minds with positive information as much as possible. Think about it.

“Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and life in America is about to change in a major way.”
The systematic destruction of the American way of life is happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening. Once upon a time in America, if you were responsible and hard working you could get a good paying job that could support a middle class lifestyle for an entire family even if you only had a high school education. Things weren’t perfect, but generally almost everyone in the entire country was able to take care of themselves without government assistance. We worked hard, we played hard, and our seemingly boundless prosperity was the envy of the entire planet. But over the past several decades things have completely changed. Continue reading
1 A Psalm of David. The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war should rise against me, In this I will be confident.
4 One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
9 Do not hide Your face from me; Do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; Do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the Lord will take care of me.
11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

“Today, you awaken to a day in which you have the power to make and inspire change.
In fact, it is the ONLY day in which you have any power. You have no control over yesterday. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is Continue reading
