Have Purpose

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Can I share a secret with you? In life, we don’t really know what would make us happy. Don’t believe me, ask someone who is happily married, I guarantee the person they are with did not meet every requirement on their dream list. Still don’t believe me, talk to a millionaire attaining items that the average person would say brings happiness like a car, or home. If you create and idea of “happy” and run after that you will be leading a life of discouragement. But if you set your sights on higher things that being impactful while one this earth, I guarantee you will live your best life yet!

Did you know that you can control how your day is going? I know what you are thinking…life is unpredictable and everything in it is as well. Can I offer another thought?  Even though you cannot control what happens in your day, you can control your emotion through it. When you have a problem if you ask God to show you just one positive aspect of it all… I guarantee He will!

EXAMPLE: You may have been late to work, but had you been on time you would have been apart of a deadly accident.

Today choose to see the great in your day! Selah

Are you ready to receive in 2018?

To be a person who receives you must learn how to be a person who gives. If you do research on the most successful people on this planet, they gave their time and complete energy to what they wanted to accomplish. In the Bible, we are taught that what we sew we reap in excess.

This year don’t be afraid of giving your all! If you’re going to have a stronger relationship with God spend more time with God without fear of what’s going on around you. If you’re going to start a business, put your very best foot forward and know that if God put the desire inside of you… then he made you CAPABLE and you will succeed. Be a giver this year and watch God transform every area of your life. Selah
