Did you get some bad news? Health concerns… juggling finances… job security… or whatever you’re anxious about…
If you do:
The Scripture says, ”
He will have no fear of bad news;
his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is secure, he will have no fear;
IN THE END he will look in TRIUMPH…
– Psalms 112:7-8

Are you living your life to the fullest or simply going with the flow? Do you find yourself giving up when you’re pushed to your limits? Can’t find an ounce of strength left in your tank or the courage to carry on?

Whatever you are aspiring to become, or the goals you have set for yourself, or want to simply rediscover the greatness in you…

Check out this video..

The Gift of Raising Your Standard:

Don’t lower your standards to meet your expectations instead raise your standards to exceed your expectations.

Know that all the obstacles and challenges we encounter in life is part of a process of what we have set ourselves to become or what we want to achieve. Remember, whatever you decide – there is always a price you have to pay.

It requires “commitment” and “discipline.” And the degree of commitment and discipline you put in… is the exact proportion of success you will have and achieve.

Get out of your comfort zone. Demand and expect more of yourself than anyone else and set a higher standard for yourself than what you’re used to.

And if you persist and push yourself to the limit you will find yourself not on the 20 yard line but in the End Zone.

 DON’T FORGET that each of us is an AWESOME Creation of God. You and I are blessed with extraordinary gifts and talents than any creature of creation. Rediscover yours… Don’t settle for less… You were born to be the BEST…  LIVE YOUR BEST!

Life doesn’t play favorites or get personal. It doesn’t care about the past. What matters is today. Not yesterday, not tomorrow but today. Look at Colonel Harland Sanders that pioneered Kentucky Fried Chicken. When he was 65 years old is when it really began for him. Confident of the quality of his fried chicken, the Colonel devoted himself to developing his chicken franchising business. Less than 10 years later, Sanders had more than 600 KFC franchises in the U.S. and Canada. What was he then close to 75 years old? And in 1964 he sold his interest in the U.S. company for $2 million to a group of investors including John Y. Brown Jr. (who later became governor of Kentucky).

We also hear wonderful countless stories of the “Wonder Boys” of this age that transformed an entire industry… the world and our way of life.

Success doesn’t have any age requirements. Nor preference of race, religion, sex or ethnic origin to qualify.

You just have to be alive.

The only difference…
some people choose to live just to survive… 
and some people decide to soar and fly….

Watch the video and get a jump start.. reinforce what you already know and to help you keep going…

Let’s pray together….

Father God – open our eyes that we may see You… sense Your Presence that you here with us right now
Open our ears that we may hear your Voice when you try to speak to us in the midst of our busy life… open our hearts that we may receive You – your Love… Forgiveness and your Grace…

We lift our all to you. To praise you and worship you this very moment… Come Lord, be with us. Fill us… fill this place… our homes… our hearts… with your Holy presence.  Let your WORD enrich us, BUILD OUR FAITH and empower us in our daily walk with you… and increase the desire in us to spend more moments with you… We ask this in Jesus name our Savior, Amen.

St. Augustine said that when we sing we pray twice to our Lord.

Here’s a music video that you can sing along. It’s a wonderful song!

Have a blessed day 🙂

Love quotes collection. The higher meaning of love. It’s essence to humanity.

We can judge others or we can love others –
but we can’t do both at the same time.

– Author Unknown

Not one of God’s children can be evil. At worst, he or she is hurt. At worst, he or she attacks others, and blames them for their pain. But, they are not evil.

Yes, your compassion must go this deep. There is no human being who does not deserve your forgiveness. There is no human being who does not deserve your love.

– Paul Ferrini

Many of us have at some time dreamt of owning one of those magic purses that would never be empty. No matter how much money we would draw from it, it would remain full! As it turns out, we already have such a contraption in us and this one’s worth a lot more than a trillion enchanted wallets. Our heart can love 24-hours a day without ever running empty. As a matter of fact, the more love we pass to others, the more love we’ll have!

– Author Unknown

A coward is incapable of exhibiting love;
it is the prerogative of the brave.

– Mahatma Gandhi

An ‘enemy’ is someone that God puts in our path that is most in need of our love; not retaliation or retribution or harm or insult.

– John Carmody
Former US Marine Captain and Silver Star Recipien

Books about relationships talk about how to ‘get’ the love you need, how to ‘keep’ love, and so on. But the right question to ask is ‘How do I become a more loving human being?’
– Sam Keen
American Author, Professor and Philosopher

You must love yourself before you love another.
By accepting yourself and fully being what you are…
your simple presence can make others happy.

– Jane Roberts

There were rules in the monastery, but the Master always warned against the tyranny of the law. ‘Obedience keeps the rules,’ he would say. ‘Love knows when to break them.’

– Anthony De Mello

Jesuit Priest and Author

Is it possible for the rose to say, ‘I will give my fragrance to the good people who smell me, but I will withhold it from the bad?’ Or is it possible for the lamp to say, ‘I will give my light to the good people in this room, but I will withhold it from the evil people’? Or can a tree say, ‘I’ll give my shade to the good people who rest under me, but I will withhold it from the bad’? These are images of what love is about.

– Anthony De Mello

Jesuit Priest and Author

Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it.

– Harold S. Hulbert

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

– Thomas Merton

American Author, Monk and Mystic

Life’s Humors 101

On the first day God created the dog. God said, “Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years.” The dog said, “That’s too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten.”
So God agreed.

On the second day God created the monkey. God said, “Entertain people, do monkey tricks and make them laugh. I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.” The monkey said, “Monkey tricks for twenty years? I don’t think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that’s what I’ll do too, okay?”
And God agreed.

On the third day God created the cow. “You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves, and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years.”
The cow said, “That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I’ll give back the other forty.”
And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man. God said, “Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I’ll give you twenty years.”
Man said, “What? Only twenty years? Tell you what, I’ll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back, and the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?”

Okay,” said God, “You’ve got a deal.”

So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves; the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren; and the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.
