Inventory

Take a good look at yourself. Make a list of your talents and strengths. Thank the Creator for giving them to you.

When you focus on what you have instead of what others have, your thoughts align with your purpose. Coveting a talent someone else has takes away from your joy in the moment. God hardwired you exactly the way He wanted you. Go with it!

All of us are unique. It’s time to put your uniqueness on display…

Timing

Timing is everything. When you need to have a difficult conversation with someone, choosing the right time makes all the difference.

God’s timing is perfect. That said, I don’t always like His timing in the moment, but it turns out the best when I accept it. He really does know best.

If you are in a challenging period of your life, take a minute to thank God for the lessons you are learning. He never punishes us, only disciplines. Discipline means teaching, even when we don’t like it…

Higher Ground

All of us have a deeper desire than we are living. We have been imbued by the Creator to live for a greater purpose, to be part of something bigger than ourselves. What stops us from pursuing it?

Faith can be a scary thing. We step into an abyss, not knowing what’s next or where we are going. What might seem scary can also be exhilarating. Our mindset in pursuit of our reason for living sets the tone. Do we have a fear mindset, or one of great faith? We get to choose.

Fear can paralyze you. Faith will energize you. Choose faith and live higher…

Travel

Did you like to travel? I believe most people would reply with a resounding, yes! Travel exposes us to new, exciting adventures we might not otherwise see.

Our senses come alive from new stimuli. New neural pathways are formed as we make memories. But we can have similar experiences every day. Reading, writing, taking in a museum or having stimulating conversations will accomplish the same thing. Using all your sensory perceptions is key.

Try it! Most of us are not able to physically travel all year long, but our imagination is only as limited as we allow it to be…

Gifts

On Christmas morning, people all over the world are celebrating and opening gifts. But there is one gift we might overlook daily: the gift of life.

Birth itself is a miracle. It is awe-inspiring to study and understand all the things that must go right to produce a baby. The odds are against us, but when God is involved all the odds are shifted.

There are people who won’t wake up today. Some died naturally, while some chose to take their own life. Never take life for granted. It is a gift from God…

Broken

Everywhere you look you can see brokenness. From people to the world we live in, nothing lasts. Yet, it is possible to maintain an optimistic mindset amid the brokenness.

Look for opportunities to serve others. Lifting other people while they are in their own struggles will energize you.

Be a giver, no a taker. Leaders have a servants heart…
