Seeking…

Everyone is seeking, searching for two things: our identity and our purpose. In other words, “who am I and why am I here? We are trying to fill what 17th century French philosopher Blaise Pascal referred to as a “God-shaped vacuum.”

Ask yourself, what am I good at? What causes my heart to overflow in richness and fulfillment? This is a key to finding your purpose. Once you have found your true purpose, you know who you are…

Cuts…

Why do people feel the need to criticize others and put them down?

The genesis of criticism and cut-downs is the critics own self esteem. When you feel good about yourself inside, you look for the good in others. And if you find yourself in a position where you need to offer some constructive criticism, choose your timing well and use gentleness and self control when delivering the message.

Bring light into the lives of others…

Broken…

When a car breaks down, we get it repaired. Why don’t we fix ourselves?

All of us are broken in some way. Our lives might look good, even perfect on social media, but we hide our true selves. All of us have past hurts, pain, unresolved issues and great memories. This makes us who we are.

We can fix our emotional brokenness through self-work. People avoid this kind of work because it’s hard to really look at yourself, your flaws and patterns which don’t serve you well. But doing the hard work on yourself is so worthwhile. Take the first brave step to freedom. And keep going…

Dreams…

We seek fulfillment in our hearts through the power of our dreams. When the day arrives that you discover your true purpose, nothing in the universe can stop you except yourself. There will be plenty of critics, naysayers and dream killers along the way, but pay no attention to them. This is your dream. Seek guidance from the Creator, get started and keep going…

The Voiceless…

Speak up for those who feel like they don’t have a voice. Stand your ground for what’s right, even if you have to stand alone. There’s no honor in “going with the flow” if that path leads to sorrow. There are many people who are in pain, desperately trying to find hope. Be their light in the darkness…

Work

Unless you were born a trust fund child, you have to work. Our work should be more than just a job; more like a calling. A calling gives purpose to our jobs, fulfills our heart’s desires and sustains us even on our worst days. If your work isn’t fulfilling you, you might not be aligned with the calling our Creator placed on your life. Something to consider…

Don’t Overlook This

We can get so busy that we start taking things for granted. If we have food in our refrigerator, a safe place to live and good people in our lives, we already have what many people are praying for. Recognize, remember and be grateful for the good in your life. Don’t focus on what you lack…
