Trials

Trials are placed in our lives to grow us…to strengthen us. We have a choice when faced with challenges: we can rise to the challenge or we can shrink from it. To rise, think of the trials of life as opportunities. It might not make what you are going through any easier, but it gives purpose to the challenge…

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…

Conflict

Conflict is unavoidable, but it doesn’t have to destroy relationships. Our world would be pretty boring if we all looked and thought the same. God loves variety! The truth is that we can learn from each other. An opinion that’s different from our own isn’t a threat. Consider it to be an opportunity to see things from a different viewpoint. We are better together…
