Found this online today and it was beautifully written that I had to share it with everyone. Nothing biblical in it but the message is the same. What you read, write, see, hear, and speak will always live within you. Like the Bible says…YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS. The truth in your heart will always win out. Although life is hard, what is more hard is living a life and living with anger, jealousy, gree, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
Words and talk that I should live by as well. I really do struggle with resentment. I always replay moments in my life were people have wronged me or have taken advantage of me. I am always there for everyone and Lord knows when something is wrong in their lives, I am the one who is there. In my darkest moments or moments of celebration, I have been alone. What am I feeding my mind? Resentment. What do I need to let go off…resentment.
The power of a desire can catapult you to a very successful in business or a personal achievement. The power of a desire can heal you or a family member. The power of a desire can lead you to a happy life. It’s now up to you to work hard to get you to the finish line.
What to do? Where to start? How to begin? First your desire has to be powerful enough that your willing to work for free, your willing to stay up late and wake up early for it, and be on your mind constantly. If you not willing to sacrifice to earn it, the desire will have no value to you. For example public education is free, but yet many people don’t value it. Why? They did not earn it. Now if you paid thousands of dollars for a degree or a class you are going to invest in then you would want your money’s value for it. Why is that? You earned it. It has value to you. You put hard work in and you have completed the race. Your mind and body is trained to enjoy success.
Obtain little results, day by day, step by step. Why? It helps you see results and lets you know you enjoy what you do. People who are determine to lose weight and tone their body start off with a look in the mirror or before pick. As you train day by day and get feedback you will start noticing results. Results produces confidence, confidence produces motivation, motivation produces joy.
The Power of a Desire is strong. Mix your sincere desire with faith and watch the incredible happen. For me what was my second daughter. My wife in her late term pregnancy started bleeding, spots of blood started to pour out of her. We rushed her to the hospital, my mind thought the worst. But I did not give up. I believed she was ok, I hoped she will be ok, I did not give in to negative thinking. The doctor said that she miscarried and that they could not find the heart beat. So he schedule us to see her primary doctor the next day. Once at our primary doctor office the nurse was going to start removing the baby, but something was blinking on the screen. The nurse examined again and said there is a heart beat. Never in my life did I feel joy, happiness. They said go home everything is going to be ok. What a blessing.
You must Train your mind to want it, want it so bad that even when the worst of the worst hits you your mind is trained to fight, hope, and think as one.
Have a blessed Christmas Eve with family and friends. If you are not with loved ones, I pray that the Holy Spirit comfort you and wrap you with love and peace. As for me, i am blessed to be with my wife and kids. I do not take it for granted that I have them around. I miss my mom and dad as they are halfway around the world. It warms my heart that they are at my fathers childhood home right now.
The Newsboys say it best.
