What can Defeat do to You?

What can Defeat do to You?

Defeat does something to your character. Defeat is not the worst thing that can happen to you. When you don’t even try because of the fear of defeat, then that is true failure! Joshua 1:9 says “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Who is God to You?

Who is God to You?

Have you honestly asked yourself,  “who is God to you?” Your life depends on how you see God in your life. If you make Him your #1 priority, He promises you a place in His eternal Kingdom. While you’re waiting here on earth, he showers you with every blessing that your mind cannot fathom! John 14:6 says about Jesus, “I […]

Where is your Security?

Where is your Security?

Security is such a big issue these days and will continue to be in the years to come. Crimes continue to rise. It seems that thieves, criminals, and stalkers get smarter and more creative in their lawless deeds. Hiring bodyguards or having your private security may come at an outrageous price. But then, do you know that the very BEST, […]

How does one go farther?

How does one go farther?

Have you ever asked yourself how one grows, get better, or go farther ? My basketball coach would always say that when you reach your limit and can’t take another step, take one more and mark that spot. Next time, you already know until where you can reach. When you’re exhausted and can’t go any further, go one more step […]

The value of working hard

The value of working hard

Proverbs 10:4 says “Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Working hard and doing our best is not just valuable for our employer but also good for you. The value that we place on work strongly influences the outcome of our lives. Have a God-blessed and fruitful day!

Do Not Decide in Haste

Do Not Decide in Haste

Someone once said that half of life’s troubles can be traced back from hasty decisions. There are times when we say yes too quickly. Has this ever happened to you? Never make any decision when you’re at “HALT” – when you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. You are not longer logically sound in your thinking in those conditions. Proverbs […]

Living Your New Life

Living Your New Life

One of my favorite verses: 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” Remember that you are “brand new.” The new life God gives you is not an addendum to your old life. It’s not a footnote to remind you of a significant event or decision […]

Choices

Choices

Most of us experience times when we feel torn between the demands of life and the clock -the times when we have to make hard “choices.” These are also the moments when we look back at the times we made choices and how those choices affect us today. If we made unwise decisions in the past, let us not linger and […]

1st Thing in the Morning

1st Thing in the Morning

When you eat the wrong thing first, then your whole meal and digestion is ruined. Heard the phrase waking up on the wrong side of the bed and then you feel like whole day is not right? So what you do first matters. It sets the tone and direction of your day. Every morning when you wake up read God’s […]

Obeying His Word

Obeying His Word

God’s guidance comes when we obey his Word. There are times when it is hard to understand the logic behind his command or leading and it will take our faith to cause us to move another step. Without faith we cannot please God. (Hebrews. 11:6) The best way is to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not […]

Is there such a thing as a “worry-free” life?

Is there such a thing as a “worry-free” life?

We stress because of too much worrying. The Bible asserts that worrying is not good for us. Proverbs 12:25 says, “Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” God loves us. Mat. 6:30 says, “And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care […]

Integrity

Integrity

I love what Zig Ziglar said about the integrity of a person. “With integrity you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt. With fear and guilt removed you are free to be and do your best.” – Zig Ziglar Proverbs 10:9 says “Whoever […]

Doing Little Things

Doing Little Things

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “a great man is always willing to be little.” He knows in his heart that doing the little will not diminish his greatness. He knows that all his abilities and talent come from GOD. Nothing on our own but all given by God. Luke 16:10 says “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be […]

A Good Leader

A Good Leader

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way” – John C. Maxwell The Bible says in Romans 12:8 that a good leader is… “The one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.” Lord, that’s the […]

Motivation

Motivation

I love the practicality of Zig Ziglar when he said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in […]
