TO LOVE, WE MUST LEARN TO HATE…

What we hate, we must learn to love.  What comes easy will be difficult to endure.  What comes with work will give us rest.  Riches are discovered in poverty.  Safety in a place of risk.  And, more in the place of less.

Wednesday’s Wisdom

Pink budding roseFAITH

What is it?  How do you get it?

FAITH is all around us!  We use every day:  when you plan for tomorrow(you have FAITH that tomorrow is coming) because you plan;  simply sitting in a chair(you don’t think to check to see if the chair will hold you or slide from underneath you) because you turn and sit; and walking(putting one foot in front of the other without thinking) because you move in space without falling on your face – you conquer the art of falling without thinking. . . now that’s faith.

FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen.  ~Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Do you have FAITH?

Words Power

Do not allow your words to destroy your dream(s).  Jesus says your words reveal the kind of heart you possess.  “What you say flows from what is in your heart.”  Luke 6:45c (NLT)

Words created the world.  (Genesis 1)  Words create your world, and they are a bridge to your future.

Jesus knew when to talk and when to listen, so we can learn from Him.  When His truth was ignored in Pilate’s court, He was silent but when people thirsted for His truth, He spoke for hours.

See Proverbs 18:21

The Power of Your Words

Do you realize your words are the seeds for feelings and your future?  God has given you a mouth and a mind to magnify your strength and increase your capabilities.  Your words should reflect your desires and confidence in your dreams.  You schedule your failure with your negative thoughts and words.  Your conversation need to amplify your dreams.  Negative words can easily dilute your dreams if you are talking opposite of your desired future.

Psalm 19:14 (ESV)

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
    be acceptable in your sight,
    O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Salvage Someone

You are not the only person struggling today.   Others around you are hurting too.  Be extremely attentive to the silent cries of someone close to you who may be drowning in the Ocean of Helplessness.  Allow yourself to become their Life-Jacket…of hope.

What does INDEPENDENCE really mean?  We know what it means to a country but what does it mean to the individual?  Choices, freedom, living life as a free-spirit or is it interdependence?  How we are to live and behave toward our fellow man.  How are we to choose our individual INDEPENDENCE?

My country owes me nothing.  It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance.  It gave me schooling, independence of action, opportunity for service and honor.  In no other land could a boy from a country village, without inheritance or influential friends, look forward with unbounded hope.  ~~ Herbert Hoover

THAT’S BORN IN THE USA!

WISDOM WEDNESDAY

If—
If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
