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 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.
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
