Grateful For Your Generosity (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 241)

Grateful For Your Generosity

Philippians 4:18 (NLT)
At the moment I have all I need—and more! I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me with Epaphroditus. They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God.

We earn a living by the money we make through our work. However, working for money is a poor way to earn respect from others and establish a legacy that others will appreciate. We earn the gratitude of others by what we give of our time, our money, and ourselves. The people who accomplish the most and whose contributions are the most long-lasting are those who give generously.

Ending a Damaging Cycle of Pleasing Others (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 240)

Ending a  Damaging Cycle of Pleasing Others

“If you are busy pleasing everyone, you are not being true to yourself.”
— Jocelyn Murray

Everyone deserves to be loved, safe, appreciated, and accepted. Having a sense of belonging has long been determined to be a basic human need. It is natural and normal for our existence. In an effort to have these needs satisfied, many people resort to pleasing other people. People pleasing may seem to work on the surface but really behind the scenes it is a waste of time. It manipulates on one side and strips away self esteem on the other side. Continue reading

Relationship Over Ritual (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 240)

Relationship Over Ritual

Hebrews 13:9 (NLT)
So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.

Too many people believe that following God involves abiding by a list of rules, rituals, and regulations. Of course, as believers there are certain things that we choose not to do and that the Holy Spirit helps us to refrain from doing. But in God’s kingdom, our maturity is not based upon how many rules we follow. Our existence and growth are based upon God’s grace. Continue reading

You Are How You Act (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 239)

You Are How You Act

“The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.”
— Karl Marx

Sometimes life pushes you over. Other times it knocks you upside the head and sends you stumbling in a million different directions. But at other times, you knock you completely to the ground and dares you to get up. A good life is not one that consists of no problems. It is one that has learned how to persevere through challenges without complaining. Continue reading

From Guilt to Grace (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 239)

From Guilt to Grace

Romans 8:1 (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.

One of the biggest burdens people carry in life is shame and guilt. Since we are far from being perfect in any area, we are all faced with guilt and shame of some kind over our real or perceived flaws and certain imperfections. Just by being alive, we all are accustomed to some level of guilt. When sin entered the world, so did guilt and shame. Continue reading

3 More Brilliant Ways to Waste Your Life (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 238)

3 More Brilliant Ways to Waste Your Life

“If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.”
— Bruce Lee

Your focus, time, and energy each day are limited. You’ll never know what you could have done if you waste time throwing a pity party for yourself and moaning about what could have been. Life is full of choices. Every single day presents before us two options. We can choose to travel a meaningful part which is almost always debris-filled and difficult. Or we can choose to travel an easier path where we do nothing, say nothing, think nothing, and eventually be nothing. Following the path of least resistance ensures our own demise. Your life is a terrible thing to waste. Continue reading
