Opportunity

Opportunity is a beautiful thing when taken.

Opportunity

When someone prays for patience, do you think God gives them patience? Or does He give them the opportunity to be patient?

If they prayed for courage, do you think God gave them courage? Or do you think He gives them the opportunity to be courageous?

If they prayed for the family to be closer, do you think he gives them warm fuzzy feelings? Or does God give them the opportunity to love one another.

The best gifts given in life are the opportunities that we have to explore and learn on our own. Be thankful for the ability given to us to learn daily and cherish those the blessings forever.

Have you taken your opportunities lately?

Proverbs 3:13 NIV
Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding,

Environment

The environment that you surround yourself in, effects your attitude.

Environment

Changing your environment can, and will change your attitude. Don’t let conditions, things, people, or circumstances bring you down. Making a change, will change your whole life.

Stay positive, make changes, and lead a healthier and happier life.

Doors

Doors come in all sizes, shapes, and forms.
Some are massive and heavy, small and light, made of wood, metal, glass, etc. and with locks; that you can open and close at will.

Doors

Then there are those doors that are invisible and you can’t see them; but they are there. Some of them will open and some stay locked forever.

These are the doors that require faith. The ones that you can’t physically open; the ones that you can’t always understand why they remain closed; the ones that seemingly force you to take a different path and door.

Not all doors are meant for us; or are good for the well being of our lives. There are hidden traps, disasters, and unknown events that cause havoc upon us.

Then there are some that are seemingly great, but are not meant for us right then; because it is not time for that door to open; or a better door lies ahead.

Understanding this and having the patience to wait is hard, and will take every ounce of your strength to get through. It may take, days, weeks, months, and even years for one to open; but the benefits of waiting are worth the reward that waits upon you.

Be thankful for the blessings of closed doors, detours, and roadblocks. They protect you from paths and places that are not meant for you, your family or your friends.

Lean not on your own understanding, but on your faith.

Revelation 3:8 NIV
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

Consequence

Consequence is a result or effect that happens with every choice, action, decision, or condition.

Consequence

Not all consequences are bad; in fact, many are good; depending on the result and type of actions committed.

Keep your actions pure with healthy thoughts and good choices; so that you will have better results and favorable consequences.

Healthy Mind – Healthy Life.
Positive Mind – Positive Life.

Balance your life

Balancing your daily life can be quite the task. With work, family, chores, children, school, hobbies, church, errands, and other outside distractions; days, weeks, and even months can become hard.

Balance your life

Prioritizing and finding the time to fit it all in can become extremely stressful: especially if you are doing it alone. Like a juggler; you can only have so many balls in the air; before you begin to drop some.

Understanding that it is only possible to fit so many things into one day and that some things must wait is the key. Removing things that are not essential; is perfectly fine and does not make you a failure.

Being humble is ok; and asking for help from friends or family can save your sanity, your health and your family.

Find that balance for a healthier, happier and more stress-free life.

Psalms 68:19 NIV
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.

A bad day

Sometimes a bad day is just a bad day.

A bad day


Don’t let it consume you or define you.
Rise above it; turn it around; and move forward. A good attitude and determination will bring you through all things.

Every day is a new day and a fresh start to your life. Live it the best you can and enjoy each moment of it. Life is too precious not to.

Vision

Vision comes in all forms; from the ability to physically see; to something seen in the mind (as in a dream or spiritual experience).

Vision

Vision can be a beautiful or impressive sight; the power of imagination to design or plan something; to imagine what the future of something could be, and the endless possibilities of your mind.

The power of sight is a wonderful thing; the power of vision is an amazing gift.

Let your vision open your world and unlock your potential deep inside.

Simplicity

Simplicity brings calming and the makings of an uncomplicated life. It removes stress, unnecessary clutter and complications that lead to worry and strife.

Keep things simple in your daily life, thoughts, teachings, actions, interactions, communications, routines, and possessions.

Remove old baggage, unnecessary items, the confusion, and the complexities to experience a cleaner, happier, healthier, and a more peaceful journey.

Keep it simple and enjoy your blessings of a new life. Always K.I.S.S. “Keep It Simple Silly”.

Philippians 4:19 NIV
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Small Steps

Small steps lead to big things; that open up a world of possibilities.k

In our daily lives; small steps; one foot in front of the other; no rushing; no haste, slow and steady; can be a great guideline for living life.

American astronaut Neil Armstrong took the first small step on the moon in 1969.
A step that opened the doors to information about the moon and space. A step and a quote that has been remembered to this day.

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” ~Neil Armstrong

Let your small steps lead you to your big journey one step at a time. The rewards are endless.

Proverbs 16:9 NIV
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Proverbs 16:9 NIVLohttps:rd establishes their steps.
