I know for me this happens sometimes. I am going about my day and something happens I find myself complaining about the weather, politics, or life. I even must say I complain to myself at times but the problem is all the negativity hurts me.
How often are we pessimistic?
how about worry?
These questions are all above and I hope that we can all think about how these impact our lives and what we can do the change them. I know we cannot be perfect but making small progress is greater than no progress. Many times the small progress and steps we make have the largest impacts.
I believe most of these will have an impact on our lives so let us try to become the greatest person we can be with these tools of life.
He said, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, O Lord, I pray, let the Lord go along in our midst, even though the people are so obstinate, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your own possession.”
Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.
In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this.
First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
The power of dreaming big with a purpose is important in a business or life. Faith is the part of dreaming with a purpose we have not discussed. faith is, “firm belief in something for which there is no proof” (Webster).
When we put our dream, purpose, faith, and action together we see things happen. Results that seem out of reach or impossible to us can happen. The power of dreaming big allows us to stretch beyond our situation allowing our entire team to reach another level. We cannot go beyond what our faith and dreams will allow. We are creatures of habit that is why dreaming big is a key.
What is the dream or the purpose of your life?
What opportunities do you need to explore in your life?
Our children are like sponges soaking up the environment around them. It is vital that we realize the impact we have on our children. The children around us also are impacted by our behaviors.
Children are like mirror images of ourselves. I have seen over the course of my life so many families who complain about kids. When I got a chance to see the parents and their interactions with their children I began to see a pattern. They really pick up the little things we do not even realize we do.
Habits and the little things that we do not even notice that can be seen good or bad. Create habit in our kids. I understand this is not 100 percent true all the time but as a general rule, this is correct.
What example are we to children we impact or come into contact with?
What can we do to help our kids see the right examples?
Our world is full of influence, the greatest, the loudest they have will impact them the most.
So what is it?
Video games, TV Shows, Friends, Family, or what?
Just some food for thought and please give your opinion.
