The right decision doesn't mean an easy road.


When you know God has directed you to do something or blessed you with something, be prepared to endure the difficult times (when they come).  You may be that person that is needed to make that situation better.  Don’t abandon or curse that job, marriage, relationship, or business you have been led to do.  Choose your words and actions carefully, especially if YOU KNOW God has directed you in this area.  (People, especially non-believers or new believers shouldn’t hear you go from how God has blessed you with this wonderful job… to always talking about how bad things are, you hate this job, these people are crazy, etc…).   Endure the tough times and enjoy the rewards of your endurance.




There’s a story about a man named Joseph (in the bible)…He knew he was going to be in leadership.  However, the road to that leadership position was a tough one.   It entailed being thrown in a pit, sold into slavery; being lied on, thrown in prison, demotion…you get the picture.  Nowhere in the story did we hear of Joseph fussing or cussing about the difficult times he endured.  He continued to do what he was assigned and he was successful in everyplace he was put. He made it to the Palace and so can you.

In summary, just because you made the right decision, doesn’t mean it is going to be easy.  Don’t curse the blessing with your negative actions or words.  Even in difficult times, look to bless others.  And… enjoy the Palace (the promise).

"Today"



For my first post to my blog I wanted to share with you little motivation that I wrote some years ago. Take a look and we will chat on the other end...


Today


Today, has been gracefully given me, I will appreciate it.

Today is different, it may look like yesterday, but it’s not. Although, some of the fruit from yesterday may spring forth in today...Today is still different.

I have control of today, and yesterday is out of my reach . . . I can only wait for tomorrow, for it may show some of the results of what I do today.

I have to be smart with what I do today, for today will soon be gone.

Today, I will do things that others thought I couldn’t and doubted that I would.

Today, things I need to:

Start! I WILL START!!

Change! I WILL CHANGE!!

Do! I WILL DO!!

Learn! I WILL LEARN!!

Finish! I WILL FINISH!!

Start Over! I WILL START OVER!!

No matter how it looks, sounds, or feels; I will not QUIT!

It may not be simple… it may take hard work…

It will take COMMITMENT!

I'm committed!


Is it time for you to start something? Change something? Learn something? Finish something? How about start something over? There is no time like today. So, if its starting that business, or nonprofit, getting that GED, applying for that job, finishing that degree or mending a relationship (the list goes on and on)… It’s not too late. Ask God for his guidance, wisdom and strength and get to work.


See you on the other side…
