Life Is A Continuous Adventure

Life keeps moving along and waits for no one. Make life an adventure that you can grow from and learn and experience something new everyday that you are here on earth. Life can be challenging so take on the challenge and keep moving forward in your life. Life is what you make of it to some degree. If you always look at the glass half full it will remain half full no matter what. You can make the glass full and overflowing if you allow it.

Your Time on Earth is a Valuable Gift

View your time on Earth as a valuable gift. Help others to see how their life has impacted others to achieve things that they never thought they could. Be a cheerleader for people and thank them for everything they do day after day that helps the lives of so many.

Be Adventurous

Adventures don’t just come to you. You have to set goals in your life and try your very best to get the goal accomplished in a time frame that works for you. If you want to further your education find a college that works for you. You may want to take online classes as that will work better with your current job.

Embrace Your Illness and Still be Adventuresome

Health problems will slow you down on your goals and adventures. Seek adventures that will work with your current health problems. It may take longer to get to where you really want to be but you will get there. Remember to embrace your illness so it does not empower you. Do task and adventures that are not taxing on your health.

Traveling is Relaxing

Travel can be very relaxing if you stay in the same location for several days. I like to shop at the different stores and eat the various foods that the countries have to offer. I enjoy looking at the scenery and the architecture of the different buildings. I love to listen to the tour guide tell about the history of the country and the area that we are traveling in.

Never Miss Out on a New Adventure

Never miss out on a new adventures in life. Life is too short so live life to its fullest potential. Discover and learn something new everyday that you our blessed to be here on Earth. Be kind,caring and compassionate to your fellow man. Get out there and enjoy the great outdoors and all it has to offer you. Don’t wait for the perfect moment for that time may never come. Go while you can for time waits for no man.

Carrying The Basket

Some of us carry a heavy basket. If you see someone that is burdened with a heavy load help them carry the load. We have no idea what kind of a load a person has to carry on their shoulders day after day. Some people seem to get by by having the other person always carrying their basket for them or are they ? God notices if you try to sneak by by not carrying your own basket. People often see minor flaws in others but do not see their own major flaws.

If one person in a group does all of the work all of the time it is not fair to them. Everyone must put an effort into getting the job done and than so much more can be accomplished. Harry Truman said : it is amazing how much can get done if no cares who gets the credit.

When working with others make sure everyone has a job that they can work on for the betterment of the task at hand. We all have different talents so let people put forth their best effort with their particular talent. Remember to always praise people for a job well done. Never criticize the work of anyone that has done the best that they can possibly do.

Do not keep passing the basket down the line. An empty basket benefits no one. How do we carry the basket and pass it along to others. We have a common purpose or cause that others want to support. We want to help the less fortunate, the homeless, missions, our church and anyone that is in need of support and understanding, Carry the basket with as many people as possible and many people will benefit from the love and support that has gone into that one basket filled with love and support from God and his good stewards.

Pardon Me

We say I beg your pardon if we have not heard a speaker and we wish for him to repeat what he has just said so we clearly understand what he said initially. To say  pardon me is a common courtesy when we have inconvenienced someone.

If we step in front of someone by mistake we say pardon me. When someone pardon’s us they forgive us for our offense. If we have been discourteous we should say pardon me. We should be more courteous to the needs of others.

If a Judge pardons you he has released you from your punishment or infraction of the law. Many prisoners have been granted a last minute pardon over the years that has saved their lives. Some prisoners have been granted a full  pardon that gives them back their rights they had initially.

We ask God to Pardon us when we ask him for forgiveness for a terrible transgression. All of us have sinned and fall short of Gods glory. Gods forgives us for our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us. We should learn from our sins of the past and never repeat them.

We should pardon people for their mistakes. All of us have made plenty of mistakes in our lifetime. We should admit our mistakes and learn from them. Do not make a mistake and try to place the blame on someone else. Own up to your flaws and mistakes and try each day to be a better person.

If you inconvenience someone make it up to them. Be courteous, kind, loving, caring, joyful and show great compassion toward your fellow man. Hold doors open for people. Spread Gods good works everyday and bring sunshine into the lives of others. Put a smile on someones face today. Remember to say pardon me for your discourtesy or if you have inconvenienced someone. Try each day to be a better you.

Trust

Trust means that we have confidence in someone. If we confide in someone that means that we trust them with private, personal or financial information. Trust is not given quickly as it takes time to win someones trust. If a confidence is broken the trust between the two parties is also broken. It takes a very long time to earn someones trust back.

 

To have faith in a person we also trust that person. God has faith in us that we will strive to do the right things in life. God has given us the ten commandments as to how he wants us to live. We as Gods children trust in God as he has always been by our side.

Hope is a form of trust. We hope for good health, weather, friends and so much more. Without hope for a bright tomorrow you are lost. We trust that the sun will come up in the morning and will set at night. Our trust in God and his trust in us is a wonderful gift of love and hope that keeps us going and doing good things with our lives while we are on earth.

The old lyrics ” trust and obey for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey”. To be happy in any relationship there has to be trust. Without trust you cannot form lifelong ties with someone. Blessed be the tie that binds is a Christian fellowship or shared belief. We all believe that trust is important to a tie that binds us together with God and fellow Christians. United we stand and divided we fall. Christians must unite for a common cause and worship and praise God together for all the blessings and great joys he has given to us. In God we trust today and into eternity.

Why Envy People

We should be glad for people that have achieved their life long dream. We do not know what they have been through to get where they are today. We should never be resentful of another’s good fortune or achievement.

If you feel pain at the sight of another’s good fortune or achievement you are not really happy for them. We should as a good christian be happy for everyone’s good fortune. Achievements do not just get handed to one on a silver platter. People work hard for their achievements.

Envy is bad when you are not elated for your friends accomplishments. Envy is good if you have a longing for something and you work hard and earn the item that you have desired. Praise people on their accomplishments and do not resent them.

If you want another person’s possessions think twice about that. Maybe their possessions have weighed them down and consumed their whole life. Owning something does not make you happy. Friends and family make you happy. Possessions wear out and get sold.

If someone you know has a desirable attribute think to yourself how can I become more like them and do not resent them for it. Strive to be the kind of person that God wants you to be. Be helpful, kind, compassionate, caring, loving, peaceful, hopeful,joyful,faithful and a good steward of God every change that you are given.

I am happy when I see someone achieve their life long dream. Reach for the stars that are in the heavens as they will bring you to new heights in your life. Share your good fortunes with others. Use your achievement to benefit mankind.

God is faithful, forgiving and kind to all of mankind. God is overjoyed at all of our accomplishments and achievements in life. God wants his flock to do well on earth and share our accomplishments with others for the benefit of all. Do not be boastful. Give and never expect anything in return. Be gracious and thankful for all of the blessings in your life and pass them along to others.

The Man Who Worshiped Money So Much He Left Everything Else Behind

There was a man so obsessed with making money that he ignored the fact that his own family was falling apart. His children had many problems that a good caring Father could have helped them with if he was only their for them. He was a humble man and did not put on Aires but his money came first before everything or anybody else.

He did not spend quality time with his wife or family. He walked right by a man wanting food when he came out of a restaurant with a to go box full of leftovers. He ignored the needs of his church family and he ignored what God  wanted him to do with his life. He never traveled and he never took time to relax. He hardly ever talked to people unless it was his financial adviser.

Time kept marching on and he still made no changes in his life his children now had children of their own. He did not spend time with his Grandchildren. He was now obsessed with the fact that he might not have enough money for a rest home in his old age. He worked and toiled away endlessly. One day his body gave out and he finally turned to God for help. He began to see the errors of his ways. He realized he had ignored the cries of the needy, his family, friends, church family and God.

He began to see what he had been missing out on in life. He was missing out on being loved and adored by his family. He had missed out on the beauty of nature and what God was calling upon him to do with his life that would help others.

The man who had worshiped money now worshiped God and family and friends. He now gave freely to the cries of the needy. He found out it is better to give than to receive. Money did not buy him happiness in fact it almost robbed him of everything that is truly important in life.

It takes a disaster or a near death experience to wake some people up to as what is truly important in life. Life is meaningless without love from family, friends and God. Money does not buy happiness or friends. Money can truly be the root of all evil if you worship it before you worship God. Do not let money consume or devour your life. Give freely to worthwhile charities and help as many people as you possibly can while you are here on earth. God bless a joyful giver.

Worry

Worrying about things robs you from a day or more of your life. Worrying over anything will not change the results of the outcome. Do not sweat the small stuff in life as it is not worth your time or effort.

The worry wart worried all day long and he never made a difference in his life or the lives of others while he was worrying away his valuable time on earth. God knows all of our worries and troubles and he will take care of all of them in good time. Trust in the Lord for his love for you is constant and never ceasing.

Always put your best foot forward in life and you will always be one of Gods good stewards. Do not worry for God will heal or help you along lives HWY.  Remember not to worry for things will work out.

Do not give in to anxiety or allow ones mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles. Talk to people and realize their are other people that have gone through what you have gone through or worse. When you have doubts about the outcome of a situation try to avoid that situation. If you cannot avoid a situation ask others for help and pray to God for the help you need.

Do not stay in a state of uncertainty over actual or potential problems. A potential problem is a problem that has not occurred or may never occur. Do not cry over milk that has been spilled as it can always be replenished. Do not make a mountain out of an ant hill. Keep busy with friends travel, hobbies, reading and enjoying nature and live everyday to its full potential with no worries. God knows everything that you think about every minute of your life and he will carry your worries away. God will lead the way for a better and new tomorrow for you and yours.

Do your best to pass along Gods message to others that enter into your life. Be kind to others and thank them when they are kind to you.

God wants us to help each other as we journey through life on Earth. Check on your loved ones often and help those who need a little extra boost in their life. If someone makes a mistake forgive them and move forward in your relationship with them. God forgives us for our sins so we should not do any less for others. Holding a grudge only destroys you and not the other person as they will not even give it another thought.

God wants us to protect and help others that we meet in our lives. Visit and talk with others as often as you can.

Join a group of people that share the same interest as you do and all of you will reap the benefits.

Ridicule

No one wants to be ridiculed. Taking a joke to far is a form of ridicule. Some things are not a joking matter no matter how you may see it. If the party is not taking the joke how you intended it to be taken then stop immediately. Carrying a joke to far hurts everyone involved in the end. Friends may be lost and business deals could be broken.

Teasing someone endlessly gets old and annoying to the person on the receiving end. Teasing can get out of hand very quickly and is a behavior that a bully might present. Teasing can be a way of putting someone down in their eyes. What you might think is very innocent is not innocent at all to the person at the receiving end.

Laughing at someone is also a form of ridicule. Would you like to be laughed at ? I am sure your answer is no. To laugh with someone is perfectly fine but to laugh at them is a big problem in my eyes and Gods eyes. Laughter is the best medicine when done correctly and with good intentions.

Mocking someones behavior is never good unless your a famous comedian and then it should be done with tact.  Always remember you could always be on the receiving end of ridicule. Mocking someones actions is mean and nasty. If you have to put someone down to feel good about yourself than you have a major problem.

Contempt is a feeling of disrespect. When you feel contempt toward another human being you may think of them as something and not a person or that they are worthless. No person is worthless in this World. God made each and everyone of us and no one is any better or any worse than the next guy. We are each one of Gods lambs in his flock.

Make sure you treat people with the upmost respect and never ridicule them for we are all created a like by the hand of God. Spread Gods good works today and always without ceasing.
