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. Go out and live your life as God wants you to. Remember God is always by your side or holding your hand.

Living Your Life As God Intended

Living your life as God intended is what life is all about on earth. Live your life in a gracious, faithful, caring, loving, joyful, hopeful, peaceful, kind and giving manner everyday that you are on Earth. 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. Being around others is good for your mental health as those that socialize a lot tend to live longer. Join a group of people that share the same interest as you do and all of you will reap the benefits.

God wants us to learn something new everyday so we don’t stagnate. Travel and enjoy new sights and sounds and discover no matter where you go we all want the same things out of life in general principals. We want to be happy and safe and secure in our life. We want someone to care about us. We cherish our time with our families.

W want to be children of God and live in his flock. We need to let others know what God has done for us. God is a wonderful guide and roll model for all of us to live a life that serves God and helps others on their path with their trials and tribulations. Lift up those who are down and heavy trodden-ed. Live a life with purpose that exemplifies all of Gods values and teachings.

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.

Anticipation

If we anticipate the worst in life that is generally what we will get. If you anticipate that good and positive things will come your way they most likely will. We have to be very patient in life.

If I have been worried about the outcome of a test score it was a waste of my time and energy. If I thought I would get an A on a class paper I generally would not because I got a little to confident in myself. Anticipate the proven which is if you study hard you will get an A on your test.

Life has many road blocks that you have to maneuver around to get to where you want to be in your life. You will eventually have health issues that you have to work around. You will have to find a new job or stop working altogether because of your health. Anticipate that you will still have many remarkable journeys and days ahead of you and never ever give up the fight.

Anticipate many days of sunshine and joyous memories in your life. Life is way too short to worry about trivial matters. Climb many mountains, reach for the stars, spend many hours with loved ones and with God by your side to be truly blessed  in your life.

When you wake up in the morning say to yourself “this the day the Lord hath made let us rejoice and be glad in it”. God has put animals on the earth for us to enjoy, flowers, plants, nature, stunning scenery and friends and family that bless our lives everyday.

 

Do not waste a single day of life as life is a precious gift from God. Help people, be kind, be genuine, be true to yourself and others. Learn something new everyday and share your many blessings with others freely. Anticipate that God will be by your side into eternity and beyond.

Fast Forward

When we are young and in school it seems like time stands still. We live in a fast paced world and things change and move along more quickly than we would like it to.

If you try to recreate an event that happened years ago you will not be able to. Buildings get torn down and people die or move away. I traveled to a place years ago as a child and went back thirty years later and what a grave disappointment that turned out to be. Part of the town was completely gone and the stores had boarded up windows.

Change is a constant and we have to adapt to changes in our life quickly to survive in a fast paced world. Computers get outdated quickly and we have to get used to a new computer about every three years. In the information age we have an answer to all of our questions ASAP on our smart phones. In ten years all banking will be done on line. We check in at the airport on our smart phones and at large hospitals.

Brick and mortar stores suffer because we buy everything online at a cheaper price. We should support our hometown stores and the money that they make is put back in your local community. I like to try on clothes as I do not like the hassle of going to the Post Office to return the item if it does not fit from the online store. Local stores help you out when you have a problem with an item you purchased from them. An online store may take weeks to get back to you.

We must support change. Changes discover new medicines and cures for illnesses that effect all of us eventually. Without change we would stagnate and never move forward. The older we get the harder it becomes for us to embrace change but we must remember that change may save our life someday.

Unsettled

Do you feel you are unsettled in your life ? Are you undecided in where you want to be in your life ?  All of us have ongoing concerns that seem almost impossible to resolve on our own. I ask God for guidance in my life when I feel unsettled about something. Talk over reoccurring events that you cannot seem to find a solution to with your friends as two heads are better than one on solving those tough problems.

If you feel you have lost direction in your life maybe it is time to take your life in a different more positive direction. If your job or someone makes you feel you lack a purpose in life stay away from that person and find a different job ASAP. Do not let another persons negativity rob you of your positive attitude towards life.

Being unsettled on issues is very nerve racking. Do not stay unsettled for too long as it will make you doubt your effort to rise above the storms in life. Being directionless in life makes it easy for someone to guide you in the wrong direction as to almost a point of no return. Never let another person control your life or have too much power over you so they can lead you down a road of no return.

Sometimes if someone is sad or not feeling good about themselves they want everyone else in their life to feel as miserable as they do. If you let them succeed you will be swirling around in a vortex that will take all of the joy and happiness out of your life. Try to help out people that are suffering as much as you can without taking the wind out of your own sails. Life is never easy as there are a lot of pitfalls and events that happen to us that we think are unfair.

Lift people up and never put them down and try to bring joy and happiness into their lives if they will let you in. We try to do our best for people but sometimes it is not enough to make them feel better about themselves. Pray to God to help your family and friends find the joy and happiness that everyone deserves to have in their life.

Look At The Total Picture In Life

What do you want to do with your life ? Will your life impact others or  help them ? Set goals everyday for yourself that will help other people. Live within your means of what is truly possible to achieve. Don’t waste time on a project that is going nowhere  and that will bring you down with it.

Life is full of  upsets and unexpected events. Roll with the event if at all possible and do not let the event roll over you. In the total picture of life not every event will come into focus or even get off of the drawing board. Events get postponed or are a grave disappointment. Some events are the events of a lifetime and those are the ones that leave people talking and planning for years to come.

How do you picture yourself in life ? Are you happy with the way things are going or do you think you should step it up a notch or two. Change will never happen in your life unless you greet change with open arms. The older we get change happens very quickly. We cannot do all the things that we long to do any longer because of age or sickness. It is time to find a new you before you get stuck in a sinkhole that will take you down.

God knows all of the battles we have fought and he sees the whole picture of our lives. God is the one that can help you help others more effectively and positively. Always share your knowledge with others so it will not get buried eventually along with you.

Smile and put a smile on someone else’s  face today. Socialize with others as often as you can. People that socialize tend to live longer than those that do not. Always look at the whole picture in life and do not get fixated on one small detail or event in life. Remember to ride out lives storms and get back in sink with yourself and others quickly. Life waits for no man.

Wills and Estates

Wills and Estates can get very intense and bring out the worst in some people. The beneficiaries in the will seem to have a feeling of entitlement over another person. Families can breakdown completely  over the contents stated in the will and never communicate with each other ever again.

Sometimes if people find out you are sick they will say when you are done with that particular item I would sure like to have it. The sick person will not be giving you anything because you are like a vulture looking over its prey. People that are sick or dying want genuine friends that are loving and caring and not greedy and conniving people by their side.

You have a union that was made in heaven with your brothers and sisters. All of you share the same blood and the same parents and all of you are Gods children. Their is sibling rivalry in all households but do not carry that into adulthood and let it break your bond as brothers and sisters over material possessions and how they are distributed when your parents die. Remember your children learn from your examples. Do you want to be treated like you are treating the person that is dying when you are dying ? I think not.

People have a right to write their will however they want to. I have heard of people asking someone to tell another person to tell the sick person for them to include them in their will. I have heard of people at someones deathbed to say to them please include me in your will. You have gone way to far if you ever do that and greed has won over your soul.

I have heard of adult children clearing out a house and taking things that still actually their parents for their own use. If you are doing that you are stealing from your own parents. Your parents have raised you and nurtured you for years  and they are entitled to your upmost respect and love in their golden years.

Money and greed are truly the root of all evil. Money does not love you but it may consume your every waking hour if you let it. Brothers and sisters and friends are the true Gold that you better hang onto in good times and in bad times for they share your joys and your sorrows. Money does not care at all about your joys and sorrows but it can make you into a sorry excuse for a human being.

God likes a generous and loving, caring and compassionate human being that cares for and respects people without wanting something in return. Greed takes you down a dead end road that you stay on forever. Be generous and loving to a fault.

Excellent

Are you putting your best effort into every job that you do ? I hope that you are and then we can say you are doing an excellent job. Always complete any job that you do to perfection. God is wonderful and perfect in everything that he does.

When working with people be wonderful to them so you can be worthy of their trust in you. Visit with people in a kind, caring, compassionate and loving manner. When helping someone always do an exceptional job that you can be proud of. If you are not proud after you complete a task, job or chore you have gone about it in the wrong way.

Be outstanding in your community and offer a lending hand when necessary. Get involved with things that will benefit your community. Read your local paper and see what is needed in your community that you could possibly help with. Sometimes it just takes one person to make remarkable changes that will benefit many people for years to come. Check on up coming projects in your community that you may be willing to support monetarily or volunteer your time to.

 

Be an admirable person with outstanding values that you can pass on down to future generations. Be a respected person in your community and always act in a respectable manner where ever you go and  in what ever you do. Always watch your mannerisms and your language. It is OK not to agree with someone but it is not OK to call people names and make fun of them. We all like different things which is a good thing because think of how boring it would be if we all liked the same things in life. We would all be driving the same color and kind of car, etc.

Be excellent, admirable, worthy and a truly wonderful person in this World that helps others always in positive ways day after day.
