Today Matters

I'm reading John Maxwell's audiobook, Today Matters and as can be expected it has some great nuggets in it.

It has quick take-always. I love writings like that. Easy-breezy tidbits. Maxwell has many of them in this book. One of the book's reminders was what he called the secret of our success. He said it lies in what we do today and success and failure are a process. In other words it takes a while for either to happen and each one depends on what we do daily to cultivate them. How we use each plays into how we turn out. We're either getting closer to one or closer to the other. Which one does your daily routine point?

"Today's attitude gives me possibilities" (John Maxwell).

In the book he also talked about having a positive attitude and the importance of how it shapes our destiny. As you can surmise, being successful comes with a positive attitude, an optimistic outlook, and a faithful perceptive.

I will keep you posted as I read more. Just know that you have the power to control how you respond to the good and the bad. And you deserve the great things God has for you. Continue to trust Him. I often talk about that in my blog posts, because trusting in God is paramount. It consists of having a positive attitude about how God will work in our lives, which determines our successes and failures. You must believe the Lord will move in your life. Believe and start there. "Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who diligently (earnestly) seek him" (Hebrews 11:6).

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
