The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

Message for November 19, 2010

The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken.” 
Henry W. Longfellow“

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

Assurance: “a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise” New Oxford American Dictionary

As I was flying home yesterday I was looking out the window of the airplane. Being fall, most of the ground was covered by clouds. As I was flying over the clouds I noticed as I'm sure many of you have, that the sky is so beautiful above the clouds. It made me think about life, in life we all go through rough patches where happiness seems scarce. But we have an assurance from God that, like the text says, He has good plans for us. Those rough patches are like the clouds that cover the sun. They're temporary, and there's always a beautiful sky waiting for us when they pass. Even when life itself is a struggle, we know God is waiting to take us home with Him above the clouds.
