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 December 08, 2010

“When written in Chinese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters; one represents danger and the other represents opportunity.” John F. Kennedy

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Crossroads: “a point at which a crucial decision must be made that will have far-reaching consequences” Hew Oxford American Dictionary

Ok, so we all know what the word “crossroads” refers to. But the reason I decided to put it in today’s message is because it happens to be a synonym of crisis. We all have times when we go through particular crisis’, and in most cases we can’t change that. What we can do is change the way we react to crisis’. The best way to do that I think is to change the way we define crisis, from a definition that is completely negative to a definition that is as much positive as negative. Yes, every crisis comes with its challenges, but also with opportunity. Let’s try to view crisis as a crossroads in life where we can choose to make the best of the opportunities it affords instead of succumbing to its challenges.
