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 22, 2010

"God didn't call us to be superstars, He called us to be servants; He didn't call us to be successful, He called us to be faithful."  Pete Maravich

Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

Servant:  "a devoted and helpful follower or supporter"  New Oxford American Dictionary

I think many people are afraid to commit their lives to God because they believe in doing so they will sacrifice what they have on earth.  But what many don't realize I think, is that God wants to provide us with happiness.  In doing so He is capable of providing more earthly possessions than we ever thought possible, on top of that, a relationship with Him has a way of making us supremely satisfied with what we have.  Remember king Solomon asked God for wisdom and he was granted not only wisdom, but the greatest wealth that had ever been known.  Let's try to build our relationship with our heavenly father in order to better realizes His presence, ask Him to bless us, and see how satisfying a life devoted to God can be.
