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

Celebrate! March 19, 2011

Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!” Amanda Bradley

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Roister: “enjoy oneself or celebrate in a noisy or boisterous way” New Oxford American Dictionary

Everything has to have a balance. Just like too much roisterous celebration is not productive towards a fulfilled life, too much serious contemplation can negatively affect certain aspects of our life as well. When the Psalmist, King David got excited about something he celebrated. When the prodigal son returned home, his father celebrated. And we're told that when one person comes to Christ, all of heaven rejoices. It is important to celebrate the gifts we have in life. It's important, not only for our own psyche but also to our loved ones who share an interest in our lives. Let's not go overboard, but let's try to notice the blessings we have and recognize ours and others accomplishments and make sure they're celebrated. After all if they're not appreciated, what value are they?
