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

What God Wants


Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Benjamin Franklin

Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet."They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now." John 2:8-10

Delectation: “delight, enjoyment” Merriam-Webster Dictionary

You may believe that drinking is wrong, and that is perfectly fine, there is great wisdom in abstaining from alcohol. But that is not the point I want to make with the quote and Bible verse today. The point I want to make is this, “God loves us and wants us to be happy.” There are many things in life besides beer that provide satisfaction and happiness, and God, like a loving father, wants to provide it for us. Look at the trees, at the sunrise, at the way an eagle soars. If we stop and take a moment, it is quite amazing what God has provided for our delectation. I find it difficult to look at what God has surrounded us with and believe that He doesn't love us. If we concentrate on the beauty in life, I believe we won't be able to help but appreciate it more and more. Add to that that Christ's promise to prepare a place for us in His Father's house in John 14:3-4 and I have to believe, God really is saving the best for last. Considering the majestic creation we enjoy here on earth, I think we all have something unbelievable to look forward to in salvation.
