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

The Good Things in Life


Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill

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

Byzantine: “Highly complicated; intricate and involved” The Free Dictionary

It's easy to fixate on the areas of life where we've failed or feel we've been treated unfairly. But life can be a byzantine process. If we could somehow see the entirety of life and existence, and see the true and lasting effects of our life's events on earth, I'm convinced we would see that from our current perspective, we really don't have any idea what is best for our lives. If only we could adjust our mindset to take advantage of bad situations and be cautious when times are good, I think we could enjoy much more happiness. I know it's easy for me to say, and I can't comment on some things, such as a death of a loved one, because, like everyone else, I lack the foresight to see the outcomes of life events, but I honestly can't think of anything that has failed in my life that hasn't turned out better than what my original plan was. The key is to have faith that God has a purpose for our life, if we choose to live for it. And if we live for His purpose, we can be assured that we will make a positive difference in this World and that this world will make a positive difference on us. That to me is priceless.
