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

Just Say It


“Say the words, say the words, say I love you.”  Toby Mckeehan and Mark Heimermann  (From the song “Say the Words” by DC Talk)
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.  Romans 13:8 (New International Version)
Munificence:  “the quality or action of being lavishly generous; great generosity”  New Oxford American Dictionary
Just do it!  Just do it?  Just say it.  Say it again, and again and again.  I love you.  The three little words that describe the reason for this world, the motivation for this world, and the inspiration that makes this world a beautiful place.  Without love, there is no “doing.”  Without love, we can’t “just” anything.  With love, we move mountains.  With love, we sail the oceans.  And with love we stoop on bended knee.  But how do we know love.  It’s ultimate expression depends on the individual.  For some, doing means everything, for others, attitude means everything, and there are those who appreciate the spoken word most.  For some the words come with difficulty, for others they flow naturally, but for everyone, they are perhaps the most powerful words in existence.  I love you.  There’s something vulnerable about that phrase.  Saying it with honesty means opening our hearts.  Saying it with honesty means we have to care.  Saying it with honesty means we can’t hide our feelings.  Let’s be free with our hearts.  Let’s be munificent with our love.  Let’s be honest, open, and sincere, and let the people we love know it.  That usually takes more than just words.  But the words are a requirement.
