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

Living with Reliance


We are never defeated unless we give up on God.” Ronald Reagan

But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil. Proverbs 1:33

Reliance: “dependence on or trust in someone or something” New Oxford American Dictionary

Lincoln once remarked that, “[He] would be the greatest fool on this footstool called earth, if [he] ever thought that for one moment [he] could perform the duties of [his] office without help from one that is stronger than all.” Many believe Lincoln to be the greatest president in United States history, yet there are so many who believe faith in an unseen God to be reckless if not down right foolish. In times of difficulty, let's all try to remember Lincoln. While leading this country through some of the most difficult times it has ever known, he was not afraid to rely on the Almighty. It gave him the courage to carry on with tasks never asked of anyone before him or since. In that light, why should we hesitate to trust in God in whatever we do? I don't think there are many who would call Lincoln a foolish man, so let's not take it seriously when anyone tries to label us as foolish for following his example. We can all be great, God promises that.
