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

With Him


God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.” J.G. Holland


Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matthew 6:26

Dole: “a charitable gift of food, clothes, or money” New Oxford American Dictionary

Isn't it amazing how God can take things that aren't necessarily good and turn them into something valuable? Thorns on a rose bush are a nuisance to us, but they also preserve the beauty of their flowers by protecting them from animals who would destroy them. Clouds hide the sun and it's vitamin D-giving-rays, and their rain can cause mudslides and floods, but without it, the flora and fauna that make the world a beautiful place would not exist, and the world would be an uninhabitable place. In the same way, hard work can make our muscles sore and stretch our mental capacities, but it provides a satisfaction little else can match. Faith and trust in God makes everything purposeful and puts everything into perspective. With Him, the worst of situations are illuminated with the light of hope. Without Him, all the possessions and accomplishments in the world are empty and worthless. Let's put our trust in God, trust that He can bless us with more happiness than any of our efforts could ever achieve. Let's trust in Him and see what He will provide.
