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 Emanation of God's Love


“Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.” Michael Jackson

“God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31

Emanate: “(of something abstract but perceptible) issue or spread out from (a source)” New Oxford American Dictionary

On sundays people around the world join in fellowship for the common goal of worshiping God together. People study the Word of the Lord and search for insight and guidance from our Creator. While it is important to dig deeply into God's Word for the edification of our lives, sometimes it is important to step back and start at the beginning. Wherever we look we are surrounded by the results of creation. While we have tarnished it by desiring and ultimately choosing to know good and evil, it still emanates the love of God for us, because creation itself is an emanation of His love for us. Whether it's the luscious beauty of the tropics, the grandeur of Yosemite, or the serene beauty of the deserts, God has created something to stir the passions and awe of every human. 1 John 4:8 says that, “God is love,” let's look around and see what His love has done for us.
