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

Love Stands


Love is, without question, life's greatest experience.” Napoleon Hill

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Diffuse: “spread or cause to spread over a wide area or among a large number of people” New Oxford American Dictionary

Every once in a while, I'm come across a message that is so perfectly true and summed up so succinctly that what I have to say seems utterly insignificant and hopelessly redundant. When love is experienced whole heartedly with honesty and passion, it cannot help but become diffuse around whoever experiences it. That's what makes it so great. Love truly conquers all. Just read the lyrics to this song performed by “The Pretenders” and Carrie Underwood and see if you can't feel the love it conveys.

I'll Stand by You
(Songwriters: Billy Steinberg; Tom Kelly; Chrissie Hynde)

Oh why you look so sad
The tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now

Don’t be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
Cause I’ve seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So if you're mad get mad
Don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now

Hey, what you got to hide
I get angry too
Well I’m a lot like you

When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
Cause even if you're wrong

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

Take me in into you darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you

And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

Take me in into you darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
Oh I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
