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

Get Tied Down


By seeing the seed of failure in every success, we remain humble. By seeing the seed of success in every failure we remain hopeful.” Unknown

For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:12

Extol: “praise ecclesiastically” New Oxford American Dictionary

As I was watching TV on an occasion, I happened to see a commercial featuring a kite. At the moment it struck me, kites can fly exceptionally well, but only if they are held back by a string. Life is kinda like that, it presents us with winds of opportunity and failure. It both extols and denigrates us. Without something grounding us and providing stability in our lives, we can be blown out of control. While we may soar high, eventually, without something to provide a base in our lives, we will crash. Our job is to find a base, to get tied to something, so that no matter what life presents, we will be able to harness it for our advantage. Moreover, that we will be harnessed for our purpose with the Lord.
