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 Power of Trust

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”  Oprah Winfrey
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.  Psalms 23
Struggle:  “strive to achieve or attain something in the face of difficulty or resistance”  New Oxford American Dictionary
We all live in a world full of dangers, hardships, and setbacks.  But those things can only negatively control us if we let them effect our minds.  I often see babies put in positions that would scare most adults (for example being tossed in the air), but they don't cry or worry.  They smile because they enjoy the ride, not even comprehending the possible dangers they face, because they have complete trust in their loving parent.  We are all that baby being tossed around.  Just remember God has us in his grasp and He will not let us fall as long as we choose to stay in His arms.
