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

Have a Song!


"Those who wish to sing always find a song." Swedish Proverb

Cast your burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain you: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalms 55:22

Chuffed:  "quite pleased"  Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Smiling is much better than scowling, and singing is much better than yelling.  So why do we find ourselves frowning and yelling at times?  Yes, there are things that insight justifiable anger and outbursts, but so much of the time we find ourselves unhappy with no discernible reason. We gather possessions and don't find happiness, plunge into desired relationships without finding satisfaction, and sometimes even give to charity without finding peace of mind.  I believe so much of our loathing comes from self indulgence, or the idea that we can provide for our spirits as well as bodies. We forget we have a loving God that set aside His Holy Spirit to tend our souls. Nothing we can do can replace what He can achieve in our hearts. When we don't have a song, He has one, when we don't have desire, He can plant it, when we don’t have peace of mind, He can sooth our souls.  With Him, we can rest assured of many songs to be sung.
