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

Let God be the Judge


Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.” Harvey Fierstein

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace. Ephesians 1:7

Righteous: “(of a person or conduct) morally right or justifiable” New Oxford American Dictionary

How many times have you turned on the TV or opened a magazine to see a celebrity, politician, or businessman completely vilified because of a mistake they made? Now how many times have you been in a situation where you acted foolishly and your mistakes were magnified to make you feel like a horrible person? I'm not saying faults or wrongdoings should be dismissed and automatically forgotten, but for those of you who are like me and have made mistakes, don't let the judgements of your peers determine who you are and what you will become. It makes no difference what you've done, it is up to you what you will become. God holds the power to determine your righteousness, not you, or anyone else. We may pay the price for wrongdoings on earth with our physical bodies, but our souls belong to God, and isn't it our souls that matters most? Let's let God be the judge.
