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 Sky's Always Blue


The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken.” 
Henry W. Longfellow“

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

Assurance: “a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise” New Oxford American Dictionary

As I was flying home one day, I found myself looking out the window of the airplane I was in. Being fall, it was a cloudy day, and from my vantage point, most of the ground was obscured by clouds. As we flew over the clouds I noticed something. As I'm sure many of you have. I noticed that the sky was so beautiful above the clouds. And it got me thinking about life. In life, we all go through rough patches where happiness seems scarce and joy seems fleeting. But we have an assurance from God that, like the text says, He has good plans for us. Those rough patches are like the clouds that cover the sun, they're temporary. There's always a beautiful sky waiting for us when they pass. Even when life itself is a struggle, we know God is waiting to take us home with Him. Waiting to take us to a home where clouds can never blot out the sun. A home where nothing will ever again obscure the Son. Today, let's build on our relationship with God. Let's open the doors of our hearts to Jesus. He wants it to be His home. He wants us to share our home with Him so that He can share His with us. Seems like a fair trade to me.
