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

Ya Gotta Get Dedicated

“Dedication is not what others expect of you, it is what you can give to others.”  Author Unknown

You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.   Psalm 139:15-16

Christen:  "to name or dedicate (as a ship) by a ceremony suggestive of baptism"  Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

Throughout our lives we see the christening and dedicating of multitudes of things, sometimes even humans.  There's a reason.  Dedicating something immediately places value on it, because it makes its purpose known and understood.  The object dedicated becomes a tool for the purpose it is intended for.  If dump trucks weren't dedicated to hauling dirt and gravel they would stop being useful and become wasteful hulks of steel, menacing the streets and highways.  If ships weren't dedicated to crossing oceans and seas they would rust in port and waste away towards ruin.  In the same way, if we're not dedicated for a purpose, a part of us is being wasted. Just as engineers create machines for a purpose and industries dedicate them towards it; God designed and created us for a purpose.  However, it is our job to dedicate ourselves to it.  Let’s get dedicated.
