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

“You don't have to feel like a waste of space, you're original, cannot be replaced.  If you only knew what the future holds, after a hurricane comes a rainbow.  Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed, so you could open one that leads you to the perfect road.  Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow, and when it's time, you'll know.  You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine, just own the night like the fourth of July, 'cause baby you're a firework.”  Katy Perry, from the song Firework

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  The same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:15-16

Radiate:  “(of a person) clearly emanate (a strong feeling or quality) through their expression or bearing”  New Oxford American Dictionary

We are all fireworks.  We've been given qualities that are unique and valuable unlike any other person.  Every one of us can change the world around us, and we will, whether we want to or not.  But it is our choice whether we want to celebrate the qualities we've been given, so that God's nature can be radiated through us and throughout the world.  Let's try to remember that we are God's fireworks and He wants us all to be a part of the most amazing grand finale we could never imagine.  All we need to do is let Him light the fuse.
