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

There is an Answer


It is our decisions, not our conditions that determine the quality of our lives.” Tony Robins

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:5-8

Upbraid: “find fault with (someone); scold” New Oxford American Dictionary

I think we could all agree, most of the time our decisions determine our conditions. So if we want to improve our conditions, we need to make the correct decisions. But the question remains. Being fallible people, how do we make the correct decisions? James make's it clear. God want's to be our source of wisdom. He is waiting for us to let Him guide our lives and our decisions. He doesn't want to upbraid us, He want's to assist us, so that we can have a better quality of life than we ever thought possible. So let's never forget to ask God what He thinks, it's not likely we'll hear an audible answer (maybe we will), but if we pay attention in faith, we will discover, an answer is there.
