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

An Eclectic Life

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am 
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to  
It's true… I was made for you.  
- From the song The Story by Brandi Carlile

Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.  Proverbs 21:21

Eclectic: “deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources” - New Oxford American Dictionary

As humans we define the word eclectic.  Events in our lives, good and bad, have combined to make our worlds what they are today.  But nothing in the world can change who we are without our permission.  We have a heavenly Father that promises in Romans 8:28 that “Everything works together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.”  It is true, God has a purpose for all of us and the lines on all our faces are formed by events that can work together to fulfill that purpose if we choose.  Our stories are not necessarily something all of us can celebrate, but a relationship with God can make them something to appreciate.  It’s true…  We were made for Him.

Daily Journaling Questions:
How did I help someone in kindness today?
What did I learn today?
What am I thankful for?
Who did I love today?
What am I dreaming of?
What about today do I want to remember forever?
What are my goals for tomorrow?
Thanks for reading,

Jake
