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

What's Your Royal Jelly?


“The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others.” St. John Chrysostom

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water.” John 4:10

Transcend: "to rise above or go beyond the limits of" Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

For two days nurse bees feed a female bee larvae royal jelly, after that they feed them pollen sometimes also known as bee’s bread.  But every once in a while the nurse bees continue feeding a female larvae royal jelly until she spins a cocoon, and when she emerges she is a queen.  What is our royal jelly?  To the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well Jesus said, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst."  John 4:13-14  Jesus offered her "living water." Jesus offers us all His living water, it's our royal jelly to transform us from ordinary to extraordinary creatures of God, transcended from what we once were.  Let's make an effort to ask for the living water that is eternal and put our mortal quenching into it's proper perspective.  To Satan in the desert, Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  Matthew 4:4  It is not only the physical things of this world that empower us, it is the spiritual as well.  The physical nutrients of this world give us the ability to live in this world.  But it’s the spiritual things, like God’s Royal Jelly, that give us the ability to thrive, to be more than who we could be on our own.  Let’s be more than who we are!
