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

Our Humanity

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” - John C. Maxwell

Love never fails. - 1 Corinthians 13:8a

Muse: “be absorbed in thought” - New Oxford American Dictionary

Like birds on a wire
We line up note by note
Like keys on the board
We sing a heavenly song

But from what does our music come?
For whom does this muse sing?

Poems and lyrics and music we write
Some for ourselves maybe
Some for something more heavenly

Where do we go when we die?
Jesus said it’s a place He went to prepare
But what if I haven’t been good enough?
Good enough to have peace when there?

Love conquers all it’s been said
So we sing like our lives aren’t made of lead
We feel like our hearts aren’t made of steel

How can this be true…
Our humanity? 

All seemed lost
We couldn’t pay the cost
Death had us trapped
But Jesus has us saved

  1. How did I help someone in kindness today?
  2. What did I learn today?
  3. What am I thankful for?
  4. Who did I love today?
  5. What am I dreaming of?

Thanks for reading,

Jake
