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're Beautiful

“You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
You are made so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You’re beautiful

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious 
Of all the earth and skies above
You’re the one He madly loves
Enough to death

You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
In His eyes”

- Excerpt from the song You’re Beautiful by MercyMe 

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. - Philippians 4:8

Beautiful: “of a very high standard; excellent” - New Oxford American Dictionary

You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
The very Hope of our nations
You’re beautiful

Changing our thoughts… I can’t think of anything more difficult. How do we erase the images that appear in our minds? How do we feel differently about our abusers? How do we let the thoughts of our brain remain positive, in love, and beautiful? There is only one Hope. That is in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We were made and are made beautiful. In His image. Because of His love. He is our Hope. That is true. He is honorable. He made justice. He lived pure. What could be more lovely? He is fully commendable. Because He is most excellent. Is there any more worthy of praise? Never! So how do we change our thoughts? By changing our focus we change our destiny. By changing our focus we see His face. The Hope of our nations.

 Can you feel it? 
That smile on your face
Formed by the hope of His grace
You’re beautiful
