Getting beyond disappointment

Posted on September 24, 2014 at 4:28 PM Comments comments (14)
Life will disappoint you on a regular basis, in ways that are big and small. The way to get beyond each disappointment is to get busy doing something positive and meaningful.  It’s easy to get caught up in assigning blame, or speculating on how things might have been different, or feeling anger and resentment. None of those things, however, will add any value to your life. Choose instead to let the disappointment make you stronger and more positively determined. Acknowledge it, and then step forward from it with productive and meaningful action. When you feel like indulging in self-pity, take that as a prompt to break free from the negative pattern. Use it as an opportunity to initiate an improvement in your world. Disappointment is a fact of life, but it never has to weigh you down for very long. You can always decide to focus on the positive possibilities in the present moment instead of the shortcomings in the past. Make the smart choice, and live by intention rather than by chance. Whatever may happen, use it as a starting point for making life better.

It Aint Always Easy

We often hear sayings like, “Favor aint fair.”  Pastor C.D. Wallace often says, “Its hell living for JESUS but its hell living without him.” I know firsthand that life is not easy.  But then, it doesn’t really have to be easy to be great the bible tells us so.  A meaningful god filled life is never easy. And yet, as difficult as it is, that achievement will bring great satisfaction, value and inspiration to your life.  Having a relationship with God is not easy.  But, that relationship can bring immense happiness to every aspect of your existence. It’s not easy to stay disciplined or focused or physically fit.  It’s not easy to manage dozens of conflicting priorities.  Even so, when you choose to deal with life’s challenges and difficulties as they come, you are able to transform them. You have the opportunity to transform those ups and downs, those frustrations, discomforts and inconveniences into genuine fulfillment. Yes, many times life is not easy. And yet it is precisely because of the difficulties that you’re able to make life great. When life deals you a lemon make lemonade don’t just sit there and suck on the lemon. James 1:2-4James 1:2-4

Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active. -- Edith Hamilton
When some things go wrong, take a moment to be thankful for the many more things that are still going right. To find a sure and dependable way through your troubles, start by counting your blessings. Focus on what you can do and you won’t have to be held back by what you cannot do. Value and appreciate what you do have, and you will no longer be limited by what you don’t have.True abundance begins with gratitude. The more thankful you are for the good things you have, the more they will grow to have even greater value.With gratitude in your heart, your eyes can see more clearly. You’ll discover ways for moving forward that you otherwise would never have noticed. Before you blame, before you worry, before you resent or despair, take a moment to be truly thankful. See the world from the perspective of gratitude and see what a powerful positive difference it can make.

Proverbs 28:1
The wicked flee when no one is pursuing,But the righteous are bold as a lion.
Here’s a test to determine whether you are truly committed to something: do you feel the need to prove it? If so, then you’re not completely committed.True commitment is not defensive, but rather is completely confident. At first blush, this may seem strange. After all, if you’re totally committed to something, whether it is an idea or a person or a business or a nation, you should be willing to defend it. Well, that’s close. But take it a step further.When you’re completely committed to something, there is no NEED to defend it. There is only the desire to EXPRESS it as completely as possible.Think of that the next time you find yourself in a debate or heated discussion. Who are you really trying to convince -- your detractor or yourself? If you’re arguing defensively, you yourself are probably no more convinced than your “opponent.” Arguments and debates rarely produce any change in thinking.We project our doubts on to those around us. And when you have no doubts, there is no need to defend. You are a confident expression of your commitment. Effective persuasion begins with total commitment.

I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me". Philippians 4:13------No matter how far you’ve fallen behind, you can choose at any point to start moving forward. Even though nothing else may be going your way, you can decide to get your thoughts and actions going your way. Success is a function of your direction and persistence, not your starting point. When you’re ready to start making a positive difference in your own life and in the lives of others, any starting point will do just fine. You are where you are, so accept and embrace the situation. Then find some valuable and useful aspect of it that you can utilize to get yourself going.From where you are, you can move in any direction you choose. From where you are, you can eventually reach any destination you are committed to reaching.It will happen not because of where you’ve already been or what others have told you. It will happen when you decide to make it happen. Now is when you can make that decision, and take control of your future. From where you are, with your passion to make it happen, anything is possible.

Eyes Wide Closed

Posted on September 6, 2011 at 1:30 PM Comments comments (6)
It seems so obvious as to almost go without saying: When you look for  something you will find it. How many suburbans or tahoes did you see on the road before you got one? You probably don't remember seeing any. So today try looking for a suburban or a tahoe and you'll see plenty of them. When you seek something you see everything that happens to you from a new perspective. You'll easily find opportunities that would not otherwise be apparent to you. One of the best known bible passages from the book of Matthew Chapter 7 sums up the utter power and simplicity of this concept: Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find, knock, and it shall be opened to you. For everyont whp ask receives and he who seeks find and to him who knocks it shall be opend. This is completely reasonable and makes perfect sense. If you want something you must seek it not whine and complain about the lack of it, not wish for it but seek it. The very act of seeking something starts the process that brings that something into being for you. In fact, once you are truly seeking something then from that moment on you have it. The fact that it is not yet completely manifested in front of you doesn't really matter that much because you are living as if you already have it. So in that sense, you do already have it and if you continue in your commiment you will in fact have it soon.
