There’s a competition going on inside of you every day. Our desire to improve ourselves is competing with the demands of everyday living. Never get too busy staying alive to figure out how to live.
This is the place to find personal updates, thoughts about reform and change, entrepreneurial musings, and more — original work from Rhidale, uploaded by his friends on the outside.
God created you for a purpose and He will never require anything more of you than your best; but He will allow you to grow. As you press on, persist, endure, and strain against what you believed were your boundaries, in His infinite wisdom, He considers the value of your learning.
Life is here for living. I will no longer simply exist. I am FREE! Whose will is stronger? Eliminate the fears through love. Fear cannot exist in love.
There is nothing in this world that will ever prevent God from accomplishing that He has set out to do in my life. He has promised me His best, and He cannot lie. I already have the desires of my heart. Remain at peace. Know and trust the Lord your God is good and blesses you continually… without fail or exception
Develop your availability to handle, manage, receive, and grow from God’s blessings.
Life is about growth and flow. Why would God send wealth or any of the treasures in life to a destination that would cause them to become stagnant?
You can only lose if you desire to do so! Choose life. Choose abundance. Choose joy, happiness, fulfillment, strength, excellence, and love. Choose substance, and only choose principles.
All you can do is succeed… why succeed in the dark?
I could spend countless days in the dark, but for what? Why choose to dwell in thoughts of loss, pain, misery, and neglect? My circumstances do not dictate my thoughts. In only a few moments I can bring light to those dark places. When I shift my thinking from grumbling to gratitude – I have conquered!
Get tired of being tired. Seriously take a look at your circumstances, take a look within yourself, then DECIDE whether or not you are willing to move forward.
If not, give up! You really don’t have anything to lose anyway. If you’re no longer willing to grow, then you’ve already decided to die.
Building A Better Perspective
Imagine being a very important builder. You show up to a work site, kind of life on an Undercover Boss mission. You see two stonemasons working about 30 feet apart. You talk up to the first and ask, “do you like your job?”
He looks up at you and says, “I’ve been building this wall as long as I can remember. The work is monotonous. I work in the scorching hot sun all day. The stones are heavy and lifting them day after day can be back breaking. I’m not even sure if this project will be completed in my lifetime. But it’s a job. It pays the bills.” You thank him for his time and walk on.
About thirty feet away, you walk up to a second stonemason. You ask him the same question: “do you like your job?”
He replies “I love my job. I’m building a cathedral. Sure, I’ve been working on this wall for as long as I can remember, and yes, the work is sometimes monotonous. I work in the scorching hot sun all day. The stones are heavy and lifting them day after day can be backbreaking. I’m not even sure if this project will be completed in my lifetime. But I’m building a cathedral.”
What these two stonemasons are doing is exactly the same. The difference is, one understands and cares about the purpose of the work.
