Most employers that I worked for benefited from me successfully starting up and running their companies, divisions, and projects within their organization. In return for my efforts, these employers have gone on to be much more successful, and I simply just continued to earn my good steady salary and a few employee-of-the-month awards. To many people, that probably doesn’t seem so bad. And I did not have an issue an employee per se because it afforded me some of the luxuries I enjoy still enjoy in life, but my aim is to be free to earn a living without feeling like I am being taken advantage of or limited.Read More…
Romans 1:18-32 NLT
“But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, Read More…
Psalm 27 (NLT VERSION)
A psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,
so why should I tremble?
2 When evil people come to devour me,
when my enemies and foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
3 Though a mighty army surrounds me,
my heart will not be afraid.
Even if I am attacked,
I will remain confident. Read More…
Positive quotes for those facing adversity
When I face adversity, I seek God, His word and positive quotes! When trouble arises, remember to seek God for guidance, trust in Him only for your worries, stay as positive as possible, keep your head up and focus on bettering yourself.
Proverbs 4:23 (NLT) Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
I swear Joel Osteen writes his emails for me. I just wanted to share because I’m not the only one who needs encouragement.
“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.”
(Romans 5:3–4, NLT)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
The way you handle adversities has a huge impact on your success in life? If you shrink back, choose to get bitter and lose your enthusiasm, then you are allowing the difficulties of life to bury you. You are allowing hardship to keep you from your God-given destiny. But if you choose to keep pressing forward with a smile on your face, rejoicing even in the hard times, you are allowing God’s character to be developed inside of you. You are setting yourself up for promotion.
Think about this: the only difference between a piece of black coal and a priceless diamond is the amount of pressure that it’s endured. When you stand strong in the midst of the trials and difficulties in life, when you allow God to shape and mold your character, it’s like going from a piece of coal to a priceless diamond. Those difficulties are going to give way to new growth, new potential, new talent, new friendships, new opportunities, new vision. You’re going to see your life blossom in ways that you’ve never even dreamed!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father in heaven, thank You for giving me strength to overcome every obstacle in life. I choose to rejoice no matter what may come against me. I know You are working all things together for my good in Jesus’ name! Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
I saw this post about Faith and Destiny on Instagram so I had to repost this for encouragement and inspiration. Stay positive even you believe something did not work out in your favor. God will give you what you need, not necessarily what you want. And it will happen when it’s supposed to!
