Catching Fish In A Jar – Courtesy of Insight of The Day When I was between eleven and twelve years old I decided one bright sunny day that it would be fun to go fishing. I didn’t have any fishing gear and I had never done much fishing other than to play on the stream banks while my father fished. I also didn’t want to “hurt” the fish I just wanted to catch them and then let them go. I looked around the house for what I could use and I found a washed out old mayonnaise jar. You know the old style jars with the big open “mouth”. I walked to a nearby pond and put the jar down in the soft dust-like mud of the water’s edge with the open “mouth” of the jar facing toward the center. I then stirred the waters a little and made them cloudy so that the fish would have trouble seeing me. Then I waited hovering over the jar. Gradually, cautiously a small fish would swim up to the clear jar to investigate the disturbance and when it swam into the jar I dropped my hand into the water and over the more »

Belief and Commitment

“Unless a man believes in himself and makes a total commitment to his career and puts everything he has into it– his mind, his body and his heart—what is life worth to him? If I were a salesman, I would make this commitment to my company, to the product and most all, to myself.” Vince Lombardi

Your Friday Story “Keep On Dancing”

Keep On Dancing Courtesy of  Insight of the Day If you are feeling like you have gotten a little “off track” with your intentions this year, not to worry. Be gentle with yourself. Take a few minutes to read today’s post, and just remember to “Keep On Dancing”. What I have noticed lately, is that things don’t always seem to happen for the reasons we think, and that can be perfect for us. I started several projects in the last few weeks, that did not work out the way I thought they would, or the way I wanted them to, thank God. Because they did not work out, space was created for something much better to come into my life. And so, I was able to better understand, that it is not always about the end result of a choice or a project, but how taking that step to go for it in the first place, makes you feel. What is important, is that you take some inspired action, because your vibration while you are doing something that excites you, and you are passionate about, is what will bring you the essence of what you wanted in the first place. more »

Words of Wisdom From Will Smith

Living an exceptional life and success strategies from Will Smith

Be Strong and Courageous

Be Strong and Courageous Read Proverbs 3:21 – My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight. In fearful times, sound judgment and discernment become a compass in the dark. It is easy for one to lose his way when he cannot see because of the thick clouds and the darkness of the storms of life. The man who can cling to the Word of God and let it guide him will find that the journey through those dark moments will be brief. Those who do not make time to learn the truths in the Word of God are without true navigation in times of trouble. Have the courage to trust the Word today so that you can find your way in the darkness tomorrow.  From HonorBound

Be Strong and Courageous

Be Strong and Courageous Read Psalm 23:4 – Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. “Nothing builds character better than walking though life’s valleys. The valleys of death are frightening and dangerous places which many times make us feel as though we are walking through them alone. We can be strong and courageous in these valleys because we know that God is with us. Men who have gone through valleys without His presence have been destroyed because of the evil found there. Men who walk with God in the valley are energized to change the world.”  From HonorBound Devotion:

Do not doubt yourself

Do not doubt yourself, for where doubt resides, confidence cannot. Do not neglect yourself, for with neglect comes loss. Do not imagine yourself to be less than you are, nor more than you are, but seek always to become all of which you are capable. Do not allow yourself to become arrogant or discourteous, for both are characteristics adopted by those who seek to cover their weaknesses. Do not spend time regretting the past, but invest that time wisely by preparing a better future. You are a fertile seed of the creator of all things, destined not to lie dormant, but to spring forth from the soil called life, and grow upward toward the unlimited horizons – overcoming all obstacles in the process. It is your destiny to tap your talents and to achieve all that of which you believe yourself to be worthy.…to love more, anticipate more, overcome more, plan more, attract more, and to enjoy more than you ever dreamed possible. Such is the standard of life awaiting your mental decision and outstretched hand. You are deserving – you are becoming – and you shall succeed. Jim Rohn – The Seasons of Life

Determination

Determination Read 2 Chronicles 15:7 – But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. Determination is based on the fact that your work and effort is going to pay off in the end. You will never know how close you come to victory if you quit. Keep praying and working for the Lord and He will make His presence known in your life. You may not feel strong or courageous, but do not go by your feelings. Keep your mind on the reward, not the enemy. God is bigger than your problem and stronger than your enemy. HonorBound Devotion
