Don’t expect people to understand your grind when God didn’t give them your vision.

But it so happens that those with hearts of gold appear to be the most cold.

My money didn’t come easy and neither do I

Take the time to tell her what she means to you because as quickly as you feel in love with the way her laugh made you laugh even when something wasn’t funny she could be gone and the sight of her walking away isn’t nearly as beautiful as the one of her walking towards you.

You showed me one important thing that no one else has ever been able to show me before. Not that I’m beautiful, not that I’m smart, not that I’m sweet, none of that. You showed me I was important there’s a reason I’m here.

I want to be your favorite place to go when you’ve had a bad day or a good day.

Don’t say you’ll ‘treat a girl like a princess’ unless you’re prepared to follow up on that shit. If I’m not living in a castle by the sea with diplomatic powers over a small country then you’re a bitch ass liar.

A true friend: doesn’t care when you’re broke, being a bitch, what you weigh, if your house is a mess, what you drive, about your past or if your family is crazy.

Girls like guys to take charge, plan a date, take a hostage, overthrow a government, nuke her ex’s hometown, buy her a kitten.

Like a rose: delicate like the petals but ruthless like the thorns.

I need more money and more sleep.

If they want you in their life they will find a way to put you there period.

I’ll probably come off as mean when you first meet me but after you really get to know me you’ll find out that I’m actually meaner.

Supporting another’s success won’t ever dampen yours.

Don’t waste another second of your thoughts on the ones who didn’t think enough about you to keep you.

I don’t flirt I just talk. It’s not my fault everything I say is smoother than the cream cheese spread on your bagel.

How to Avoid an Empty Life

In public, most people appear happy and confident. But beneath the surface, many feel empty. In fact, it is possible to be in a large crowd and yet still feel alone.

A lot of men and women see no meaning or purpose in life. Attempting to overcome the emptiness, some become busy, others turn to drugs or alcohol, and still others strive for more money, power or love. Though pleasure exists for them, it is usually short lived.

There’s a reason why life can feel empty: Man was created with a yearning that God alone is able to satisfy. Individuals can’t be fulfilled until they experience His transforming and unconditional love. Jesus said “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” In other words, the Lord wants us to feel complete, which can happen only through a relationship with Him.

However, even a person who is saved can feel empty. This could result from disobedience: a slight detour in one’s walk with the Lord can become a way of life, depriving a believer of deep satisfaction. It’s also possible for Christian’s to live according to God’s Word without fully surrendering their desires to Him. For example, many believers still try to fill up their own void with achievements, wealth or relationships. When aspirations like these are given higher priority than the Lord, they are a form of idolatry.

We can live a full live only when we seek God above all else. Pray for His guidance as you search your heart. Confess any sin, and ask God to fill your life as only He can do.

Keeping Our Eyes on His Goals

Have you ever attempted to walk in a straight line while looking at your feet? Try this on the beach sometime so you can look back at your footprints. You’ll probably be surprised at how crooked the path is. But fix your eyes upon something far away, and each step will point in the desired direction – toward that distant focal point.

Our lives are like this. If we set goals, then our decisions and thoughts will lead toward the desired end. On the other hand, if we humble along without specific aims, we will wander and waste much precious time and energy.

Goals are crucial to the well-lived life. Why, then, do so many people fail to formulate purposeful aims? Some simply do not see the importance of a plan, while others are too lazy to devise one or don’t know how to go about it. Then there are those who lack faith in God’s ability to help them achieve their aspirations.

Think about the many goals Jesus had- they drove all that He did. His daily aims involved such things as serving others and teaching those who sought righteousness. But more than that, our Savior centered everything on a primary purpose set even before time began, to lay down His life on the cross in order to save mankind from sin and glorify the Father.

We were created to glorify the Lord and be fruitful in His service. Imagine the impact our lives could have if we asked God to guide our goals. Pray, “What do You want to change about my life? What do You want to accomplish through me?” Let Him determine on what and on whom you focus.

Happy New Year

Think back to when you first came to God. Did you understand what to expect? The church’s missions is to faithfully proclaim the gospel, but we also have the responsibility to teach new believers how God works in our life once we are saved.

The first thing we can anticipate after salvation is to grow closer with the Lord. As with any relationship, this requires 2 way communication. We come to know and love God through His word, and in prayer we share our live with Him. As our understanding of Him deepens, trust will increase. We’ll see we have no reason to worry, because our Father always provides for our needs, whether phsyical, emotional or spiritual.

We can also expect clear guidance, if we align ourselves with His will and ways He promises to direct our path. At times His guidance is corrective, He also reminds us of scriptural truths and encourages obedience.

Difficulty can be another result of following Christ. Problems don’t just fade away once we come to Christ. In fact, everyone who chooses a godly lifestyle can expect misunderstanding, resistance, and even persecution. Furthermore believers aren’t exempt from the trials that afflict all of humanity.

As you begin a New Year of walking with Jesus remember you’re never alone in your struggles. And with Christ’s strength you can confidently face whatever comes your way.

Christmas Eve Quote Joy..

Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark.

Don’t let someone whose done nothing tell you how to do anything.

I own no explanations for my flaws. I don’t have to justify my mistakes, my past or my insecurities. I am growing and learning let me live.

Be bold enough to use your voice, love enough to listen to your heart and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined.

Let people do what they need to do to make them happy, mind your business and do what you need to do to make you happy.

If you’re not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you’re determined to learn no one can stop you.

The best is yet to come.

 

* To all my followers .. from my family to yours Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Indifference to Christmas

Image result for indifference to christmas

Each year there’s a predictable variety of responses to the celebrations & traditions of the holiday season. During the next few days I will examine 3 reactions to Christmas. Although 2000 years have passed since Christ was born His birth still elicits similar attitudes.

1 common response is indifference.Even if they are filled with the holiday spirit & celebrate with gifts, dinners, decorations & parties some people remain totally indifferent to Jesus. He doesn’t even cross their minds because they’ve lost sight of the reason for Christmas.

In the story of the magi’s search for the newborn King of the Jews we see a surprising indifference on the part of the religious leaders.The entourage from the East caused quite a stir in Jerusalem. It wasn’t every day that impressive visitors arrived with such a shocking and exciting announcement. Yet when King Herod asked the scribes and chief priests where the Messiah was to be born they simply told him the answer but made no attempt to go themselves. Their lives were already filled with their religious duties & they had no time or interest in anything that might disrupt their positions of prominence & authority.

Sometimes it’s easy to let the activities and pressures of Christmas push Jesus out of our thoughts. After all the shopping is finished the gifts are wrapped & the food is prepared we might rush off to a service but even then we often feel distracted. Though it may take deliberate refocusing this year let’s intentionally make Jesus the priority of Christmas.

Quote Refill.

Don’t impress others with what you have, impress them with who you are.

You’re not what happened to you in the past, you’re now, you’re this moment. What will you do with it? Who will you choose to become?

What has 90 balls and screws old ladies? Bingo

In a nudist colony where do men put their wallet? Just sayin’

I just realized men are like goldfish, they look at you when you’re talking but don’t listen to a damn word you’re saying.

It doesn’t matter how you look, what you weigh or how much makeup you put on. The right guy will love you for what’s in the inside

I was just thinking about how it drives me crazy just to feel your hand in mine and how simple that is.

I just can’t imagine life getting any better than this. I just knew no feeling could match my passion for you. A love couldn’t be any more right than ours. I adore you above the heaven and the stars. I will never be the same.

Relationships: it’s more than just the dates, holding hands and kissing. It’s about accepting each other’s flaws, about being yourself and finding happiness together.

Not caring what other people think is the best choice you will ever make.

Your opinions are like periods, I didn’t ask for them

Being true to yourself is the smartest thing you can ever do. Don’t let the words of others lead you down a road of confusion.
