10/31/19 Having low expectations is living life at our own level of disappointments. High expectations can lead to resentments. Our happiness depends on a balance of expectations, more compassion, and an acceptance of life as it flows.
10/30/19 The wilderness may be dark but God leads us out into the light. We may try to go around but in order to learn, we must go through our challenges. The mountain top of success comes after the valley of failure.
10/29/19 Spiritual depression is an invisible prison. We may smile on the outside but sadness may lurk within our spirit. Stay grateful, faithful, and prayerful as this too shall soon pass.
10/28/19 Self control deepens discipline; the difference between want and need. Ask for God's help, praying for wisdom. The Spirit of God gives us power, love, and self-discipline.
10/27/19 Whatever we resist, persists. Without the resistance of water a ship cannot float, or resistance of gravity we could not walk. Courage is not the absence of fear but the resistance and mastery of it.
10/26/19 Intolerance of a problem is the birthplace of a brighter future. The difficulty is an opportunity to learn and reach a higher level of awareness. Opportunities can be brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
10/25/19 Don't stay where defeat is accepted. When we mess up, pick up, and don't give up. Find a new path around the ditch that defeats our ultimate purpose.
God works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
10/24/19 If we believe wrong, we will live wrong. Love is the answer to curing many of life's difficult tests. A relationship with God doesn't guaranteed our life will be great, but it means we live content in faith, "knowing" who is really in control.
10/23/19 Do we live with gratitude and diligence every day? Do we appreciate all that God has given us? Develop the gifts that have been given by God; using them in worthy service to others.
Rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
10/22/19 Faithful expectations are contagious. We surround ourselves with people of similar expectations in order to live sincerely, securely, and supported. Like minded people expect the best for each other.
