ideas for living intentionally

“Never confuse making a living with making a life.” (Roger Fields)

Philippians 3:13 TLB

I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: FORGETTING THE PAST and looking forward to what lies ahead,

Isaiah 40:31 TLB

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall MOUNT UP WITH WINGS LIKE EAGLES; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Top 3 Things I Am Going To Stop Doing

I am going to stop…

  1. Using sarcasm. Nobody likes a smarty pants.
  2. Regretting missed opportunities. We all miss opportunities.
  3. Being so hard on myself. We all make mistakes.

Why I Love America

  1. America was the only nation founded on an idea: freedom.
  2. America has the greatest mix of people groups in history.
  3. Americans are the most innovative people in history.
  4. America grew from wealth creation instead of conquering other nations.
  5. America’s founders (for the most part) understood their dependence on God.

My Plan For Growing Old

  1. Eat quality food with a few things I enjoy eating.
  2. Keep my body in motion. I love my man chair but it doesn’t keep me young.
  3. Never stop learning. Learning new things still excites me.

Jesus didn’t come to make bad people good but to make dead people alive. (Roger Fields)

7 Spiritual Secrets I Tell Myself

These work for me. You may find something here that will enhance your walk with God.

  1. Take It Easy. You will never grow in your walk with God by striving. Jesus said His yoke is easy (Matthew 11:30). If the yoke you are carrying is hard, it didn’t come from Him. Rest in what God has done for you (Hebrews 4:10-11).
  2. Read the Book Of Ephesians…

5 Questions to Ask Before You Give Up

So you want to give up. I hear you. I quit all the time…for a few minutes, and then get back in the game. Here are some things to consider before you throw in the towel.

  1. Am I physically worn out? Sometimes we let exhaustion effect our mental attitude. Eat something. Get some sleep. Make sure there is no physical component to the way you are feeling about your job or responsibilities.
  2. What will I do next?

  • Love is a big deal
