There are only 20 days remaining before the new year. Can you believe that in 21 days we will be in a new year and a new decade! Wow, it is amazing how time flies! Well, please consider taking the 4 L’s of life with you into the new year. Here they are:
Live – Live life abundantly. Living life abundantly does not necessarily equate to money or material possessions. Start with being grateful for what you do have, such as your peace, your health, as well as family and friends. Everyone does have these valuable gifts and money certainly can not buy them!
Learn – Continue to learn and re-learn. The word of God says do not conform to the patterns of this world but be transformed, by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).
Love – Love one another. One of my favorite scriptures is “Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another (Romans 13:8). Taking about “good debt” this is the only debt that I want to remain in!
Laughter – Laugh, Laugh, Laugh! Laughter is good for the body, as well as the soul and it relieves stressful situations.
Until next time, take care and be blessed!
We spend so much time wrapping our gifts for each other in just the right paper, ribbon, and bow. For what? So we can have a trash bag full of pretty colors on December 26? Well, I actually am guilty of doing this myself! It is something about the beauty all around us during the holiday season that makes me happy inside. I would like for you to consider the following gift suggestions. They will have an impact on others long after the holiday season.
Here they are:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
Merry Christmas to you and your family and may God bless you in the New Year!
From time to time everyone have disruptive moments in life (unexpected life events). When disruptive moments take a visit in your life, keep these 5 truths in mind.
- Disruptive moments are often divine appointments.
- Progress without pain is usually not possible.
- The promise of God is the provision of grace.
- Disruptive moments produce dynamic growth.
- What we receive from disruptive moments depends upon how we respond.
Remember that although it may not feel good when you are in the midst of a disruptive moment in your life , it is working for your good in the long run (Romans 8:28).
