Eternal Things

Money can buy material things.
Money can buy distractions (disguised as happiness).

Money cannot buy passion.
Money cannot buy purpose.

I think you’ll find that your passion and purpose are connected to people.
Why? Because people are the only eternal things on this earth.

Use your wealth to amplify and don’t allow it to interfere.

There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

Proverbs 13:7 KJV

Good Word

We all have a “good word” for someone today.

Prepare to share.
1. Have an excellent morning routine. Set your trajectory before you fire the engines.
2. Plan your day. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
3. If you find yourself in a funk, change your state. Physical movement like bouncing, screaming, forced laughter and walking will oxygenate your brain and release hormones that can get you back on track.

The person who is ready to share a good word is also the person who is capable of receiving one.

Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.

Proverbs 12:25 KJV

Empathy

Based on…
My family.
My childhood.
My education.
My experience.
My expertise.

Don’t limit yourself based on your frame of reference.
Empathy will open the door of understanding.

And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.

Job 11:6 KJV

Choice Words

It takes work and discipline to keep emotions from operating your mouth.
Choose your words wisely. 
The effort is worth it.

The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

Proverbs 10:11 KJV

Trouble

Even if you are not looking for it, sometimes trouble just shows up.
Sometimes it’s trouble from a bully.
Sometimes it’s trouble from an unwanted diagnosis.
Sometimes it’s trouble from mother nature.

Trouble can come from almost any angle at any time.
Question is what are you gonna do when it arrives?

Remember, God always has a plan.
When trouble comes, He expects us to stand.

I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.

Job 3:26 KJV

A Good Day

How long has it been since you had a good day?

My definition of a good day.
1. Do some meaningful work.
2. Have a deep conversation.
3. Emotionally experience gratitude.
4. Laugh myself to tears.
5. Share genuine love.

I believe good days aren’t had, they’re made.

And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day.

Esther 8:17a KJV

Anger

Did you know anger can be a good thing?
Anger can stimulate action.
Anger can propel you toward your purpose, goals and vision.

However, anger left unsettled or unfocused can derail your life.

From time to time you will be angry.
Use anger, don’t let it use you.

So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.

Esther 7:10 KJV

Resilient

Resilient or reckless?
There is a fine line between the two, and that line is the reason.

Resiliency for pride is foolish.
Resiliency for cause is noble.

– and if I perish, I perish.

Esther 4:16b KJV

Delegate

Certain things are yours and yours alone, others are not. Can you tell the difference?

Spend most of your precious time doing the things that only you can do. Leverage other people and delegate tasks that can be delegated as the need arises. Always keep in mind that ultimately you own the outcome. 

You can delegate tasks but you cannot delegate your responsibilities.

Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.

Proverbs 5:17 KJV

Thankful

I am thankful for the country I get to live in.
I am thankful for the people I get to work with.
I am thankful for my family who love and support me.
I am thankful for my children who bless me daily.
I am thankful for the Spirit that corrects and convicts me.
I am thankful for the God who loves me.
I am thankful for the Man who died for me.
I am thankful for Christ who paid my debt.
I am thankful for the Son who conquered death.
I am thankful to Jesus for the gift of eternal life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 KJV
