Something to aspire to for sure 

My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people:  those who work and those who take the credit.  He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there.  ~Indira Gandhi

  • QUICKLY DEAL WITH THE SIN YOU SEE IN YOUR LIFE – Jay Adams offers sage wisdom about not harboring sin in your heart. Sadly, I have seen the effects of what happens when I as a believer allow sin to creep in and claim and control portions of my life… particularly in my thoughts.
  • Reading Psalm 51 is always one of the first places I go when I need to confess sin– ESPECIALLY when I don’t feel like it, when I’d rather just maintain the status-quo. “Have mercy”… “wash me thoroughly”… “against You have I sinned”… “purge me”… “blot out”… “create”, “renew”, “restore”, “uphold”, “deliver”. I love Psalm 51’s honesty about sin and its target of renewal and restoration… as the living and active Word of God, when I read it and use it as a prayer to the LORD, it somehow works in me to bring about a right attitude even when I start out with a rebellious, self-focused desire to stay the same.
  • PRESCRIPTION FOR CONTENTMENT: “*Never allow yourself to complain about anything – not even the weather. *Never picture yourself in any other circumstances or someplace else. *Never compare your lot with another’s. *Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise. *Never dwell on tomorrow – remember that [tomorrow] is God’s, not ours.” Good advice. And it’s now up on my fridge, cause I need to read it again and again. 🙂
  • See post hereThis was a great post for me to read.  I am always seeking balance in my life and reading about contentment is a good piece to add to my teeter totter.

    This is a great reflection on the whys of suffering; that it is for naught.

    “As iron is fashioned by the fire on an anvil, so in the fire of suffering and under the weight of trials, our souls receive the form that our Lord desires for them to have.”

    — St. Madeleine Sophie Barat
