My mind is an open reservoir waiting to collect information from any available source. I prefer to read during my downtime. Reading brings me many benefits.

 

My capabilities expand when I spend time reading. Following up on international news keeps me abreast of what is happening in the world. It allows me to be more conversant. It also puts me in a position to be a good global citizen.

 

Reading about history also expands my horizons because it teaches me humility. When I learn about the difficult experiences of those before us, I feel truly grateful for my blessings.

 

The struggles of my forefathers add to the pool of strength that I turn to whenever I am facing a challenge. Knowing of the hardships experienced by those before me strengthens my resolve to fight through my own.

 

Reading a good story teaches me how to relax and find peace.

 

Characters from novels are designed to reflect heroism and fortitude. Although their experiences are illusory, their stories reflect reality. They serve as motivation for me to make it through the toughest times.

 

Today, I open my mind to new ideas through reading. I am proud to be a scholar of some of life’s most decorated storytellers and characters. Their written words create experiences that encourage me to live with strength and meaning.

 

Self-Reflection Questions:

 

  1. What do I do with some of the knowledge gained through reading?
  2. How do I convert the real-life experiences of others into true stories of motivation for me?
  3. In what other ways am I able to achieve knowledge?

“Don’t forget the emeralds that emanate esteem, earnest commitment, encouragement and endurance. Adorn your crown with amethysts of admiration, affection, affirmation, approval, appreciation and attentiveness.”

– NANCY CAMPBELL

Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

Genesis 2:18: “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Matthew Poole’s Commentary on Genesis 2:18: “The Lord God saidor, had saidto wit, upon the sixth day, on which the woman was made, Genesis 1:27-28Not goodnot convenient either for my purpose of the increase of mankind, or for man’s personal comfort, or for the propagation of his kind. Meet for hima most emphatical phrase, signifying thus much, one correspondent to himsuitable both to his nature and necessity, one altogether like to him in shape and constitution, disposition and affection; a second self; or one to be at hand and near to himto stand continually before him, familiarly to converse with him, to be always ready to succour, serve, and comfort him; or one whose eye, respect, and care, as well as desire, Genesis 3:16, should be to him, whose business it shall be to please and help him.”

***

What does it mean to have a teachable spirit? Let me answer this question by first saying that none of us like to be told what to do. We have our own agenda, our personal goals. We want to come and go as we please, wake up when we want and go to bed when we want. Eat what we want. Our sinful mentality is: Don’t tell me what to do; I jolly well know what to do. This mentality has caused no small stir in marriages. Yes, even in my marriage as I have not always displayed a teachable spirit. That unteachable spirit can do much damage in a marriage or in any relationship for that matter.

So, what does it mean to have a teachable spirit? It means having the mentality of, first of all, I do not know everything. It’s a mentality that says, ‘What do you want me to do for you, husband? Tell me! Tell me! Tell me!’ Picture the wife running behind her husband, hanging on to his coattail for life while the husband is sprinting ahead carrying out God’s vision, mission, and purpose for the family, and she is crying out, ‘Tell me, tell me, how can I help you! What do you want me to do, husband?’ She is crying out (silently or loudly) to be that help meet that God placed within her to be.

Ladies, let’s ask God to give us a teachable spirit as we strive to be the help meet He wants us to be.

J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are requesting separate federal civil rights trials from Derek Chauvin’s. (HENNEPIN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE VIA AP, FILE)
 
 

Three former Minneapolis police officers are asking to be tried separately from Derek Chauvin in federal court on charges of violating George Floyd’s civil rights.

Attorneys for J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao filed motions this week requesting that their trials be severed from Chauvin’s trial because his case could potentially prejudice jurors against their clients.

“The jury will have insurmountable difficulty distinguishing the alleged acts of each defendant from the alleged acts of his co-defendants,” wrote Thao’s attorneys, Robert and Natalie Paule.

Kueng’s attorney, Thomas Plunkett, also filed a motion requesting a separate trial from Chauvin. In a separate filed request, Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, asked to join both Thao’s and Kueng’s motions.

No date has been set for the trial. Co-defendants are typically tried in one trial in federal court.

The former officers were federally indicted in May for using the “color of the law” to deprive Floyd of his constitutional rights to be “free from the use of unreasonable force” when Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes last year. Kueng and Lane helped pin Floyd in the street as Thao held back angry bystanders.

In a separate state court trial, jurors convicted Chauvin on April 20 of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Kueng, Lane and Thao are scheduled to be tried in state court next year for aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter.

Motivating Others Takes Practice

If motivating others were easy, everyone would do it. You can’t just read about a few techniques and implement them, expecting major changes to happen. It takes practice like anything else worthwhile.

Motivating others requires them to be willing. If someone is hard-set in not doing something, there will be little you can do to change that. You may be able to force someone, i.e., if you are a manager, etc. However, that is not the same as motivating them. If you were to leave the company, they would revert to their previous behavior.

Realize that trying a technique only when the mood strikes is not going to produce results. You must be dedicated to trying them out and continue doing so until you see results. You also need to determine when something isn’t working after several tries and seek an alternative approach. Unfortunately, there is no magic number as to when to make that determination.

Motivating others is about aligning their goals with yours. This alignment could require some compromises in the process. For instance, if you are trying to get one of your workers to do something, you need to listen to them if they legitimately say they have too much other work. You can offer to have someone else on your team take up some of the extra work, or you could even do it yourself under certain circumstances.

You can’t approach motivation as entirely academic. In other words, if you read about something and try to implement it, you think it should work. If it doesn’t, you may blame the people you are trying to motivate and believe there is something wrong with them. However, some people may be going through stressful situations and so are not able to focus on their jobs or even their personal life. You need to have compassion for them and factor in human emotions that may be at play.

If motivating others isn’t working, you should try to find out why. It may be something you are doing that needs change. For instance, are you practicing what you preach? If you are telling everyone that they must work on weekends but are unwilling to work yourself, then you will experience resistance from your team. You will have much better results if you are on the front lines with your troops.

Motivation is more about communication than barking orders. It is about getting people to recognize the importance of the work or task at hand. You must allow them to take the initiative and own the problem and their solution.

Oftentimes stress will manifest when we carry over yesterday’s concerns into our present day concerns. An accumulation will almost always end up in a high stress level. Therefore, we must be able to “dump” all of our concerns from the previous day or days and concentrate wholly on our today.

 

So here are 3 stress busting tips 

 

- Stress Busting Tip #1 

 

Resolve right now to release every thought from yesterday and be only mindful of the now…. this thought only...this breath...this moment. Take in three very deep breaths and slowly release each one.

 

At the same time feel each and every concern, each and every problem, and each and every unresolved moment, begin to dissolve. You can deal with them at a later time. For now, you are only to be in this very moment.

 

Now go to your inner quiet place. Go deep inside to a place where you feel that you are at peace and then just relax and breathe in deeply and enjoy the feeling of being at one and at peace within yourself.

 

Use this special time and place to be calm. Free your mind and body of all worry, all regret, all disappointment, all anger and grief.

 

- Stress Busting Tip #2 

 

Next, think of one particular act, such as rocking your baby, taking a quick stroll, raking the leaves, and do that one simple thing. All the while, your mind is quiet and calm and you are in your own special place within.

 

Practice this act of quiet and calm each day and you will see that you will accomplish so much more. At the first sign of being stressed, go back to this mindful, quiet place and start all over again until you have reached your inner place of calm.

 

- Stress Busting Tip #3 

 

The very best thing that you can do for yourself is to eat, drink and rest – to your health!

 

Stress is easily brought on by not eating and drinking properly. When you don’t get the number of hours of sleep that you need each night, you are only setting yourself up for additional stress.

 

Limit the amount of salt, sugar, caffeine and alcohol in your diet. Drink plenty of clean, pure water each day and do at least moderate exercise each day. This will breathe new life into your skin, hair and will nourish all of your vital organs.

 

Take time to breathe properly! Take deep belly breathes to send pure oxygen to all of your body. Laugh and then laugh some more. It is food for the soul! Spend time doing the things that please you most. Engage in healthy and fulfilling relationships and work on problems that would erode the closeness that you have with someone special.

 

When we are content and living a balanced life everyday stresses seem to pale in comparison. We are better equipped to deal with the unexpected.

 

You can take control today! Isolate only one particular stressor in your life and then work on it until you regain control. At the very least, have some new hope!

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, but when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. - James 1:12

 

 Some people say life is hard. I think it's better to say that life can be hard or better still, life is made up of difficulties and challenges. In the words of C.S. lewis hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

 

Now the biggest problem people have is that they hope for a life without problems, and this, my dear friend, is an impossible goal and would lead to a boring life without character. We will all have problems small or large. Now the difference is how we deal with the problems and the challenges that occur. Now, God fits the trial to the person in the sense that god makes everybody's difficult situation to be unique to them, because our destinies and our journeys are peculiar and different. Now, god does this so that what happens to me cannot be compared to what happens to you.

 

Our struggles are not the same, because we have a wise, heavenly father who fits the trial to the person now. One thing that causes us to despair when we are going through trials and tribulations is misconceptions: spiritual misconceptions that we have about challenges and difficult phases of life, they're misconceptions and they cause us to ask the question lord. Why are you doing this to me now? What are some of these misconceptions? There are many, but let's look at some of them.

 

The first is this: if you're a child of God, you will never go through difficult situations, so, in other words, if you're spiritual, you'll never get into a fizzy you'll, never shed a tear. You'll never buckle under pressure. Listen they're trying to tell you that in life you will always have success now I want to blow this out of the water, because this is absolute nonsense. Yeah. This is absolute nonsense.

 

Okay for the greatest men in the bible, they were the men that at times were in great challenging situations. They were in great distress, they were in great tribulation and some of them were a great depression. So when hard times come, it's easy to blame god for our problems. However, the truth is that the hard times are there to make us grow. I hope you don't think that, because you're going through trouble that in some way, god is punishing you, it is possible that that is not the case now.

 

Did you realize that God wants you to grow up? God wants you to fit the next level and the way through which he wants you to achieve. That is by putting you through difficult situations. Now, when we face challenges in life, it can either paralyze us with fear or cause us to seek God and to see him work in our lives, and the challenge is about building you. If you're never challenged, you will never change, and this is because you will never grow and growth.

 

My dear friend brings about change. When God challenges you it's mainly to grow you. Sometimes it takes a crisis for you to see your capability. King David was arguably one of the greatest men of God to ever walk on this earth, but what we can easily forget is how many challenges King david, faced before coming king and during his reign as king, remember, Saul, the king prior to david envied david, and He tried to kill him numerous times. Now, 1 Samuel 19 verses 10 to 11. It tells us Saul tried to pin him to the wall with a spear, but David eluded him an assault drove the spear through the wall.

 

That night, David made good his escape. Saul, sent men to David's house to watch it and to kill him in the morning, but micah, David's, wife warned him if you don't run for your dear life tonight, tomorrow you'll be killed. However, in whatever way or time, your difficult season or situation may occur, accepting the challenge and facing it head-on allows you to grow and to find strength that you never knew before. Another misconception that people have is that life should always be a bed of roses. Now it's nice when it's a bed of roses, if it ever, is for you, but it's not always a bed of roses, so take up your cross and follow christ. I mean that analogy does not fit with a bed of roses does it?

 

Following Jesus does not mean that your life will be free from challenges and problems; rather, it means that you have the Lord almighty with you in your challenges. You have the Lord almighty, who you can lean on trust and ask for help and who will provide for you and comfort you during it all now, even the people in the world, that's what they expect out of life. They expect a bed of roses because they have believed the hollywood fairy tale that everything ought to be money. Success, career education, talent, comfort, good looks, but in reality life is not like that.

 

So then we come to this question. Is there a plan? Is there a purpose in suffering? Listen, you wouldn't be human. If you did not ask why there is usually not always a specific answer to that question, i cannot give you a specific answer, but what i can do from the word of god today is to give you a general answer, and this general answer is that all Things work together for your good.

 

Sometimes we do not know whom we have in us until we have to go through something that is bigger than us. Challenges are growth opportunities and, if you let them they'll push you towards your purpose, they teach you how strong you are and where there is room for growth. A challenging life is just an opportunity to uncover and discover yourself so find your strengths in these moments, so that you may use them to find your true purpose. Challenges and problems are important parts of life and they give you experiences. They make you learn and they help you become wiser and stronger.

 

Now, problems make us grow and they shape us. So when you face challenges in your life, you have the same opportunity presented to you that king david had is either you let the challenges paralyze you with fear and dread, or you can seek God lean on him, for dependence, ask for his help and wisdom and work towards an outcome. If you choose the latter, it will lead to personal growth and, seeing the Lord work in your life now remember, your capacity will never increase in your comfort zone, so do not run away from the problems and challenges that you're facing in life do not ignore them or try to hide from them face them deal with them. The greatest growth in life and the most important lessons you will ever learn will come when you face and deal with a serious challenge.

 

So I pray that your challenges will not overwhelm you or that you will see them as an opportunity to see god working in your life. So, no matter what the provision or the breakthrough looks like on this side of eternity, you will grow closer with him through it all and you will come out better than you went in. Thank you for listening and god bless you.

Simone Biles, of the United States, waits to perform on the vault during the artistic gymnastics women’s final at the 2020 Summer Olympics, Tuesday, July 27, 2021, in Tokyo. (Gregory Bull/AP)

American gymnast Simone Biles has pulled out of the individual competitions in vault and uneven bars, according to USA Gymnastics.

Biles was a heavy favorite in the vault event final coming into the Olympics.

“Today, after further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars,” USA Gymnastics said in a statement. “She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam. MyKayla Skinner, who had the fourth highest score in vault during qualifications, will compete in vault finals for the U.S. alongside Jade Carey, who finished with the second highest score.”

The American, who won the gold medal in the vault in Rio 2016, pulled out of the team all-around competition on Tuesday after she said she got lost in the air during a vault on the opening rotation. USA Gymnastics later said in a statement that she would withdraw to focus on her mental health.

USA Gymnastics reiterated its support for Biles on Friday night.

“We remain in awe of Simone, who continues to handle this situation with courage and grace, and all of the athletes who have stepped up during these unexpected circumstances,” the organization said.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist and 19-time world championships gold medalist pulled out of the individual all-around competition on Thursday.

There are many Scriptures that teach believers to fear God, but not man. This includes all areas of our earthly existence: illness, relationship problems, financial troubles, emotional issues and every kind of pain and, perhaps most of all, death.


Fears of illness, death, and so many other sorts of disaster have never been as accentuated as they are today and this is a highly unfortunate condition, because when we abide in the fear of man, it makes us weaker and greatly increases the likelihood of our losing our way:


"The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe." (Proverbs 29:25)


But when we abide in the fear of the Lord, we are wise, safe and blessed and see His Goodness in our lives:


"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)


"The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant." (Psalm 25:14)


"Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of the sons of men!" (Psalm 31:19)


"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever." (Psalm 111:10)


When we fear man, we are inhibited, misled, confused, on a potentially dangerous path, and may end up discarded and feeling alone, but when we trust in the Lord for our protection and provision and ALL ELSE, we can avoid the pitfalls brought on by the fear of man:


"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me." (Psalm 23:4)


Moreover, not only does the Bible teach us that we do not have to fear death, it even tells us that for those in Christ, to die is gain:


"according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:20-21)


Further to this end, this verse in Proverbs reveals that the fear of the Lord keeps us from death, that is permanant death:


"The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
To turn one away from the snares of death." (Proverbs 14:27)

"The fear of the Lord leads to life,
And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;
He will not be visited with evil." (Proverbs 19:23)


Other Scriptures on this subject:


Psalm 112:1Psalm 115:13Deuteronomy 6:24Proverbs 1:7Proverbs 9:10, , Proverbs 3:7Proverbs 15:162Samuel 23:3Luke 1:50Luke 12:4Job 28:28Hebrews 2:15Philippians 2:12-13 & Acts 18:10


"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38-39)

“Oh don’t forget the rubies, the rarest of all gems. Is your crown radiating with rubies of reverence and respect for your husband? Is your crown ornamented with opals of openness, obedience, overflowing love and the oil of joy?”

– NANCY CAMPBELL

Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible on Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband,…. One that is loving and chaste, constant and faithful, obsequious and submissive to him; that is diligent in the affairs of her house, takes care of her family, brings up her children, and keeps up a good order and decorum among her servants, is an honour and credit to her husband.”

The Lord has blessed our family with five daughters and our middle daughter loves fixing her hair in different styles. She would go online and look up different hairstyles. Anyway, one of her favorite hairstyles is the crown. She showed it to me one day and after a couple tries we had it down pat. She wears her crown with pride.

A husband should be able to wear (to show off) his crown (his wife) with pride. His crown is a virtuous wife. But sadly, that is oftentimes not the case. He should be able to and should want to show off his wife; that is, take her out to dinner, take her places with him, have her represent him in his absence, talk highly of her, and he does these things eagerly.

A crown is very precious and usually has a high price placed upon it. It is oftentimes studded with diamonds and other precious jewels. The owner of the crown keeps it shiny and looking new by polishing it daily. Likewise, a husband who cherishes his crown (his wife) will keep her looking shiny and decorated by taking care of her. He will see that she gets the rest she needs, that she eats healthy, that she wears beautiful clothes; he will help her with the children; he will instill within her the Word of God as he wants her to become more like Christ. Yes, the husband who has a virtuous wife will honor and cherish her as he would a crown. Don’t you want to be that kind of wife? I know I do.

Let’s strive to be our husband’s crown by living virtuously.

The next release from GodChaserz Entertainment will be a joint project called Medallions from Brinson and ReadyWriter. The decision to pair the emcees together for a full album is one that came after deep consideration by the label’s CEO (Brinson) and is supported by plenty of Biblical wisdom.

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor” – Ecclesiastes 4:9

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” – Proverbs 27:17

It’s also just flat-out fun.

“We’re trying to continue our scene’s rich tradition of talented twosomes, from Ras and Nuwine to Corey Red and Precise to Lecrae and Andy Mineo,” Brinson said.

On Medallions, listeners will note a sustained focus on sharing the gospel via heightened wordplay and lyricism that recalls hip hop’s “Golden Era.”

“One of the few regrets I’ve had as the head of GodChaerz is that more people didn’t gravitate toward Ready’s skill an emcee,” Brinson said. “I’d put his pen game up against any of the greats. And hopefully this project will help others appreciate his musical gifts as much as I do.”

Another goal of the album is to offer timeless black music for Christians in the 30 and up age bracket.

“Unfortunately, there’s still a misconception that hip hop is exclusively the domain of the young,” ReadyWriter said. “While they certainly contribute to it in great ways, there are also plenty of folks who have grown up with this culture and still want to participate in it. Medallions will definitely scratch that itch,” he promised.

Medallions will be available on digital music platforms Weds, June 28th Physical copies and other merch can be secured at GodChaserz.com.

The post GodChaserz set to drop Medallions – a lyrically focused joint project from Brinson and ReadyWriter appeared first on Holy Culture.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel less than great. Low, grouchy, fed-up, and bored are all words you could use to describe what I’m like on those days and I’m probably not the best company. The thing is, days like those are part of the deal with being human – it’s not an elective. There will always be off days, and that’s okay.

 

But what happens when you get a whole string of those off-days, maybe lasting weeks, months or even years? Too many of us say that we’re in a rut, feel stuck, fed-up, or bored and admit that we don’t want things to be that way, but we don’t know what to do to change. That’s the problem, when you’re in a rut, you don’t have the energy or motivation to change things for the better, and it’s tough to find the insight or resources you need to make that jump.

 

Here are tw0 fun and easy ways you can use right now to climb, or better yet, leap, out of the rut and start to get something better for yourself.

 

  1. Do Something Differently

Life tends to run smoothly when we establish systems and routines for things, but the problem comes when things run too smoothly and we become blinded to any ideas or choices that sit outside of our routine. All the stuff we do every day becomes the norm, running on auto-pilot, and it becomes our whole world.

 

Start with making one or two simple changes to your day - be it at breakfast time, your radio station, gym routine, route to work, lunch routine, etc. Don’t worry about what the changes are or whether they’re right or wrong, just make a couple of simple choices that will serve you well.

 

Doing something differently or changing parts of your routine, instantly takes you out of the norm and allows you to shake off the things that make you feel confined. Step out of your routine and you’ll be in a position where you’re able to make different choices, see things differently and get a different result.



  1. Use your Intuition

 

Your intuition is a powerful ally, and we all have it even though you might not recognize it. The dictionary says that intuition is:

 

1.a. The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the use of rational processes; immediate cognition.

 

1.b. Knowledge gained by the use of this faculty; a perceptive insight.

 

  1. A sense of something not evident or deducible; an impression.

 

One of the best friends you'll ever have in life is your intuition, and tuning into it and learning to trust it is something that can have some truly remarkable effects. Accessing your intuition is a bit like working and developing a muscle, but unfortunately it can be harder to locate than a bicep or quadricep, which tend to stay in the same place. Here are some quick tips for accessing and trusting it –

 

  • Practice maintaining an open-minded, playful, experimental, non-judgmental attitude. This is the most fertile ground to tap into your intuition.

 

  • Practice making wild guesses in your everyday life. Guess what a salesperson's name is, what a new person or place will look like or who's calling on the phone. Don't worry about getting it wrong, you're just working that muscle.

 

  • Try a few simple observation exercises in your daily life. Whether you're in a restaurant, on a train, in a bar, or out shopping, practice noticing non-verbal behavior in others. Look for shifts in posture, eye movements, vocal tone or tempo, etc. Guess how they're feeling or what they're talking about.
