christian living (1221)

We may need moments to feel happy, but to always experience the joy of the Lord, we need faith in all of God's promises:. When you look through the scriptures, we are often told to rejoice, always be full of joy in the Lord, or be of good cheer. You will notice that these statements do not come as a recommendation, but rather as an instruction. This shows us that joy is something we must practice as believers.

 

Therefore, whatever the surrounding circumstances or situations, your disposition sh

Alkaline Food VS Acidic Food

Food can be classified into two groups namely the acidic food  group and the alkaline food group. These foods are categorized as  such because they affect the urine pH level when they are  consumed. Our body's acid-alkaline balance, also known as pH, can affect our overall well-being.

Something a great deal of people don’t take enough responsibility for is their moods. We often assume that when we are feeling negatively or unpleasant, the reason for that is irreversible. We become a slave to the ups and downs of everyday life, and only feel good when events beyond our control come to lift us out of the negative funks that we all too often might find ourselves in. 

But living that way is not going to help you to stay motivated and meet your needs, especially if you have a spec

We pat ourselves on the back because, in truth, we have done an amazing job.

Usually, our biggest obstacle to our motivation lies within ourselves. But there are times when we are simply surrounded by negative and toxic people who can make us feel as if we will never be able to accomplish the things we want to. When this is the case, we are in some pretty hot water when it comes to lifting our spirits enough to make an effort. This can be drive-killing and can cost us the realization of our dreams.

As much as rejection is a very frequent occurrence in life, we are quick to feel bad about it. Each time it happens to us almost forgetting that God can still work out good from any situation. I like to think of rejection as an opportunity to get access to something even better. Yes, it hurts it may look like we gave something all we had and still got rejected. However, if there's better which there always is, then the rejection keeps us open to receiving that better opportunity.

The biggest enemy of motivation are our own bad habits. When we are so programmed to do something that isn’t good for us that we do it without even thinking about it, chances are high that we are already more invested in our own failure than we are in our success. If we don’t commit ourselves to our success every single day and constantly reinforce ourselves by reminding ourselves to make good choices, then motivation can and will slip right through our fingers.

Reflection

 

Sometimes Jesus taught with parables and stories which the hearer needed to interpret. This teaching through stories often confounded those who listened out of selfish curiosity or sinister motives. They couldn’t understand why he was talking about things like lost coins, scattered seeds, and houses being blown down in a storm.

 

Yet at other times, Jesus’ teaching was crystal clear and couldn’t possibly be misinterpreted. When a lawyer attempted to trick him by asking what the grea

Life will knock you down and laugh at you. Life will hit you when you're trying to live for Jesus. Life is no respecter of persons. But that's when you say, "you know what, I'm getting up, I'm not going to quit. I'm not. I may get knocked down nine times, but I'm going to get up 10 times. I'm not going to quit." In the words of the great theologian Rocky Balboa, - and I quote, "it's not how hard you can hit that makes you a winner, but it's how hard you can get hit and get up and keep going".
