motivation (387)

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

The promise of God's presence is constant and never changing. The light of his presence shines on you daily. Even in that dark situation or circumstance that seems overwhelming. As Believers, we do not work by feeling or sight, but we move with the eyes of faith. The fact that the Bible reveals that the current Heaven and Earth will pass away one day should give you confidence that your present negative situation or circumstance can also be rolled away in the Winking of an eye, regardless of the

Sometimes we wonder why we don't get the things we want as soon as we want them. Unfortunately, we are in a generation that desires to see this happen instantly. We have fast food and transportation. We have minimized the time taken to do longer tasks. This generation considers time an asset and will always improve on having things done efficiently and effectively. We pat ourselves on the back because, in truth, we have done an amazing job.

 

Unfortunately, as we advance in technology, we decli

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.

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".

As you build your faith, you block out the spirit of fear. Fear and faith do not mix, they are complete opposites. So, if you'll take just one thing away from my message today, let it be this, God has not given you a spirit of fear, he has given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Deuteronomy 31:8 says

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

It is difficult to understand that pain has a purpose when you are the one suffering it. It is very easy to say it to someone else, but admitting it to yourself might be quite challenging. Despite this, the truth is that your pain has a purpose. The truth is, God is aware of the pain you are passing through. He is aware of the difficulties you are faced with and while he does not enjoy seeing you in pain, he is working out. Even the pain for your good, in fact, some of those circumstances only o

It's not always easy to stay motivated when you're trying to achieve a goal. Some experts say that the "goal" itself should be enough to inspire unwavering diligence toward achieving it...and there is an element of truth in that. However, the reality is that the discomforts of striving for a particular goal can sometimes cause us to lose focus.

In this journey of life, you need to learn to not force things because God has already made a plan for things to go a particular way.
When you have to travel the difficult roads of life, do you let go of the wheel, give it to God and let Him navigate the way as well or do you try to maintain control on your own? Giving all our trials and worries in life to God and trusting Him in those difficult times is often easier said than done! In fact, it is downright frightening at times.

Doing What You Love

What do you want to be when you grow up? I’m sure you were asked this question at least once when you were a youngster. When asked the question, did you have an answer at the ready, or did you need a few minutes to think about it? We all had dreams of becoming something great, like a fireman, a teacher, or a rock star, just to name a few. Well, how did you do? Maybe you never aspired to be what you set out to be or said that you would become. But then again, things change. The older we get, our

Action. Ideas. Motivation.

The Concept of A.I.M was born out of necessity while I was writing (well more to the point attempting to write) my book called Financial Dignity. The book took many years to research and develop but I was to realise just now much of the time was taken up doing nothing. Many months would go by without me even lifting a pen, tapping a key on the word processor, or turning a page. In between times I would feel highly motivated and would get stuck into the research and bang out a...

It's 6 in the morning. The alarm clock is buzzing, and you're thinking to yourself, "What's the point in getting up this early for work?" For some of us, the motivation is simply the desire to shut off the clock that is vibrating off the nightstand. But for others, it is truly self-motivation. It is an internal alarm clock that motivates a person to make the best of his or her day.
