1 Corinthians 3:8 says ” Now he who plants and he who waters are the same, but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.” There are times in life when we are asked to plant or water a seed, for ourselves or someone else. The reward will be given according to the effort we put in. Therefore, when you work hard for yourself or for someone else, you will be rewarded either way. So every chance you get to help someone, do it. Every time you can do something for yourself, do it. Do it with love, dedication, and with gratitude. God will provide the increase. It may not happen immediately, so be patient, but have faith that growth will happen.
Is there something or someone causing you to think twice before you move forward? We all know what it means to look like “a deer in the headlights.” Scared to death. Fear will paralyze you and will stop you from accomplishing your deepest desire.
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Mathew 17:20
Yes, it might be difficult. To some maybe even impossible. But to you, who has strong faith, the impossible will become possible. Let faith bring forth the desires of your heart. Affirm yourself that by faith you can move mountains.
Every day is a new experience. Back in 2013, I had a wonderful opportunity to visit South Africa with a company I was working with at that time. The experience was phenomenal. It was also something I never even imaged or expected would happen in my life. Although that was a great moment in my life, I also had some crazy thing happening as well. What I realized from this experience is that life is not constant.
The worst thing a person can do is believe that everything is supposed to be “perfect”.
There will be days of joy and happiness. As well as days of pain and sorrow. The worst thing a person can do is believe that everything is supposed to be “perfect”. Don’t chase life with a one-sided mindset. Being too happy or too sad will hurt you in the end. Life is about finding balance. Appreciating when things are good, and allowing yourself to feel, maybe even cry when things are not. Live in balance. Find gratitude. That’s where love resides. Remember that tomorrow you will get a fresh start.
