Did Money Break Our Happiness?

Did Money Break Our Happiness?

How much money will it take to make you happy? How much is happiness worth? If you didn’t have to worry about the cost, how much are you willing to pay for true happiness?


Atonement: a Hard Pill to Swallow!

How can I make-up for all the wrong I’ve done?

Maybe, if I start today, and never make those same, stupid mistakes again…

Maybe if I apologize, but will they believe me? Just saying “I’m sorry,” is not enough!

Maybe if I cry, they’ll believe I’m sorry.

Two weeks later, I messed-up again.

Atoning for past sins is really quite impossible. I can never do the right thing consistently. Part of me wants to give up. The other part wants to just hide. Then, there’s the seriously guilty part of me, that may as well die!

Guilt is a killer!

How can I ever atone? It’s a hard thing to live with: a hard pill to swallow!

Let’s be truthful.

I can’t. I can’t be right, or good, or perfect. There’s no way. Every time I try to do good, evil is always there, staring at me! Every time I try to say the right thing, it comes out wrong.

All I can say…. is…

…thank God for this One Truth:

A man on the street-corner told me a story about the torture of an innocent Man, thousands of years ago, Who prayed for His torturers, while they were torturing Him, Whose death actually paid for my wrongs!

“How is that possible”, I asked, “when I had not been born yet?”

The stranger explained that This Man’s death atoned for, not only my wrongs, but for the sins of everyone born before …And after His death!

Miracle of miracles, and an amazing gift of Grace!

The mystery of the Love of Jesus, makes it possible to release me from the penalties that I deserve for all the mistakes and wrongs I have ever done!

“Whaaat??!” I exclaimed.

Truth is: If I had not stopped to talk to this stranger on the street-corner, I might have gone on through life, condemning myself forever…miserable, angry, blaming others … or circumstances, for my misery.

So glad I stopped and listened.

Now, I have come to know…

When I mess up, all I have to do, is repent: acknowledge my sin, tell Jesus and anyone else that I’ve offended, that I am sincerely sorry, make an attempt to change the error of my ways…and immediately….

The bright light of Jesus’ love covers me, hides my sin and my shame, washes it away, and suddenly, I’m on the path to newness…a fresh start!

… And, trust me, I’ve started over many, many, many times!

But Jesus doesn’t condemn me…Instead… He keeps forgiving me, giving me another chance. Nobody loves me like that!

Atonement? Aaaahhh!

It’s In the old rugged Cross of Calvary!

Got a Dream? Here’s How to Make it Happen!

“Anything we build can be destroyed by forces beyond our control. But what we have built has a better chance of survival if we start with a strong foundation.

foundationThese are the words of an average small-business owner from Canada, named Scott. He started with nothing, and built something great.

 

Anyone with a vision knows that some kind of investment is necessary to see the vision become a tangible thing. But your investment of money, emotions, work or effort has to be a passionate “donation” to the dream.

That goes without saying. 

You’ll need care.

You’ll need to bring something “to the table”.

You’ll need drive and determination.

You’ll need a spiritual connection to a Higher Power than you!

Anything worth having is worth investing passion.

Write it down!

  1. Write down your dream or vision. Be specific about what you want!
  2. Now, you’ll need to see it! So, find a picture or likeness of what you desire, and place it in a prominent place that you’ll see every morning.
  3. Keep a journal of your progress, and do something everyday to draw closer to your goal.
  4. Be grateful for every little step forward, believing in positive outcomes.

But there is something else you need, that conventional thinking does not take into account;

…but those who are successful life, earning enough money to sustain themselves, living stress-free happy lives… have this one thing in abundance.

 

A spiritual connection. You cannot, and will not succeed without it! You might have the money, the house, the car, the parties…but that lonely emptiness will be hanging on, true happiness, joy & peace will evade your dreams…

An emptiness fills my gut. Where’s the joy?

Remember Scott? He mentioned the need for a strong foundation. Here’s something else to consider if you’re looking to start any kind of venture or pursue any kind of dream: 

Think about 3 things:

  1. If I weren’t building my dream, what would I be doing with my time?
  2. If it takes years to start seeing the results of my hard work, would this all be worth it?
  3. Am I enjoying the way I’m spending my time working toward my dream, or is it a “chore?”

Needless to say, the “Successful” must have a certain mind-set, and a clear focus.

Self Portrait at Reesor Lake (July 13, 2013)This person has to be persistent, with a stubborn-sort of character, rejoicing in the small accomplishments that come every day.

This is a special mind-set, that comes out of Self-Development. And as You develop, you will add value to others’ lives, gaining the trust and respect of 

  • Local and online friends & family, (connecting online with Social Media & forums) and
  • Local and online communities.

 

You only need to have a dream, envision your dream, engage a system, follow the plan, put forth the effort and be consistent….

…And connect with God today, (now is a good time!)

…in a true and spiritual way:

Therein lies your inner power to achieve anything!

What Difference Does It Make What You Think?

I need to make decisions independent of what others think. Right? marriage-rocks_2523272b

What difference does it make what “they” think? What difference does it make what “they” say about me?

 

So, I’ll decide for myself.  Now…question is: How do I decide?

How will my decision make me feel?

What’s that glaring look in your eye when  you look at me?

 

But…I just can’t live alone. So, I guess it does matter.

 

There is so much hate, and sorrow, and natural disasters that wipe out entire towns…babies dying, hungry children, distraught mothers, persecuted fathers, neglected animals…the list of horrible things in our world is long and ugly.

But when you think about it, all of these horrible things have an “origin” somewhere in the human experience…It’s called cause & effect.

 

The thoughts in my mind began in my heart. My heart is broken. Am I angry? Just sad, not angry? No, I Am angry. But my heart can somehow, still hold compassion, understanding, a feeling for you…a feeling that I still care what happens to you. That’s the difference.

Dig deep.
