Life – Quote of the Day [Mother Teresa]

By  |  0 Comments
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. 
Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it.Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it.     ~Mother Teresa~
Food for thought, something I try to live by daily and it pays off! 

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” 

If all your life you’ve been warned about making bad decisions, fear can cause you to miss God-given opportunities. “If the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?” Now you’re like the mule standing between two bales of hay; unable to decide which one to eat and afraid of making the wrong choice, you starve to death. You must act! Your need to do things perfectly and your desire to control every possible outcome will keep you stuck. So: 

(1) Stop trying to please everybody. “Fear of man is a dangerous trap, but to trust in God means safety” Once you know what brings you fulfillment, as long as it’s God’s will, chart your course accordingly and refuse to let the opinions of others stop you or color your view. 

(2) Remember, over time your goals can change. What’s needed today may not be right for you a year from now. So reassess your plans regularly and be willing to change direction. “We should make plans—counting on God to direct us” When your spiritual gut says no, pay attention. 

(3) When God is on your side, you’ll prevail. Somebody asked Abraham Lincoln if he was sure that God was on his side. He replied, “I haven’t thought much about it. I just want to know I’m on God’s side.” It’s normal to speculate about how you’d like things to turn out, but God alone controls the future. Just trust Him.

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”

Word For Today, something I read daily had to share!
