I love to learn, give me a self help book and I'm gobbling it up. I look at the world through lenses that have this amazing way of allowing me to see beauty in the smallest of situations. My favorite self-help book is the Bible. It's full of amazing truth and it's the one thing that if applied to your life, will become alive and will without a doubt forever change you. It's one of those action books, though, one that doesn't end, you know the kind where when you get done reading it, you could start again and take a whole new adventure.
I love change, many people fear it, dread it, and fight it. Not me...I wait for it. Give me people like Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey, John Maxwell, Zig Ziglar, Dave Ramsey, etc, and I can listen for hours. It's no wonder when I came to Christ, I couldn't get enough of people like Beth Moore, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Greg Laurie, Ravi Zacharias, Pastor Dwight Fearing, Pastor Kirk Snaza and of course Jesus. There is just something about changing yourself to make the world a little better that gives a person a sense of purpose.
The one thing I don't have yet, is that ability to see myself like Christ sees me. I see others like that, but looking at myself, I'm not there yet. My blogs don't make me anyone special, I do it to connect with Christ and I share it because of you, to make contact, to connect, to share and to Inspire. All the great leaders will tell you, when you learn something worthwhile, immediately share it with others within 24 hours. It's called a testimony. God's love is always twofold, He always has someone else in mind as well when you are blessed. PAY IT FORWARD. If you don't, the blessing dies. Is that the hill you want to end your journey on? I think not, climbing the next and reaching the top of that next one sounds like a much better accomplishment. One thing I think I could definitely market myself on is the power of POSITIVE THINKING. After much struggle in the darkness, I have that! You cannot go around thinking that you're not good enough. If you do, that is where your gifts, abilities, and hope will end. You are good enough, and there are nearly 7 billion people on this earth that need to hear it. Alone, I will never reach them, but collectively as a team we will.
I mentioned Charisma. My significance with this word is when I hear it, I think of several things, one of them though, if I had to be bold and gutsy and put myself out there, I'd say does reflect me. Why God chose that word yesterday as one I can look through His lenses and see myself, I don't know, but I did. I'm thankful for those positive words, and what they do to you when you believe them. The world will immediately try to "knock you off your high horse" as they like to call it, because misery loves company. Remember that. Because if you plan for it, you can prepare for it.
Don't give up on yourself. God hasn't, He has a lot of Positive words and Charisma to fill your life with. You need it, and you need to believe them. That's why I'm here, for those of you that need to know that you will succeed. Freely received, Freely given. At no cost. You need to know that God knows the plans HE HAS for you, and those plans are to PROSPER YOU, they are not to harm you, they are plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE!
