Faith helps with choices

We have to make a bunch of choices every day. Some easy, like deciding to get out of bed early enough to get to work on time. Some we make difficult for ourselves, like women who cannot decide what to wear though their wardrobes are stuffed with clothes. Other choices are difficult for some people, […]

To choose God or not

In between the questions and few words, he grabbed at the pieces of faith that remained. With complete honesty he said in the article: “This is all part of the Lord’s plan and we have no bad feelings about what has happened. We trust 100% in the Lord and His plan for our family.” His […]

Choices

Each of us has to make hundreds of choices every day. Some important, some not so important. The first one is probably when the alarm goes off. Will I get up or will I hit the snooze button and stay in bed for a bit? Five minutes later I face that exact same choice. Staying […]

What do you feed?

There’s an old Native American story that goes like this: An old Cherokee was teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, […]

Learning a sweaty lesson

After writing the previous piece, I went to gym for my daily sweat session. For me, exercise doesn’t come naturally and it takes a whole lot of motivation just to get me there every time. But that is only half the motivation, because as I walk through the door it is hard not to simply […]

Live in full view

I have a mentor who really means a lot to me. I often face questions that I have no clue how to answer. Then I go to my mentor. Most times, he doesn’t give me a direct answer, but guides me to eventually get to my own answer. I have immense respect for him. But […]
