“F.R.O.G.” – Fully Rely On God!

Over the course of our lives, many of us have our share of ups and downs. Things go well and life is wonderful and then “BAM!!!” something hits you out of the blue. Maybe it’s something that physically goes wrong…or something that emotionally happens regarding a special relationship…or a financial misstep happens and you don’t know if you’ll ever see the light at the end of the tunnel. In these times, we should not stress out, worry or be fearful; but instead we should pray and we should “F.R.O.G.” = Fully Rely On God!

The Bible gives us various scriptures that we can turn to in times of need for support, guidance and direction. Below are a few that I personally love and that remind me to Fully Rely On God:

“Commit everything you do to the Lord, trust him and he will help you.” Psalm 37:5 (NLT)

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)

“For God did not give us the spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” II Timothy 1:7 (NIV)

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:5-7 (NLT)

I pray that this post and these verses give you strength, courage and peace of mind in your times of need as they have done for me!

Be Blessed and Live Victorious!

Labor or Love???

On today…Labor Day 2009, I’ve taken some time to reflect and ask the question…is it “Labor or Love???”

Confucius said “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” It’s also been said to “Do what you love and you’ll never take a vacation again.” What very powerful, yet thought provoking statements. How many people have “truly” found a job that they love…or consider what they do day in and day out to fall right in line with their passions?

Many people work in a job solely for the paycheck because their bills need to be paid; while some others work for the title and prestige that comes along with the job. Regardless of the reason, if you are not doing what you love (or at least putting processes in place to get there one day), what was your time/purpose on earth really used for? Some might say to get married and have children; or to build relationships and friendships with others…and I also think those purposes are true. However, there are people reading this today who have a relationship or a marriage, with children, and great friends and family…yet those relationships have been strained because they hate what they do 40+ hours a week. The frustration of that unhappiness can easily and subconsciously spill over into other areas of their lives.

Just imagine for a moment if both of those sayings at the beginning were true. What would your life look like? How happy would you be? I think that we were put on this earth to have overall happiness…not compartmentalized happiness. We should love our lives whether we are at home, at work or at play. Don’t we deserve it? Who made us believe that if work was great, then our home would probably suffer; or if our home life was wonderful, then work had to be sacrificed? We should have abundance in ALL areas of our lives. Anything less plants a seed of discontent in our hopes, dreams and aspirations.

I believe that we are here to live life’s experiences to the fullest. To love our family, to build great relationships, to step past our fears and our comfort zone (which is the enemy trying to hold us back from our dreams) and to move closer and closer to the wonderful life that is awaiting each and everyone one of us. It’s not too late! The choice is yours. What do you choose…Labor or Love???
