Listen, Read, Love, Fight, Believe, Live & Pray

These are the 7 Secrets to Life I have found. Pretty simple. No, make that really simple.

LISTEN to/for God because He is always there calling you. Yes, you. God has a unique, special purpose for you.

READ the Bible because it is our God-given handbook on life. It’s not some old book. It’s a timely book containing answers—if you want them.

LOVE because God commands us to love, and lead a life of love. That’s pretty simply.

FIGHT the devil because it is around every corner whispering doubt about everything—starting with God—in our ears.

BELIEVE that God is in you because He made you. You can do anything if you just believe and don’t doubt. Reread the last Secret to Life if you doubt any of this.

LIVE this life like it’s only a tune-up for your life of eternity. Where you spend that eternity depends on how you live this life. Back to that love thing!

PRAY because it’s simply conversation with God. It works—if you give it a chance.

These 7 Secrets to Life work for me. They are simple and clear. You may find others but these work for me. I hope they work for you.

Have a GREAT week! 

Simple Life, Simple Secrets

Life should be so very simple. God means life to be simple. We are the ones who complicate it. Our lives start out as a clean closet that we keep piling junk into daily. Before long that empty closet is stuffed with junk and overflowing.

I have found 7 very simple secrets to a simple life: Continue reading

Our Dragons in Life

Read this and thought it was an interesting quote to ponder for the day…

Our dragons are our fears: our daily stalkers, our night sweats. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failing. Fear of starting something new and not finishing. Again. Or the real fear, the one that send shivers up our spines: the fear of succeeding and facing the changes that will bring. We may not be happy with the way we are living now, but at least it’s safely familiar.

Have a great day and ever better weekend!!!

Shout the Devil Out of Your Life

It’s that simple. Want to get rid of that temptation in your ear? Simply shout out the devil. Yes, move closer to God and the closer you get the farther the demons will be in your life. However, nothing is more effective that shouting out the devil from your life. Jesus cast the devil out. So, if it works for Jesus I say it works for me.

No one really likes to talk about the devil or demons. That talk is too spooky, better left to horror movies. Unfortunately, the devil is real and there are demons behind the scenes. That doesn’t mean you walk life afraid. It simply means you know the reality of life and how to handle it. Like life itself, God means everything to be so very simple. Give a shout, get rid of the devil. Move closer to God and the less influence the devil has in your life.

Have a great day!

 

Falling Back on the Secrets to Life

I try to look at my life each day but life tends to get in the way. Meaning, the chaos of my professional and personal “lives” tends to drown out the daily look back on where I have been and where I am heading in life. That’s part of the problem as I look back on 2015 and try to plot a course ahead for 2016. That’s why I find myself falling back on the Secrets to Life—and I mean the Real Secrets to Life.

The Little Red Devil in Your Ear

There is a devil whispering in your ear, including mine—including us all. The problem is that devil is real, not little, and not like some cute child dressed up for Halloween. If we listen to the devil we will hear him. If we give in to his temptation we will slide way off the straight path of life and end up in a dead end—or worse. That’s why we have to FIGHT the devil every day. And as I have written many times, the way we FIGHT is to Continue reading

Don’t Let Anything Hold You Back in Life. NOTHING!!!

There is nothing—and I mean NOTHING!!!—that should hold you back in life. You have the ability to go farther, do more in life than you ever thought possible. There is a greater you in you than you ever can imagine. You just need to believe and overcome the doubt. And you do that by getting even closer to God. Continue reading
