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! 

Be Anything, Do Anything!

I have said this and written about it many times—you can be anything and do anything! How? Because God is in you. He is woven into your DNA because God made you.

I know this sounds crazy. But the only person holding you back is you. You let that devil of doubt whisper in your ear that you can’t be anything but who you are now.

There’s a reason why I have found that the first Real Secret to Life is LISTEN for and to God. If you LISTEN to God you will start believing in yourself because God believes in you. And you will realize the untapped potential in your life to be anything, do anything.

I came upon this quote and I hope it helps gives you a little motivation and inspiration.

Your power to choose the direction of your life allows you to reinvent yourself, to change your future and to powerfully influence the rest of creation. It is the one gift that enables us to elevate our life to higher and higher levels. Steven R. Covey, The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

Less God, More Chaos

It’s pretty simple: The less God there is in this world the more chaos we see around us. As we push God out of our lives bad things happen. The world gets darker and we get lost. Wars, shootings, and downright hatred on the streets. That’s defining our world today because we choose to push God away. When you extinguish a light you are left with darkness. Simple.

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.

Don’t Think Prayer Works? You’re Not Praying.

Prayer works. It’s that simple. There is no magic to prayer. It’s just a conversation with God. He’s always there, listening and waiting to talk. You just have to be there, talking and listening. If you don’t think prayer works, you are just not giving it a chance. Period. Continue reading

Jesus says, “RELAX!” He’s Got This.

It can’t be any clearer—“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10). Those are Jesus words to us. So simple but so meaningful. He’s telling us to relax; He’s got this. Why we get so down, wander around looking for answers, and complicate life is beyond me.  Continue reading
