Achieving Your Potential Part 1

ACHIEVING YOUR

 POTENTIAL 

Here it is the first day of  2006 we never know what we are going to be faced with, but we can be assured God has a plan. As we look to the future may it be with hope wanting to become a better person, affecting everyone we are around with the love of the Lord. In order to begin to achieve ones potential we need to understand our Comfort Zone- That area which corresponds with your current self-image in any area of your life. Can we see the greater our self-esteem the broader our comfort zone becomes? This many times cause undue grief to all around us. Move out of your comfort zone and we experience tension, anxiety, breathing becomes difficult, muscles in our neck tighten, we secrete extra digestive juices causing ulcers. The result is decreased effectiveness and poor performance.

How are we going to keep within a positive comfort zone were we are proud of who we are? Look at how youíre talking to yourself to build good, positive self-esteem. Self talk is given to us by God for we are all created to communicate and make choices and the choices keep us in a good positive comfort zone. Romans 12:1-2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Merry Christmas

Happy New Year

We just came from a Christmas Eve Serviceís at our Church and had our oldest son, his wife and family here for supper. With potato pancakes, apple sauce, sausage and bacon which has become tradition.

Christmas has always been a special time for both Ginnyís and my lives. My mother would have all the Uncles and Aunties from both sides of our family. It was a time of laughter, eating, playing games and exchanging of gifts, Ginnyís family did the same.

The older we get the more we appreciate family, for as they get older the greater the blessings. We now have 10 grandkids, being taught the biblical pattern of living and to see their dedication to the Lord is the thrill of our lives.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

             Merry Christmas!

      

       MERRY CHRISTMAS!

         Merry Christmas!

Who ever thought Merry Christmas would be a word we could not use for greeting

one another. Many are trying to erase any word associated with the name of Christ.

If it where not for Christmas what would we have to give to the world, that is lost?

God gave the world the greatest gift when He breathed into our nostril the breath of life, in the very beginning of time. We choose to live by accepting that pure air we breathe. Not too many people want to stop breathing, but many are breathing impure air and experiencing the consequences, shame and disgrace. In the beginning of time men had to choose rather to obey God, or Satan and it seems people want to obey Satan and stamp out anything to do with God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit.

I trust this Christmas we see what the wise men saw and that was a star which stood over where Jesus was born. Herod the King could not see the star, can we?

Herod wanted the wise men to tell him were he lay, they did not. Herod was so angry he had all the children killed from 2 years old and younger. He tried to stamp out the name of Jesus, but he could not. I do not think man can destroy the name of Jesus, for He came to give us life more abundantly, as we accept the greatest gift of all. God gave us His only Son as a baby to grow into manhood, so we could go through rejection. The world is doing a great job of rejecting the Jews, the Christians and truth, but God is going to protect us as He did Jesus from Herod.

Note what the wise men did first as they worshiped God, they surrendered to His will. Then they gave gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Gold is symbolic of riches of a Kingly person of wealth. God wants us to treat Jesus as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, as we are a part of the Kingdom of God. What riches we have, as we accept the way, the truth, and the life, He then brings blessing, not curses.  Gold is going to be in abundance in Heaven and He wants us to have His riches now of His grace and mercy. All we have to do is say Lord Iím sorry for doing wrong, forgive me and help me to do your will. Then you can rejoice in the Lords gift of eternal life right now.

Frankincense was the most fragrant of all perfumes and itís symbolic of the aroma of the presence of the Lord upon our lives as Christians. We all have a smell, an atmosphere and I trust itís the love of the Lord. Itís the Honey in the rock that draws people to the Lord, as we are salt and light in a world that is going sour. Lets not hid our light, but reveal by actions that we are following Jesus.

Myrrh was used for medical purposes and embalming and that is what is needed to day, to heal our sin sick souls. When we die out to the Lord, he gives us the myrrh to preserve us to carry on, as Ambassadors for Christ. He heals the broken hearted when they cry out for forgiveness for He loves the whole world and all within it.

Here we are December 17, 2005, what a beautiful time of the year, people celebrating the birth of our Savior and King just as the wise men did. Many do not know what He has to offer and do not really care, for they get to do what they want to. I hear often, you do your thing and Iíll do mine, so donít bother me. Who do you think you are telling me; Jesus is the way, truth and life? I wonder how Jesus felt when He tried to help others, including Judas. I find that even in the Church today, people do not want to accept reality. Reality is difficult, for it requires the Lords will, not mine. I am so thankful this Christmas season it is still JESUS, OTHERS AND YOU that spells JOY.
