Give what you want more of.

|

If we want more of something, we must give more of it away. In my quiet time today, I realized that we should be giving God 10% of everything.

It moves to our hearts, then our bodies react accordingly. It then controls our choices, our actions, our reactions. Happiness is the one thing that we … Read More

The Struggle is real…or is it?

|

  The struggle is real… or is it? To see the view you must climb the mountain. Sometimes it’s hard, sometimes we slip, or fall, or even skin a knee, but we get back up and we keep going. Why? Because, quitting is not an option, because, we didn’t start this journey to give up half way, because, we started … Read More
