As we start a new year, we wonder what is ahead of us. We wonder if the seas will be calm, and if we can achieve more this year.

We don’t need to worry about tomorrow. Jesus  tells us that tomorrow has enough worries of its own. We need to concentrate on the here and now. What can we do today to make our future brighter?

We all make our New Year’s resolutions, but in reality they are only a list. They don’t happen if we don’t take action.

Think about what you want to accomplish this year, and go for it. No stammering. No hesitation. Just plodding ahead and making those dreams come true.

So many of us think we know what we want, and then never do it. We just need to take that first step.

I have committed myself to get back to writing on my books everyday. I never did nearly enough writing last year. I stumbled around wondering if I was good enough to be an author. Well, I already am one with my first book being published and doing well.

Check out:

Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, by clicking on the “Bookstore,” tab at the top of this page.

Never feel you aren’t wise enough to accomplish your goals and dream. Go for it, and you will see that you are a much better person than you ever thought you could be!

Remember:

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Not Happy With the Job You have?

We still have 31 days to go.  It would be awesome if we can make it. .

It sometimes seems hard to trudge to work each day. Some jobs are not all that fun to go to. I was a very lucky man and worked as a teacher. The rewards were much brighter than the dark days of winter when I had to drive to work in the snow.

I did have those days when I wondered if I really wanted to get up and go to work. Then I would see a garbage man loading up someone’s garbage on a very raining day and the wind was blowing.

Sure I was going to a school where there are kids yelling and needing control, but to be out in the cold and shivering in a job that not many people would want to have made me glad to see the kids coming into my class. Besides, they always warmed me up with their smiling faces.

Do you have a kind of job that you wish you didn’t have? Do you drag yourself out of bed and force yourself to get ready? You aren’t alone. There are millions of people just like you. Off to work. Work hard all day. Come home, too tired to do anything but eat dinner and go to bed. Sound familiar?

God uses people in what ever job they may have. He doesn’t care if you dig ditches, or are a CEO for a huge business. He uses the meek, poor, rich, ordinary people of this earth.

What ever your lot is on life, God can use you. He will guide you to do far more wonderful things than you could ever imagine, if you just let Him.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7.

Wow! What a response for the last post. 5,099 hits for one day is a record that will be hard to beat. What was the title? “We Never Have to Carry Our Sins With us.”

People wanted to know how to get the burden of sins out of their lives. Sins can pull you down like a huge magnate. It doesn’t matter who you are. You could be a teacher, doctor, garbage truck driver, soldier, or a pizza delivery guy.

Satan doesn’t care what you do. He just wants to control you. He uses guilt to push you down, and he hopes you stay down.  He delights is seeing you in pain. He delights in seeing you ready to give-up. I know I have been there.

I was at the end of my rope, and ready to be placed on Satan’s trophy wall. He had me right where he wanted me. I was Sitting in my Ford Explorer ready to check out of this hotel called earth.

That is where God came to my rescue. I should have known He was there all the time waiting for me to cry out to Him. That is exactly what I did. I said, “GOD I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!

There was an instant calmness in my Explorer. It was as if God was saying, ” IT’s about time you came back to me.”

Yes, I was and the end of that thin rope, but what I didn’t know was that I was really holding on to the hem of God’s robe.

There is never a time when God isn’t near you. If He feels far away, guess who moved.

Always depend on God to see you through your storms and trials. It is when those storms come that He is nearest. He allows them to happen, but He helps calm them.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
