"Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet."
Do you help yourself or hinder yourself when it comes to going after the things you want in life?
LIFE is full of the personal daily challenges that are constantly awaiting or being presented to you. Whether it be work/job related, personal issues, financial, dating/relationships, goals or dreams. What are you living for? What do you want in your life? It all can be obtainable, but first you must "Help yourself, and then God will help you."
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Howard Thurman
As Christians, we must seek God and put our faith in him, to help with problems, obtain our goals, and come to a peace of mind. We must acknowledge our true faith and beliefs and truly know God is watching over us. BUT, we must not sit back and coast along in life and expecting everything you want to land at your doorstep.
Many Christians expect God to do more than His (GOD's) part, and soon forget that we must play "our" part too. God will only help you, if you help yourself. YOU must be the one that takes action, steps up to the challenge & take the first step on your journey or adventure and then realize God will be with you along the way.
"Help yourself, and God will help you." ~ St. Joan of Arc
You must be the one to JUMP into life, God will not push you, but will be with you along the way to watch and guide.
(Above: Me jumping "figuratively")
“There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.” Howard Thurman
Now I'm talking directly to you reading this... Yes YOU! You are an amazing person, abilities and qualities that are truly unique to just you. You have the ability to achieve anything and everything you want out of life, (love, great job, family, great friends, world records, world peace ;), etc.. ANYTHING you want) and all you have to do is take the first step yourself and carry your faith in God along the way!
God awaits to delight in you! ~ Although HE is waiting for you to make the first move from confidence in your Faith & ABILITY
Your life is your life, Don't let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be on the watch, There are ways out.. There is light somewhere.
It may not be much light, but it beats the darkness.
Be on the watch, God will offer you chances, know them, take them.
You can't beat death, but you can beat death in life sometimes….
And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be.
Your life is your life, know it while you have it, You are marvelous.
God waits to delight in you…
- Charles Bukowski
Happiness is out there. You can get more than your share, but you simply must help yourself.
