Adding Your Words to God's Word

Time for God

Adding Your Words to God's Word

Now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord. 1 Samuel 15:1

In our bedroom is a bookshelf full of different-sized Bibles: my first one, my husband’s for good attendance at Sunday school, Grandmother’s well-worn volume, various translations. Most are old but clean, and the pages make a crinkle sound when turned.

Though each is special, the one I now use is the first I’ve ever had that feels like my very own personal Bible. Why? For two simple reasons: I write in it–and I carry it around with me. It has become a close friend.

I remember exactly when I started marking in my new Bible. It was in a Bible study class. On the first day, the leader suggested that we underline meaningful Scriptures and make notations of our responses to the passages, adding dates for future reference.

Somehow it sounded sacrilegious. But as I saw others around me doing it, I carefully began to underline a few passages here and there. I felt self-conscious at first, but slowly the habit developed.

Today, my Bible is filled with marks and scribbles that are meaningful only to me. The cover has grown dog-eared, some pages are loose, and I know I will have to get a new Bible soon. But when I put this one on the shelf next to all the others, it will be special because it is my own spiritual diary, a measuring stick of my steps of growing faith.

Heavenly Father,  let me not be afraid to make my Bible personal and alive so that Your Word will grow precious to me through the years.

A Knight you can't forget, No matter what!

 "Being a knight of the 21st Century is all about character. I AM a character and I HAVE character. And, as a knight, I am meant to be a part of the transformation of your character. The word 'character' comes from the Greek word for 'stylus.' A stylus is an instrument used to either carve a piece of wood or to mark a piece of papyrus (paper). It carves, marks and shapes. All Knights must have character and must embrace their character. I have a role to play in the story of God, which means I AM a character. I am to play that role with integrity and grace, which means I am to HAVE character that can be measured as either good, or lacking goodness. My character is good to the degree that it grows good things in other people, and reflects the ideal that Christ established for me. So, as you begin this day, do so remembering that your life and character are a stylus. With them, carve beautiful works of grace in the lives of those whom you love and meet. Write well on the parchment of others' hearts; messages of grace and hope. That's what Knights do, and a Knight you are!"

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), 5 Simple Suggestions

What does Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and positive thinking have to do with one another? Many people that suffer from ADD often develop negative patterns in their thinking process. They might also get frustrated more easily while dealing with certain challenges in life. Having constant thoughts of negativity or a dismal outlook on life only reinforces the difficulty in facing those challenges, which makes it harder to move forward.

However, practicing and utilizing positive thinking will allow individuals with ADD as well as others, to clearly focus on accomplishments and strengths in life, which helps to motivate and generate happiness. Because of this, individuals can devote more time for progress in their life and less time feeling useless and not moving anywhere. Here are 5 simple suggestions that will help you take back your life and put you on a path towards positive thinking.

1. Keep Repeating What You Are Grateful For In Life
Many challenges will not seem as bad when you remind yourself over and over again of the good things in life. Dedicate a few minutes each day and give appreciation to all the goodness that exists. No matter how small things might seem, they can still have a big impact on your life.

2. Eliminate Negative Thoughts
Negative thoughts can grow, and grow fast. But, they can't control you unless you allow them to. Once a negative thought or feeling is in your mind, immediately break away from it and forget about it. The only way you can take back your life is by getting rid of the negative thoughts.

3. Take Your Life Back Simply By Giving Back
One of the best ways to feel good about yourself is simply by helping others. Try volunteering your time or maybe even donating more. Many people have certain skills that can be useful to some charitable organizations such as carpentry work, plumbing, electrical, computer repair, cooking and more. Volunteering your time and effort has a way of generating positive energy in the universe. The more you put out there, the more you will get back.

4. Increase Positive Energy By Being Social
Many people, who are lonely, often generate negative feelings and emotions. In order to take back your life, you need to become more involved within social communities. Creating a social atmosphere for yourself and being around others who are positive will help you to generate positive energy for a happier life.

5. Think about Yourself
How can you take back your life? Start by taking better care of yourself. Being positive is a whole lot easier when you feel good about yourself. Get outside and go for walks or a bicycle ride. Start noticing what you are eating and begin eating more foods that will be healthier for you. Start exercising or become involved with activities within your community that will help you to feel better about yourself. Are you getting enough sleep? Make sure you rest enough each day as this can be a powerful boost in energy and positive thinking.
Surround yourself with positive people.

Take back your life by letting go of the negative thoughts, emotions and feelings that have been holding you back from being happy, productive and energetic. Learn how to get organized and stay organized, which will help to reduce stress and negativity. But, the most important thing is, learn to move forward from the thoughts that have been keeping you from your own personal success.
