Leave your past where it belongs and bring your future into existence

by Bruno Deshayes on 04 May 2017 permalink
No point looking back over your shoulder. Everybody makes mistakes. The cure fits in three words: Get Over It! But while you are mulling over the same scenario of where things might have gone wrong; your future seems ever so distant.

The best way to pull yourself out of that grind is to thank God for each new day. Do you get up early with a sense of expectation, determined to make the most of every opportunity - or do you grumble about how the good old days were stolen from you?

Where you focus your mind is where your creativity will start working. You were born to solve problems - so welcome problems that come your way. See them as juicy opportunities to turn the tables on the devil. You have only two choices: the enemy of your soul or the lover of your soul. Which one will you listen to?

How can you make your life count today? What is your sphere of influence? What makes you tick? What is your gifting? What is it that you do exceedingly well? What comes to you naturally? What would be your ideal job? What is the thing you are passionate about? What is the topic you are an expert on?

Anyone still wondering after this barrage of pointed questions? You do not want to take a personal inventory because somewhere, somehow you have left the enemy of your soul rob you of your dream and destiny... It is time to regain the lost ground. Even what seems like wasted time can be turned into good. You will appreciate your mountain top experience even more so if you have been through the valley of the shadow of death first. The paradox is that you need the humility of an adverse experience to steward the prosperity to come. In Christian lingo it's called picking up your cross daily. Sunshine comes after the rain. Calm comes after the storm. You have to weather both equally well.

Ask yourself: "Right now, what is the most productive thing I should be doing?" Is there an opportunity to do good in your environment? Do you need to hone your skills in one area to be trusted for your next promotion? No pain - no gain. If you knew the future there would be no challenge, no risks to take, no joy of contending... everything would be reduced to a fatalistic attitude. Only God knows the future - probably because He is the only one who can be trusted with it... Instead you have been given the unique opportunity to bring your own future into being by the things you are striving for today. Remember Christ's words: "To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life."


I want to finish well

by Bruno Deshayes on 02 Feb 2017 permalink
There are scores of people who had a brilliant start in life but screwed up along the way. Anybody can start the race - will you finish with flying colours?

Adversity is part of life. It is as common as the air we breathe. Actually nobody asked you your opinion. You are part of planet earth and you have a job to do until your number is called. Are you going to make your mark in this world? Or are you going to dissipate your energy and your worth in wild living and obsessions?

Keeping your eyes on the goal at the end of the race is what will keep you on course. But how do you keep your bearings when everybody else is going crazy?

Being a homemaker and raising children is as worthy an existence as being a head of state - and less dangerous too! But what sort of values will you impart on the next generation? Will your marriage stay in one piece by the time it is their turn to marry?

Do you have that sinking feeling that you are losing your connections? Do you find it hard to keep in touch with those that matter to you? Are you always the one to ring up?

What gives your life a meaning is the ability to build up others through simple things. You can talk to people you know on the phone but it is a bad way to get to know strangers. Facebook friends are not really friends unless you get a chance to walk together - meaning share a common activity face to face, not across the internet. That could be something as simple as sharing a meal.

These days people are shy about entertaining folks in their homes. Like if they've got something to hide. Maybe they are afraid you might come back with a pickup truck and steal their belongings.

Just like showing the palm of your hands during a confrontation (meaning you don't hide a weapon), letting people know who you are in your environment (your home) is a token that you are real and trustworthy.

So if you want to finish well, what are you living for? What are the core values that are making your existence worthwhile? What pearls of wisdom have you gathered in a world that clearly has lost its bearings? If you don't stand for something, you are standing for nothing. People say there are no absolutes in this world - everything is relative. Do as you please as long as it does not impeach on the freedom of others...
