Day 12 The Finisher Mindset

The Finisher Mindset

                               Choices lead to habits and habits define your character. You have probably heard this before. Ask yourself What does your character say about you? Well, let’s examine the pattern of your choices. Do you have a habit of starting things and not finishing. Bishop Cornelius Blake in a recent sermon said “ do what you signed up for and do it until it is finished”. Recently my teenage daughter came and matter of factly said “ I want to quit track”. My husband and I couldn’t believe it. I mean for over a year all she could talk about was joining track. We went to the track every Saturday to exercise and train. She seemed so excited and committed. But then, came the pain of her first loss, a coach that liked to push and get the most out of her, and the reality she had to also maintain her grades. We can certainly relate to that. However, the successful thinkers and business owners seem to master the art of finishing and that’s what sets them apart. 2 Corinthians 8:11 now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means. So beloved don’t plan tomorrow until you start managing your today.

Day 19 Start with Love Part 2

Start With Love part 2  The last 2 days have been about loving Jesus and being obedient. Yesterday the private group focused on “why I love Jesus”. One member said it’s like the song says “because he first loved me”. We are heading into the hardest part of the matter which is loving others. I’m not talking about just loving the people who love you. I mean loving the people who you know don’t like you or have your best interest in mind. You might ask why do we have to do that. Firstly, is it necessary to have that loving attitude and mindset because it drives your actions and your choices. Luke 6:27-36 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as

Day 17 Start With Love

Start With Love                                  Don’t complicate things. Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”  What can we possibly do or say to show our love and appreciation. The answer is found in John 14:15 “if you love me, keep my commandments”. I find that often times people complicate things way too much. We spend countless hours contemplating how to make progress in our lives. Yet many of us have closed ourselves off to the simplest concept of faith and love.   When we are lovers and doers we began to see things shift. The complexity is created in our minds. This challenge has been about training and   shaping the mind but nothing can substitute being in tune with God. Some things you have to know and hold on to. Keeping these principals in our hearts and minds make all the difference in the world. I can recall getting on a bike for the fir
