The Narrow Gate is Calling You

I would venture to say that what you feel in your heart is God’s calling seems to be the most difficult path of everything presented to you.

3 Tips On Having A Healthy Perspective

magnfying glassJohn Maxwell said, “Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.”

I actually like the word respond better than react… but Maxwell’s point is clear. 10% of life is well, just life. You can’t control it. You can’t wish it away. Unexpected events happen, sickness, job loss, pain – this is life.

But 90% is how we respond to that 10%. Wow, that sure is sobering! [click to continue…]
