Don't Ever Stop Learning!

 Hello friends,

Here are some quotes and thoughts for the new year!
As I think about 2013, I am a little uncertain as to what this year will hold!
I know God will bring many new opportunities for me to endeavor in His work as I continue to grow in my relationship with God. What I can see this year are many new opportunities to Trust God, and keep my focus upon Him in the midst of great difficulty.

This is an excerpt from a book I read recently!  It really challenged me to review my impact on people, and focus on making a difference for God! I hope you enjoy reading it!

You must be continually learning from someone else who knows more than you do! You must be  continually passing information on to others! Discipling is a wonderful stretching experience! Life is not a meeting, it's a relationship! There are two kinds of personalities in the world and you are one of them! When you walk into a room your attitude says either "here I am" or " there you are" ! Which one are you? As a person, your eternity oriented task is, to affect others, and move them to God! 
Your life long task whether single or married is to influence everyone you can, by whatever means you can, to help them become precious treasures in God's sight!
Your public life should flow out of your private life! Be known to be a leader among people, by your appearance and your actions! Look quality, and think quality, talk quality, and expose yourself to quality, in entertainment and social life! Discipline yourself to bring every thought captive always! Don't get insensitive, don't get used to garbage. What goes in will come out, and pretty soon others will smell it! 

"Trust in The Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes, fear The Lord and 
depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel and marrow to thy bones, honor the lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine" Proverbs3:5-10

Here is a poem that always challenges me at the end of every year to ask myself what big things did I do for God this year? It is taken form Frank Bettger's book How I Raised Myself From Filure to Sucess on Selling. I hope this poem inspires you to continue strong for God this year and take the opportunities He gives you!


You are the man who used to boast
That you’d achieve the uttermost,
Some day.

You merely wished a show,
To demonstrate how much you know
And prove the distance you can go…

Another year we’ve just passed through.
What new ideas came to you?
How many big things did you do?

Time…left twelve fresh months in your care
How many of them did you share
With opportunity and dare?

Again, we do not find you on the list of Makers Good.
Explain the fact!
Ah No, ’twas not the chance you lacked!
As usual - you failed to act!
