What’s around the corner

We can see to the corner. God sees what is around the corner. I need to be flexible and open about circumstances in my life.

If you were a commercial…

I watched a great message from Andy Stanley last Sunday. He asked the question, If you were a commercial, what would you be advertising? Something to think about on this St. Patrick’s Day.

Get what you want

If you want more money, give away more money. If you want to be appreciated, show more appreciation. If you want to be loved, demonstrate your love to others.

Roots

We had a strong snowstorm here in Fredericksburg on 1/3. There were trees that I thought were so strong that came tumbling down. Their root system was not strong enough to make it through the storm. As I reflect, I wonder if my root system is strong enough to battle the storms of life. I say yes! My wife, family, friends and church have all circled around me during my time of need. How deep is your root system?

Comparison

Success is not like Hollywood. It is the ordinary day to day tasks that garner success. Hollywood makes it seem like it is all roses. If it is not easy, then something must be wrong. In addition, we see all the smiling faces and accomplishments on social media and we tend to fall into the comparison trap. Why does my neighbor have this or that and I do not? We overlook all the work that most likely went into getting what we covet.  To improve, Keep looking vertically versus horizontally!
