Do you take time to enjoy the fruits of your labor? Things may not always turn out the way you want, don’t turn it into a stew. Sure, darkness looms, but it can never stop; the sun from rising in the morning. Don’t throw the fret, your worries, all your anxieties, and your agitations into a pot. Letting it all simmer, while you stir the pot; until it turns into a bitter stew. Instead, look at all your blessings, all the good fortune. Take a moment to see all of the wonderful ingredients, available to make up a good character; use them to become the best you!
Do you have a floury attitude, have you learned not to cry over spilled milk? Do you use the broken eggy moments, as an opportunity to strengthen your faith? Don’t use it as an excuse, to forever fall apart. Get some sugar from your loved ones, add the spice of life to your heart. Use your God given potential; to bake, not flake. When the heat gets hotter, your faith gets baked in deeper. Show God, that you’re truly grateful; for the sweeter moments in life. Have your cake, be sure to eat it too. Celebrate life, and you happen to fall; Celebrate the Recovery. Don’t make life become, a distasteful stew!
I know a man, a brother, a father; someone I call friend. His name, Stuart L. Tutt; The Stu. Someone I believe, doesn’t let just a name define. When you take the Stu out of the equation; what truly defines, is the love permeating within. Ponder, don’t wonder; you’re going up yonder. Bro, that’s something you don’t ever have to Stu over. What the enemy meant for evil, God uses for good!
You have a BEAUTIFUL HUMBLE heart; full of love, COMPASSION. Make the PRIORITY forever be; your faith, your kids. All God truly requires, is for us to have a GRACEFUL heart. To show KINDNESS; to faithfully NAVIGATE the JOURNEY of life. Being VULNERABLE, never easy; but when it’s all said and done. A good, faithful heart; will come face to face, with the MAJESTIC presence of our Maker!
“A” is for ACTION. Most people have the best of intentions, intent without Action; means you weren’t ready to act, to make it become a reality!
“F” is for FREEDOM. We have the Freedom to choose, but when we‘re not truly willing to share our heart. It means that your heart have not yet learned, what it is; to truly be free!
“R” is for RESPECT. I can appreciate, I Respect a person; who’s willing to share their life experiences. Even though it’s painful, uncomfortable. Just so others can see, that you’re truly willing to be a light; when their heart is lost within the darkness!
“I” is for INTEGRITY! Honest, ethical, sincerity; words used to explain what is integrity. But more than that, it defines your true strength of character. If your character is truly virtuous, no one will ever need to question your integrity!
“E” is for EVALUATE. We should always take a moment to evaluate; do we do things wholeheartedly, or out of obligation? Do we give to get, or give not expecting? There’s never a moment, that we shouldn’t stop, to truly evaluate!
“N” is for NAVIGATE. Sometimes it’s difficult to navigate, the journey we call life. That’s why we need people around us, family, friends. Yes, we should pray; asking for guidance; with the faith to believe. But, also use the blueprint that God has shown; even Adam needed a helpmate, to help navigate his world!
“D” is for DESIRE. What do you desire, is it a bigger house, a better car; is it a loving marriage, or the perfect kids? All great desires, but if the first desire isn’t a closer walk with God? You will never truly be able to have the true desires, of your heart!
Greetings friends, today’s post, is the introduction to the new 3rd Friday post. The 3rd Friday will be mostly dedicated to the readers, for what I call, iRequest.
