Pray without ceasing

I heard a cd yesterday about people who volunteer in the church and what was different about them than people who do not. The answer was prayer. These people started off their day with the first priority being prayer. Their prayer was specific and intentional for focus and giving their time to God. These people understand that prayer is not for God, just as tithing is not for God. He does not need our money or our prayers. We need to give both, to grow in grace and be strengthened to become the best instrument we can possibly be to bring Him glory. So now im asking myself am I being one of the people who just show up to church and then go home ? Am I giving my time to God as my first priority of the day ? Just a little thought for today :)

stuck on san pedro

Ok've been thinking a lot about poverty and my dad always says "poor is something that you do not something that you are." How do people get to the "poor" point . What I mean by that is when do they get to the point of complacency? Yesterday by san Pedro st. I wad so saddened by all the homeless and others just standing around passing this God given time just sitting here. Then we drove two streets up and the look and feel of the city was changed. The people were walking faster with smiles on there faces and a bounce in they're step. There was also one other thing I noticed , there was one homeless man over there , he had a bag of cans and although he was still holding a sign asking for help , Just the fact that he had those cans told me he was willing to work for it. He got up out of the slums of san Pedro st. And surrounded himself with a better atmosphere. I believe we need to teach people this concept because how many are out there right now thinking they're stuck on san Pedro st not realizing the light and opportunity shining just two streets away. And all they have to do is get up and walk. I've heard someone say before "take up your cross and follow me" sometimes the hardest thing for us to do is just the thing God wants us to do to succeed. So let's follow Him. Into the homes of the broken and teach them how to rise above the complacency they have been taught. I'm so happy to represent the LIFE business where we can reach millions. ..:.........Jen

Get your mind right

Today Miguel and I learned that there are 2 components you need to become wealthy. The first is an opportunity, there are many countries in the world that are rich with opportunities the united states in which we live being one of them and because there are great opportunities here we are very prosperous. The second component to become wealthy is having wealth thinking. Now the wealth thinking is the tricky part since we already have the first one handed to us since were born in this great nation. How do we aquire wealth thinking when were being taught the opposite. As for myself I learned from some people that teach we don't have to be victims of societies " wealthy is driving a nice car living in a bank owned home, thinking". The people were learning from teach about entreprenuership character financial principals , good solid principals that made this country great and teach us not to just sit idly by waiting for a bail out of our debt or even deeper family problems we want to sweep under a rug for someone els to deal with. They teach us we are the project and were in charge of our thinking and you are what you eat So we better be eating good. Check out check out L.I.F.E -JEN

  • There's a poem I would like to share today that my mom gave me when I was 16 and wondering what I was doing in my life, little did I know then but I had a lot to learn. Thankfully I had my mothers guidance, and this poem to reflect upon in tuff times.
  • This Too Shall Pass

    If I can endure for this minute
    Whatever is happening to me,
    No matter how heavy my heart is
    Or how dark the moment may be-

    If I can remain calm and quiet
    With all the world crashing about me,
    Secure in the knowledge God loves me
    When everyone else seems to doubt me-

    If I can but keep on believing
    What I know in my heart to be true,
    That darkness will fade with the morning
    And that this will pass away, too-

    Then nothing in life can defeat me
    For as long as this knowledge remains
    I can suffer whatever is happening
    For I know God will break all of the chains

    That are binding me tight in the darkness
    And trying to fill me with fear-
    For there is no night without dawning
    And I know that my morning is near.
