Last year was a time of reflection for me. It was time for me to take a long look in the mirror and see if I liked what I saw. I was able to list some character traits about myself that, yes, I am proud to have.
- I like to help others any way I can.
- I started learning about things like doing benefits for people who truly needed help [worked on 3 of them just last year].
So, as I started seeing these things in myself, I started asking what I could do different...you know, what CHANGES could I make. To the human being...CHANGE is an ugly word. Our very nature fights it. We just don't like change, even if it is to better us. I fought the resistance to change. I faced fears one by one and I started this year making changes. I started my home business, I have started decreasing debt, and learning all I can. I don't want to just absorb knowledge like a sponge though. I want to share what I learn and help others. It can never be all about me...if it is...then I have lost focus and need to regroup.
Charity is the foundation of the world. We need others in our lives. We need to help others in their time of need and even if that is giving out of our need rather than our abundance. You want a blessing? Bless someone else. Don't give them the table scraps, sit them at the table with you and allow them to partake of the meat. Don't do it expecting something in return...but do it out of love.
We live in a fast food, the faster the service, the happier we are...give me...kind of world today. What if our forefathers had only thought about themselves? What if they didn't consider the future generations? Where would we be? What freedoms would we have? They pioneered and set up this great country we live in. We have to stay focused on our Creator, we have to bless Him, cling to His truths, and not be deceived by everything out there.
As I work to grow my new home business, it is my prayer that it brings glory to God and that it is a blessing to others. If I gain from it as a result of this, I am happy. If I don't...then maybe I need to look in that mirror again and see if my priorities are where they should be.
I pray that you are blessed by this. May you have a blessed and safe day.
