The Grind

“Poor is he who works with a negligent and idle hand, But the hand of the diligent makes him rich.” Proverbs 10:4 Amp

You made it through today.
Your GRIND gave you victory.
You didn’t give in to idleness.
You made a difference today, whether you think so or not.
You set an example and gave hope.
Great, Reward, In, Never, Doubting you would be victorious today.
Ah Yeah, The GRIND.

Can you see me?
Can you hear me?
I am right here.
I have not gone far.
I am in reaching distance.
I am not hidden.
I am in plain sight.
My voice is not silent.
I see,
I hear,
I touch,

QuickHit: TODAY is a gift given, a gift to be treasured and shared. There is no return receipt on TODAY. Lets face it,  TODAY  is all that we have. No one has the power to guarantee tomorrow. In spite of all man’s technological advances we are still unable to live in yesterday or tomorrow. TODAY the G.I.F.T. (God’s Immediate Free Treasure) is here. How will you use it? Will you choose to use this G.I.F.T. as an opportunity to better yourself so that you may be a blessing instead of a burden?  Will you choose to give thanks  for it and seize the opportunity to help someone else? Will you choose to share it with the ones you love? Whatever you choose to do with it is up to you, just don’t let it go to waste. You only get one TODAY.

For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch His (Jesus) robe, I will be healed.”
Mark 5.28.NLT
This woman thought, acted on her thought and received what she thought. She had N.O.W. (No Opportunity Wasted) faith, L.I.V.E. (Live In Victory Everyday) faith not D.E.A.D. (Doubt Ends All Decisions) faith. What are you thinking about? Your thoughts today can very well shape your destiny. -PD

 TIME Happens. It is here NOW and will continue to move forward whether we like it or not. TIME is indifferent, insatiable, inflexible and instant. TIME is no respecter of persons; it does not care if you are black, white, yellow, red or green. It doesn’t care whether you are short, tall, skinny or obese, short hair long hair, a lot of hair or no hair TIME does not care. TIME will eat you up and move on to the next, it will unapologetically consume you and everything you’ve got and whatever you leave behind. You will run out before TIME will. TIME will not change for anyone whether you are rich or poor. You can’t bargain with it, you can’t buy it. 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day. It is not changing for you or anyone else. It remains the same. TIME is here NOW and it is moving. It will not wait for anyone or anything. So what are we to do with TIME? What I just described about TIME are what we all know and someTIMEs complain about. We say things to the effect of, I dont have enough TIME, I wish I had more TIME, That came right on TIME. What are we going to do with it? TIME (Taking Initiative  and Moving with Energy). What is it that you have been planning or wanting to do. Call that guy, call that girl, apologize to someone, start school, finish school, get a new job, quit your old job, start a business, be your own boss, take a nap or wake up. All of these things take place within TIME. I don’t know what you plan to do with “your” TIME,  just do something with it besides letting it go to waste. Understand this, whatever you decide to do is going to take TIME. So when do you start? N.O.W.!!!!! NO OPPORTUNITY WASTED. This is your TIME given to you with just one promise. It is here for you at this moment and yours to control. So wake up, get up, wash up, brush up and dress up and get going!!! Your TIME IS wasting. Uh Oh! There goes another second.

image QuickHit: Today, choose to be someone’s solution. Choose to be their answer to prayer, to be their blessing. Nothing against self love, as a matter of fact, the Bible talks about loving yourself. “Love your neighbor as yourself” is a great quote to live by. So many times we find ourselves with a pompous, self afflicting, fake humility that deifies our own hidden agenda. We may say we are doing this or that for the sake of someone else, but in reality it is for our own self gratification. Lets just stop conning ourselves and be honest. I have to love me before I can love you, and I can’t love you without loving me. I have to look out for me, but I also have to look out for you. Are we getting this? I look forward to being your answer to your prayers because you are mine also. Let me leave you with this from “The Preacher”

It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls, the other helps, But if there’s no one to help, tough!  Two in a bed warm each other. Alone, you shiver all night.  By yourself you’re unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped. Ecclesiastes 4:10-12 from The Message

I believe that everyday begins with a door. Not a door made by the hands of man but of divine providence. On the other side of this door we can hear the knock of purpose, On the other side of this door we can hear the knock of opportunity and possibility. On the other side of the door is  a destiny in waiting. On the other side of the door we hear the call of wisdom. On the other side of the door there is joy. On the other side of the door is pain. On the other side of the door there are battles. Battles to fight, battles to win, battles to lose. On the other side of the door are adventures to live. Love and abundant life are on the other side. I hear the call, I hear the knock. Do I get up N.O.W. and open it? Do I  step through? Or do I sit, nurse my fear and complacency as I polish the unlocked chains that bind me?
