Battle Lessons 101

Posted: August 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

Lesson #1

“…as unreliable as a faulty bow.”
Psalm 78:57b

May this never be said of you! A bow is used to kill. When a bear or man is running to kill you, you’re gonna want your bow to be in prime working condition! I personally wouldn’t take a bow to a bear fight, but whatever.

There are many things this “bow” can represent, too. The writer of the ancient ballad above used this bow analogy to convey a point. You’ll need to rely on people and things during challenging times, so whoever or whatever your bow is make sure it functions properly!

Your friend is your bow, your car, your furnace, and yes even your spouse… Take care of them, because they care for you. A question I have had to ask, “Why would we keep a faulty bow around anyway?”

For one, many times it, he or she may be faulty, but they’re all you’ve got. Sorry ladies! And second, we are likely hopeful the next time we need our bow the faultiness will be gone…and is that’s faulty logic at best.

The real question to be asked is

at what point will something or someone’s faultiness become a liability to your own life pursuits?

I’m learning that just because they’re around doesn’t mean you should trust them. Your reliance on something or someone could very well cost you serious blood. If the bow is in your hand you will rely on it. When you rely on something that fails it could cost you precious time and resources. The most precious being YOUR energy. Most can’t afford a loss of energy, because it will be needed to overcome life’s next set of obstacles.

In most cases (apart from helping someone) it’s probably best not to even keep a faulty bow within arms reach. Our tendency will be to grab for what looks like the tool we need for our critical situation, BUT it will be our fault and not the bows when we realize it still doesn’t work.

A Higher Dimension

Posted: May 7, 2014 in Uncategorized

It’s not often that we get a birds eye view of life. When we do it’s typically a profound moment. Having your life “flash before your eyes” can shape your future if you let it, but we can just as easily forget the wisdom we learned in those moments too… I know a person who while facing a life and death situation expressed he could see the Big Picture and wasn’t overwhelmed. This viewpoint enabled him to do what he believed was right, regardless of the negative consequences that might come from following his heart. We can harness such an attitude of confidence too if we look at life from a Higher Dimension!

The Big Picture view comes from a spiritual place. A place with a vantage point better than our current physical one. A dimension where value is placed on the quality of your relationships, rather than your Resume. Its wise to compare our current life-plan against what we’ve learned to value through life’s difficulties. By periodically doing a comparison we can assess if we’re living life according to our values. For example, if you’ve learned people are more important than money then you should probably be prioritizing time with your family and friends, over a few more hours at work. If you’ve learned that life can end abruptly and you want to be around to see your children grow up, then you’ll probably adopt a more cautious attitude when driving, flying, rafting, etc.. Maybe, you’ve learned to value the people closest in your life and have adopted an attitude of kindness regardless of your differences! 

There’s little doubt that having a Big Picture vantage point from a Higher Dimension will prove invaluable for you and I in the days and years to come. So let’s do our best to align our actions with the values we’ve learned and over time the results will be nothing short of a life without regrets.

 

3 SIMPLE STEPS TO YOUR SUCCESS

steps

1. “Seek 1st the Kingdom of God…”

There’s one way to assure you have God’s blessing in whatever you undertake. That’s to make “God’s Will” your priority. We may think we’ll make real progress if we just go after the idea we’re carrying around in our head, because we feel so certain we will succeed. However, 20 years of experience as a “go getter” has taught me that submitting our plans to God for His blessing, through prayer, our chances of meaningful success become multiplied!

Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? … But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”     Matthew 6:25 & 33

2. “Lean not on your own understanding…”

Similar to point one, point two continues this process of “submitting our desires” to God in order to receive His blessing and provide the knowledge & wisdom necessary for avoiding common moral pitfalls. Nothing can derail a person from fulfilling their goals like Moral Failure. When things are not working out the way we expected it’s possible that additional insight as to how we should go about accomplishing our task is needed! Many times our answer comes through prayer and patience!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

“…in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”  Philippians 4:6b

3. Seek counsel!

It’s not easy for some people to humble themselves and ask for advice from others, but it’s paramount to gaining the insight necessary to achieving success. Someone out there knows more than us on any given topic, and can prevent us from “spinning our wheels”?! Talking with those who have “been there” can save you a lot of time, energy & money!

“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.”  Proverbs 12:15

CONSISTENTLY APPLY THESE 3 SIMPLE, YET VITAL STEPS &  YOU’LL EVENTUALLY FIND SUCCESS! 😉
