Run the Race

We live in a society that is used to doing whatever feels good right now. But instant gratification never brings lasting satisfaction. If we operate in self-control through the power of the Holy Spirit living in us, you (we) choose to do things that contribute to the goal that you (we) in mind. We must discipline ourselves now that we will reap the reward of reaching our goal later.

Paul taught, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [the prize] and make it yours” (1 Corinthians 9:24). Stay focused on the goal. God will give you the grace to continue moving toward it.

I just want to thank God for allowing me to finish school and move forward ….

Follow God’s Spirit

And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. Romans 8:27

Many people follow their own desire or other people’s advice instead of following the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is given to each one of us to lead us into fullness of our destiny, and into the fullness of what Jesus died to give us.

Your faith in Jesus gives you the promise of heaven, but God wants to work all things together for your good in this life too (Romans 8:28). Don’t be satisfied with receiving half of what Jesus died to give you. Follow the spirit’s leading so that you will get all that God has for you. Seek God for clear guidance to remain right in the center of His perfect will for every single day.

Mr. Obama's DNC Speech

    President Obama formally accepted the Democratic nomination for President in Charlotte last night.  The speech it had an all too familiar feel to it for a speech that was big on rhetoric and little on ideas. Shortly after pointing out how Americans are growing weary over the heated political climate in Washington, Obama blasted Republicans, lambasting them over their convention last week.

I think Mr. Obama gave a solid speech but not good as the one his wife Michelle Obama gave Tuesday night. Mr. Obama connected himself with the American Dream for the first time at the convention. His speech was much better than everybody at Tampa.

As far as substance Mr. Obama said nothing but he said nothing so much better than Mr. Romney said nothing.
He ended with a resounding and wildly cheered repeat of his basic theme of a bigger government pursing big goals. “I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now.”
“Yes, our path is harder but it leads to a better place. Yes, our road is longer, but we travel it together. We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind.”
“We pull each other up.”
Overall I think the Democrats pulled off a way better convention than the Republicans did last week. In this case style over substance wins!
