Why am I here?

Church Set Free

I read a post this morning (fantastic by the way) about how to garner more comments out here on WordPress, meet and greets and the like. It got me to wonder that age old question, why am I here?

What started out as a recovery breakthrough and call from God has taken on a life of its own that led me all the way to the Catholic church. I’ve met people out here in blog-land who’ve accepted me throughout the entirety of this journey, and some who have not.

There is a way to bring these into your life.  There are certain principals in the Bible that people have used for thousands of years to bring these good things. Jesus said faith is key to receiving good things.

Faith starts in the mind, so to achieve success, train your mind to activate the power you need for success in these areas. Psychologists have said for many years that your attitude, your confidence that you can achieve a goal is the most important thing towards achieving it. A famous study by a Yale professor named Rosenthal demonstrated that when teachers believed their students were top achievers, they became better students just because of the teachers faith in them.

Malala

Is 11:6...And a little child shall lead them... I couldn't think of a better person to refer this verse to than Ms. Malala Yousafzai.  At just eighteen years old she has already made a monumental  accomplishment that would make any high school Harvard hopefuls green with envy and any boomer-age tycoons stoop low in shame.… Continue reading Malala
