Deny Yourself

I'm a selfish person. Very selfish. This fact has been banging its cement self against my head quite often for the past six months or so.

And in many ways, I've tried to just not be selfish.

But it doesn't work.

I am slowly learning that you can't just not be selfish. You must go do something unselfish. You have to take your brain and say to yourself, well instead of being selfish I will go do something kind.

Then go do it.

And that does work.

You can't replace something with nothing.

Life's Tough - Deal with It

Life is difficult. Always. You're always facing decisions. You're always going to have a hard time doing something. I don't care what it is. You are going to have a tough life. Here's the question. Are you going to quit? Or are you going to keep going?

Your career might be kicking your rear right now. Does that mean you're going to quit? Are you going to give up? Are you going to not try as hard? Maybe your marriage is on the rocks. Are you going to quit? Are you going to give up?

Guess what.

Life will just get harder and harder.

And some will give up. But the ones who win and the ones who make it to the end are the ones who stick their nose to the ground and just push through the hard times and Never Give Up. Eventually there will be good times. Maybe it's when you go to heaven. But there will be good times ahead. Put your eyes on the prize and run and don't be weary. Obey God. Read His Word.
