God is Doing Something New…For You!!

December 30, 2021

As I did my Bible study this morning, I was lead to this inspirational reading… “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it”? This is from Isaiah 43:19. Another version says, “Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it”?

I’ve read this verse many times, and it has always inspired me. However, it especially did today. As mentioned in my previous post, I am feeling very optimistic as we end this year and begin the next one. This verse confirmed my optimism! I feel like God is telling me to continue in the direction I am going. He is telling me that He has already begun the great work in my life, and it is up to me to see and seek His blessings.

The same is true for you. God is ready to do a great thing in your life. He promises that! I challenge you to see the great things He has already done, and to look out for the blessings that are coming next, knowing He always comes through.

If you are looking for a bit of optimism this year, I hope this can help. God can and will do a great work in your life. He has actually already started it. Can you see it?


Merry Christmas and a Hopeful New Year

December 29, 2021

First of all, to those that celebrate, a very Merry Christmas!! I’ve been away from this space for a while, though now finally have some down time to return to what I love to do..writing!

I’ve enhanced my knowledge significantly in the past few months, and feel the desire to share. I am also hoping to apply this knowledge to make 2022 an excellent and rewarding year.

Do you ever feel that you are on the verge of amazing things happening? That’s how I feel about the start of this new year. As long as I work hand in hand with God, allowing Him to call the shots and moving in the direction He has me go, I know I will experience greatness this year.

I certainly hope your hope and optimism for this coming year is very high as well. Know that God is with you, and follow His guidance. You will experience greatness as well. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


The Power of Beginnings

January 2, 2012

What do you think of when you see or hear “the beginning”? For me, it’s one of the most refreshing, optimistic phrases in our language. For example, we have entered a new year. Whatever happened last year or in any past year is done. Whatever mistakes I have made are buried. In this new year I have several goals I wish to accomplish. At this time I feel nothing but optimism. No obstacles have moved in my way. I haven’t failed or procrastinated yet. There is nothing except the feeling of optimism that I will accomplish these goals.

This same concept is true in any area of life. I am a big sports fan, and especially like baseball. One of the grandest days in sports is opening day of the baseball season. The feeling of optimism exudes. Every team has a fresh start and the belief that they can win a championship. This feeling exists for teams and players, regardless of how much they have failed in the past or what the so called experts are predicting.

Let us take this same optimism with us as this new year begins. More importantly, let us maintain this feeling of optimism and allow it to snowball to greater successes and victories. Let no one (especially yourself) say it can’t be done; when obstacles arise (and they certainly will), keep your mind fixed confidently on the desired outcome, knowing that it will still be accomplished.

One of the things I am most thankful for, is that God gives us this new beginning every 365 days. Now matter how much we believe we haven’t accompished yet (please know you’ve already accomplished a great deal), we are allowed a new start. In fact, God is even more generous than that. He allows us a new chance every 24 hours! The key is to take advantage of each of these time slots to move ahead to the accomplishment of our goals.

As this new year begins, I find it helpful to do two things. One is to thank God for the great blessings we have received in the past year, and previous years. Second, is to thank Him for this wonderful beginning and fresh start. Keep your mind fixed on the successful accomplishment of your goal, and the God that will help you get there. That combination has the makings of a very successful 2012. Enjoy the blessings : )

P.S. As always, I would love to hear about your goals for this upcoming year and other suggestions to help people reach their desired outcomes. It is very much appreciated : )


Powerful Assurance

September 10, 2011

There are few things more awesome and peaceful then a beautiful sunrise. Besides the beautiful sight we see, it often brings a faithful optimism about what the coming day may bring.

 The great thing about this is that we know without a doubt that the sun will rise each day. There are some days where we don’t see the sunrise. That’s because there are days where the clouds and rain cover it. However, even if there are several stormy days in a row, we are assured that we will see another beautiful sunrise soon.

We need to have the same assurance that we will experience beautiful blessings and success in our daily lives as well. What is it you want to achieve? What type of impacts do you want to make? Who is the wonderful person you want to be? The goal is to know, as sure as the sun rises every day, that you can realize your dreams. Pray regularly. Develop the necessary faith by seeing success in your mind and doing what you are inspired to do. Yes, there are days when clouds of doubt rain on your thoughts of hope. However, with the same assurance that the sun will soon rise again, believe that your dreams will be realized, and success will be yours.

God’s promises never fail. Just as He promises a new day every 24 hours, He promises that He will be with us always. We have no need to fear. Instead, believe wholeheartedly that He will work with us to bring us a life filled with sunshine. Enjoy the beautiful day : )
