Something that I missed along the way

"That what you say and what you mean are the same. What you promise, you always intend to keep it. What things you say - is what exactly what you plan to do". The best definition I read so far.

This morning I learned about integrity in the life of Daniel. Daniel, which was thrown to the lion’s den because he cannot compromise God in his life showed me the true meaning of integrity.

This is a situation where I saw my self compromising and making excuses in my life. I always thought that compromising is good and everybody is doing it. But God showed me this day that life is to live with integrity. Reputation and integrity is very different. Reputation are the things that others see in your life but integrity was something deep in you. A man with integrity will always be trusted and can be successful in life because God is with him and God delights in him.

How to maintain a life of integrity

change NOW – Don’t wait for situation to get better before you change. Don’t blame others in the level of integrity you have now. It is a change inside of yourself regardless of your condition outside.

ADVANCE planning- set the things that you will not compromise with. This is helpful because when you face this kind of problem you know what things are not for you to compromise. These are the things that will make you dependable in life. You can’t become men of integrity on the spot.

DEVELOP devotional life – God should be the rule not the exception. God should be the source of our integrity. We should live according to His example. Constant communication with Him is the key for the path of integrity.

find ACCOUNTABLE friends – Friends that will ask you the hard questions. Friends that will ask you what you are doing and what you are not doing. This I will write in depth on my following blogs.

REMEMBER to focus on God and not in our circumstances – if we always look in our circumstances rather than what God is doing in our lives we will not be extraordinary. God use circumstances to develop and make us extraordinary. He is using us in His purpose in this world. Now that is worth remembering.

Godbless everyone

Joseph the Dreamer -Purpose in Life

    The Thing that really inspires me right now is like that of a Joseph the  Dreamer story. A God's message that is written in a  life of hardships and preparations. God prepare Joseph in so much way. He got hurt, sold, deserted and jailed.
    But God let all of his misfortunes be a preparation of a purpose that only Joseph can do because God is with him. Even if everyone deserted us or everyone hurt us remember that if God is with us everything has a purpose. And  I think God have that like of purpose to all who believes in Him. We should strive to walk each day of pain and sorrow with gladness in our hearts that God have wonderful plans for each of us. He alone can place us where we must be. A purpose driven life is a God centered life.

Godbless everyone

Things that inspires me right now

        I am inspired right now because God showed me my purpose. I'm always looking for my significance in life and now I found it.
     At first I try to look for material possession then success in career after that I pursue knowledge. But I felt discontented.My heart longs for something that is permanent that will eventually stop my ever wanting. But all this things are meaningless. I'm pursuing things that will eventually be corrupted, destroyed and eliminated. Wealth will perish someday regardless of how much you acquire. Work you treasure and are laboring your whole life will be replaced and shaken by others that will replace you when you retire. Persons with knowledge will not be so different with a fool when they are both dead.

God reveal to me that we must seek Him, our Creator. He who design us, mold us and continually guiding us to our purpose. We can be more effective in using things by following the manual of the one who created it. It is the same with God. We are His creation and he is our Creator. What is better to do than to do what God intended to do with us.

Now that is why I am living right now. Godbless everyone
