Faith connects our weakness to God’s strength.

I borrowed this from Our Daily Bread Devotional Readings. I wanted to share this, I hope you like it!
The Ironman Triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run. It is not an easy feat for anyone to accomplish. But Dick Hoyt participated in the race and completed it with his physically disabled son Rick. When Dick swam, he pulled Rick in a small boat. When Dick cycled, Rick was in a seat-pod on the bike. When Dick ran, he pushed Rick along in a wheelchair. Rick was dependent on his dad in order to finish the race. He couldn’t do it without him. We see a parallel between their story and our own Christian life. Just as Rick was dependent on his dad, we are dependent on Christ to complete our Christian race. As we strive to live a God-pleasing life, we realize that in spite of our best intentions and determination, we often stumble and fall short. By our strength alone, it is impossible.

Quote Corner: Leadership

Here are some quotes for you. Take charge and be the leader that God has called you to be!
Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Harold R. McAlindon
(also attributed to Emerson and others)
Leadership: The art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. Dwight D. Eisenhower
There go the people.
I must follow them for I am their leader.
Alexandre Ledru-Rollin

Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves.
Lao Tzu

What does it mean to be humble?

Hello World! I have been away from blogging for a whole month. I had one month of writers block. I guess I was going through some things and just did not have the creativity needed to write. Well I am back and I am ready and do I have some things for you! I hope that what I write today can be the thing someone prayed about, or encouragement for your soul! So please read on and be blessed!


"In reality there is perhaps not one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will every now and then peep out and show itself...For even if I could conceive that I had completely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility." - Benjamin Franklin


Today I read Philippians 2: 1-11. These scriptures speak on being humble. I looked up the word humble from dictionary.com and this is one of the definitions that I received: notproudorarrogant;modest:tobehumblealthoug…
