Carpe “ME” um……

Not many self help books revolutionize your thinking like the Bible. If we looked at the bible as we look at self help books and not a history book, it’s pages become alive and the inspiration that fills this record, fills you!!
You look at wisdom differently. Finances differently, relationships, finding a mate, finding your purpose, finding Gods voice, oh yes, it’s in there. God cares much about you, not so you can be only be rich, He cares most for your soul. Period, the end game of this life is to be with Jesus in heaven. He leaves us His letter (the bible) in the hope that at the end of our appointed time we find Him.

Do we find him? Or should I ask , do we look for him?  There Is a Greek phrase that has been quoted over many generations, carpe’ diem when translated it means “to seize the day.” To be proactive and control your day by not allowing the day to control you!  To quote a familiar phrase; “Live FULL and Die EMPTY.”  It means to be purpose-full.  It is too easy to be  into the regular day to day operations of what your tasks are that you can forget what pulled you to run the ministry or business in the first place.  If your ever stuck here’s a couple  “hacks” that have helped us out.

1. Recognize that you need to go to the manufacturer.    Suppose  your vehicle had an issue that was vital to its serviceability?  I know for me I would take it back to the dealer in hopes the manufacturer would correct it.  Life can be like that, this is where we must go to our manufacturer regularly to ensure we are living lives that are at peak LEVEL rather than weak LEVEL. Allow the Lord to seize your life’s direction and watch the adventure unfold.  It’s only scary if your not in communication with God through prayer.

2.  Commit to solution, reject pollution!  When the solution is found commit to only  thinking about the solution of the matter, everything contrary is irrelevant.  Haters will hate, that is their nature.  COMMIT TO SOLUTION!!!!

I hope these words have encouraged you. Maybe you could share this with a friend or even mention what you found to others. Listen, We are Praying for you! Have a blessed day!!


I was a young man who worked for a great organization "Forged by the Sea." Now I'm an old head kicking back on the east side; where the sun doesn't set. I'm a man who is pursuing his contributions to the world. I'm not perfect. In fact, a work in progress until Jesus takes me home. Philippians 1:6
