Winning At Life

In whatever manner we consistently spend our time, talents, and resources will be how we will also ~ in turn ~ receive. As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.

Genuine Committment

As we look into the Creator's Wonderful Book of Life and Love ~ in Chapter Thirteen of the New Testament Book of Hebrews, we see that we are not to forget:
to show hospitality ~ even to strangers. In addition we find this admonition:

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said,

“I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.”


So we can say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper,
so I will have no fear
.
What can mere people do to me?

Stand Up To Opposition

In our Creator's Wonderful Book of Life and Love ~ in the First Chapter of the New Testament Book of James, the following is revealed:

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask Him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

So ~ do not hesitate to solicit the help of Almighty God for spiritual illumination and enlightenment.

Your Struggle May Help Develop Your Strength

There may have been times that you were exposed to public ridicule. Perhaps you were subjected to physical abuse and were beaten.

Possibly you even helped others who were going through the same things. Perhaps all you owned was taken away from you. You accepted it ~ knowing there were better things waiting for you that will last forever.

So ~ at this point in your life ~do not throw away this confident trust. Remember the great reward it brings. PATIENT ENDURANCE IS WHAT YOU NEED ~ so that ~ you will continue to do the right thing. Then you will receive what has been promised to you.

Be Disciplined And Consistent To Give Generously

In the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 6 and Verse 38 ~ we are told:

"Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full ~ pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."

Not just your resources ~ but be willing to give of your time to help others. After giving (sowing) comes the harvest (reaping).

Galatians 6:9 gives this advice: Let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

Winning at Life is not just about winning for ourselves though is it, we must win for God, and for others too, only then will we win fully at life.

We win by loving.

I enjoyed this post Helen, yes, we should never give up!

Spirited, we win in life by living a God directed life. We win in life by being the Hands and Feet of Jesus.

Thanks Helen for the loving message. It all amounts to our attitude to life - when we choose the right objective we get rewarded abundantly but we get carried with wealth as the success denominator in life. It is more how we are useful to society at large and play our part as co-creators - siva
