PROVERBS 4:7-9 The beginning of wisdom is:  Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding. Prize her, and she will exalt you; She will honour you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a garland of grace; She will present you with a crown of beauty. The greatest knowledge you can acquire, is knowledge of yourself.  Self-knowledge or self-awareness, is the beginning of all wisdom.  When you understand why you think the way that you do, why you talk the way that you ...

Find your family-balance with NO stress

by Lene Korsaasen Relationships, Home Improvement, Self Improvement, Home and Family, Kids and Teens
Can you relate to this? Early mornings, everybody hurry to get to work, kindergarten and school. In the afternoon everybody comes home exhausted, and used all their energy at a demanding job, not leaving much energy for kids and spouse, and then you must get ready for spare-time activities, sports etc. In the evening when the kids have gone to bed, you tumble down in front of the TV... and oh yeah!! Then there were the dishes, the cleaning, the laundry and.... One ...

MATTHEW 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. One of the main reasons that God has placed us on this planet, is to bless each other with what He has blessed us with individually.  We all have a special talent or gift.  The purpose is to bring it out of ourselves, fine-tune it, ...

HEBREWS 10:24-25 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. The main reason for me going through my most recent challenge, was the fact that I had isolated myself.  I wasn't spending time with the right people, or people in general, and this led me to seeing my situation ...

MARK 11:25-26 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven, may forgive you your trespasses.  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father, which is in heaven, forgive your trespasses. We need to forgive those who have done us wrong.  Now for most us, this is contrary to what we may feel at the time.  Our first reaction, is to seek some sort of revenge on those that ...

LUKE 12:22-26 Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.  Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.  Consider the ravens:  They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them.  And how much more valuable you are than birds!  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his ...

MATTHEW 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.  Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. God's message to us here, is that He has given us the grace to get through this day, the day that we are in.  Tomorrow is another day, and will come with it's own situations for us to deal with.  Therefore, God wants us to focus on today and what is right in front ...

MATTHEW 9:27-29 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, "Thou Son of David, have mercy on us" And when he went into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, "Believe ye that I am able to do this"?  They said unto him, "Yea, Lord". Then touched he their eyes, saying, "According to your faith, be it unto you". This is such a powerful message to us all.  What Jesus is saying to ...

ROMANS 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. In a discussion I had with a friend of mine a few months ago, he said that we are living in critical times.  He said that, with reference to all the negative that is happening on our beautiful planet at the moment.  At the time, I thought that what he ...

I Wanna Know What Love Is

by Nick Struan Relationships, Self Improvement, Home and Family, Kids and Teens
Do you feel loved?  I know I questioned that many times in my life and still do.   What is love really?  A feeling, a commitment or a dependency? Have you ever stopped to think what love really is and how it works? Yes, maybe you have and if you have I really congratulate you. Most of us don't ever feel really loved deep inside. I'm sure if we went and died a few people would start questioning our whereabouts or blame ...

For Sleep-Deprived Mothers, These Energy Hacks Work Like Crazy!

by Jeri-Lee Svenson Self Improvement, Home and Family, Kids and Teens
Having just celebrated our youngest 3rd birthday, I quietly acknowledged the end of an era of sleepless nights. If you are a new mum (or not-so-new mum with toddlers) you will undoubtedly experience endless nights of disturbed sleep that feel a little bit like torture. Being of service 24/7 to little ones, you need to tap into energy reserves from sources other than your night’s rest. Here are some energy hacks I have used to keep me going over the ...

Do Not Miss The Party!

by Mark Dwyer Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Finance, Investing, Communications, Home and Family, Kids and Teens
I've missed many a party over the years through working late or working weekends. I used to work on my birthday even if it landed on a Saturday.  My employers wouldn't give me the day off as my birthday always fell on the busiest sales week of the summer.  I also needed to be in the store on those days to boost my commission in order to pay the bills. So what a breath of fresh air it has been this year, working from ...

MY BIGGEST PASSION I've been going through a challenging time recently, which I realise has been a battle in my mind.  I've decided that I am going to 'grow through it' rather than to just 'go through it' and I have a renewed strength. As a result of a meeting with a pastor, I realised that I must follow my heart and pursue a vocation involving my biggest passion which is sport, and in particular, football.  I have absolutely loved sport since I was ...

PRAYER In light of the hurricane sweeping across the state of Texas in the USA, I want to pay respect to all those affected.  The forces of nature are causing death and destruction, which must be horrifying for those directly affected. I pray that you will exercise your inner strengths to get through the situation as well as possible.  That you will help others in need, in whatever way you can.  That you will receive all the help that you need, when ...

WHERE DO YOU LIVE? Earlier today, I was in a place called Halmstad in Sweden.  Halmstad is a quiet, medium-sized town on the south west coast of Sweden.  I was on my way to the train station, when I heard incredible noise coming from the sky. I caught a glimpse of a jet, which must have been doing some sort of a display nearby.  The noise coming from the jet, was incredibly loud, and I thought to myself "what must it be ...

He's not Deadbeat...he's just Dead

by Kai Gordon Self Improvement, Home and Family, Kids and Teens
Okay people, so this has been on my mind for a while. I've been thinking about sharing my story- the real, emotional, gritty one, instead of the sugar-coated version. I'm not much of a 'tell all my feelings' kind of person but I'd like to think this could help someone going through something similar. #The Dream I'd always done well academically and I was the first in my family to receive a Higher Education. I went to a pretty good university and ...

DO YOU WALK WITH GOD? Yesterday, I had the privilege of watching a sermon by Dr Chales F Stanley, founder and president of In Touch Ministries.  He explained what it means to walk with God.  I found it very helpful, so I want to share it with you. 1.  Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour - Make a declaration and a commitment 2.  Listen to God - Listen to the still, quiet inner voice 3.  Trust God - Completely 4.  Agree with God ...
