Amazing how a little stink'n think'n (thanks Zig) can ruin your day. If you've made a choice to be unhappy. If you've made the choice to have a bad attitude...
Then you can make another choice to do something about it.

An Ordinary Guy

Everyday, God uses me to touch the live of someone. Most days, I never even know who that is. As my faith grows, I continue to open my heart to others. Never knowing when God is going to use me to touch their lives. I've found that only when I am focused on God (and not me) that I get used the most. How tough it is to set aside my needs (and desires) to let God use me. This is a on going struggle for me everyday. Then again, if I didn't struggle to serve, my heart and faith wouldn't grow beyond my limitations. Only God can challenge me to grow more than I can imagine.
Thanks to my favorite little sister for sending me the story today. Even though she is younger, she still teaches her older brother something new. I Love You!

Good Friday Evening

The sun is setting here in Dallas.
Good Friday...
In my minds eye I try to picture the three crosses on top of the hill. I try to picture that sunset over 2000 years ago. The magnificent colors. I can only imagine the sound of Mary, crying. The way only a mother can cry at the loss of a child. The very sound piercing my soul at the core.
There is no way possible for me to feel what it must have been like. The sounds, the site of it all, the smell. Some two thousand years ago.
Just like I can't imagine what heaven will be like or how much love a God who sent his son to take my place must have. I can't imagine that Friday.
Thankfully, I don't have to imagine...
The rest of the story.
I've read the last chapter, the last page and the last word...
I look forward to hearing those words Sunday morning, at God's house.
How I treasure Easter Sunday in my heart.
Have a wonderful Easter. Celebrate the holiday by inspiring others around you.
God Bless,
Tim

Good Friday!

Easter is only a few days away.
Today, I realized that I've been a little behind in my writing. From Spring break to work, I've been a little short of time for the things I love to do.
Today's inspirational story is a favorite of mine (great to have your own list some days ) for a long time. Always fun to share the classics with each other.
I hope that your Easter is a time of reflection, a inspirational time for you in your faith and most of all a time for you to draw closer to God.
Your Daily Inspirational Friend,
Tim

I hope that you will keep your focus on God as we approach Easter.
Have a inspirational day,
Tim

Clean Up Your Life!

How many times have you cleaned your house for company?
You'd probably be surprised at how much time you spend cleaning up. From 5 minutes a day to an hour. After a week, a month or a year how much time would that be?
5 minutes a day, is 35 minutes a week, is 2 hours 25 minutes a month or almost 25 hours a year.
It gets worse...
An hour a day is 365 hours a year. Almost 2 and a half months of work!
Just to keep the house clean. Of course if you are a bachelor, like me, 5 minutes a year is all.
Now think about how much time you spend a day making your life better. How much time you spend reading your Bible, praying and helping others. 5 minutes a day could change your life. 5 minutes a day could change someone else's life. Think about it...
Do you have 25 hours a year to give to God?
I know he has 8,736 hours a year for you. Or perhaps all the time in the world...
Have a great day. Spend the next 5 minutes wisely!

Smiles

The most important thing to remember in life, be sure to laugh. I am just back from a long trip. In those last few hours before getting home, sleep has been in short supply and patience was at a premium. In those hours, I realize that only God can fill my heart with grace, love and understanding.
I am so thankful for the smiles and patience God gives me. I hope today's story put a smile on your face. A smile that lets others know, God lives in your heart.
Have a great day by inspiring someone else.
