Matt 11:28: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Christ is the giver of rest: physical rest, mental rest and most of all spiritual rest because when we trust Him, we can rest before God the Father clothed in Christ’s righteousness

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Lately I’ve been trying to focus on my mental strength. There’s a difference between your body giving up and your mind giving up. Push yourself, learn the difference. This applies to not only our exercising, but to our daily lives. Its much easier to give up than it is to focus and push through a difficult situation. Work on your mental strength, push yourself.

“When someone tells me no, it doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it simply means I can’t do it with them.”

“Always be yourself and have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and try to duplicate it.”

“We love being mentally strong, but we hate situations that allow us to put our mental strength to good use.”

“Attitude is 100% under your control.”

“If your mindset is defeated, the results will be the same no matter how often you put up a physical fight.”

Six Ethics of Life

  • Before you Pray – Believe

It means not lose sight of the true meaning of worship and prayer.  To many people treat church as a form of entertainment not a means to improve one’s faith and relationship with God.

  • Before you Speak – Listen

To me it is especially important to listen, especially when the conversation is confrontational.  Try to listen to the issue before allowing emotion to take over.

  • Before you Spend – Earn

Avoid burdensome dept or burrowing from others if possible. For me this is not leaving beyond your means.

  • Before you Write – Think

Never write anything you wouldn’t want your mother to read.  Be careful with what you say on social media. Things never go away.

  • Before you Quit – Try

I think we have all got this one.  We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t.

  • Before you Die – Live

Don’t forget to spend time with your friends, family, take time to doing things you enjoy!
