Greatness is not found in possessions,

     power, position, or prestige.
It is discovered in goodness,
      humility, service, and character.

and whoever would be first among you must be your slave;
even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many.

           Normal day,
Let me be aware of the treasure you are....
     Let me not pass you by in quest of
some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Or bury my face in a pillow,
         Or stretch myself taunt
Or raise my hands to the sky and
     want, more than all the world,
Your return.

Before you begin a thing
            remind yourself that difficulties

Form a mental vision of that and
            cling to it through thick and thin.

never perish, spoil or fade.

what others think you are.

knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance;

he begins to blame someone else.

"See, I will send my messenger,
who will prepare the way before me.’"

“My mind is a dangerous place -

     I really shouldn’t go there on my own.”

The only ones that should go in there is our Heavenly Father, and Jesus, because if it is anyone else than them, you are…. well….. double-minded!

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
     Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and
purify your hearts, you double-minded.
James 4:8
