Do you ever look around at others and think, they’re all moving forward/gaining experience much quicker than you?

Don’t be afraid of growing slowly; only be afraid of standing still.

So even if life seems to be moving slower for you than everyone around you, it doesn’t matter, as long as you are still moving forward.

I’ve said many times before in my blog that life can be so tough at times. I make no apology for repeating myself again today, as I feel it’s very important to remind ourselves frequently that it’s ok to find life tough.

Tough times never last. Tough people do ~ Robert H. Schuller

It’s true you know, although sometimes it may feel as though the tough times are unending, things will get better. Tough times call for tough people, and so as the above saying states, tough people do survive tough times…but let me put it another way for you…

It’s not tough people who survive tough times, it’s the people who have put their full trust in God to help them through tough times.

So I’d urge you if you haven’t accepted Christ as your Saviour, give your heart to Him today, because when tough times hit, He has promised to be there for you, and will help you survive those tough days.

A little while ago, someone  told I didn’t show respect to someone. What that person seemed to forget is that respect is not something that can automatically be acquired, it’s something you must earn!

I was not aware of having said or done anything wrong, and was deeply hurt and upset, to be accused of being disrespectful to someone simply because I showed concern for one of my family member. To me that is disrespectful, not taking a phone call from a family member who was attending the hospital!

Anyway, rant over, now to consider the whole issue of respect!

So what is respect?

  • to have an attitude of esteem towards; show or have respect for to respect one’s elders;
  • to pay proper attention to;
  • to show consideration for; treat courteously or kindly;
It’s all well and good to say you pay proper attention to someone, but that is really only part of the story isn’t it! Respect is a two-way thing, after all, how can you respect someone if they show no regard for you or your family and friends? If someone shows no compassion or concern for you or the things that are important to you, it makes it very difficult for you to respect them.
Respect is something I guess we all want from others, so to enable that to happen, make sure you show compassion, care and concern for your fellow human beings. Then and only then are others likely to show you respect!

What sort of answers did you think I was expecting/looking for by the title of this post?

Your name?
What sort of music you like?
What TV programmes you watch?
What you do in your spare time?

Well to tell you the truth, none of the above! I was wondering what makes you tick, what’s your motivation in life?


So what’s my answer to these questions? My answer is Jesus! I’m living my life for Jesus. I’m trying to do all he asks of me and do my best to spend the wonderful message of God’s love to all the world.

Find out who you are today and help me today to tell the world of God’s love.
