Hey, Did You Know? They Are Afraid...

Bullying statistics are extremely alarming! So many children are living in this world afraid. They’re afraid to go to school; afraid to be themselves; afraid to say no to the bully; afraid to confide in a responsible adult about what’s going on in their lives; afraid to stand up for themselves. So many children take their lives each day because they are afraid…AFRAID TO LIVE!

Sometimes we as adults take things for granted. Can you think back a minute to the time when you were a child? I know some of you have to think back farther than others, but, truly, life was a little easier and simpler back then. Our kids have so much at stake this day and age and some of them have no one to turn to.

Let’s take time out to pray for our children. To pray that they find the desire to pray for each other and themselves. To pray for forgiveness and healing in our children’s lives.

It takes a village to end bullying. Take your stand in prayer today! 

Why You Shouldn't Drop Raisins!

My son and I love eating raisins. They're a very tasty treat. My son is five years old and he is a busy body, like most boys his age. One day, we were eating raisins and after we were done eating, I looked down on the floor and noticed that he dropped about five raisins. As I picked them up, I said, "Boy, I can't believe you dropped all these raisins!" Then I got to thinking even more about all the opportunities we come across in life. 

Small opportunities often times grow into bigger ones. As you are building your business, it's not wise to let the small opportunities go by the waist side because you're waiting for the big ones. How do you expect God to trust you with the big stuff if He can't trust you with the small stuff? 

Do you remember that book, 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff?' Well, I do and I agree with the title. You shouldn't stress over what you can't control. Actually, God says you don't have to stress as you can cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you. So, when those small opportunities come, pray first. Ask God to put you in the right mindset of gratefulness. And believe that they're meant to thrust you into even bigger ones. Raisins are small and watermelons are big, but God created both for a purpose. They both have seeds. Sow your seeds, expect your harvest, and remember, "Don't drop the raisins!"
