Tips For Better Living

Tips for Better Living

  • Rise and pray every day: "Again today, dear God, I commit and trust my life and way to you. I'm available. Please use me to be as Jesus to every life I touch."

     
  • "Don't sweat the small stuff."

     
  • Remember these simple sentences: "I was wrong." "I am sorry." "Please forgive me." "Thank you." Say them whenever needed and say "I love you" often—whether needed or not.

     
  • Come apart and rest a while before you come apart—stress is a killer.

     
  • Remember, "Nothing changes if nothing changes."

     
  • Don't nurse grudges: "Failing to forgive is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die."

     
  • Carpe diem. Seize the day. "Opportunity comes to pass
    —not to pause."

     
  • Quit the blame-game—"it's choice, not chance, that determines destiny."

     
  • Control your thinking or your thinking will control you. "What the mind dwells on the body acts on."

     
  • Invest your life in a worthwhile cause by having a noble purpose for which to live—a purpose that is bigger than yourself for which to live—one that will help make your world a better place in which to live.

     
  • Be a positive realist. You will always see what you are looking for: "Two men look out the same prison bars. One sees mud, the other stars."

     
  • The greatest abilities are availability, dependability and responsibility.

     
  • "There is no pillow as soft as a clear conscience."

     
  • "Smooth seas never make skillful sailors."

     
  • When God is silent. "I believe in the sun even when it isn't shining. I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when he is silent."

     
  • Cry when needed. "Every unshed tear is a prism through which all of life's hurts are distorted."

     
  • Laugh a lot. It's still the best medicine.

     
  • Remember, "The bumps are what we climb on."

     
  • Fear not. At least 95 percent of the things we fear never
    happen. Trust God for the other five percent.

     
  • Have faith and put God first with your time, talents, and tithe.


"Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun" (Psalm 37:3-6, NIV).
