So i was going through my blog subscriptions as usual and I came across majorsteps' update on being useful...I thought I'd share it....why not!!
Hope u r inspired coz I am...
"Be Useful to someone esp. when you have nothing to do...try and be a blessing unto someone because at almost every point in your life, you are a solution to someone's problem...Unless you find the reason you were put here on earth, you cannot live a purposeful life. Identify what you can do to help people in all situations... E.g.You know you may be a kettle but unless you boil water, you are useless(not serving your purpose)....what is it you think you are supposed to be doing here on earth? identify what it is....Usually, the answer is in things you do that you do not mind not being paid for and serve others in that area...You are guaranteed more fulfillment and happiness that way than any other way you choose to live your life...if you doubt this, try and find your purpose and see if you do not feel fulfilled and validated....I DARE YOU!!!!! "

Got a call back & b4 i knew it, i had done a phone interview & just finished a face-to-face interview last friday. Still waiting 4 da final response. Although certain things seem a bit blurry, I know that through it all God is my Guide
And here is where Zechariah 4:6 applies...dat through it all, it's never been by my strength nor by my power but by the spirit of the Lord that is able to sustain.
I am grateful dat these past few weeks God has been my help in every thing...He is always behind the scenes working even when I forget to acknowledge His presence at times..
Watched the news last time about the situation in eastern Africa....makes me think how can some people have so much and others so little that they can do nothing but constantly wait in hopes of help from.........only God knows where...
Was just thinking of ways to earn some money this summer and my sister and I decided that we will establish a business...lol (that's what we say every summer)...But anyway this video talks about "how to manage your money" so as to not end up establishing a business "with your mouth" each time you go broke like myself and my sister (http://texttextiles.blogspot.com/) lol...
