“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says…the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.”- (James 1:22, 25 NIV)
Approach every day as though it were the only day you have to achieve your goals and be a winner. In reality, that is true. Yesterday is gone forever, and tomorrow isn’t here yet. Nevertheless, yesterday is the foundation you’re building today on, and today is the foundation for tomorrow. Too soon, today will be gone and you will be faced with tomorrow. What you do right now sets the stage for your future, for achievement or failure. Choose to be a winner.
We hear a great deal today about stress and how to handle it. Our society seems to be plagued with stress, which manifests in confusion, frustration, anxiety, fear, etc. Let me give you valuable keys to stress management. Put God first, plan each day wisely, schedule your time, write things down, stick to your goals, and avoid delay. This will enable you to eliminate a great amount of stress.
God wants His saints to reflect joy and walk in victory. He doesn’t want them stressed out under their circumstances. Remember, others are watching you. The world needs to see a different kind of person—an optimist instead of a pessimist, a winner not a loser, an overcomer rather than an underachiever. That kind of person just might have the opportunity to lead others to Christ. Will you be that person?
