Weekly Spiritual Digest: Growing in Faith


By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises.

Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.

So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

(‭2 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭3-11‬ NLT)

Provisions of moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, patient endurance, godliness, brotherly affection, and love are hard to abide by; knowing what kind of world we live in. And each day I struggle with either one of these provisions because of the “world’s corruption caused by human desires.” But understand this:

It is better to give your soul to God than to lose your soul the world.   

As it says in this verse, “God has given us everything we need to live a godly life.” And He has promised us eternal life in Heaven. So grow your faith by fulfilling these provisions. Then and only then will God recognize you as his own and give you “a grand entrance entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

LSAT CHRONICLES: Afternoon Crossword Puzzle


20130727-153858.jpg

Patience is a virtue. Like a crossword puzzle, it’s not about speed but accuracy. Satisfaction does not come from finishing a puzzle in 35MIN or less, but from completing one successfully and patiently–that’s all that counts. I managed to score 3-4pts higher than my original score. What a great satisfaction that is!

On a side note, I think I found a new cologne for myself: Mont Blanc (Exceptional). lol

What I need now is one of their signature black fountain pens. 😉

Here’s to motivation and wishful thinking!

Motivation Monday: Patience


It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of empowerment to start your week off right.

This week’s word of motivation: Patience

In this video we see Reggie Bush, the former All-star Trojan athlete, expressing his struggles as a new recruit on the New Orleans Saints football team–the difficult transition from winning college football championships to not scoring one touchdown in the pro-league.

Like Reggie Bush, we all seem to have a caliber to achieve what we want in life–whether it be graduating with a higher degree or winning trophies. However, we soon realize that we can’t predict everything, and life does happen. Even though it gets us down, it should not serve as an excuse to give up.

Be patient and continue to work hard at your goals. Let me be the first to say that I have fallen many times in my quest of obtaining a job– knowing that my caliber was a college degree. However, once I became patient with myself, and persisted throughout life’s obstacles (never giving up on my goals), I realized that I can utilize my degree and, combine it with my creativity to create something special like: Prince’s Daily Journal.

So Be Patient and Never Give Up–and you too can score a touch down!
