Does Toxic Positivity Exist?

I’ve been told on two occasions that it was toxic for me to encourage people to be positive. One person even unfollowed me on Twitter for this. My question is, what is so toxic about having a positive outlook on life? With this being said, I’m not suggesting we should be positive all of the …

Execution

It does not matter how my affirmations and biblical scriptures you quote, if we do not physically work on facing your challenges, it will be highly unlikely that we will be successful in facing it.

The Revelation Begins

David Christian was confused by the events that were now unfolding around him. He looked up at the sky and noticed that the moon was a sphere of blood. The stars were gone, even though the sky was clear. David stood behind a crowd of over one hundred people. They were there to listen to …

Good Works

In Colossians 3:23-24, it says that “whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” We can be fooled into believing that once we get a job, we have to work hard …

If we are not passionate about what we are doing, like a job that we hate, we should give it up and pursue something more worthwhile — something that will ignite our passion. In order to activate this wonderful emotion, we first …

Get Back on Track

I apologize for the long absence. I have been working on my new book, and I do work long hours during the week. However, that is not an excuse to be slacking on my blog page. The truth is that I’ve simply been lazy. I’m thinking about a theme that would motivate me to post …
