“Scripture Verse focus vs. Setting Goals for the New Year.”

This year’s I will direct my life focus on the biblical verse, John 6:35.  This verse will give me the clarity I will need to make every day an opportunity and to spend time in the Word and listen to God and daily seek his guidance.  I have decided to use this approach this New year rather than focusing on a goal-setting process which in the past became too much about MY plans and not at all about God’s plan for me.

“Jesus declares, I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

Verse, John 6:35 teaches that spiritual nourishment comes first. That your spiritual growth is not a project, a bible study or a training seminar, but a daily practice rooted in prayer. It is not optional – but rather it is required to sustain life’s achievement.

My spiritual nourishment is more valuable than food and water. The message valued from John 6:35 is, that Christ calls us not only to “believe in him” but also to “come to him.” With this in mind, I am willing to seek Christ daily, with all of my joys, worries, questions, and requests. Not just when things get rough or when I’m expected to pray.

As a Christian, husband, father and technical entrepreneur, I experience no shortage of ideas or imagination. But when it comes to making things happen, bringing them to fruition I often fall short. I spend too much time being politically correct “the messy middle.” So am embracing the word Nourish which will give me the strength and direction I need to keep feeding my dreams, goals and to provide me with a little bit of focus every day and to sustain my life to strengthen me.

What Inspires Me “Costco”

If you are a member, like me, you are probably obsessed with Costco. In my opinion, Costco is the greatest store of all times. Having a Costco membership is like being a part of an elite group of people who enjoy being around quality products.

What is it that makes Costco such a shopping delight? Seriously, I could hang out at Costco all day. Without a doubt, I believe it’s the best store for all of your shopping needs, although my wife and kids would disagree. After much thought, I have made a list of the significant reasons why Costco is the greatest store ever.

  • The soft service is above par, and it keep you coming back again and again.
  • You can always depend on the rotisserie chicken it’s cooked to perfection.
  • Costco has everything. When I need something, going to Costco is my first thought.
  • Costco offers all kinds of things that you might not think to buy, but to me, that is awesome.
  • My family thinks I am obsessed with Costco, but I don’t believe it!

My final advice, use caution: make all your purchase count.   While you should exercise caution — there  just too much “fun” to buy there and enjoy the experience.

“One More Gift Left!”

st-jude_28258174044_oWith all the hustle and bustle of last minute holiday shopping, it can be difficult to slow down and enjoy the small joys of this special time. My most cherished holiday memories are setting up the Christmas tree, taking the kids to get pictures with Santa, and my family sitting on the couch in pajamas watching movies. The greatest gift I receive every year is simply time with my family.

This season, I’m asking you to add one more gift to your shopping list, St. Jude. Extend the holiday cheer to a family in need by donating to St. Jude children’s research hospital. In less than the time it takes to make a cup of hot cocoa, you can bring peace and goodwill to children battling cancer. With your generous donation, St. Jude can continue its mission of providing top tier research and medical care to kids at no cost to their families.  This true and thoughtful gift can bring peace of mind to a family in need. Please visit my St. Jude donor page to learn more about how to give a gift that keeps on giving.

 Wishing you and yours, a Wonderful Holiday Season.
