By Charles Towne
Do I ever ask myself, what might be?
If I ask myself The following questions each day and answer them honestly It will inspire me and help me to reach my God-given potential.
(Please realize these questions are for personal reflection only, therefore the answers are personal as well and are simply intended to cause us to think and perhaps in the thinking to stimulate us to grow into our pre-ordained potential.)
#! Am I content with the direction my life is taking me today?
#2 Am I content with my character growth… today?
#3 Am I growing, or am I just standing still, marking time… or marching in place and going nowhere?
#4 If I remain where I am today, am I going to be fulfilled tomorrow?
#5 What needs to happen in my life to give me a definite sense of fulfillment in the future?
#6 What are the defining issues in my life today that determine whether I am going to possess a sense of genuine well being and accomplishment of a life well lived tomorrow?
#7 Am I a dreamer, an imaginer?
#8 Do I think outside of the box?
#9 Do I visualize my dreams as being in the realm of reality, of possibility?
#10 Am I really living, or am I just existing?
#11 Do I really care for others, or am I self-absorbed?
#12 Do others believe that I really care?
#13 Do I love my life?
(If I answered no to that one perhaps I need an attitude adjustment.)
#14 Am I striving to improve myself daily?
#15 Do I associate with people that inspire me to be better than I am?
#16 Is the world a better place because of my having been here?
#17 Am I a good listener?
#18 Do I always strive to do the right thing?
#!9 Do I always strive to do the right thing, today?
#20 Am I enjoying my life?
#21 Am I content with my spiritual condition?
#22 Have I set realistic goals for my life?
#23 Do I strive to reach my goals on a daily basis?
#24 Once I have realized the goals I have set for myself are they going to benefit others as well as myself?
#25 If the goals that I have set for myself are not going to benefit others can I rewrite those goals so they do in fact benefit others?
Are my associates, my friends, helping me to reach my God-given potential or are they keeping me from reaching that lofty goal?
#27 And the last question which should perhaps be the first is this, do I have a living, breathing, vibrant, relationship with Papa God, TODAY?
Dear Father, please help me to serve rather than be served. Help me to build up rather than tear down. Help me to be a peacemaker instead of a dissenter. Thank you for first loving me Papa God. In Jesus’ most blessed name I ask this, Amen
Trust God, and make a difference, today
