Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Trusting in Faith!

Have you ever had one of those days when nothing seems to go right?  The kids skip school;  the dog ran away;  and your car won't start for work!  Fortunately for me my kids are grown and gone out of the house.  I don't own a dog.  And my work consist of building this ministry, which I primarily do from home!  But I do remember well many days like those!  Life is kinda funny though sometimes.  Because it never really gives you any true rest.  Old concerns are replaced with new ones.  And new problems always seem to have a funny way of taking on their own life form.  Some days I struggle just to get out of bed.  And then spend have the morning wondering why?  By then I'm behind the clock, so I start to wonder what I should be doing productive for the day.  That's when I realize half the day is over!  So then I sit around and try to get back ahead of the lapse by figuring out what I'm going to do for the second half of the day.  Because half a day well spent is better then a day not spent at all.  Purpose in life is key to success!  But success is often times not measured in terms of achievement, believe it or not!  Because allot of people really don't understand the true meaning of success.  They're often times too busy trying to have it all!  So they never really have an opportunity to know how good it feels.  Truly successful people will tell you they have nothing but time on their hands.  And the real trick is how you manage it!  Unlike what most people like to think, success is really just peace of mind!  It's not having to worry about the everyday trivialities of existence.   And having a firm grasp of how you choose to exist.   I like to keep my success simple.   It makes it easy to keep a track of.  I try to do something kind everyday.  That way it just becomes part of my natural character;  and I don't have to think about it.   I always try to put my best foot forward whenever possible too.  Because the truth is first impressions really do matter.  And if you can make them twice all the better.   It helps let people know that they matter to you.  And the caveat is, with hope and faith, you'll begin to matter to them as well.  Which really makes for a perfect day.  No matter what side of the bed you get up on!  If I can get in a good prayer, then I know I've had a perfect day.  Because I know in faith God will take care of the rest.  So by that standard I like to think I'm pretty successful.  Because it only takes a minute to Pray!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante
