Start Dreaming Big Dreams

an article from Bo Sanchez

We need to encourage people, “Dream big dreams because God is a big God.”

Massive dreams are better than mini dreams.

Have ambition!

I know religious people don’t like the word “ambition”. Because they connect ambition to “greedy” and “selfish” and “corrupt”.

But I’m using the good version of ambition: When you dream big because you love big.

Remember, when a person doesn’t wake up in the morning with a dream, his one foot is already in the grave. He is a zombie. He is ready to die.

Let me shock you. Mother Theresa was ambitious. She dreamt of feeding hundreds of thousands of hungry people—today, she has the largest Catholic female congregation in the world—4500 nuns in 133 countries.

Mother Angelica of EWTN was ambitious too.

Envision Your Future

An Article from Bo Sanchez

 

If you want to be successful, you need to learn to see a vision and plan accordingly. Proverbs says, Plan carefully and you will have plenty; if you act too quickly, you will never have enough.(Proverbs 21:5 GNT)

Successful people plan ahead for the coming winter. Proverbs says, Lazy people should learn a lesson from the way ants live. They have no leader, chief, or ruler, but they store up their food during the summer, getting ready for winter. (Proverbs 6:6-8 GNT)

When God Takes Something Away

I found this picture posted by a friend in Facebook, and I thought of keeping it here in my Notepad, so when God takes something away from me, instead of wailing and thinking about my loss over and over and over again (this is a weakness I find so hard to change- the incapability to move on quickly) I can remind myself of the following:

  1. Trust God,  have FAITH, let go. 
  2. God has a BETTER BLESSING in store for you (a blessing that could only come once you’ve learned to let go of whatever it was that you’ve lost).
  3. God knows best. (Anything he takes away from you is either no longer good for you or is hindering you to grow.)

Declaration of Blessing

(from the book I DECLARE by Joel Osteen)

I declare I walk in the blessing of almighty God. I declare I am filled with wisdom, I make good choices, I have a clear direction.

I declare my family and I are blessed with creativity, with good ideas, woth courage, with strength, with ability.

I declare I am blessed with good health, a good family, good friends and a long life.

I declare I am blessed with promotion, with success, with an obedient heart and with a positive outlook.

I declare whatever I put my hands into will prosper and succeed. I am blessed in the cityand blessed in the field. I am blessed when I go in and when I go out.

I declare I will lend and not borrow. I will be above and not beneath.

I declare the negative things that have been in my family even for generations will no longer have any effect on us and the generations after.

I declare right now that every negative word, every curse that has ever been spoken over me and my family is broken in the name of Jesus.

I declare that from this day forward, I will experience a new sense of freedom, a new happiness and a new fulfillment.

I declare I am blessed, In Jesus name, amen.

6 Recommendations For A Blessed Family Life

(Taken from the article “My One Advice For A Fantastic Life: Be Kind” by Bo Sanchez)

I have 6 big recommendations for you.  If you do these simple habits, your family life will be healed and blessed.

  1. To Children: Say, “I love you” to your parents at least once a day.
  2. To Adult Children: Date your parents at least once a week; just so you can talk and laugh and be together.
  3. To Parents: Hug your kids at least twice each day—once before they leave the house (to fill their love tank before they conquer the world) and once when they arrive home (to heal their battle wounds).
  4. To Parents: Pray over your kids once each day.  Place your hands over their heads and declare God’s blessing to them.
  5. To Married Couples: Praise your spouse at least 3 times a day.  Never take each other for granted.  You need to appreciate your spouse daily!
  6. To Married Couples: Have a romantic date once a week.  It doesn’t have to be expensive. A simple snack or desert will do. As long as you can chat and hold hands again.

Show kindness everyday.

We have the power to unlock these blessings. How? Let me share with you 4 strategies (I learned these both from Joel and Bo).
