Have you ever thought of yourself as an influencer or someone who has been given influence over other people? Whether you realize it or not you are an INFLUENCER!!
My wife, Kaye is a counselor and she is very good at it. She tells people she is working with that there are two clubs you can join and become members of. Now people are looking for some club to join all the time. Maybe a church, Lions Club, Rotary Club or any other club that meets their fancy.
The two clubs my wife talks about is:
1. THE DUMB CLUB
2. THE SMART CLUB
Now the question we all have to ask ourselves is this; which club do I belong to and serve in? You see when a person comes to the knowledge and relationship with God, they receive TWO THINGS:
1. THE PERSON OF GOD
2. THE PRINCIPLES OF GOD
With the PERSON OF GOD, you get the PEACE OF GOD. However with the PRINCIPLES OF GOD you get the PROSPERITY OF GOD. By this, I mean you begin to learn the principles that God set down in His Word. As you study and learn these truths you receive the WISDON OF GOD. The Wisdom of God will bring you into prosperity in all areas of your life. Your finances, your health, your relationships, your goals, and dreams.
Now back to the TWO CLUBS. In the SMART CLUB you learn the wisdom of God by reading and studying God’s Word and APPLYING IT TO YOUR LIFE.
In the DUMB CLUB you repeat the same mistakes over and over. You never read or study the OWNERS MANUAL FOR LIFE and you keep making the same mistakes again and again. That is the DUMB CLUB.
So I ask you again, WHAT CLUB DO YOU WANT TO JOIN? You get to make the choice, but alike with all choices, you must then live with the results of that choice. Why don’t you join the SMART CLUB and begin a journey that will take you higher than you ever thought possible.
JOIN THE SMART CLUB!!!!
Happiness is feeling good about yourself. Don’t confuse popularity, which simply means having others feel good about you. You must have a good self-image about yourself. FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF. If you don’t, find out why!
Life is not a schedule of DEFEATS, but a parade of MIRACLES. Life was never meant to be an endurance of trials, but an enjoyment of TRIUMPHS. The problem is WE are the ones who have to decide how we are going to feel about ourselves. We have to discipline ourselves to constantly choose to SAY good things about ourselves and take the ACTION TO FOLLOW UP WITH WHAT WE SAY.
Too many people are looking to someone else to bring their HAPPINESS TO THEM. YOU DECIDE, YOU MAKE THE CHOICE.
Henry Ward Beecher said, “Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of ANXIETY or the handle of FAITH. Great question to ask ourselves is, which handle do we use to take ahold of life? Do we live our life full of ANXIETY or do we live life full of FAITH. I want to live my life by faith, I want t believe that I was created for something more than just to exist. I believe you have a purpose in life, but many times ANXIETY will crowd out the faith by which we are created to live. When we finally get ahold of the reason why we were created, we really begin to live. WE COME ALIVE!
Two most important day’s in a person’s life is the day they were born and the day they find out why they were born. that is when life takes on purpose and we begin to find out what life is all about. St Augustine said, “Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.” When you wake up in the morning, do you take the handle of ANXIETY OR FAITH? IT’S YOUR CHOICE.
