Attitude – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Good is the enemy of Great.

Challenge:

We often fall short of greatness because we become too comfortable with being good at many things in our lives. As you prepare for the New Year, ask God for the inspiration and the energy to break out of your comfort zone in order that you can become a better version of you. In 2020, be the best you you can be.

Reference:

Because of this, I always strive to keep my conscience clear before God and man.

Acts 24:16 (NABRE)

Hope – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Look forward with faith, not backward with regret.

Challenge:

Yesterday is gone so don’t dwell on what could have been. Instead, learn from the past and focus on making your todays and tomorrows better and more filled with faith, hope, and love with God at your side.

Reference:

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Thought:

Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does.

Be better today than you were yesterday. One of the challenges to being a better person is often in forgiving. What grudges are hardening your heart? Use Christ’s example of forgiving and forgetting each and every day in order to stay on the path that God has laid out for you.

Reference:

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

To win a race, your eyes need to be fixed on the finish line. To run the race of life, keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.

Thought:

Gladly accept the gifts of the present hour.

Challenge:

When the hustle and bustle of daily life pull you from the moment you forfeit all the happiness that you could be living in right now. Focus on living in the moment more each day.

MERRY CHRISTMAS from the TAGteam.

In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

Challenge:

During this season of joy, find time today to call a friend and spend 5-10 minutes catching up, sharing fond memories and laughing together. It will be your prescription for happiness today. Instead of thinking to yourself, "this would be a good idea", pick up your phone and start dialing.

Reference:

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”

Thought:

We tire of those pleasures we take, but never of those we give.

When was the last time you felt bad about making someone else feel good? The answer for most of us is never. So, when was the last time you made someone else feel good about themselves? Go make someone fell good today. What are you waiting for?

Reference:

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Challenge:

Fear, doubt and procrastination…Un-affectionately known as the "Unholy Trio." Where one is present, the other two are not far away. Don’t allow them to rob you of your optimism, hope and your will to succeed. Think of 3 things right now that you would do if you knew you could not fail. Ask God for the courage to take the first step.

Reference:

And Jesus answered them, truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.
