Your Morning Cup of Inspiration

Recently, I listened to a sermon in which the pastor referred to the T.H.I.N.K. acronym as a way to guide how we speak to other people.  THINK is a wonderful acronym.  It truly is a simple but powerful way to improve our communication skills and your relationships with other people.

Life is hard.  And it is hard for everyone.  No one goes through life without difficulty.  Some of those difficulties we bring on ourselves.  Others are inflicted on us.  And yet, some people go through life being bitter while others go through life feeling blessed.

That is why some people struggle on those…

We all, on occasion, have to make tough choices in life.  We may have to choose whether to stay in a relationship.  Or we may have to choose whether to relocate or change our job.  Whenever we make such choices, not only do we have to think about ourselves, but we also have to consider…
