The Challenge In Spending Time Well

Some activities pay huge dividends and insane gains, but don't feel satisfying. The flipside is that some activities feel incredibly satisfying, but pay no gains at all.

Take cleaning the house. If you clean the hell out of your house, you're going to likely feel great. You work up a little sweat, use your muscles, and you can get into the zone for four or five hours. Afterwards, you feel you really accomplished something.

But… even in the very most expensive countries, a solid cleaning can be purchased for $50. If you've got any skills and hustle at all, you could make more than that in four or five hours, and probably build up some long-term asset value or connections in the process.

Yet, after a good thorough clean, you'll typically feel great.

Whereas "sitting there frustrated and confused trying to figure something out" is typically not enjoyable at all. Yet, frequently six hours of sitting there frustrating and going over the same problem over and over again will lead to major breakthroughs.

His Success: Greater, Smarter, More Powerful

On A Day In The Knowledge from Above

"When God created the universe, He had no resources to make it. So, he created them (the resources)" -Dad

When I heard him say this, I said to him, "Out of all the quotes I've ever heard and read, this one is my favorite". And it's true. I thought it was gold. I just love how true and powerful and transparent to God's representation it is.

Right now, I've been going through several tribulations. One of them is financing school. I have very few resources to go to school, and it's a bit hard for me to attend school right now, even though I want to earn my Biology degree. And I spoke to my dad about this. And I thought of a story to write. About His successes. I think, oftentimes, when we accomplish something, we think it's us that's accomplished them, but it's not. It's God's accomplishments. In a sense, I guess you could say He vicariously lives through us. We often say, "Oh, we accomplished this". And we could say, "We accomplished this [through His grace]". I've said this before but it didn't really hit me until today that it is actually God's accomplishment. Not mine. Ever. In nothing. Yes, it looks like I've succeeded but I haven't. He has. Through me. And I just thought about how God is victorious. And that's why I want to write a story about His successes, because it shocked me to see that He is always victorious. I knew that already, but it hit me for sure today. It was mind blowing.

"Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place." -2 Corinthians 2:14

There are more quotes about this subject but I thought this was the one that captured what I just wrote about. If you're interested in reading more, check this out: http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Victory-in-Christ/
