Praying that God will lend me strength

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:06 pm by Dan Barnett

Please pray for me.  I test Saturday morning for the Cary PD.  I humbly share that I am unable to lift the minimum bench press amount at the moment.  Please pray that this wuss is given some strength for one push on Saturday.  I’ve just started reading a summary of Og Mandino’s “A Better Way to Live: 17 Rules to Live By.”  Rules 5 and 10 are my favorite.

Rule #5(my claim this week):

Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you are a creature of God and have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider yourself defeat again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life’s blueprint. Smile!

 

Rule #10:

Beginning today treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
