Reach For The Stars!

When I look up into the sky, I often think about the unaccomplished goals that I haven't reached yet. Now 2013 is almost here and what I should do is not make the same mistakes as I  have made in previous years or my past.  Every New Year, most of us make New Years resolutions, that we never keep. But what we all should do is improve ourselves and do better. The old saying  that my late grandmother use to say, which is, "When you know better ,you should do better".( This is even some advice I should take going into 2013.) Put God first and then head of your life or home then its a guarantee to make your pathways straight. Also go to church at least once a week or twice a week, depending on your denomination. Despite what most people think, there is no religion better than the other. Serving God is not a competition and you will not get a prize for going to a certain church or for going to church more often than someone else. Its what you do after you leave church that counts. Praising God in and out of church, acting like you forgot what you learned while you were in church is living a lie. If you are going to be a christian, then be one , because most people can spot a fake or a pretender a mile away. Be yourself and never forget who you are. Never live your life trying to impress anyone or anybody. Most people tend to respect those who are real and in the world we all  live in there are too many fake people .
Be more understanding, try to learn why a person is a certain way before you criticize  or judge someone. Besides who are you to judge anyway? In truth there is only one true judge and that's God. He created man and woman with different personalities. Just because someone acts a certain way , does something different than you or l doesn't give us the right too judge them. In Gods eyes we all are sinners and no one is perfect. Every man or woman on Earth today could use a little improvement and we all could  learn new things. So stop thinking that you are above anyone else, because no one is perfect. Some may have more riches or income than others but that doesn't make them better. Because when it all boils down to it ,God has his way of showing us that we all are really the same. All you have to do is go through a storm like Katrina and  then you will see what I am talking about. When the storm Hurricane Katrina ran through Louisiana or Mississippi we were all the same. The rich, middle class and poor all were without power or water. We all had to line up at the gas stations or grocery stores and wait on someone to help us. That in itself should show the power of God.
Try new things , learn new things, eat  new foods and walk into open doors. Most of us let fear or doubt keep us from achieving or reaching our goals . God is a good God and he wants all of us to be happy or successful. All we have to do is pray, then step out on faith, then take chances more chances and trust in him. God knows our heart and he knows our desires. That's why we all have to be careful when we pray or  for what we wish for, because we just might get it. The old saying is," To be careful for which you ask for, because you just might get it". There will be a time you will be blessed with the opportunity to get a new job, a new home or even the love of your life. But out of  fear we keep ourselves  from reaching our goals or from keeping us from being happy. We should never let anything keep us from that, not even ourselves. Because if we do, we will be living a life full of regrets, saying what we should have done and what could have been done. There is an old saying my grandmother used to say which is, 'Sometimes opportunity knocks only once". Do not let that moment slip away or you may regret it for a lifetime.
2013 should be a blessing for us all. If we prayed more, trusted God more, loved ourselves more, then we all would have complete lives. Its up to you and I to get what's ours. Nothing can stop us from being happy or successful. If we just trust God and then  reach for the stars, we can do or achieve anything. With God as the head of your life, being more humble, understanding, loving, never judgmental and patient. You and I will live the life others only dream of. So start your New Year off right and go after you dreams. After that put 2012 in the past and move on with your life. If you do not reach or go after your dreams , then  you can only blame the person in the mirror for your failures . Reach for the stars or for new heights, go after your dreams or desires and have a very Happy New Year!!!
Have a blessed night and Happy New Year!!!!
