You can’t win by accident.

IMG_0415Being a winner is such an “on purpose” thing.  It’s a habit and a mindset.   Winning takes practice, persistence, faith and focus.  It’s not going to happen by accident. There are many people out here working very hard to ensure you don’t have accidental success.

That’s why things worth having are hard to attain.  You don’t accidentally come in first place.  People don’t accidentally complete the project.  Teams don’t accidentally win championships.  These things take concentrated effort and sacrifice.

As a boss in the middle, you have to remember that no one is going to give you anything.  You need to go hard.  You need to go wisely.

You can only trust God 100%, so keep Him first!

The spiritual war continues… (Posting an update to this from March 2017)

IMG_0365I am still in the middle of a spiritual war. It can be very painful. I feel my soul being torn part. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 gave me peace and encouragement tonight. The verses enlightened me to the fact that, while in the midst of this struggle, I can change my thought pattern.

I am the “boss in the middle” of a spiritual war.

IMG_0365I am in the middle of a spiritual war.  It is very painful.  I can feel my soul being tugged back and forth between good and evil.  1 Corinthians 16:13-14 gave me peace and encouragement tonight.  The verses enlightened me to the fact that, while in the midst of this struggle, there is a way to be.  The first step is to recognize that I am at war for my soul.

God will help you move mountains, but you need to bring a shovel.

img_0288God loves you and is there to help.  This does not only apply to when you have a big goal to reach, this also applies when you are resisting temptations.  This happened to me yesterday.  I was tempted to do something wrong, I prayed and asked God to lift it from me.  But then, the temptation only became stronger.

Make your promises count.

img_0354Came across this verse as I was reading tonight.  I wanted to write an article that was short and spiritual.  Something like this:

It is a very rare thing for me to make promises.  I simply don’t want to break them.  I don’t want my words to be taken lightly.  I say something and I’m sincere about it.  As a boss in the middle, we should all follow this model.

That, however, is an irresponsible and untrue representation of the truth.  Let me explain who I really am and what I learned tonight.

Things I need to tell myself.

img_0352There are things I’ve learned about myself which can only be described as character defects.  Flaws that at times, can make my life more painful than necessary.  As a result, I have made up a lot of sayings, quips, analogies and acronyms to remember who I am and my purpose.  I’ll share some of these things with you.

Boss in the middle is refocusing.

img_0342As I have been on this blogging journey, I have been maturing in my walk with God.  I believe He has been leading me to change the blog in order to address a wider audience on a more spiritual level.  I have been praying about this and am finally ready.

Check out the new “About the blog” and the “Boss Philosophy” pages for more info.

Please pray that the Spirit continues to guide me.

Thanks for your support!

You are a “boss in the middle”. Free will says so.

img_0340It’s common knowledge that we have free will.  God gave us this so we’d be free to genuinely love Him.  He states in Mark 8: 34-35 that, if we want true life, we need to drop our own desires in order to follow Him and support His kingdom.  By extension, He is also saying, you have a choice!

Fear keeps you alive, but it doesn’t allow you to live.

img_0319Some people say a little fear is good because it keeps you out of harms way. Our innate, natural need to stay unharmed and healthy, keeps us from jumping off a bridge or driving our car at maximum speed. Fear of pain keeps us out of trouble for sure, but there are times in our life, when we allow fear to have too much freedom. See what fear does if left unchecked and what you can do about it.
