Boss in the middle. Day 3 prayer challenge. Honesty – Wrap up.

IMG_0434My 3rd day into the “boss in the middle prayer challenge” was a good day.  The thought God gave me for today was “honesty”.  Sometimes that scares me, because left to my own devices, I can be too honest.  Almost brutally.  Sometimes it scares me because it is much easier to tell a half-truth than the whole-truth.  However, I trusted in God today and something amazing happened.

Boss in the middle. Day three prayer challenge. Truth and Honesty.

IMG_0432This morning my meditation and prayer time left me with the thought. Truth and honesty.  I can’t explain why these particular things are coming in my brain, but God has a knack for giving me what I need before the day begins.  I’ve only done this challenge for three days and each day, the final thought or Godly inspiration plays a big part in the day.  Maybe it’s for me or maybe it’s for you.  Who knows?

So, for every boss in the middle out there.  Remain truthful and honest today.  We should do it everyday, but something is telling me today we should especially watch out for the tendency to tell half-truths.

Be a leader, be a boss. Handle your business today.  Because in order to be truthful, you need to exhibit courage and faith.  We lie because of fear.

I’ll check back in tonight.

Sometimes, you need to take a time-out.

IMG_0417During conflicts, a boss in the middle must know when to say “time-out”.  There’s a point when arguing your point (even if you’re right) only works to further aggravate the situation.  There are many other benefits to discontinuing an argument.

Don’t apologize for doing you.

IMG_0413So, I took a break from blogging for a bit.  No reason.  Just took a break.  At first I felt a little guilty, like the people following me would be angry or unfollow me because I wasn’t writing every few days.  Like it’s all about me.  I was trying to figure out how to apologize, then I realized something…

How to stop worrying, like a boss.

IMG_0382.PNGThis isn’t one of those bible verses that are hard to understand or easily taken out of context.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

It’s the old classic, “don’t worry” verse.  But, there’s more to it.  As a boss in the middle of this crazy world, it’s essential that you understand this truth.

Don’t waste your focus.

IMG_0375As a boss in the middle of this crazy world, we are always focused on something. Sometimes it’s exactly what we should focus on, sometimes it’s not. But we are always focused. Basically, we need to focus, on what we focus on. I am purposely saying the word “focus” a lot. It should be a focal point. Read on for my perspective of proper and improper focus.

Seeking Topics

imageI’m seeking topics.  If you have a question about something relating to managing yourself “in the middle” of this crazy world, drop me a line in the comments or shoot me an email at bossinthemiddle@gmail.com.

I’ve got experience to offer in life, love, leadership, marriage, parenthood, sex, work, business, writing tips, etc…

If I don’t know the answer, I won’t pretend I do.  I may have to do some research and get back to you, but that will only help me grow.  So please, ask anything.

I use the Holy Bible as my base.  Hopefully, the content of this website can help people become the best godly version of themselves.  It’s already helping me be honest in areas that were once hidden and broaden my bible study in order to provide helpful content.

I truly pray that this will bless many lives.  No topic is off limits.

More to come soon on that…

Thanks to all of you who have supported me and provided feedback.  Keep it coming!

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.

What are you sharpening?

img_0347Proverbs 27:17 states that as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Sharpening others requires us to use our influence. With this influence comes great responsibility. We should always be aware of what we are sharpening.
