Practical Wisdom For Life

MONDAY MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE

Similar to the wisdom of Proverbs, every Monday I will share a practical wisdom quote.  I pray this quote will make a difference in your personal life and relationships.  

“It's a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
Germany Kent

Write Out Your Purpose In Life

I think it is so very important for every one of us to live life with a purpose.  Proverbs 29:18 states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish . . . .” 

The apostle Paul said, “For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”  Regarding his purpose Billy Graham said, “I was faithful to what God wanted me to do, I maintained integrity in every area of my life, and I lived what I preached.” 

What is your purpose for living today?  The four questions below may help you find your purpose.

1.  What will your “footprints” be on this earth?

2.  How would you like to be remembered by family members, friends, and associates?

3.  How would you spend your precious time if you only had two years to live?

4.   What would you like to see etched on your tombstone?

Today: Write out your purpose in life by completing this sentence, “My purpose in life is . . . .”

Recommend An Enjoyable Restaurant!

I thought I would make this Wednesday’s blog post fun by seeking your favorite restaurants from around the U.S. 

Last week my wife and I attended the Kentucky Christian Writers Conference to learn marketing ideas for the future launching (released later in 2019) of my Christian marriage book, SIMPLE HABITS FOR MARITAL HAPPINESS - Practical Skills and Tools That Build a Strong Satisfying Relationship.  We had delicious barbecue at MARK’S FEED STORE in Elizabethtown voted “Best of Louisville.” 

I am sure you have eaten at wonderful restaurants.  Will you please email your favorite restaurant either locally or during your travels?  I will not share your name but only your restaurant suggestion in future blog posts.  Others will delight in discovering hidden gem restaurants. 

Today:  Please email your restaurant recommendation to info@DrRandySchroeder.com.

“There is no shame in having fallen.  Nor any shame in being born into a lowly estate.  There is only shame in not struggling to rise.  And also shame for not wishing to attain the better.  Or not dreaming about it and praying for it.”  Samuel Amalu

 

7 Ways to Rebuild Broken Trust  

Trust is one of the key components for healthy relationships.  Shattered trust will severely crack any friendship, family relationship, or marriage connection.  Broken trust may occur from lies, abuse, infidelity, financial secrets, etc.  Shown below are 7 ideas to rebuild trust in order to restore a relationship bond.

1.  Acknowledge the problem.  The offender must admit that their words or actions demolished the trust.

2.  Sincere repentance.  The offender offers either a verbal or written genuine apology. 

3.  Request forgiveness.  Just saying “I am sorry” is not enough because asking for forgiveness helps validate a repentant attitude.

4.  Choose to forgive.  The offended person needs to offer forgiveness to begin the reconciliation process. 

5.  Restorative words and actions.  The offended person may make a list of words and actions for the offender that will restore faith in the offender.

6.  The offended needs to risk wisely.  Please use reason and logic and understand that rebuilding trust increases 1% at a time through truthful words and honest actions.

7.  Trust is a percentage.  Realize that no one is 100% trustworthy but the higher in the 90th percentile a friendship, family relationship, or marriage is the more likely for a satisfying relationship. 

Today:  If necessary, begin using these 7 steps for rebuilding a broken trust in order to achieve the goal of a healthy reconciliation.
