Grow in Godly Living

I'm Brittany and I'm a victorious college transfer student at a community college. I'm studying to be freelance graphic designer. So on, I'm going to be writing about godly lifestyles.

My hobbies are working in Adobe creative cloud, folding origami, reading the bible, learning languages, volunteering, etc. I have a lot of hobbies so I’m not sure

I want a true friend to rebuke me, correct, and warn with kindness. I would accept criticism, not refuse it, consider it kindness, keep quiet, and not fight back. I want true friends that fear the Lord. Putting these suggestions into practice will help me control how I react to criticism, making it productive rather than destructive, no matter how it was originally intended.

There are several ways to live a happy life:

Be kind. For everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

I think being a bad friend leads to an unhappy life and being a good friend leads to a happy.

Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong; it makes you bitter. Forgiving doesn’t make you weak; it sets you free.

Never regret being a good person, to the wrong people. Your behavior says everything about you, and their behavior says enough about them.

There’s nothing better than a good person. They can change your whole day—they can change your whole life.

People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you feel.

Never stop being a good person because of bad people.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.

Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look harder.

Be strong—you never know who you are inspiring.

Think positive and positive things will happen. If you stay positive in a negative situation, you win.

Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.

If you cannot stay positive, then at least be quiet.

Being positive in a negative situation is not naïve—it’s leadership.

Start each day with a positive thought.

Live life to the fullest, and focus on the positive.

Life changes very quickly, in a very positive way, if you let it.

Being positive does not mean ignoring the negative. Being positive means overcoming the negative.

Throw kindness around like confetti.

A negative mind will never give you a positive life.

Being more positive just takes practice. You can retrain your mind to see the best possibilities in everything

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you never think a negative thought.

Watch your thoughts, they become your words.

Watch your words, they become your actions.

Watch your actions, they become your habits.

Watch your habits, they become your character.

Watch your character, they become your destiny.

Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.

The tongue has no bones, but is strong enough to break a heart. So be careful with your words.

Two things to remember in life: Take care of your thoughts when you’re alone, and take care of your words when you’re with people.

Choose your words wisely—put your brain in gear, before you put your mouth in action. Words are free. It’s how you use them that may cost you.

Don’t mix bad words with your bad mood. You will have many opportunities to change a mood but you will never get the opportunity to replace the words you have spoken.

Choose your words wisely. For what you say about others says more about you then it does about them. Always try and use kind and uplifting words when you speak of others. If you don’t have any, then don’t speak any at all. Leave a good impression so people will speak ill of you.

Before you speak: THINK!

T- is it true?

H- is it helpful?

I- is it inspiring?

N- is it necessary?

K- is it Kind?

Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can be only forgiven, not forgotten.

Three things you cannot recover in life: The Word after it’s said, the MOMENT after it’s missed, and the TIME after it’s gone. So CHOOSE your words wisely, embrace every moment you have with those you love, and NEVER waste time arguing over things that will not matter in the last five minutes of your life.

The mouth can be used either as a weapon or a tool, hurting relationships or building them up. Sadly, it is often easier to destroy than to build, and most people have received more destructive comments than those that build up. Every person you meet today is either demolition site or a construction opportunity. Your words will make a difference. Will they be weapons for destruction or tools for construction?
