If you want to arrive at, or achieve excellence in what you are and do.. i.e., as in worship, in witnessing, or in your work.
Listen up, you can get there. The Lord stands ready to help you. As of this second, this very moment, this day, you can simply choose to quit doin' less-than-what's-really-excellent. Sure, do it with right motives and attitude.. as unto the Lord. Pray in faith like you mean it.. cuz you really do. He'll be both pleased and glorified. facebook.com/shareJesus

What's better than happy? Joy is, but be thankful and, "Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties." ~ Helen Keller
"Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord.." 1.1-2ps.amp
"When we are such as He can love without impediment, we shall in fact be happy." ~ C.S. Lewis

Of course, who hasn't felt better after the passing of time, but listen.. if you have a broken heart, just give it to God.

..and to be this way minus spiritual compromise in a world gone astray.. in a world that doesn't mind lying or living a lie.
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying." Rev. 22:15
Remember this, before one can fully appreciate hearing the Good News, they've got to hear and understand the bad news. For all have sinned and fallen short.. for the wages of sin is death. All need the second Adam (Jesus Christ) and to be born again in Him, because they actually weren't born right the first time..inside. They...we.. were born in first Adam.
It's not biblical to talk about God saving people, but never tell them to repent, to turn, to change as they trust Christ to save them.
Puttin' your hope in yourself or others without having Jesus as Lord.. ultimately leads to disappointment.
