Noah's Ark

10 Life-Lessons from Noah’s Ark

The Biblical story of the great flood (see Genesis 6:1-9:17)

has been around for a long time. It has counterparts in many

other cultures. Each generation has learned much from the

story — and so can those of us in the coaching community!

Needless to say, “Always build on the highest ground possible”,

because character always counts!


Here
are ten more:


1. Always plan ahead.

There wasn’t any rain in the forecast when Noah started building

the ark.

2.Don’t listen to your critics.

Listen instead to your heart, and then do whatever has to be done.

The neighbors might have taunted when Noah was blocking

their driveway — but he had the last laugh as soon as the rain

began falling!


3.Stay physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally fit.

You never know but that when you’re 600 years old, someone

might come along out of the blue and ask you to do something

REALLY big!


4.Don’t seek to go it alone.

Always travel, at least, in pairs, because two heads are

better than one.

two better than one

two better than one

5.Speed is not always an advantage.

The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails; and

they all arrived safely on dry ground at the very same time.

6.Handle Conflict with certainty.

If you can’t fight or flee from adversity — at least make

certain you have an idea that can float in the battlefield

of ideas!


7.Don’t miss the boat!

Never forget this underlying truth: that ultimately when

all is said and done, we’re all in the same boat!

8. Be flexible in your thinking.

Remember that amateurs built the ark while professionals

built the Titanic and the Challenger Space Shuttle.


9. Remember that Fear is nothing more than

“False Evidence Appearing Real”.

The woodpeckers on the INSIDE are often a bigger threat to

your overall well being than the storms raging on the outside.

10. Remain faithful and optimistic.

No matter how bleak things look, if God is traveling with you,

there’s always going to be a rainbow of peace on the other

side of the storm.

God's Rainbow of Promise



5 vital senses

5 vital senses .. all souls cannot do without

♥ ♥ ♥

In the seeing eye …

We stand in awe by the colorful splendor of God’s rainbows.

We are spellbound and breathless with the beauty of God’s sunsets

♥ ♥ ♥

In the hearing ear …

We resonate with the majestic crashing waves against the shore.

We lull and soothe to the sweet refrains of the melodious harp

♥ ♥ ♥

With the tasting mouth …

We are satisfied with palatable food; given as a gift from God above. 

We are understood from the words put forth in honesty and kindness.

♥ ♥ ♥

In the feeling of the hand …

We feel the textures of the earth and the clear power of water.

We touch with the give and take from the expressions of love.

♥ ♥ ♥

From the smelling of the nose …

We gravitate towards the aroma of succulent food and juicy fruits.

We are intoxicated with the perfumed notes of flowers in a bottle.

♥ ♥ ♥

Moral :

Do not take these for granted, for our five vital senses are deemed the utmost precious gifts,

for one cannot do without the other.

It should be counted and prized the highest or else if one is handicapped;

it’s deemed as one momentous casualty.

There may be scars

But hope still for stars

For stars shineth on and on

So, you gotta keep on keeping on

No matter how life’s curve balls hits

Have faith in God and hope still sits

Hard times, troubled times, saddens the soul

Time is timeless, move forward, purge the old

Every cycle of life has a beginning and an end

Look for rainbows after a storm for its God-send

Walk through life at your own even pace

Adopt positive attitude, keep a smiling face

Signs are posted at every junction and all crossroads

Be alert, be aware and take heed the wisdom it unloads

At every juncture and every fork pray for discretion

To a God who giveth sagaciousness on every question

In all lives a little rain must fall before the sun shines

Defines character, perspectives change, horizon realigns

Accept challenges, overcome obstacles, create some goals

With much effort and tenacity, attainment fulfills our souls

Aboard the ship of life fear not of adverse stormy waves

Persevere and endure on for whom God loves God saves

Every star though minute from gaze could be a raging sun

Immerse clarity in your mind, blast on, life’s an awesome run
