Hey everyone it’s Adam DeGraide and look who I have today it’s Krystle DeGraide here in San Diego is right across the way, by the way guys, as you know we’re near the water we love it. And we’re staying over at the Del Coronado, which is where we met, which is amazing. Krystle was like:
“Do you really need to put me on this video today”
I’m like yes, I do. She didn’t want to. But I made her come anyway. The other day we were sitting on the couch, and I was having one of my weak moments, and she was, which happens quite a bit. And she was having, she just looked at me and I was amazed at how she can always be so positive. In the midst of my weakest moments and I said to her I said you know sweetheart, what I love about you is that even in my weakest moments, you see my greatest strengths, and we started to talk about a Scripture in the Old Testament in Jeremiah. Do you remember? It’s one of your favorite.
What does it say,
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
That’s amazing, and then obviously the New Testament, it talks about how we need to see the best, believe the best,
Think on things that are pure, that are proper and good.
And I’m amazed when you have somebody in your life that even when you feel like a failure or you’re broken in some way, they see the best in you, and it’s always amazing to me, how we need people like that in our lives.
Who’s been like that in your life?
Aah see, good
My parents obviously
Mostly me, let’s be honest.
Yea only my husband, only
I’m just kidding
But we all need real positive people in our lives and so if you’re watching the video today and you’re thinking about this and you’re realizing, wow you know do I even see the greatest strength in people when they’re in their weakest moments are we encouraging those around us that we love and that we come in contact with, because everybody needs a little bit of encouragement, would you think?
This morning we were at breakfast at a place called was it Clinton’s. Something like that here in Coronado.
There was a soldier named Edwin who came in. because It’s a military base there and we were just talking with him or thanking him for his service. What it means to our country and our freedoms and the fact that we could be here. You know on the island, it’s free and have a great, like an American diner breakfast, and he was sharing about how he’s been away from his wife and his little daughter for over two months at this point in time, and how much he missed ‘em.
And so we tried to give him encouragement this morning as well too and I feel like we made his day a little bit brighter. Right.
And so, who in your life is helping you see your strengths and your weakness moments.
For me it’s my wife, for her it’s me and her family, my family as well too and those who love us. But let’s not forget that God has a plan for us. A plan for us to prosper, to give us a hope, right, he sees the best in us, he believes the best in us, and even in our weakest moments. God sees our strength in us, and that’s pretty cool. Is there anything else you want to say to the people who watch them first of all, way better looking than me as you can tell folks,
Is there anything else you want to say to the folks?
Have a great weekend. Have a great weekend, yes, it’s actually true, have a great weekend and a great year.
This has been Adam DeGraide with a micro motivation. Remember, if you can’t make your point in four minutes you might not have one to make. Have a great day everyone.
