The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!

Good “Saturday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the weekend from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” on Day Three of “Operation Costa Rica!” — 15 January 2022!

Today’s Message is: “View Day!” Why Not?

“Having the correct leadership view of people and the organization is essential to focusing attention on what really matters. The people you lead will have a different perspective and view, so you need to nourish and evoke the best qualities in those people and create a strong and healthy organization that will be impactful, effective, ethical, and inspired. How is your view from the top today?" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good Saturday morning Kerry. Sorry, I am taking calls this morning so I am on intermittently...
What an awesome topic for the Colonel since all of the pictures he and Diane are taking there in Costa Rica have been amazing...over and over, one says, OMG, check out that view.
And on that thought, it is that while it is easier to go down...less resistance and effort, the best views are from the top. The same is true for life in general; the best takes effort. The easy way is just that...and it is usually filled with others who also chose not to put for the extra effort. Which are you?

Good Saturday morning to you, Charlie... There is no question that the best views are from the top, but in my case I will take mountains over tall buildings, like the One World Trade Center building or the Empire State building... I don't mind flying at all, but being on top of a building with a ledge and I get weak kneed... when I look down... Being on top of a majestic mountain is more my type of thing... LOL! Have a great day, Charlie...

Hopefully you comprehend that your value is beyond measure in God’s view. The atonement of Jesus the Christ on the cross is the penultimate demonstration of selfless agape love. No doubt you understand that each person is equal in value in the LORD’s perfect view of humanity. I expect your involvement with those you lead and those who rely on your judgement and advice is balanced between interacting with them respectfully, allowing them latitude to operate, exercise their viewpoints without prejudice, and speak their minds respectfully and freely. No doubt they appreciate the mutual trust between you. ‘or one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. [Romans 5:7-9 ESV], my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown.

I pray for a sufficient increase of the Fruit of the Spirit kindness, gentleness, and self-control for each of YOUR adopted sons and daughters who reads this prayer or listens to it dear LORD. We need humility and YOUR grace to serve the weakest and most needful among us. Guide us where we are needed physically and virtually as well as through intercessory prayer guidance. ‘In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.’ [Hebrews 6:17-18 ESV]

Thank YOU, LORD, for designing us to heal, guiding the mind and hands of medical professionals and working supernaturally I lift those afflicted with PTSD, mental illness, serious infective illnesses, cancers, COVID, and significant physical disabilities to YOU LORD as well as the medical professionals, rehabilitative trainers and counselors. I pray that YOU bless the medical and rehabilitative professionals with discernment, patience, skill, and compassion as they work to help people recover from injuries and diseases. I pray that YOU give insight and great communication skills to educators and trainers who are training and educating children, military personnel and others undergoing training. ‘It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons’ [Hebrews 12:6-7 ESV]

No doubt they appreciate the freedom and latitude and hopefully they act responsibly. ‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another.’ [Romans 15:13-14 ESV]

I pray that each one of us are discerning and wise as the members the Berean church who searched the scriptures [Old Testament] to see of what Paul was saying lined up with God’s Word. when any tries to tell us anything that distorts basic Christian doctrine – especially Jehovah’s Witness, LDS, Word of Faith teachers and all others who have a distorted view of God. ‘Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if these teachings were true. As a result, many of them believed, along with quite a few prominent Greek women and men.’ [Acts 17:11-12 ESV]

The LORD admonishes each of us that humility and service to others is the higher level of human excellence. In the world system the political lords expect to be served. In the Biblical worldview the leaders serve with humility and respect to all. ‘Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free.’ [Ephesians 6:5-8 ESV]

'I pray for wisdom for the Supreme Court chief justice and associate justices as they review cases and make judgements. 'I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curse. Therefore, choose life, that you and your offspring may live!' [Deuteronomy 30:19 ESV]
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Saturday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Sunday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

Lt Col Charlie Brown - A career Army man, an uncle once gave me similar advice. "Never look back," meaning mostly to not to fret over traumatic events. Sage advice that I follow to this day.

The best part of being a flier was the tremendous views, and they actually pay you to see them. But you do need to focus on the objective while enjoying that view!

Much better view than the view through submarine windows and screen doors. But, most of my second career, was with foreign entities (NORTEL, Siemens and Fujitsu), lots of air time. Totally agree with your comment.
