You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone



"You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone,
which can become a watered-down, occasional hope
that you'll get to tomorrow.
Intention without action is useless."
- Caroline Myss

"Without action, without decision,
you remain in possibility,
which is safe and beautiful but eventually enervating and boring."
- Jennifer Louden

"In the same way, faith by itself,
if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
James 2:17

"Therefore, prepare your minds for action,
keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely
on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
1 Peter 1:13

"I will waste not even a precious second today in
anger or hate or jealousy or selfishness.
I know that the seeds I sow I will harvest,
because every action, good or bad,
is always followed by an equal reaction.
I will plant only good seeds this day."
- Og Mandino


"When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it,
evil comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart.
This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road.

The one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places,
this is the man who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy;
yet he has no firm root in himself, but is only temporary,
and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away.

And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns,
this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world
and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil,
this is the man who hears the word and understands it;
who indeed bears fruit and brings forth,
some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty."
Matthew 13:19-23

God, let me of the many intentions that I have,
fulfil those that suit in your plan.
Give that your word may work loose the right things in me
and make me grow in faith.
That my actions will bear fruit and will bring me up to you.
That I ask you in Jesus' name.
