Good afternoon everyone,
Today was one of those days that it probably made sense to stay in bed because I didn't really have the energy or stamina that I needed to make it through a long workday. I have traveled non stop over the past couple of weeks and have not really had a lot of down time! Sometimes it is best not questioning what we need to do; it is better to just plunge forward and trust that God will give you a new sense of vitality! When we do that, amazing things happen. He has a way of taking our minds off what we dread and placing them on getting our jobs done with an improved sense of gratitude! When we realize that there is very little we can do to change the obvious, He seems to give us a whole new attitude adjustment. He is always ready to work with us and show us ways we quickly have forgotten that existed. We forget to include Him in our mayhem! Plunging forward is really something that is contagious also because when you endure, others see your tired body still performing at levels that don't make sense. The next time you want to give up, ask Him to give you a new sense of drive and direction. Be ready though because He may have you complete the project in a much different way in which you intended. 1 John 5:3-5 says, 'In fact, this is love for God: to keep His commands. And His commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.'
Go forth and endure for Christ knowing that He will be with you all along the way!
Your brother in Christ,
