Pick Something

Pick something. Pick something today that you’ve always told yourself “I could never.” Then go and try it. Get a little dirty. Fall flat on your face. Fail miserably. Then go back and try it again tomorrow. Repeat this pattern every day until the thing you said you would never be able to do, becomes the thing you’re doing. Only then will you realize that you were never a failure, just a slow success. With the right attitude you have nothing to lose. Effort means you can only gain. You gain wisdom, you gain knowledge, you gain strength, you gain endurance, you gain self-discipline, you gain perspective and you get to learn a whole lot along the way. Once you understand that you are capable of so much more than you give yourself credit for, the possibilities are endless. Then you get the privilege of encouraging others on their journey.

Finding Balance

“Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to Me and hears my words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.” Luke 6

What a blessing that my life has gone in every single direction, other than which I had planned. It’s been choppy, and it’s most certainly been turbulent. God’s grace alone has revealed my endless weakness, allowing me to rely on Him alone and stand strong in ways I didn’t think possible. Even when the waters get rough, I never have to question the solid foundation on which I stand. Though each new day brings surprises of its own, there flows a deep stream of joy, confidence, and peace within my veins, rejoicing that His ways are so much higher than my understanding.

“Cast your burdens upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” Psalm 55:22
