Monday's Motivation - March 23, 2009

Hi all,

Well I need to get motivated - so I thought I would make a list of what I need to do.  It has been a hard couple of weeks - but yesterday at church really encouraged me to keep on keeping on....

My goals are...
1 Be regular at posting on my blog
2 Catch up with emails (LOL  never ending)
3 Scrap at least 2 LOs
4 Get ready for the Digi-Gathering and hopefully go (we may have the stomach flu.... waiting to see)

In my morning devotion, I just read this....

Though many people historically have made great sacrifices for a greater good, and some undoubtedly still do, we are more likely to act as if avoiding sacrifices is the greater good.  We seek safety, comfort, security, and pleasure, often at the expense of doing God's will.


Are we looking for the easy life?  One with no complications?  One that is smooth and perfect?

Yesterday at church the verse that stuck out at me was....

1 corinthians 16:9for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

I have been down lately after having a great week.  Things seemed to be going great - and then it was like I was being held down.  I kind of forgot the truths of this passage.  If we are doing something good for God - the enemy does not like it.  He does not want God to be victorious.  BUT we KNOW the end of the story - GOD IS VICTORIOUS!!!

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12)

I for one am going to Keep on Keeping On!  I am going to get back up and fight the good fight!!!


How about you???  Will you stand up and make a difference for God?  Do you know Jesus as your Savior?  He died on the cross for YOU - so that you can enjoy this victory that GOD has done!!!
