My daily devotional insights... and reflections.
HOLD ON... TO THE FINISH LINE. DON'T STOP.
FIRST RULE OF LEADERSHIP:
It Ain't as Bad as You Think! It Will Look Better in the Morning!
by Colin Powell
This helps me make it through (continue), and has done... more times than I can count!
One time I heard: God uses sleep to restore, rejuvenate us so we can face another day afresh. He does this through dreams, most of which we never even remember (but our spirit remembers). I believe it.
Almost daily, the following thought keeps me going:
We all have a race (filled with struggles) we must run. It is supposed to be that way.
Look around. Every day, many (not only me and you) are doing things they do not wish to do. God has purpose in this.
He (Jesus) tells us to run so as to win. I must finish my course to win my prize (reward).
When I was thinking about quitting a recent service position, I heard God: "Finish what you started."
AND... Sometimes we forget that God (JESUS) says, Whatsoever you do to the least of your brethren, that you do unto me. So hold that critical response. Be kind. For we will be held accountable for every idle thought and word and action. At the moment, though it may seem inconsequential, it's not.
Since this has been and continues to be helpful to me, daily... I may have posted a similar entry prior to this one. If so, know this: It's worth repeating.
