But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
Life is a Constant Process
A never ending process to be exact. I am writing this post on Tuesday night, or rather Wednesday morning at 1:30 A.M. My extremely fussy son who seems to be teething has finally closed his eyes for the night. I should be happy and getting myself ready for bed. But instead, I look at my floor cluttered with toys and incomplete homework assignments. I had a set list of things I wanted to do today. Accomplishing even one thing on my list would have made this day a pretty good one. But did that happen? Nope. It was pretty discouraging, but I have come to realize that life is a constant process.
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
Back in August I had talked about making an inspiration board. I discussed that in addition to my beginning to Bible Journaling. If you need a refresher, that post can be found here. I finished my board a few weeks ago and stuck it on a wall next to my bedroom door so I could look at it everyday. I would look at it but did not really take a minute to think about the things that I had put onto my board. The things I put on my inspiration board were what I want to accomplish in my life. On index cards I had my goals and things that I want to happen. I included things like obtain my Bachelor’s degree, read 4 books in one month, and take a $1,000 shopping spree. Honestly, who doesn’t love a good shopping spree. But looking back on my goals, I realized that I have to work hard to achieve them. I want to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in the spring, so I have to work for it. I let the stress of college life pull me into this discouraging phase of life. Those goals were set for a reason. I plan to make them happen.
For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
Make it Happen
Tonight I finished my picture for Genesis 2 and 3. I was mostly done anyways, but finishing that last part gave me hope. As insignificant as it may seem to some, to me it gave hope that I can finish my school year strong. I have to not only want it for myself but to trust that God will guide me through it. School is already halfway over but that doesn’t mean anything. Don’t lose the momentum that you had at the beginning. Don’t let cluttered floors and homework assignments discourage you from completing your goals. Even if you aren’t in school, you are always working on yourself. Life for you could be making healthier choices, getting a better job, or wanting to make any life changes. Either way, you will always be on the move somewhere and somehow. Trust in God to pull you through it. Until next time, stay blessed:)
Fear not, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
