I’m starting the Blog Challenge for January of 2013…this month’s theme is ENERGY..
So, if I think of where my energy comes from…it’s certainly not from MY mind or MY body or MY inner self…it is from Christ. Just read “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me” – Philippians 4:13. I pray if I’m having troubles. I pray if I’m not. I pray without ceasing. I pray because that’s what I’ve been instructed to do by His word. I also believe that the Lord puts people around you to motivate you. If I am having a hard time pushing through something, almost always the people I think of are my loved ones. If it’s a work project I’m dealing with resistance on, I think of how proud my husband seems of me when it comes to my job. When I’m having a hard time even THINKING of cooking dinner, I think of how much he enjoys his favorite foods. When I am exhausted and one of my kids asks me to play…I am absolutely stoked that they picked ME to spend a moment with! Our kids are so busy and getting older…if one of them actually thinks of me, I am IN! At the end of the day, it’s easy to be tired and lazy, but with the motivation from my family members, I feel like I can do anything.
Happy New Year!
