Spiritual Motivation

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10

Greetings Jewels! Isn't it interesting to know how people can become so intrigued with their daily lives? We look forward to planning or attending the next social event with EXCITEMENT...we look forward to the new fab or trend with hopes that no one else is aware of...we look forward to the end of our work schedule, with much EXCITEMENT but yet when it comes to God's work, we tend to become less concerned and not readily prepared to experience SACRIFICES, LONG HOURS AND EVEN SECRETLY SHED TEARS...but yet we wonder, where is the EXCITEMENT?!?

Daily, I'm learning that God's work is not based upon self-gratification; more soley on his perfect will being manifested through our lives. Please do not misunderstand! I'm not saying that you can not have fun in God because you can; I'm simply saying there will be times that you will have to let go of some things or bad habits in order for God to begin the pruning process. For example, ladies how long have you been trying to shed those unwanted pounds?!? My point exactly...LOL...Now you see, you can HAVE FUN in the Lord!

To reiterate, in all that you do for the Lord, remember to do it with MUCH JOY, LOVE AND EXCITEMENT. As stated in the scripture above, God has already predestined you for a purpose so don't be discouraged in your daily walk with the Lord. Look forward to seeing Him per-fect His perfect will in you.

Many blessings upon you,
