Daily encouragement as you follow His path

Content vs. Complacent

Don’t confuse contentment with complacency.  God wants us to be content – happy with what we have.  Complacency is settling for where you are without trying to improve.  Learn to be content, but continue to strive for success.  Just be sure that you seek God before things.  Use your blessingsto do His work.

Keep Your Eyes (And Mind) on the Prize!

Sometimes life feels like an uphill battle.  You keep marching up and getting pushed back down the same side of the mountain.  You feel like you’ll never reach the top.  Today, pray for patience and faith to trust the process.  Keep your eyes and mind focused on the goal, whatever that goal may be.  Deal with distractions swiftly and deliberately.  Don’t let them side track you and zap you of valuable energy you need to get to the top.  Ignore negative comments and criticisms.  They aren’t worthy of your energy either.  Concentrate with your whole being on where you are going and before you know it…you’ll be at your destination.
