There are some things you promised yourself or some goals you set at the top of the year that you haven’t accomplished. To take it a step further, you have actually given up on those things all together; not because you can’t do it, but because of frustration, or just not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I posted this video to youtube earlier today because as soon as I realized it was the 1st of October, it hit me like a ton of bricks that this is what’s considered the home stretch of the year.
In addition to what I said in the video, my word to you today is stick. Yes y’all…STICK and go get it!!! Your blessing is in the PRESS. Keep pressing toward whatever goal you had…especially when you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it’s for your good! So you got derailed. It happens to EVERYONE at some point.
You can’t lose the weight if you quit the meal plan or workout. You can’t get the new job if you stop submitting resumes. You can’t finish the album if you stop booking studio time. You can’t finish the book if you stop typing words on the pages. You can’t progress to the next place if you stay seated in the same place. I am feeling super passionate about this topic right now for personal reasons, but I am definitely in a place where I can speak on it…glory to God!!
Isaiah 40:29-31 reads — He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even the youth grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.
Allow me to encourage you today, to stay the course (or for some of you, get back in the race) in these last few months of the year. You will thank yourself for it in 2015. Not because you hustled so hard or whatever…it’s not about a grind. It’s about finishing what you start and finishing strong. As long as you have breath, you have life…that should be all the motivation you need to get yourself on track. God is worthy of our efforts to become the best we possibly can as people. It’s all about glorifying Him anyway. Let’s GO!!!!!
