Don’t grow weary in doing good

Keep-Going-sign_thumb

This morning as I was getting ready for work this Bible verse came to mind:

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up - Galatians 6:9

I love my life for the most part, but in all honesty some days if I focused on the mammoth task list ahead of me, I seriously would not get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes doing good seems like the biggest chore in the world and you just want to say; “forget it!” and go back to bed.

So I do three things at times like these:

1.   Chunk-it:

I tackle my day in manageable chunks. I write down exactly what I have to do  - I then do my best to focus entirely on one task at a time – sometimes it’s the very act of trying to hold so much info in your head at once that is most stressful. Our brains can only actually hold a few thoughts at a time before dropping balls.

2.    Visualise the big picture:

I remind myself that the little choices I make today, will lead to a great future for me and my family tomorrow. In fact I actually have a dream book with pictures and written descriptions of the life I aspire to have and I remind myself of the achievements that have already been made.

3.    I let go and let God:

We can only do what we can do and often the pressure we put on ourselves far out ways what others put on us. So I remind myself that if I do my best, God will do the rest.

I believe it’s so important to have clear goals and a strong sense of direction, in essence ‘A purpose driven life’ – purpose will propel you.
