Do Work!!!

August 10, 2010

Today was very challenging. Challenging in the matters of not being easily annoyed, not letting my emotions get the best of me, taking my thoughts captive, fighting for 100% belief, being obedient the first time, etc.

Just very challenging. Some points I felt defeated. And I must admit checking the mailbox can be the best or worst part of my day, recently.

Well, earlier this summer I randomly gave a goal or “challenge” to myself. And that would be to learn to sing and play A Mighty Fortress by Christy Nockels. LOVE HER!! Anyway, at the time of buying the sheet music online I didn’t really understand or fully believe I would complete the task that was set before me. However, I’ve noticed recently that in my moments of defeat or when I feel defeat or unbelief welling up in me, I get the biggest urge to play the piano. So needless to say that’s what I did today. I met my challenge(s) head on, worked hard on them, praised  God through them, and could feel weights being lifted off of me.

A mighty fortress is our God
A sacred refuge is Your Name
Your Kingdom is unshakable
With You forever we will reign

We will keep our eyes on You
We will keep our eyes on You
So we can set our hearts on You
Lord we will set our hearts on You!

If you haven’t heard that song. You should!….after you finish reading my blog. 🙂 It’s amazing and it has more than blessed me. I’m learning daily to set my heart more and more on Him because of His steadfast love for me. Thank you God for being unshakable when we continue to be moved by things we can and cannot change.

I’d like to share one scripture that I came across for the first time today. It was exactly what I needed and it constantly  challenges me every time I recite it for memory purposes. I know that in the days and journey ahead it will serve it’s purpose.

David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.

– 1 Chronicles 28:20

Your challenge: DO WORK!!!
