Today is the 5th straight day of overcast sky's. For this Californian that means I want to stay at home in my comfortable soft sweats and tshirt. Get a warm blaket and sit down in my recliner watching a motivational movie (The Dark Knight Rises, Braveheart, Gladiator, To Save A Life, Black Hawk Down, Lord Of The Rings, Chronicles Of Narnia, Remember The Titans...). It gets difficult for me to stay motivated in these seasons to get out there and go for it.
The Truth Is God is still a healing God,
God still speaks to me individually through His Word each day,
I DID get up and complete my X Stretch workout on my rest day,
I do still have the most beautiful wife in the world,
I do still have 6 amazing kids who want the best life has to offer,
I do still believe I'm making an impact on the lives around me,
I am still being inspired by my family and friends...
So while there are reasons for me to be depressed, and reason I could complain, and things in life that I don't enjoy...
I choose to be inspired by my God and find ways to hold up the arms of those who don't have the strength to hold their own arms up today. As Jesus is the light and that light came into the world, I want to shine as Jesus as a bright light of hope in a dark world.
Today I will jump and reach for the next level in life without a rope, and I will rise up out of this pit that would try to tell me I am destined to die in here without hope. I will do it to survive, I will do it to inspire others to do the same, I will do it to set an example to my children of what is possible in life, I will do it to lead this family God has given me to greatness with the hope that they reach farther and higher than I ever have in life, that my fullest potential reached will be there foundation for greatness in The Lord.
