Diligent to the very end.

It's FRIDAY!

And. I. Am. Exhausted. LOL

I remember a time when Friday's were the day! I couldn't wait to get off of work and make plans to go out and party with friends all night (sometimes all weekend). I don't miss those days at all! You can tell you're a grown up when your Friday night preference is to stay home with your family and be in bed by ten o'clock. Speaking of 10:00, it is now 10:04 PM, I have no blog posted, and as I said before, I am exhausted! I planned on spending the entire day cleaning and making room for all the stuff I'm going to be receiving at my baby shower next weekend. However, after the four loads of laundry that I did earlier, I just didn't feel like doing any more chores today. It was another one of those days where I could not figure out what to write about so it was hard to find the motivation to sit down for this post. Most days, the Lord will use something that happens throughout my day to give me a specific writing idea and it's pretty much a piece of cake from there. But other days, like today, he requires me to work a little harder. Of course, it's on the days that I don't feel like working, that he requires me to work diligently to the very end (of the week and this day!) when all I really want to do is go to bed. Isn't God funny like that? He knows me so well. He knows that when I start to get too comfortable I get a little lazier, I complain more, I make excuses for not doing things that I know I should do; I start to lose sight of him and he needs to put me back in my place and remind me who is in control. Meanwhile, on the other side of his glory, remains his promises and blessings that come out of doing the work. Nothing is ever in vain! So, I "did the work" and a scripture from Hebrews 6:10-12is what spoke to me and it says:

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

Amazing, right?! I love these power packed scriptures that breathe life into my spirit! It is EXACTLY what I needed to hear tonight. I hope that this truth lifts you up in the same way that it has lifted me up. Every lesson that I learn in my day-to-day life and post for you, I believe, are things that God uses to speak directly into your life! So be diligent in your faith and work hard to seek understanding as he reveals his promises for you to inherit! Stay blessed and unhindered!
