4:32 – Psych Up or Out?
#faithbites #faithjourney psych
Sometimes life is hard and getting motivated is hard. Back in 2018, I wrote a #faithbites focusing on a scene from “Kill Bill” where our heroine had to get motivated after paralysis. It was all about her commanding herself to wiggle her big toe.
This morning, while in the shower, I felt all of my tasks and responsibilities weighing on me, I almost psyched myself out. In other words, I let the weight of my tasks get me down and put a negative spin on my day. I turned it over to God and said, “No, I will have a good day”. It doesn’t always work, but I’m trying.
Today’s questions: What are you doing to psych yourself up for the day? How are you using your faith to block out the world and not get down?
- Genesis 11:6 – “Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!
- 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 – We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. 4 We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
- Deuteronomy 28:2 – And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the LORD your God.
We are loved, cherished, forgiven, creative, people. God wants us to succeed. The question is how do we use God’s direction to be energized? First, we need to realize that while we live in the world, we don’t use the tools of the world to succeed. We use God’s word. Second, God has given us the power to do everything if we work together. Our task is to just follow his word, work together, and love.
Finally, as with most #faithbites, we have to act. We have to chose to use God’s word to get psyched up rather than let the world psych them out.
We will close with the same questions that we started with. What are you doing to psych yourself up for the day? How are you using your faith to block out the world and not get down?
Father God, you want us to thrive and be successful. Help us conquer the world which wants us to psych us out. Let us stay in your word and your way through all the troubles and tribulations we have. Let us use your energy to psych us Up and give us the energy, drive, compassion, and direction to move forward and serve you. We pray all of this in your name, Amen.
