Need Some Motivation?

Hey guys, thanks for visiting my blog! If you’re new here, I would encourage you to read the Welcome/home page when you’re done with this post. If you’ve already been reading my blog for any length of time, thank you very much and I hope you’ve been encouraged. Now to today’s message!

By the end of last school year, I was very unmotivated to do anything. It seemed as though no matter how hard or how long I worked, I was still behind. I couldn’t catch up with my schoolwork because I had fallen deep in the hole of procrastination, laziness, and poor time management. It caused a lot of stress, which in turn caused anxiety.

I really don’t want that to happen again this year, so I’m going to try to work hard to stay on top of things. I don’t ever want to be hopelessly behind again. Today is week 4 of school for me, and not surprisingly I’m not where I should be. Now, if I let it get me down and let the stress build, I will inevitably end up right where I was last year. But I’ve determined to not let that happen.

It’s Tuesday, so we unfortunately still have three days to go before the weekend. But, as I’ve sometimes found helpful, try to focus only on what you’re doing today. Look at today’s accomplishments, not yesterday’s failure. Be proud of what you did today, not worried about what you have to do tomorrow. The Bible says that “Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” As I once heard the apologist speaker and author Alex McFarland say, “Trust God in the days, and He will be faithful in the years and decades.”

If you’re needing some motivation, the best solution I can give you is to simply pray for God’s strength. Ask Him to help you with your work, and He will.

Remember to work as for the Lord, and not for people. Whatsoever your hands findeth to do, do it with all your might! Keep your eyes on Jesus and your work–no matter how hard, mundane, tedious, or tiring it may be–will be much easier. Remember to be faithful in the little things!

Happy Tuesday y’all, and God bless ❤
