Today’s Encouragement and Motivation is to have the courage to keep moving forward when the weight of the world seems to be against you.
As I sit here at the garage waiting for my car to be worked on, because I procrastinated as long as I could, I am finding it hard to do it with a cheerful heart. Out of everything I take care of for my home and family, car repairs is my least favorite thing to do. I feel like I am wasting my valuable time which is not plentiful to begin with. I struggle with handling car repairs because it is usually met with unexpected extra things wrong and decisions that need to be made on a moments notice and then I am questioned why I made the decisions I have made. To me this is an incredibly stressful job that I HATE doing.
So as I searched for something to encourage and motivate you as well as myself, I came across a powerful saying by Winston Churchill,
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill
When life is wrought with struggles cling to the hope that success is not final. No matter how many things go wrong there is hope for everything to turn itself around eventually. You have to have the courage to keep moving forward.
I created this t-shirt a little while ago to serve as a reminder, “Courage Conquers Fear”. God did not create in us to have a heart of fear for the foreseen or unforeseen events in life. He created in us to have a heart that is calm and of peace.
” Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13 NIV
My friend, as you begin your week, try to remain faithful, strong, and courageous knowing everything you are going through or that which lies ahead of you, God will give you the strength to conquer it all.
Stand tall with your head held high and have the courage to keep moving forward no matter how rocky your journey may be.
Have a great week!
