Daily Devotional – 8/4/15 “What are you doing now?”

It’s another month, another month closer to the end of the year … what are you doing? Are you still in the same shape you were in last year? Is it worse? What are you doing? Have you started on any of the goals you set at the beginning of the year? Have you made any steps toward the vision you wrote? Have you gotten up to do anything differently other than change your clothes? Have you worked on that mouth of yours that stay on folk? Have you worked on your attitude that is always rude? Have you worked out your schedule to pencil Jesus in? I’m only asking a simple question, what are you doing now?

You cannot continue to blame folk, society, momma nem, the folk on the job, the man for holding you back, your baby daddy or baby momma or even your fear because at some point; you’ve got to get up and do something. You cannot continue to wallow in self-pity, it isn’t working anymore. You cannot continue to play the woe is me song, it’s played out. Aren’t you tired of being in that pit, it has to be dark? Aren’t you tired of crying, your eyes have to be tired? Aren’t you ready for a change? You have the opportunity to do something differently because you’ve been given a fresh anointing of today. And if you didn’t know this, let me tell you … You may not get tomorrow. You can do whatever you want, stop letting fear stop you! You can be whomever you decide, stop letting the enemy talk you out of your purpose and destiny. I put this on the new postcards I created and it just happens to fit here, “Don’t ever allow the ink to dry up in your pen!” You have a story to write, do it!
