Motivation Monday

via @aubreykinch

Faith Friday for last week turned into Motivation Monday for this week! I wanted to do something a little different this week and just encourage and motivate. It's great to learn more about what we need to work on, but sometimes all we need is a gentle (or not so gentle) push to continue on the path we're on. It can be tough to move forward when you feel like no one is on the side lines cheering you on, but although I probably don't know you, I pray that God will strengthen you and that you'll be motivated to be the best you can be for Him! 

Psalm 63 was a chapter that really helped me last week. it's such a beautiful declaration of trust in God and just an outpour of love for Him because He really is the best thing, ever. I motivate you to, like David, seek and thirst for the Lord. To know that it's not enough to say that you believe in Him, when you don't put the time in to get to know him better. This goes back to my last Faith Friday post! 

Declare this today:

"Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands" (3-4)

"Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me." (7-8)

Know that He is your help and that you can find comfort in His arms. Just think about that verse, 'Your love is better than life" - life is usually what we treasure the most, yet He far surpasses it because He is the life. We don't have life unless it's through Him!!! Push forward and stop looking to your past. I struggle with this constantly and this week during Youth Group, we talked about that. It hit me like a tonne of bricks. I am not defined by who I was. God sees you where you are now and He longs for you to reach your fullest potential. He sees that so clearly but we often struggle because our vision is cloudy. So pray for clarity! Pray that you move beyond this line of division between who you were and who you were made to be. Step over that boundary into what God has for you. Run as fast as you can towards it. Soon enough, in His timing, you'll understand that there was a bigger picture. 

I encourage you and pray that today you will feel a sense of peace in your heart. Have a great week, and for my fellow Canadians, hope you enjoy Victoria Day!
