An Enthusiastic Appeal…
Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity, but with it you can accomplish miracles. ~Og Mandino~
A common trait among the most successful in any field of endeavor, is a zest for life and an enthusiasm regarding that which they do. There is a natural attraction created when we are zealous about a cause or belief that draws others to want to be a part of what we are doing.
Thought for the day
Am I a magnet for those looking to live in the light or do I attract those living in the darkness of addiction and compulsive addictive behaviors? Excitement and enthusiasm cause circumstances to line up with expectations. Light your inner fire, and get excited about the opportunities that you now have in sobriety. Life can be so wonderfully full if we live it rightly. The results will continue to fuel that fire and you will seem like a magnet for godliness!
Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord. Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. ~Romans 12:11,12 (Amp)~
Work hard, but not just to please your masters when they are watching. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free. ~Ephesians 6:6-8 (NLT)~
