Why Can’t I Get Motivated?
This may be a question you’re asking yourself right now?
You have dreams, things you want to do, experiences rich inside the heart and mind, but something comes up lacking when it’s actually time to take the required action steps to move upon your goals. Why?
You maybe be experiencing a vicious cycle of deleterious effects because of a “start-stop syndrome”. You’ve got the best intentions, you may even begin that daunting task, that exercise program or clean eating menu—but something inside just isn’t clicking and the motivation
God always equips us for how He calls us–
In the process of the equipping we endure a season constructed by heaven to retreat into the Savior’s Arms. Often times it requires a Night or a dark season of soul to relinquish our will for His.
Think back in your life to a time when it felt dark as night. You had a trouble or problem that was so much bigger than you and you didn’t know what to do. Maybe there wasn’t much you could do—just endure and perhaps you even
Noah was on the back forty talking to God…
What is the back forty?
back forty noun
Definition of back forty
: a remote and uncultivated or undeveloped piece of land of indefinite size (as on a farm)
Because of the nature of Noah’s Intimacy with Heaven he was immune to the commentary of his peers. It may be true he didn’t like it, but it didn’t waiver or move him to unmove what God had asked him to move. So he moved…the comfort zone of every human on the planet. Figuratively and then literally!
Through time trends come and then they go only to reappear again some time later.
Fitness is in style. Period. We live in a culture that has moved to the extreme in everything. Not only is fitness hip, but there are so many ways to express it.
When I was young I was always attracted to an athletic frame. Not just in men—women also. I had a deep regard for muscle tone and that “healthy” look. I found it appealing. Probably one of the reasons I became a sponge for all things

Have you ever tried to slice something with a dull knife?
Like many people, I have one of those wood blocks that holds all my sharp knives and some kitchen sheers that I use only on food. Yesterday I was preparing myself some raw chicken to be grilled on my skillet and as I was using the sheers to cut the meat I noticed how easy it was. I had recently sharpened the scissors— and knives as well. Boy, what a difference it made. My work was easier and required

Be the Light…
Last weekend our power went out.
So what did my boys do?…Each went for the light on their phone or a flashlight. The youngest and I played cards on my bed.
The power was out for a good hour or more and they laughed and giggled and played with the shadows from the lights in our phones. I thanked the Lord for this short lived inconvenience. It gave them time together they probably really needed. But oh how we all celebrated when the lights came back on–we hadn’t eaten and
