"Thank God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know." --Basil Carpenter
Dawgs!!....these are busy days. It is a good busy, but busy nonetheless. Work, studies, relationships, responsibilities....it never ends does it? Or maybe it does......I am not sure I want to go there at this time.
Wise old King Solomon says:
"....when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work--this is a gift of God." Ecclesiastes 5:19
At the sound of the morning alarm do we cringe? We all have different lots in life. For some people in this world, they literally have nothing to do--they can't get a job, they can't find constructive work. For others, they are not able to move through the challenges and opportunities of the day because of sickness and debillitation.
Where are you? Do you have something to do today? Go to it. Take God with you into your activities of the day and let Him form you in ways and through circumstances that some only dream about.
"This is the day that the Lord has made: let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
