My trust in God is what keeping me going, without God’s steady hand I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I am whats deemed as an essential worker so I’ve been working throughout these trying times, I hold a leadership position at work and I am responsible for keeping people calm, and those responsibilities also carry on at home as well.
You may ask, who keep you calm? God, that who! I’m so grateful for his mercy and grace. Here is bible verse that encourages me, I hope it does the same for you.
If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money, share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Romans 12:8 NLT
“Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 NKJV
It truly feels like we are in a movie right now but we can’t panic, we must remain calm. From time to time I like to bring sports analogies into my conversations to drive my point home, so bare with me. In the mid 80s I played 8th grade basketball with one of South Carolina’s greatest basketball player’s, Gerald Daise(google him), he was a phenomenal human being as well. To start, football season always started first, so we all decided to tryout for the team, but we soon found out that we didn’t have enough players to put on the field so our football season was forfeited. We took that extra time to build chemistry amongst us players and when the basketball season started we was like the Showtime Lakers. We had a great season, ended our playoff drought but we got knocked out in the 2nd round but I still considered that season a success. We took a failed football season and turned it into great basketball season. We didn’t let fear stop us, we kept pushing forward. Our goal was to make the playoffs and we did! The COVID 19 Pandemic is our opponent right now, we can’t let fear overwhelm us, we must keep our head in the game. We must stay calm during this storm and we must keep the faith, failure is not an option, this is our season for victory, this is our true awakening!
Happy Wednesday! Funny thing is, it was a foggy ride home this morning. Today I’m meditating on the word clarity. My favorite saying is, “If you test me I will fail every time.” This means, I’m not a mind reader. Be clear while communicating today, no one can read your mind. Clear communication saves time and energy and it saves headaches by both parties involved. Be truthful, be direct, less fog equals more productivity, more productivity means success, have a great day everyone.
