what keeps you going?

Motivation to keep moving along in life is something we all have or long for. Some people ask me how I do what I do and where I get my energy. That’s something I wonder about myself … although I do know what it is that keeps me going.

I have this habit of reading. Not just any book, but the Bible. And not just devotionals about the Bible, but the actual Bible. Devotionals are good and they have a lot of good stories and scripture in them, but the Bible is what gets me through.

It is the Bread of Life … We’re actually told in the Bible that ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God’.

Bread of Life

Jesus is the Bread of Life and Jesus is the Word. Jesus keeps me going as I read His Word.

Are you a reader of the Word of God? Are you in a place where you need motivation to move forward? Or are just not quite as happy with where you are in life at this point?

I’d like to suggest trying out reading the Bible once a day … even just a verse a day … for a month. Start with the book of Psalms or John. They’re easy to read. One chapter a day, or one verse a day. Whatever you like. You will find some motivation and you will find yourself in a better place than you are today.

Thanks for listening. 🙂
