Ask, Seek, and Knock!

Ask, Seek,, and Knock!

Ask, Seek,, and Knock!

Luke 11:9

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man  who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while  daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”~ Theodore Roosevelt

There are many things I want to be or do in life, but I want to help others do and be as well!  What fun is achievement if you can’t pass it forward or share your success….I want to be spent doing what I was created by my God to do!  This quote by Theodore Roosevelt stirs my soul to shake myself and step out and try once again.  In reality I may not hear success knocking at my door…I may not even know what her knock sounds like as of yet, but by faith,  I can hear her walking up my walkway even now!

Be encouraged my friends….If you’ve asked and  you did not get an answer…Keep Asking… If you’ve sought and have not found what you’re looking for,…Keep Seeking….If you’ve knocked and the door has not been opened unto you…Keep Knocking!

Be Encouraged to Walk on!

Never apologize for who you are!

In the world that we now live in it is so easy to feel like we are running to keep up.  I am involved in a lot of activity, but really I have been stepping back and evaluating what I am actually doing and if I am accomplishing anything that will be lasting.  I wear a lot of hats, but I have been taking a few of them off that I have found unnecessary to wear.  The last thing I want at the end of the day is to have a day wasted doing something that I should not have been participating in and my energy all spent.  It is very easy to become discourage when what you are doing is much larger than what you perceived it would be when going into it.  Honestly, however,  that is usually how I know that I am on the right path.   I also know I am on the right path if I am actually enjoying my walk even though it may be difficult. Also I can feel confident about my path when I know that I am  being led and not driven.  A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. www.biblegateway.com  Life is challenging and the journey may be a little or even a lot difficult at times, but if everything was so easy that I could do it strictly on my own, then I personally believe that it may have just been a good idea and not a “God Idea!.” When you think of how we actually come into the world, it is with struggle, babies struggle to make their way out of the womb and that mother labors to bring that baby into the world! So as I journey, fall and get back up over and over again, I learn.   I am being changed into who I really am!    I have failed many times  when trying to accomplish these larger things of purpose, but  the most important thing is to “GET BACK UP!”  Regardless of how many times you feel like you have tried, if you know that the Lord is in it, just be encouraged to  Walk On!
