Today's Monday Motivation is brought to you by some gems I found on Instagram. I haven't done Monday Motivation in forever, and I feel like we could all use some this week!! I love this first one:
We are all afraid of the unknown, at least to some extent. But faith that everything will work out is what will keep us sane when those fears try to take over and run our lives. The Bible mentions faith over and over and over again. We MUST have faith that God is in control and will never leave nor forsake us. The devil uses fear to paralyze us and keep us from doing work for God. We must overcome fear with faith.
Forget the plans YOU have laid out for your life. God is the one writing your story and as long as you are focused on Him, you shouldn't worry about anything because He has it all under control. Use your current circumstances to your advantage, no matter how good or bad they are. Bad times create opportunities for growth and learning experiences. Make the best of every day and trust that God is working full-time on the plans He has for you. But at the same time, do not sit back and do nothing. Work and serve for God's kingdom. Most likely when you stop focusing on your problem and start focusing on God and working to serve Him and others, your problems will not seem as big and you'll be too busy to worry about them, and He will work them all out. His plan for your life is better than anything you have planned, so trust that and be calm. (This goes along with my post "Trust Without Borders" from the other day.)
I took some notes during the Sunday service last week, and they kinda went along with all of this.
And lastly, something funny to kick off the week
