Running the race

Today has been characterised by perseverance (Hebrews 10:19-39), Mad Men and knitting. Perseverance to fix my eyes on Jesus, to pray and to read God’s word – even when I’m tired and feeling a bit down. I find that even though it may be a struggle to start, when you delve in it’s always worth it – with drawing closer to God, being energised to live with purpose, and also a source of joy! I’ve come to the end of season 1 of Mad Men, it’s been a beautiful and yet incredibly sad ride. The shots are so well done, but there is so much drinking, and smoking, lying and adultery. The people make out everything is ok, and are masterminds in deceiving others in creating their own image they want to portray to the world. I see that ingenuineness in our world today – even if it’s just saying we’re good when things really aren’t ok. Why struggle through things?

On a happier note, tomorrow I begin to learn how to crotchet the squares for the blanket. And I’m going to make sure that it’s going to be a much more productive day than today. Starting tonight, with a really good sleep, and not waking up tomorrow afternoon – unlike today!

What motivates you to get things done or to do anything for that matter? I ask because I genuinely want to know – these aren’t rhetorical questions.

Until tomorrow,
Your friend Liz : )
