Who Took My Motivation?

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Our discussion was so good this morning at Bible study. The questions our leader asked really made one think about what our "wells" are that replace God at times and how the evil one will use those wells to keep us right there or even deeper into them. Looking forward to seeing what the next week's studies bring.

Once home I cleaned the kitchen before sitting down to do some paid work. Didn't have much, but wanted to keep on top of it as I've got so many files in the works again. I kept hoping motivation would show up, but it never did so I then took a short nap before fixing supper. Tonight Tim and I are watching a movie called "Infinity Chamber". It's interesting and humorous at times.

At some point during the day I heard from Maegann and reality is beginning to set in that she is going to be graduating in about a month's time. Today it hit when she went to the counter with one of her regular clients to reschedule in eight weeks and they couldn't because she will not be there any longer. Bittersweet moment for her!

She got a great photo of the two of them and I liked that you can see her Phase 2 work area (the blue chair to the left). Now she'll have a visual to remember that accomplishment.

Another silly thing I did when I was hanging out was to catch the live feed event for the Raiders. Today it was made official that they are now the Las Vegas Raiders. (They'll always be Oakland to me though.)

It was a simple press conference and I loved that the hard hats all had Raiders logos on them. It was fun seeing some of the players from years past there with the recent ones to celebrate too. That stadium is going to be so amazing once finished.

Tomorrow: laundry (lots of it) and whatever project I choose for a little more "spring" cleaning. Need to get a prioritized list so I catch everything over the next couple of months.

    She is a beautiful young woman !! That amazing smile! Exciting changes coming up for her..and changes for all of you indeed!
    Motivation that what happens when you get started and realize progress is happening?
    I like the saying about ....Within me are two wolves...a good one and a bad one...the one that thrives is the one I feed.
    What we put into our minds and hearts feeds who we are!

    That's kind of like the fact that I still want to call the Chargers, the San Diego Chargers. Las Vegas Raiders just sounds weird.

    I am saying that already tody, "Who or What, has taken my motivation"!!!! I have Co-op today and I don't even want to go there and spend three hours unloading a truck that people are too impatient to wait until the process is complete before they start calling to complain why it isn't finished yet.

    God, give me the strength and the wisdom to do your will at all times today, no matter what the enemy throws at me. I am your child and NOTHING or NOBODY can snatch me out of your hand and I thank You for knowing that and that alone!!! In Jesus' Matchless Name, AMEN!!!!

    BRAVO for Maegann!!!!! Will her customer follow her where she goes? That's what I have done with the lady the cuts my hair. No matter where she goes I follow her because she knows exactly what to do and she's very good at what she does!!!!

    Yes, they will always be Oakland, Raiders to me also!!!!

    Love That bible study question. Great picture of Maegann. Such an exciting and scary new adventure for her. Not scary in bad, just in unknown unseen new life stuff. Can't wait til I have some cleaning decluttering time. I'm sure motivation will show up soon.
