EXERT AND EMPLOY

EXERT AND EMPLOY
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
-C.S. Lewis
---
Make some goals …
spiritually, emotionally, mentally, relationally, and physically,
and stick to them.
Create your own opportunities by applying daily disciplines that will move you into a deeper and more committed walk with Christ and change the life you’re presently living.
Whatever hinders you, address it squarely and remove it.
----
Painful, hard, difficult, strenuous
familiarize yourself with these words and develop an attitude of fortitude in the midst of them.
Choose to view your past failures and shortcomings as assets that provide endurance, stamina, and wisdom for your future.
Exert and employ energy in your present and not your past.
Resist the temptation to succumb to self-pity, poor excuses, and immobility.
Refuse to dwell in the company of “settlers” who don’t intend on going anywhere or inspire you to go anywhere.
Open up books and invest and explore the accounts of individuals who inspire you to more and then …
Become more.
God’s word is absolutely paramount in this process;
Start there, and adapt a Bible reading plan that begins to formulate a beginning point for growth and new movement in your life.
Shove off from the dock that keeps you tied to mediocrity and take ownership of the life that Christ desires for you.

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith..."
Hebrews 12:1-2
