EARNESTLY REPAIRED

EARNESTLY REPAIRED
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.
-Norman Vincent Peale

One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested.
-Anonymous

Success is the ability to move from one failure to another without loss of enthusiasm.
-Ascribed to Winston Churchill 
------
A zealous spark composed his industrious frame ...
 and this is what enlarged and set him apart.
A cadence of creative virtue worked magically through him, in sync with adversity, showcasing an unearthly composition at work within.
Where others grumbled, griped, complained, and blamed, this one squared the shoulders resolutely, fixed himself positively and determinedly, and labored energetically.
O how my soul loved him.
An internal inferno of holy, healing, energizing, radiant passion suggesting potentiality to all things placed before him.
An individual composed of that flaming virtue called enthusiasm which, when knocked about, stands ardently with an empowerment skilled to deride and counter the harshest effects of negativity.
Resilient and beautiful,
Such energy fuels me.
Such individuals inspire me.
Baruch earnestly repaired the busted, broken, ruined walls of God's temple and emerged markedly different from the others. Consider all the other "wall builders" and prepare yourself for mild monotony with a yawn, followed by a spark of enthusiastic positivity.
Read the entirety of Nehemiah 3, recreate the scene, and consider the man you should like to stand by.
Consider the man "you" would like to be.
------
In engaging with individuals charged with life,
We come alive.
Shoulder beside that which you desire to become and live again.

"After him Baruch the son of Zabbai earnestly repaired the other piece, from the turning of the wall unto the door of the house of Eliashib the high priest."
Nehemiah 3:20
