How to Stay Motivated When You’re Fatigued – Daily Devotional

June 12th, 2008

How to Stay Motivated When You’re Fatigued by Rick Warren

Like an open city with no defenses is the man with no check on his feelings. Proverbs 25:28 (NAB)

*** *** *** ***

It’s not unusual for people to become disillusioned, discouraged, and fatigued about halfway into a difficult challenge. When I start to feel the fatigue, I look to Proverbs 25 and remember that my feelings are not a reliable measure of how things are going.

We’re to trust wholeheartedly in God and put no faith in our own perceptions (based on Proverbs 3:5 NJB).

Our feelings come from a variety of sources – past, present, and future. But feelings often lie; they’re not always a reflection of reality. Plus, life is complex and we must often live with mixed feelings: “Even in laughter the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief” (Proverbs 14:13 NIV).People often compare life to a roller coaster of hills and valleys, but actually life is more like two rails on a railroad track. One rail represents the good and positive in your life; the other represents the bad and painful in your life.

You’ll always have both at the same time! There will always be something good and something bad happening in your life. We can’t expect everything to be good for one month and then everything to be bad the next month. There’s always a mixture of both, a blending of both bitter and sweet.

However, we can choose the focus: “When others are happy, be happy with them. If they are sad, share their sorrow” (Romans 12:15 NLT).

Reminders… Marcia June 10

June 11th, 2008
Don’t forget the Parent Meeting tonight at the Theatre in the Lobby at 6:30pm. We will be talking about the help we need for Ushers, Wranglers, Dressing Rooms and bringing bottled water for the Shows. Please make your plans to attend Parents and siblings 15 yrs or older.

Also, on Wednesday night we will be painting set pieces in the scene shop and anyone that can help we would greatly appreciate. We will work from 6:30p to 9 or 9:30pm.

Resist discouragement

June 9th, 2008

Resist discouragement

by Rick Warren

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3 (NIV)

*** *** *** ***

As a pastor, I’m sure many of you are discouraged.

Some of you are discouraged over your children that their lives are not going well. Some of you are discouraged about your marriage; it’s not at all what you thought it would be. You feel deflated and disappointed.

Some of you are discouraged about your finances, or your health, or the economy, or an unanswered prayer.

I want to say something to you, and it may sound mean, but it isn’t. It’s simply truth, so I say this in love: If you’re discouraged, that’s your choice.

We make a choice to be discouraged. We make a choice to let discouraging thoughts move freely through our minds. But, we can also make a choice to change our thoughts at any time, taking them captive in the Lord.

You get to choose what to focus on – your purpose or your problems, God’s power or your weakness, or your circumstances.We can fight discouragement. Here’s a tip to help: When you get discouraged, focus somewhere else. Say to yourself, “I don’t have time to be discouraged right now. I’m too busy fulfilling my life mission.”

This doesn’t mean you should be a Pollyanna and pretend everything is okay. You can be realistic, but you also need to be optimistic because you are a Christian: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13 NIV). God says, “Lo, I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20 KJV). He will help you and he will strengthen you. Faith starts with optimism.

Some of you have been praying for something specific and you haven’t yet gotten the answer. In Habbakuk 2:3 (NLT), God says, “These things I plan [for your life] won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place.”

Just be patient. The answer you’re waiting for will not be overdue a single day. God’s timing is always perfect.

At Saddleback, we claimed this verse from Habbakuk for 13 years. We were growing bigger and bigger, but we still didn’t have the land we needed to build a worship center. We’d tell God, “Everybody else has a building. How come we don’t have a building?”

After 13 years, God answered our prayer – and we realized he had a much bigger plan than we did. The property we built on was not even available when we first started Saddleback. There weren’t even roads leading to the property. God had a plan and slowly, steadily, surely he began to fulfill his vision.© 2008 Rick Warren. All rights reserved.

Ballet Memo …Parks June 6

June 7th, 2008

Cindy has asked that the girls in the Ballet meet at the Theatre on Tuesday to rehearse upstairs in the large dressing room from 5p to 5:30p. Then the girls in the Potiphar number, including Marissa, meet at 5:30p to rehearse the tap number until 6p. Please do not come through the Auditorium. Go down the hallway, behind stage and through the scene shop and then upstairs.

Don’t forget, we need to tweek these numbers  a little bit.

Thanks
