Good days, bad days, what's the difference?
We all struggle from time to time and the biggest key to overcoming the bad days is the way we react to them. I get people telling me that I'm always so energetic, positive and motivated. While that is true, it's not 100% of the time. Even on my bad days or days my motivation is gone I still put on a smile, I still get up at 4am to better myself and I still move forward. 💪
You have to have the ambition to get better stuck in your mind. I've fallen off track but dont dwell on the fact that your not there yet, focus on what you have to do today to get back on track. 🔥
You can't shift your mind in park whenever you have a bad day. You have to put it back In drive and no matter how fast your going, your still going forward. 🙌
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, be patient until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and is patient with it until it receives the early and the later rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, because the Lord’s coming is near” (James 5:7-8).
When the circumstances of our lives are filled with hardship and pain, we can easily become distracted and discouraged and begin to lose heart. One of the keys to continue following Jesus faithfully and victoriously is learning to take the long view in our lives. We must learn to live with anticipation of what’s to come.
The people who originally received this letter from James lived every day with the hardship and persecution that came from their decision to follow Jesus. James called them as brothers and sisters in Christ to be patient. Patience in this case is focused around the idea of endurance or long-suffering. Though life was not easy for them, James called them to persevere, to not give up, but to continue to trust in God with what is to come.
To illustrate further, James pointed them to the life of a farmer. “See how the farmer waits” (v.7), James writes. When a farmer plants a seed, he doesn’t instantly see a crop. He has to patiently wait for several months for the seed to grow. The farmer doesn’t control the timing or the volume of the rains. He simply does his part, and entrusts the rest to God. As he waits, he does so with a sense of anticipation that at some point what has been planted will grow and turn into a crop.
