Thoughts - August 9, 2016

"When a man is willing and eager, God joins in." Aeschylus

Sometimes that is actually my prayer....."God, grant me some enthusiasm here"......you know?! The above quote resonates with me because I know how true it is in my own life. It takes that same eagerness that comes about when I'm doing something fun and special, an excitement that isn't there as often as it used to be? Now the "willingness" is not so hard, at least for me. I can plod and plow myself through many a project. I can put myself into rote-mode and do all kinds of good and Godly tasks. But....when I'm eager, when I'm right where I'm meant to be, when the Spirit joins in....now that makes all the difference! It is no longer "me." It is "Us." Eager - who knew it was such a powerful word?! - Beth Almond Ford
