Soul Food

Get up, get up, get up! Β No more snoozing…let’s get this day started. We have work to do. Someone prayed to God to send some resources — a little human capital, and that means you. So, fuel up. Guzzle down a bottle of water, grab some fruit, and hit the start button on your coffee pot (if you need a little liquid courage).

Today I know that God is going to use me. I might not want to go where he sends me, but I made a vow to be obedient. I challenge all of you to do the same. Open your mind and heart to embrace any opportunity to help a brother or sister in need today. You’re not too poor, too weak, too wealthy, or too busy to do God’s will. If you said the Lord’s Prayer this morning, you already uttered “Thy will be done.” Those aren’t empty words. They’re power-packed, so get ready for a life-changing experience today. Β I can’t wait to hear about your day. Share your testimony in the comments.

Before you get on with your day, add these verses to your fuel pack. May they sustain you for the week (if not a lifetime).

Β For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” ~ Mark 8:36

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” ~1 Peter 4:10

Remember that God loves a cheerful giver. Β Share your gifts with others today, and don’t forget to share this post. Pin it, tweet it, share it and like it. Those simple gifts bless me immensely.

Before you leave, take a few minutes to enjoy my Music Monday selection from Toby Mac (featuring Mandisa and Kirk Franklin). ❀
