The purpose of this post is to give you a little mid-week motivation. My hope is that today’s message will give you just what you need to gently nudge you over the hump. Each Wednesday you’ll see something spiritually nourishing on the menu to sustain you as you journey through the rest of the week. There are no calories on this menu, but  the nuggets of wisdom you ingest will satisfy you — taste and see.

Eat well, and visit The Malone Zone each Wednesday!

Isaiah 43:4 reminds us that we are precious and honored in God’s sight. If he feels that way, who are we to think otherwise?

Do you feel swamped? No end in sight for the paperwork, tasks, and all the minutiae associated with your busy life?  Guess what?  You’re not alone! If your desk is anything like mine, it’s a mess.  Remember my post from a few weeks ago–I Got 99 Problems? Yeah, I still have those three distinct piles on my desk, yet I’m not worried. I’m not even stressed out.

You’ve made it this far — Hump Day, so cut yourself some slack.

I have decided that I can only do as much as I can do. Yes, I have deadlines like everyone else, but I will not let them consume me. We’re all flawed, and the Father loves us still. If he can love us despite our flaws, shouldn’t we love ourselves too — flaws and all?

So, let’s clear the clutter from our minds. Take a brisk walk, grab a healthy snack and plan to tackle one or two of your looming deadlines today.  Everything else can wait until tomorrow. No buts — just follow my lead.
