There will be good days and sometimes it will seem like you can’t avoid the bad ones. While I fully understand and am aware that every day we are blessed to see is truly a blessing, there are some days when I too need encouragement. Some days I just don’t feel like doing anything. Some days I just want to lie back down and not write another encouraging word. On days like today when people would certainly understand why I would take the day off from writing the Morning Cup of Joe, I must put myself aside and realize that this isn’t about me.
You are the reason why I wake up every morning and write an encouraging word. When I initially started on this journey, there were times when I simply wanted to quit. Then I thought about you and wondered what if I was counting on you and you quit on me? I am more than blessed to serve as a vessel of hope for those who need it and those who seek it. When I feel like giving up, I remind myself why I got in the fight in the first place.
Quitting is one of the easiest things to do in the world; it takes absolutely no effort whatsoever. Why do something that is easy when you will most likely appreciate the thing that takes a little more effort. My goal isn’t to change the world as I am not confident that this is even possible. However, a more realistic goal that I have made is to affect one life; yours. If you are moved to change or act based on these words then I am serving my purpose.
When I don’t feel like doing it, I remember you. When I want to take the day off, I remember you. When I feel like giving up, I remember you. When you serve your purpose, the first thing you realize is that it isn’t about you. It is always about the people you are serving. There is someone out there counting on you to simply show up, don’t let them down.
