Last week, I was cleaning up some stuff in my office, and reorganizing my mind at work when I stumble upon some old word magnets I used to use for inspiration. I had taken them down in frustration a few years ago when I was feeling very selfish and uninspired. But last week I put them back up and I hope they will spark you either by what they say, or maybe you will find some words that motivate you through out the day.
The words on the magnetic – Today: live, give, reach, do and solve are simple verbs to help remind me of how I should be spending my day , today.
- Live the day to the fullest
- Give to others
- Reach out to others
- Do what needs to be done
- Solve problems with creativity
That’s a pretty good list. Those simple verbs are just enough to give me a reminder with each email, instant message and choice throughout the day of my potential impact on others and they help focus me to make sure that I am getting the most out of each day.
Yes, yes, a little cheesy, but whatever it takes to keep the days moving in the right direction!
So with that a few simple short and powerful verses to get your going on Monday!
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.Psalm 90:12
Each man’s life is but a breath.
Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro:
He bustles about, but only in vain;
he heaps up wealth not knowing who will get it. Psalm 39:5-6
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.John 10:10 ESV
A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor. Proverbs 22:9
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.Ephesians 4:32
