Eyes On the Prize – April 23 Inspiration

Eyes on the prize.  That is what I’ve been telling myself the past couple weeks, as my schedule became very busy, and both my hubby and I have been sick! But I do plan to complete my fourth month of blogging here, so I can reach my goal of more consistent blogging, with only a couple weeks missed in March when I was sick and on bed rest, and just under a couple weeks now in April. To help jumpstart things, I am recycling a few posts from earlier this month that didn’t get many views and no comments. Now I will move forward with my eyes on the prize and the rewards of meeting goals and seeing my dreams come to fruition in many areas of my life!

 

 

Here’s your April 23rd inspiration…

 

“We all have times in life

when we feel like giving up…

God gave many men and women in the Bible

difficult tasks to perform,

but He always promised a reward.

Looking to the reward helps us

 to endure the difficulty.

I encourage you not to look

merely at your work,

But look also at the promise of reward.

Take time to enjoy the fruit of your labor, 

and be energized to finish your course.

It will also build confidence

as you realize that you are worth enjoying

the reward of your labors,

and it is indeed God’s will for you.”

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”

My reflections:

I am so thankful that God ,and those people He has placed in my life to be encouragers and supporters, have helped me to NOT give up on my various dreams! I  will continue to keep my eyes on the prize and rewards that await me for goals achieved.

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you find it easy to keep your eyes on the prize ahead of you?

Are you still pursuing your dreams?

  2. I tend put my personal goals on the shelf when life gets too hectic, especially when our kids were little. Now that they are grown, I am learning to let my own goals have the importance they deserve. Most recently, I have been doing the A to Z blog challenge, where you post Mon-Sat, using each letter of the alphabet as the daily inspiration. It has not been easy, but now that I have almost made it through, I have to say – I LOVE the feeling of self accomplishment I have.
    Best wishes for you and your goals!

  3. I love this post. Sometimes I struggle on keeping my eyes on the prize because of the many distractions. I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Its true since anything worth having will most likely require a huge amount of sacrifice and determination so having your eyes on the prize matters a lot. Remain focus and never give up.

  5. Every time I’m faced with a deadline and obstacles I try to focus on the end result. Keeping an eye on the prize is sometimes the best motivation.

  6. I certainly needed this motivation to start my Monday morning. Thank you!

  7. I have to admit I am awful at getting side tracted and going off at a tangent – I need to get better at keeping my eyes on the prize.

  8. This is a really motivating message. Often times people give up on their goals because of the journey that they have to go through. These are the times that we forget about the reward of reaching our goal. It’s good to keep yourself motivated and focus on the reward. So that no matter what hardship you go through, you will never give up.

  9. No I don’t find it easy. Not at all. I work and push through it. With a lot of help from God. Very inspiring as I sometimes forget that God is indeed around.

  10. Keeping your eyes on the prize is key if you are wanting to succeed. I tend to get distracted easily but I’m working on staying focus more now.

  11. I needed this motivation to end my Monday! Thank you so much for such a great post!

  12. Proof that rewards are GOOD. 😉 I try to remember to keep my eye on the prize too.

  13. I love finding inspirationals.

    I think I am steady, but many times I do get weary and God keeps me always.

    And right now I am not pursuing my dreams. I wish I was.

  14. I like this post. Thanks for sharing!
