Keep your eyes on the prize. That is what I’ve been telling myself whenever my schedule becomes very busy and I seem to have more to accomplish than hours in the day to successfully complete all the tasks on my action list! But I do plan to 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! AND here’s a twist on the idea of a prize: Read to the end of my post to learn about YOUR opportunity to enter a contest and win a prize of your own: a handmade pillow! 🙂
Here’s your Sunday 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”
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?
