I was searching for inspiration this morning, determined to break out of the lull in my blog posting. My life got a little busy and then went off in directions that distracted me from making the effort to write for this blog. I missed it and decided it was time to get back to posting. I keep a list of inspirational quote on my PC desktop, so I perused that this morning. two entries in that list caught my eye as being things that should be linked together in a post. They are:
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Do or do not. There is no try.” —Yoda
What strange bedfellows Emerson and Yoda, yet thinking of those two quote together seemed natural. How often we hear people say, “I’m trying to be a better person.” That person needs to heed Emerson’s and Yoda’s advice and decide to just do it, not to just try.
IF you find that you need a little boost of confidence each morning to help you achieve your destiny, perhaps this little verse will help.
Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
So make the decision and define your destiny, then get to it.
