Retired pastor, Jack Freed, is the author of my favorite blog – Jack’s Winning Words – and his daily quotes often provide the inspiration for many of my posts. Jack spent a week in the hospital recently because of a spider bite that became infected. He’s out and posting to his blog again and this was one of his posts this week, which I re-blog here in it’s entirety:
“I am totally lacking the ‘zippity’ part of my ‘do dah’ day.” (Sent by PZ) I laughed at this one, because I know what it is to lose your zip. Pete Seeger sang, “My get up and go has got up and went.” Pete continues, “I’m able to grin when I think where my get up has been…But I’ll stick around to see what is next.” That’s good philosophy when the do-dah-day isn’t going so well. Celebrate the memories and say with Scarlett, “Tomorrow is another day.” 😉 Jack
We all have days where our get up and go seems to have left without us, as Pete Seeger sang. Some days we awaken in the morning and just don’t feel like getting out of bed to face the day. Low energy days like that can be depressing if we let them. It is mornings like that where you feel like turning to God and saying, “A little help here, God.”
That quick little prayer can make the difference in your day and provide you with a shot of energy much sooner and better than downing an energy drink. Nothing can put the zippity day in your do-dah day more than knowing that you are starting it with God at your side. What can life throw at you that He can’t help you handle?
So start today and every day by awakening the power of God in your life and you will be able to approach the day like the kids in this Disney movie clip.
Have a zippity do-dah day!
