Scripture of the Day

An intelligent person aims at wise action…a fool starts off in many directions. Proverbs 17:24 TEV

Hello sweet friends!  I have missed you!  We are going through some wonderful changes at New Life Network.  We are finally back on schedule!

Everybody wants to be thin, but nobody wans to diet.  Everybody wants more money, but nobody wants more work.  Successful people form the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don’t want to do.  The bookends of success are- commitment and consistency!  Without commitment you’ll never start.  Without consistency you’ll never finish.  Getting started is the hard part.  That’s because we’ve so many reasons not to start.  So here are some helpful suggestions:

1.  Start with yourself!  If you want those around you to respond differently, give them a different set of attitudes and actions to respond to.

2.  Start early! There’s an old saying that Noah didn’t wait for his ship to come in; he built one!  Hard work is just an accumulation of the easy things you didn’t do when you should have.  The truth is the work doesn’t seem quite so hard when you stop putting it off.

3.  Start Small!  Just take the first step.  You can’t do step two until you’ve done step one.  Taking the first step to prioritize your life focuses you in the right direction.  Don’t expect to understand all that’s required.  Listen: “By Faith Abraham…..went out, not knowing”  (Hebrews 11:8).  You’ll know
as you go!  Just take the first step.

4.  Start now!  What are you waiting for?   Until you finish school? Get married?  Have kids?  Your kids leave?  You retire?  You die?  If you wait long enough you’ll have only one regret–that you didn’t start now.
