Get ‘Er Done!


My one-word for 2015 was “discipline.” I spent the year doing Bible studies on self-discipline. I know what I have to do.

Thus, 2015 was my least disciplined year in a long time. More procrastination, more stuff undone.


Coming up on 2016, I asked:

Lord, what’s my topic for 2016?

I got my answer.

Finish it! Stop studying and start doing. Get ‘er done!

Or Biblically:

2 Corinthians 8:10  (MSG)
So here’s what I think: The best thing you can do right now is to finish what you started last year and not let those good intentions grow stale. bless resolute

  1. Good morning Shirlee! I am excited to start the new year off as one of your subscribers! Love your format and messages! : ) I’m sitting here, keeping an eye on my dog, who was spayed yesterday, and thinking about how good God is. He has given me time (breaks…during the hurry, scurry of the day) to spend with him…or choose other things. I’ve just realized, that when I feel a little bored or anxious….maybe that’s him ….nudging me…. “Angela, sit down and spend time with ME.” In 2016, I hope to do a better job of being sensitive to Him. Your devotionals are helping me already! Thank you and God bless! Happy New Year Sister!

    (Marvelous Monday!)

      Welcome Angela! Don’t we all need to sit down and spend time with our Lord. There’s no better goal for the new year.

  2. I figure that what I don’t finish here will be waiting for me in Heaven.

    And what would Heaven be without work and challenges?

      I’ve thought about that, Andrew. I wonder if the words will just flow off our fingertips, or will some editing still be required? I also wonder if the laws of aerodynamics are the same, or will you have to tweak the structure of your plane?
