At the well……and today’s topic question is “What motivates you to do the things you do …especially the “good” things you?” Ironically, I have been pondering these thoughts for several weeks – before I knew of the well’s topic today. As I’ve noted before, a new season of life seems to be fast approaching and I’ve thought about, dreamed over and begged God concerning “what do I do with myself???” Truthfully, there are many things I would like to do – lots of “good” things even…and that leads to the question of what motivates me? Most importantly, which of my ideas/plans/goals are God’s plans for me – for surely that should be my real motivation.My life’s verse is:I Peter 1:7 “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:”My faith has been tried with fire….my life forever changed and I marked by the death of my “baby”, Tyler. And what motivates me is to live my life to honor my son and, in doing so, bring “praise, honor and glory” to my savior. Some days are tear-filled… and sometimes the smiles and laughs come easy. Some days the memories are sweet…and the very next day, the same memory is so painful. Some days my purpose is easy to see and follow..and then some days, I live in a fog! However, this verse helps me refocus, to seek God’s direction and, I suppose that is what motivates me!
