The quote of the day for Monday, July 18, 2016.
It is only through labor and prayerful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.” – Theodore Roosevelt
I can want better all day long – but until I choose better and I do better I will be no closer to that better that I want.
It has to be more than wanting.
It has to be more than wishing.
It has to be more than dreaming.
Getting to that place of better things for my life and in my life will require that I take action to make it happen.
It will require my labor – because action takes effort.
It will require my prayer – because I need to be focused on the better direction to make the better things happen.
It will require my energy – because everything that I encounter in every day requires a piece of my resources.
It will require my courage – because stepping out into my new, better things will be different from my existing things and different requires a dose of courage.
Will you dare to choose better?
