Help me not be shabby

God is solid backing to a well-lived life,
but he calls into question a shabby performance.

Psalm 19:14

"May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer."

(New Living Translation)

This is today's verse. In the few minutes that I've been thinking over it I realize that at times when I get overwhelmed I get crabby and whine or complain...... this verse is going to be my challenge to myself this week that the words that come from my mouth AND the things I have in my heart will be PLEASING to my God- because He is my ROCK and my REDEEMER!

Weary? Nah!

Galatians 6:9-10 (The Message)

So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.
