I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. (II Timothy 4:7)
There is a famous shoe company who’s motto is: Just Do It!
Well maybe that works in the sports arena, but it gets a little tougher when it comes to life. It seems like sometimes the older we get, the more cynical we become towards life. That’s exactly what Satan would want! The devil throws disappointment our way for that very reason. He doesn’t need to turn us into satanists, just get us whiney, weepy, and wimpy. So here is a reminder of a different kind of life motto: “Just Do It Anyway”
People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for the underdog anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help, but may attack you if you help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you’ve got and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

I guess I’ll blog about my daily devotions. People let the pride get the best of them, this is a great reminder for us all that life is disappointing, so you don’t have to keep whining about it. Grab your work by the neck, hold tight, if it slips, hold it again. Just do it anyway. God Bless us All 🙂
