Show up and do the Work

God Gold of the day

After yesterday’s God Gold, I was pumped and excited to get to work today! I can’t begin to explain what took place today, I started my day by praying and surrendering completely to the power of the Holy Spirit. I lifted up all my problems to God fully, and I showed up and did the work. It’s crazy how I always show up and do the work but in this situation I can’t take any credit for showing up and doing the work today. There is no words to explain it but instead of trying to beat my circumstances on my own with my own strength and hard work, I just let go. I gave everything to God, i literally did nothing but stop trying so hard and trusting that the power of the Holy Spirit within me was more than enough to bring out the best of my work. I’ve never worked so hard in my life, I have never felt so confident and felt so much purpose to attack everything with all I had. Once again, I can’t take credit because it wasn’t me that did anything. It was God and God alone!!! I challenge you today to surrender yourself and give everything to God, and put faith to action by showing up, you’ll truly be amazed at how God moves through your life in so many powerful ways! It blows my mind and I’m just so excited for you too to experience the awesomeness of life that takes place when living in complete submission to the Holy Spirit!

I left this quote below that had been driving me lately and pushing me in this lesson! I pray it can be of encouragement to you and notice too how he mentions all the outside noise and tough circumstances you face in life. Something I prayed over constantly today was asking God to block out all the outside noise or only working as hard as the person next to me but to focus in on the work He has set before me and just GOOO!!! Full throttle!!!! It’s amazing how when we take things to God He answers and provides for us so faithfully! Dig into these lessons!!! Show up and do the work!!!

“No matter what anyone says, just show up and do the work.

If they praise you, show up and do the work. 

If they criticize you, show up and do the work.

If no one even notices you, just show up and do the work.

Just keep showing up, doing the work, and leading the way.

Lead with passion.

Fuel up with optimism.

Have faith.

Power up with love.

Maintain hope.

Be stubborn.

Fight the good fight.

Refuse to give up. 

Ignore the critics.

Believe in the impossible.

Show up.

Do the work.

You’ll be glad you did.

True grit leads to true success.

24 year old dude with not a clue what he's doing but God's grace continues to amaze me! Current Seminary student, avid adventure seeker, and getting married to the most humble, weird, and beautiful girl on the planet! Wasted a lot of years living what I thought was the "good life", then Christ showed me what living really is. I pray that my story can somehow help in whatever way possible, to give encouragement and hope that Christ can do the same with you.
