Sit, Soak and Sour?

Have you ever been to a conference or a training session, sitting and soaking it all in – taking all kinds of notes and have great plans to implement the new ideas?  You come back with a notebook full of ways to improve and ideas to try.

Maybe you read through recipes or get on Pinterest and find all these great ideas and you have soaked it all in with plans to do great things.  You have a basketful of new recipes and so many “pins on the wall” you can’t wait to get started!

Then a day goes by and you think “I will do that this weekend.”  Or “I will implement that new business idea at the start of the quarter”……….then time goes by and all those great things you learned and superior plans to implement are still where you left them.  It’s like a gallon of milk that you purchase and don’t use; it gets pushed to the back of the refrigerator and one day you find it and WOW!!!  It’s gone sour.

That’s the way it is with us sometimes.  We listen to pastors and speakers on Sunday mornings or Saturday evenings.  We go to Christian conferences.  We take notes; we make plans; we know what we need to change to live a better Christian life.  We read our Bible daily and pray for direction.  We have good intentions.  But things get busy and we go back to our old familiar way of living and we become sour.

I encourage you today to look at your life and see what positive change ideas you have tucked away.  What do you need to change today?  What did you learn about God’s plan for your life, the promises He has for you and what you can do for Him?  What do you know but you haven’t implemented yet?  What are you waiting for?  You can sit, soak and sour or you can sit, soak and SOAR!  I want to sit at the feet of Jesus, soak it all in and then soar like an eagle ………..I hope you do, too.

Isaiah 40:31 – But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
