The ONE THING for today

A swift kick in the pants

  • imagesHebrews 12:6 (NLT) For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.

Be thankful when God sends a swift kick in the pants. Be thankful for the wake-up call, the just hard enough slap that gets your attention, the trip-up that is a set up for a fresh start.

Why be thankful? Because these are special gifts that get you moving again; they startle you and shake you out of your complacency.

You see, complacency is a virus and left uncheck, it gradually immobilizes you and numbs you into believing that everything is OK, that it will always be like it is today.

In the meantime, love and opportunity silently slips out of the room and one day you come to your senses and all you’re left with is memories.
