Morning Reflection: “Time to Get Busy” - Doing God’s work in Spirit and in Truth …” See my Note…
Good morning. Great is His faithfulness.
TIME TO GET BUSY
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
NOTE- my thoughts
"We are to please God and not the pleasures of this world. There is a difference between nice and kindness, nice is done out of perception on how someone wants to be perceived, meaning nice checks a block but falls short of true kindness. Kindness on the other hand is the opposite of nice because kindness is an action done out of the heart with no perceptions or other motives attached. Our walk with God is the same we should be all in and do it with our whole hearts and our only true intentions should be to be please God by doing His Will and imitating His kindness and mercy to all."
(JPCE SPIRITUAL TALK - JARED W CAMPBELL MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS)
"Actions springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility."
Living Before God Our Father
13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
"Like a soldier who pepares his mind, body and soul for war -combat. As Christians we are to prepare the same way for the kingdom of heaven, we are all scribes and disciples being prepared and molded into fishers of men. We are to find all kinds of fish and Jesus will sort them all out in the end when He separates the righteous from the wicked. So rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought up to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
"Logic will not change an emotion, but action will."

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER FROM THE
When I have work that needs to be done, do I usually try to finish the work as soon as possible, or do I put it off? See my video for answers and discussion.
Do I believe that my testimony is more power when actions accompany my words? A great testimony comes from great actions my answer is this I listen more to those who live by actions and less by great words. God is more than a feeling or an emotion like a spare of the moment feeling, He is a relationship that is expressed by actions by our good works and good deeds. We are to love and forgive and keep pressing towards the greatness of GOD.
Do I see the hypocrisy in saying one thing and doing another, and do I try my best to act in accordance with my beliefs? If there is one thing I can't stand the most and that is hypocrisy and those who say do what I say and not as I do. Real leaders seek the truth and shun out true hypocrisy, so live by the God's Word, shun evil and do good always.
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
