John 5:8(NASB)"Jesus *said to him, “Get up, pick up your pallet and walk.”"It was easier to lay there rather than get up and get moving! A few days after I had to give up working on the fire department, I went through the test of getting motivated to keep living life. I found reasons to want to stay in bed all day but there was something wrong about that - life went on, I just had to find the new path of living. Today's Word speaks of one of the miracles performed by Jesus and the words He spoke to the man that was healed. With the recent "stay at home" lifestyle, we may find it difficult to get up and get going. Every day may feel as if its the same as the day before but we must get up, pick ourselves up and walk! We were called for a purpose, created to live life and not just "veg" on the couch. People are counting on us so let us find the strength in Christ, to follow the words Jesus used that day. Deep in my heart I knew that life had changed but that meant a whole new adventure began. What's the new adventure you are taking on with Christ?! peace, tom
