Be Excited About Your Guest of Honor!

When is the last time that you planned a dinner party or gathering at your home? After all of the planning is complete, we tend to get a bit excited about receiving our guests. I know that I do. It’s been a while since I’ve had one but as I begin to plan a girls night in for my 45th birthday, I’m just giddy about it. I love to hear party planners share their excitement associated with pleasing their client and all of their guests. I’ve never met a party planner that was NOT excited about receiving the guests. The excitement comes from expectation.

I’m expecting to hear updates from my guests. I’m expecting them to have a good time and to feast on what I decide to prepare. I expect laughs and warm hugs. I expect a celebration! Who wants to go to a lukewarm gathering? I don’t! And neither does Jesus!

Kick the doom and the gloom to the curb. Let’s be excited about Jesus dining with us. Behold, he stands at the door and knocks. You hear your divine purpose knocking. You hear daily reminders knocking. You hear discipline knocking. You hear the knock. Your guest of honor has arrived. He wants to dine with you. Dining is a symbol of trust, affection, intimacy and loyalty! Be excited about your guest of honor!

DON’T LOSE YOUR MOMENTUM

Join me today re-establishing your momentum!

Life can get in the way and we can easily lose our enthusiasm and excitement. The worst thing that we can do is forget why we are living and/or forget how much we must be grateful for! There is positively absolutely no reason for us to walk around on auto pilot with little to no spunk. We will not sink into a state of being dreary, dull or blasé.

Our momentum has everything to do with our inner being and how well we are taking care of it. While hubby and I are currently on the hunt to find the “perfect” home to purchase, we are learning a lot. While it’s great to have awesome curb appeal, we are more concerned about what is on the inside. In the words of my husband, “we live on the inside, not the outside, right?”. I begin to think about that in a spiritual sense. Our spirits are internal, and we must be more concerned with taking care of them than we are about the external. There are plenty of people walking around dressing up a hot mess. They are photo shoot ready on the outside but a complete wreck on the inside. When we take care of what’s on the inside, we can gain momentum in this marathon.

Re-establish your momentum. Discover your rhythm. Find your energy. Get more sleep. Worry less. Pray more. Laugh a lot and loudly. Go dancing. Go roller skating. Go on a hike and marvel at the works of God’s hands. Do what you must do, I beg you. Your life depends on it. Re-claim your momentum!
