Not Wanting to DO THE THINGS I HAVE TO DO

My flesh and my spirit are as different as night and day. In my spirit, I desire to work hard, to stay focused on the things that matter. However, my flesh “doesn’t feel like it today”. I make these excuses: “I’m too tired”, “I don’t have enough time”, “I’m not strong enough yet.”

The Bible talks about how the flesh and the spirit are in conflict with each other. They always will be, but I have to make the conscious choice to live in the spirit and not gratify my flesh. I have been filled with the spirit, and therefore I have to live under the unction of that spirit.

I have to work out, even when I don’t feel like it. I have to keep my blog updated, even when I don’t feel like it. I have to share my faith with others, even when I don’t feel like it. I have to be generous with my time and resources, helping my friends and my family, even when I don’t feel like it. It’s easier said than done, but it CAN be done.

My name is George Gordy. I'm stuck in a hole and I'm trying to get out of it. So I made this blog.
