Z Is for Zealous

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

1 Corinthians 15:58

 

When I begin to feel tired and discouraged it’s a warning light to me. I’m trying to do things on my own effort instead of relying on God. Jesus said His burden was light, so if I feel burdened, I’m carrying more than He intended.

By contrast, if I follow God’s lead and let Him carry the weight, I find myself rested and refreshed. Then I kick myself for not identifying the problem sooner. Then I find new zeal for the work He has given me. My work becomes a joy and I face each task with enthusiasm. I’m serving the Lord and my work has a purpose!

Take time to check your burden today.

About twice a month I send out a brief email containing free PDF downloads, updates on what projects I’m writing, and insider news on special offers. After all, friends get the best stuff!

You’ll find my brand of humor in many of the emails, especially in funny photos. There is joy in the Lord and we all need to laugh more.

I respect your privacy so I don’t even collect your name (I will need your email address, though!). I don’t like SPAM any more than you do so I’ll never sell or trade your information and my email service, MailChimp, stores your information on secure servers.

If you ever decide my content is not right for you, you can easily unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of each email.

No strings attached. No long-term commitments. No overwhelming volume of emails. Just fun, free downloads once or twice a month. How’s that sound?
