"'Be strong, all you people of the land,' declares the Lord, and work. For I am with you,' declares the Lord Almighty."

The Hebrew word here for 'work' is Asah - meaning to do, make, work, create accomplish, prepare, obey, offer, sacrifice.

Asah seems to emphasize the fashioning of created objects.

Maybe it's just me. Sometimes I lack motivation. This usually happens when I feel pulled in so many directions that I get stagnate.

This verse today rejuvenated me. It made me remember that I am not in this alone EVER!

God is calling me....and you to get going! Go do what He has created us to do!

Work.

Create something that only you can create. Accomplish something that only you can accomplish. Offer something that only you can offer.

I just got the Mp3 of the opening talk I gave at She Speaks this year,
Staying Encouraged in the Midst of Discouragement.

Maybe it will encourage you today to get up, get going....and work.
