SOMETIMES YOU WAKE UP and think to yourself, There’s no reason for me to get out of bed. You have no motivation, no anticipation. Each day feels just like the last.
Remember that you are called to be a disciple, and discipleship carries no expiration date. Your work on earth is not done. Get up, serve, stretch, and grow!
“If any want to beome my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.”
