There comes a point in all of our lives when we need to Hurry up and R.E.L.A.X.
R – Release
Simply put, there are some things in our lives that we need to release. Nothing productive comes from doing that which you are not supposed to be doing. Nothing! Be it bad habits, or negative people, make sure you recognize them for what they are and release them from your life.
E – Encourage
Encouragement goes a long way. When we encourage others we give them the extra push they need to keep going. Think about a time where you were at the end of your hope, where you wanted to give up and then received an encouraging word. This may have been the difference maker; the one thing that propelled you to keep going. Finally, if all else fails, encourage yourself.
L – Lighten
Lighten the load for someone else. Find someone to be successful for, and do something to enrich their lives and make their walk easier. Why should you? Jesus did it for you!
A – Attempt
Attempt something great each week, at least. Dare to attempt something that scares you. This is where greatness lies. Nelson Mandela said it this way, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
X – X-ray
To X-ray is to examine. An X-ray allows you to see beyond the surface, exposing things that are critical but aren’t seen by the naked eye alone. We need to X-ray ourselves. Dig deep and discover who you really are. What makes you, you?
With God, nothing is impossible…
