When life takes a turn, it's easy to lose our enthusiasm, especially when things once easily taken for granted, lose their grip. Our world is accelerating at such a speed, it's hard to keep up. The Angel of Enthusiasm encourages us to make a choice not to let fear, doubt, and despair block our joy in everyday life.
I found this faded photo of Mom on the farm holding the reins of a stubborn bull, refusing to budge. It brought back memories of how she could find humor during a challenge. Rather than let fear take hold, she would take the bull by the horns, and with faith lead it down the road to victory. Things always had a way of working out for the best. Like that old saying: The problem didn't come to stay. It came to pass.
A good way to jump-start enthusiasm is to sing. Singing revitalizes our spirit.
It's good to remember, ENTHUSIASM is a choice.
Even when we don't feel like it, we can choose to be helpful, positive, and flexible. We can pray for more strength, courage, and peace. Scripture teaches in all circumstances, to give thanks. Take time to remember how God delivered you in the past, and speak favor over your current situation.
