Episode 114: Do it Even if You Don’t Feel Like it.

March 7, 2021

Sometimes we just need some life encouragement to remind us that we aren’t alone! Do you ever have stuff to do on your To Do List that you just don’t feel like doing? Like laundry, and the dishes, and pairing up socks? Well, we have those too, but we also have things that don’t quite make it on our To Do List, but that should! Like apologizing to someone who we have hurt – especially if it is a spouse or our child. Or like exercising, not to be skinny – but to be healthy in our bodies and our minds! There are so many things that we don’t want to do – but most of those things are good for us, good for others, or both! So do stuff even when you don’t feel like it!

Also! We apologize for being such slackers! We have lots of excuses as to why we missed posting a new episode last week, but we will keep MOST of those excuses to ourselves… one of the reasons is that I was in Virginia visiting my sweet friend/work wife, Cassandra! (This is Jihae, not Chris. He does NOT have a work wife!)

Here are some things we talked about in this episode:

Do Not Use Authorized Vehicle for U-Turn on Interstate

Good Word of the Day

14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 

18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

We all struggle with doing stuff that we don’t want to do. If you are struggling – you are not alone! But just cause you don’t want to do something is not reason enough to NOT do it! Our life encouragement for all of us is to Just Do It! (Hey Nike! Would you like to sponsor our podcast??)
