More than A Motto

It’s Pop Quiz Wednesday! (Wait, don’t go… this will be easy, I promise.)

Quick… Name the company that goes with the following mottos/slogans:

1. “Just Do It.”

2. “Finger lickin’ Good.”

3. “It’s Everywhere you want to be.”

 4. “Can you hear me now?”

5. “I’m loving it.”

Got your answers? Nike, KFC, Visa, Verizon, McDonalds. See,  I told you it was easy.

Here’s the thing, world. I really don’t want to write today. My brain, body and spirit are smuh-oked tired right now, so I wanted to think of something that would use minimal brain power. If we are being perfectly honest, I don’t really have the motivation to do much more of anything today– I am ready for a bath, beer and comfy clothes. (For those of you keeping track of my health: Please note that I try to blog the night prior to the morning that I post… So yes, it is after 5pm on Tuesday. Don’t get all stressed out about me drinking a cold brewsky with my Cheerios.)

Anywho, my brain is rather spent, so forming coherent sentences at this point is about as productive as asking me to run a marathon. Exhausting to think about. See, now I am just rambling. Sigh.

Ok, back to my point. Today, I would like to simply share with you MY life motto. While my motto isn’t quite as catchy or as well-known as some of those listed above, it keeps me going everyday. Ready? Here it is:

Whatcha think? I am personally a big fan. (And also pretty biased.) It keeps me going when my brain, body and spirit are simply spent.

Do you have a motto, verse or phrase to live by? I would L-O-V-E to hear it. Please comment here and let’s get a stellar conversation going.

“The one who called you is faithful and He will do it.” Powerful stuff, huh? That simple biblical phrase shows my motivation, my heart, my mission… Yes, folks it is much more than a motto.

Answering the Call One Rambling-ish Post at a time,

“He will set things right. That’s when Judah will be secure and Jerusalem live in safety. The motto for the city will be, “God Has Set Things Right for Us.”– Jeremiah 33:16 (MSG)

10 thoughts on “More than A Motto

  1. “Live a life of love.” from Ephesians 5:2. 🙂

  2. Mamma Lex

    Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

    • That’s a great one, Ma… No wonder you are pretty unshakable having two sons in the military! (Sidenote: I wonder if one of your spiritual gifts is faith… I bet Brandon got that from you!)

  3. “Cada dia es nuevo” – Every day is new. Sounds a bit corny, but given some of my current struggles, it’s what keeps me trying anew every day, no matter what happened yesterday.

    • Love this, Morgan– creative and cultural. I don’t think it’s corny at all– instead, it inspires hope that each day we get to start fresh with Jesus 🙂

  4. Bekah

    For God does not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of love, power, and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

    • Hmm… love and sound mind without fear– certainly sounds like you my little Bekah, especially after the last few months. I can see Jesus shining through you with your courage!

  5. Lately…”cause everybody dies but not everybody lives.” A little too much Nicki Minaj while I work out? Probably. But I like what it says.

    • That is wonderful, Katie– and oh-so-true. Personally, I believe that is a wonderful and very motivating motto. Great choice and blessings to you!

I'd love to hear from you. Comment here.
