Some day I will…

October 2, 2009 — 9 Comments

Have you ever thought that some day you are going to be faced with and overcome some great challenge and be the hero?  I have… maybe I would be seriously injured in a major accident or develop a serious illness or disease or  something like that.  It would be my opportunity to be the hero and display my strong faith, positive attitude and perseverance.  People would look to me and say, wow!  Surely if he can pull through that, then I too can overcome any challenge.  I dream of one day becoming such a great success, that family, friends, co-workers, business associates and others in the community will be proud of and want to follow me.  I would be their example and hero.

While praying the other day I suddenly became aware of something.  In the midst of the struggles that we now face, with income dropping significantly over the past three years and having to make some tough business decisions, trying to position the company to not just be around but to improve our impact in the community.  And to live out our vision: Together we achieve, protect and strengthen the world. 

I suddenly realized that today is that some day.  While I have not had any serious injury, disease or illness today I do have the opportunity to display my faith and positive attitude and the opportunity to persevere.  If I cannot display these characteristics now, how will I, in the midst of some real struggle.  Not to minimize our struggles, but I am sure you will agree, if it’s a financial struggle we can overcome it… the truth is there is hope in all circumstances.  Especially for those who believe in God and His promises to renew our strength and always be with us.  It’s how we approach it that counts.

Be the hero, do the right thing today.  Display the right attitude today.  Dream big today.  Expect to and overcome whatever it is you are faced with today.  You will succeed and people will be proud of and want to follow you.

You can do it… today!

  1. Hey Robin,

    Kudos on your blog website, really great how info and Seth Godin’s insights are great. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I think that some day is everyday. Every day we have the opportunity to show the world that we have hope no matter what the challenges are because we believe that He who promise is faithful.

  3. Thank you Robin for that message. Like Susan said someday is every day – it’s now – we need to rise up and shine, thank God for our Blessings – look at what we have and not what we have lost or what we could have had. Yes God is good, let us have our Faith take the place of fear and trust in HIM.

  4. Amen… Susan and Ena, thanks for sharing

  5. Amen and amen. What an encouragement to read your words, Daddy 🙂
    To go along the same lines that “some day is everyday”, I’m reminded of the fact that Jesus shed His blood on the cross for us, not for years ago, not for yesterday, but for TODAY. He died so that TODAY we can feel the depths of His love; He died so that TODAY we can walk in freedom and victory; He died so that TODAY we can believe and walk by faith. His mercies are new EVERY morning!!

    Love you!!

  6. Amen… thank you Lappie! Today we have hope because of Him. Love you too!

  7. Robin, living to the full extent today, in terms of honoring God and being obedient to him, is very important since tomorrow is promised to no one. Great message!

  8. I’m with Susan, it’s everyday! I believe where I am, what I am doing everyday is faith. I do try my hardest now to question the things I do not understand, for I know there is a reason. I try everyday to be a better person not only for myself but for others. Robin your someday is today…..so Good Morning!

    • And it does show Jan!
      Thanks for being intentional. Thanks for adding value to those around you. You’re doing great!
