Playlist #2

Another song on my playlist is Shine by Newsboys.

You hear your heart start asking,
"What's my motivation?"

I love jogging to this song.  It's upbeat and that part gives me the encouragement to push through and keep jogging.  I ask 'What's my motivation?'

My motivation?  God and being obedient to Him.  He's called me to jog.  The old me doesn't want to jog.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

It's amazing, listening to this song, I can push through.  Get to the point to really jog.  I want to stop.  I want to say it's to soon to do a steady jog, I need to walk another minute.  Push through to that place where I am at a steady pace.  I slow pace, mind you I wouldn't win any races.  It's a jog, its a slow pace, it's a place where I could go on longer than I imagined.  It's my motivation that God has a goal for me.  He wants me to stick to it.  He doesn't want me to tweak it, to make it my own.  He wants it to be His.  He wants me to obey.  I get the joy of knowing I obeyed, that I am healthier for the jog and next time I can go longer, do more.

God is my motivation.  Wanting to do what pleases Him.  I spent so much of my life pleasing me only to be unhappy, anxious and depressed.  Spending time with God and learning what He's calling me to do (not what He's calling you to do) and how He's calling me to do it is the best way to spend my life. 


  1. I'm trying so hard to pray through and change my motivation. I realized recently that my motivation had changed and was more about the scale than it ever should be. Thanks for this great post...it served as confirmation to me!!!

    Keep up the great work.

    1. Thank you! It is a daily choice I have to make. Just yesterday I had to review the goals and lack of exercise before me and see God in it. What is He calling me to do? Answer: I told you a couple years ago, nothing has changed...so I'm going back to a simple routine and get Biggest Loser from my head, LOL.


I love to hear what you think, please share in the conversation.
