One Hundred and Ten

Are you familiar with that awesome feeling experienced when you put all your effort and pride into something and it turns out great? It's that feeling you get when you turn in your paper that you worked so hard on, resting in the assurance of a good grade. It's looking over an room you just cleaned meticulously. It's when you hang up that dress shirt you took the time to carefully iron. It's when you know that you've given 110% to something, that you've truly done your best.

Your Best

If you've ever been to any sort of public educational institution, I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "Just do your best." For some reason, that phrase always seems to have the opposite affect. It's laced with lenience. Whenever we hear, "Just do your best", we often just don't. But as Christians, we are charged with the task of putting forth a stellar amount of effort. Colossians 3:23-24 says this, "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ." (KJV) 

Giving it Your All

I want to encourage and challenge someone reading this to start giving tasks your all. Even small, menial task like scrubbing the toilet. You might find that feeling of accomplishment gratifying. 

To read more on this subject, I would recommend the book, Do Hard Things by Alex & Brett Harris. It definitely helped me get a better perspective on challenging myself to do the best I truly can.

Stay classy, ladies. ;)
