Our Daily Bread Designs Bible Verse Thursday Challenge #37 - Get Up, Get Over It!

Great Peace have they who Love Your Law, 
and nothing can make them stumble.
~Psalm 119:165

Each believer has several general tasks and several specific tasks that Jesus has assigned to our duty. 

Some of these are delegated authority, some direct. 
Some opportunities missed might return, but some opportunities missed may never return. 

Can we say honestly, we our doing our complete duty? 
We can never do our duty, until we identify what it is! 
The more effort we give, the better the understanding will develop.

Notice how fleeting the state of man is --- 
yesterday in embryo; 
today opportunity; 
tomorrow regret and unfinished deeds? 

So for what ever time we have, we should know our assignment and exercise all effort to accomplish our purpose.  Live life with a plan, be obedient to that plan -- invest all your efforts with joy, and when the day comes to depart life, -- you can smile. 

As an olive is a bloom on the tree, then a fruit hanging, developing, and then ripping.  We must see that the olive has matured through seasons.  It will be crushed and become a drop of olive oil.  All of this is a process of time. 

We must recognize the season that grew the little olive, the tree that matured it, and the process of time that the Father has planned.  GET OVER IT and GET UP and GO AGAIN.

Why not see this in our walk?
We can develop wrongful, invalid conclusions and values about our assignments by the teachings of society, by the daily menial life at home, by our goals for materialism and business, and by entertainment and emotions that make us feel good. 

The control and manipulation attitudes and spirits try to reign in subtle ways.
The "feel good" mentality that has invaded the camp of God will never stand the TEST OF TIME. 

Pain, bitterness, hurt, and being offended are parts of this process. 
We must develop a strategy to overcome, we are VICTORS not victims. 

Your challenge this week is to create a project using this scripture or another verse that reminds us that our tasks are set upon us by the Lord and it is His work we do.  When uploading your creation, please use keyword ODBDBVT37 and then hop over to the Our Daily Bread Designs Forum to share your work with us!
