Story of the day: Don’t give up!
Whether you are an artist, athlete, missionary, or fill in the blank, sometimes the things that you are doing may not always work out the first few times that you try.
Even the most talented people may not get it right the first time. In a 1995 interview ex-Beatle Paul McCartney said that he once wrote a song with the first line “Scrambled eggs, oh my baby how I love your legs.”
Have you ever heard that song?
Not likely. McCartney tossed those words and wrote, “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.”
Since then, “Yesterday” has played on the radio more than six million times, more than any other record in history. “Yesterday” also happens to be McCartney’s favorite song. [750 Engaging Illustrations]
Quote of the day: Craig Larson
“The difference between failure and success–between “Scrambled Eggs” and “Yesterday”–is persistence.”
Bible verse of the day: 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NIV)
“Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Discouragement can come easier when nothing seems to be going the way that we plan. Father, I pray to persistently continue on the path that You have chosen for me, regardless of the outcome that I may be expecting. I give myself fully to Your work knowing that my labor is not in vain. Thank You for showing me that being persistent in all that I do for Your Will, will lead me to success. I thank You for this day!
In Jesus Name I pray,
