God is giving me


Accepting each task as a special assignment from the Lord and using all my energies to do it quickly and skillfully.

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before obscure men.
Proverbs 22:29

[Latin. diligentia, from diligo, to love earnestly; di and lego, to choose.]
1. Steady application in business of any kind; constant effort to accomplish what is undertaken; exertion of body or mind without unnecessary delay or sloth; due attention; industry; assiduity.
     Diligence is the philosopher's stone that turns everything into gold


     Brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure.

2 Peter i.

2. Care; heed; heedfulness.
     Keep thy heart with all diligence

Prov. iv

Webster's, 1st ed., 1828
I visualize each task as a special assignment from the Lord; I see myself using all my energies to accomplish it.
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
-- Romans 8:30

My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
-- Psalm 119:48

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
