Shake Off the Dust

"Oh, not just one wish. A whole hatful. Mary, I know what I'm going to do tomorrow, and the next day, and next year, and the year after that. I'm shakin' the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I'm gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Coliseum. Then, I'm comin' back here to go to college and see what they know. And then I'm gonna build things..." --George.
It’s a line out of the most popular Christmas movie of all time, “It’s a Wonderful Life”. I like George’s enthusiasm. I think it’s because I like dreamers and builders. I prefer to hang out with people that see things others miss. People today do not seem to get excited about much, especially things that are spiritual. In this most spiritual time of the year, we need to not curb our enthusiasm...we need to express it. It all starts with our outlook. When was the last morning that you got up and expected things to turn out for your benefit? When was the last time you told yourself, you're awesome? It starts with outlook.
It continues with your uplook. Every good and perfect gift comes from God. Imagine yourself doing the things He desires today and being with the people He wants you to be with. Let positive energy begin to rise up in you. Shake off the dust and start praising the Lord! You can build things too!
