Monday Motivation: From chaos to order

Sometimes when you don’t have any motivation, you just need to do something.

Saturday morning, I felt like laying in bed all day might be the best way to spend my day.

I knew it wouldn’t really be a good idea, but it seemed like one. I prayed for grace to get out of bed, and the Lord gave it. I celebrated taking a shower.

But I wanted to do a little more than that, so I set out to tackle my bookshelf, which has looked like this for the last couple weeks:

After a couple hours of arranging and rearranging, here’s the final product:

Looking at my bookshelf makes me extremely happy, mostly because I am a nerd.

On the bottom shelf we have my sermons from Christ Church and all of my language reference books (for Greek and Russian).

On the next shelf up are all the books I have that I’ve already read.

The third shelf looks more linear, because I want to be able to see what books I have left to read. My goal is to read 50, and I think I have about that many there.

On the top is my Bible study stuff (on the right) and some of my favorite pictures.

Seriously. It makes me so happy.

If you’re feeling unmotivated today, I have a few words of advice.

First: Ask the Lord to give you grace to do the next thing.

Second: Do something small, even if it’s just taking a shower.

Third: Try something big, because the feeling you get when it’s done is awesome.

I hope you guys have a great Monday!

Feels good to accomplish something like that, doesn’t it? And our bookshelves make me happy, too.
