How to stay inspired and focused in 2020

Fragile
You were made for good things, before the dawn of time a plan was written down for you. It may not make you into the biggest, richest or most famous superstar. 
But it's a plan, carefully shaped and formulated just for your personality and being.

No matter what life circumstances you have faced or are facing, the plan still exists.

Many struggle regularly with the thought, "Where do I fit in this universe?" 
"Is my path useless, a waste of time, pointless, with no achievements or bonuses along the way, type of path?" 

With the world now a global community, and the bombardment of every type of issue, opinion and voice, we have found it more difficult to do what really needs doing and ignore that which we cannot do.

This global community has had a profound effect on all humanity. We are busy, torn between voices, propagandas, opinions, issues, circumstances, which we were not designed to be attending to.

Creativity, personal fulfilment and productivity comes at a cost, it requires effort and discipline... it may require you to say NO to the voices badgering you every day.

Hey Presto....Here is my number one way of staying inspired and into fulfilling the plan designed just for you this year.

Say, NO to the things that are not good for you and will limit you in your plans! 

Say NO to watching news broadcasts that you have no power over. 
Say NO to voices which tell you .."You will never make it..you are no good."
Say NO to that extra hour of overtime that will take you away from your family.
Say NO to being selfish and lashing out in anger.
Say NO to unhealthy food that is so easy to grab and put on a plate, instead of planning and cooking a meal.
Say NO to being busy ....and take some time for God, you and your family.
Say NO to that extra vase and you already have 27.
Say NO to excessive time on devices and TV, turn them off for awhile and take a short walk.
Say NO to laziness, get up if you have nothing to do ...join a club help someone, take a friend out for lunch, read, run, dance, paint...
Say NO to.......

You will surely find space to run and be free, and you will create and be fruitful. Trust, believe, hope and pray....

Phil.1.6. And I am sure of this that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

"You called me out into a spacious place where I am free to live and dream and run and not grow weary." 

My images today..

At the hour the sun was lowering in the west... I took my camera and headed to one the Salt Lakes in Inneston National Park. Armed with compasses and torches and landmarks I still managed to get lost. Although the lake is sparse, some thick bush surrounds the entire area.
Snow lake is huge and stretches to the horizon, vast and empty, indeed a spacious place. 

The second salt lake, Inneston Lake, is near the old abandoned village of Inneston. 

Snow Lake.
Old boards lie here and there amongst the sand and the reeds.
Remains of an old fence. Salt lake Inneston
The expanse
The reeds blowing in the breezes of an orange sunset
Wood and reeds
Inneston lake always a shade of turquoise depending on the weather
Salt on the edge
The smoke from the Kangaroo Island fires made for eerie sunsets. The moon turned blood red as it set over the lake.

You called me out into a spacious place where I am free..
