Prayer for Motivation

while you sit

twiddling thumbs

life is wasting

there on your bum

you should get

up off that phone

and live a dream

wander, roam

take a class

read a book

learn to skate

learn to cook

walk, run, jump


love yourself

become so wise

life is just

a blink away

and when you meet

that very last day

will you look back

and say, well done

you did stuff

and you had fun

or will you think

about lazy you

that didn’t even do

one single do

on a list

up in your head

that no one saw

or no one read

that crazy list

of, yeah, I will

but not today

I’ll simply fill

this twenty-four

with sit and rest

and look at feeds

and scoff and jest

and drone myself

into a mess

of complete addiction

to nothing less

but ones and zeros

set up to fool

any common

any mule

make today

one of control

make today

a brand new role

snap right out

of your lazy routine

where 4 or 5 hours

your face is green

that phone is bleeding

your mind away

so go have fun

go and play

and lock that phone

into a space

away from you

a distant place

and motivate yourself

to tremendous greatness

the possibilities are simply

limitless, weightless

not bogged down

by a sick addiction

no one sees it

it’s a sneaky affliction

until your phone displays

your average time

and your eyes bulge out

oh no! not fine!

how did I see

that horrible number

makes me feel

a slumpy wonder

I must amend

I must change

become brand new

and rearrange

Motivate myself

my daily routine

and put away

that addiction screen.


Sometimes happy and fun distractions can be the most detrimental in our lives, days pass by too quickly, when time flies by so quickly anyway.

Take time to engage with others, get off your silly phones and look around and see the beautiful world God created.  Staring at options, or things that could be, when all of your beautiful realities are just wasting away, collecting dust or simply lost because you paid no attention to them or it.

God is so good.  Pray for motivation and peace in your daily routines.  Snap out of the addiction you have with your phone and promise yourself that you will limit your screen time to just emergencies.

Go for an awesome walk today, grab a coffee with a friend and leave your phone at home, go shopping at your favorite store, bake Cookies from a recipe in a book, just leave your phone locked up in a place where you can forget about it for a day or two.

If you have decided to work out as a substitute to your phone time, that is PERFECT!  Get to it!  ENJOY the endorphins that come from a great sweaty workout!  That is the perfect substitute.  Eat healthy today, love your God, and Love yourself.  Amen!

Proverbs of Solomon

Proverbs 10: 1-4

A wise son brings joy to his father,
    but a foolish son brings grief to his mother.

Ill-gotten treasures have no lasting value,
    but righteousness delivers from death.

The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,
    but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.

Lazy hands make for poverty,
    but diligent hands bring wealth
