God’s booster cables are specific examples of God’s Word used to jump start the spiritual energy of believers by re-connecting their faith to a source of power greater than themselves. God’s booster cables come from two sources. His Word and His people empowered by His spirit. ELW

“The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.” Norman Vincent Peale

Marie Curie

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” —Marie Curie

slave labor

Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor.” Proverbs 12:24

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1

              Anne Frank     “Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.”      Anne Frank

According to French author Jules Renard, “Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

The best is yet to comeAnd yet, “It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.” Theodore Roosevelt

faith is the key

“Faith is not an instinct. It certainly is not a feeling – feelings don’t help much when you’re in the lions’ den or hanging on a wooden Cross. Faith is not inferred from the happy way things work. It is an act of will, a choice, based on the unbreakable Word of a God who cannot lie, and who showed us what love and obedience and sacrifice mean, in the person of Jesus Christ.” Elizabeth Elliot

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:1 

             tree with roots     “Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.” Stephen Covey

You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis

Doing anything well doesn’t just lead to success—it is success. Real success in life begins with acceptance—acceptance of God’s belief in you as a unique and special person.” Kyle Rote, Jr.

And that you are! Hopefully, you’ve been encouraged and motivated by God’s booster cables. If so, share them with others who need their battery charged!
