James 1:22-25 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Uggghhh! We're so lazy sometimes! One thing that has really been on our hearts recently is doing more doing and less talking about doing! God wants us to be doers not talkers.
God has a specific purpose for our lives at such a time as this. Let's start giving Him our all. There's so much work to be done!
