Let me just jump right on in and say: WE HAVE to QUIT believing the LIES that WE tell ourselves!
Oh, you don’t lie to yourself? Really? You just lied.
“I’m NOT GOOD ENOUGH”.
“They’ll think I’m stupid.”
“I’m just a ….. (you fill in the blank.)”
“There’s already a book, blog, song, poem, business like that.”
“I don’t know as much as he/she appears to know.”
Those are just a few of the lies we tell ourselves.
Good grief. Why do we do it? It’s like our own little pity party.
Here’s a thought. When we make excuses like those above, or tell ourselves those lies, we give ourselves an EXCUSE to DO NOTHING.
NO MORE EXCUSES.
See, the GOD who made us IS ABLE.
AND HE IS ABLE TO DO MUCH MORE THAN WE CAN IMAGINE!
If you truly have a relationship with God, then HE is at work IN YOU.
NO MORE EXCUSES.
I am the queen of believing those lies above. I get these BIG DREAMS and even feel like I am called to DO SOMETHING, and then I listen to the lies and even BELIEVE them. Then I say to myself (yes, I quite often have complete conversations in my head with myself. No I am not crazy) : “That author, blogger, speaker, person already did that and mine wouldn’t be half as good.” Now, just who do I think I am?
It is not about ME! When we believe the lies and listen to the lies then we are not Believing who HE is and who we are IN HIM.
Can I get an AMEN?! You too?
A dream is just a dream without a plan, so I’ve heard.
Words are just words without action. Am I right?
Maybe, just maybe, it is a lack of faith that holds us back. We can say we have faith all day long, but when the rubber meets the road, do we really believe TRUTH? Or do we tend to fall back into the trap of believing LIES.
God IS ABLE. He made each one of us with PURPOSE and for a PURPOSE.
What might you be NOT DOING for GOD ?
Are you like me and think that because there is “already something like that out there” that yours isn’t necessary ?
What if because of my obedience, your obedience, just ONE life was changed ?
Ephesians 3:20 ~ Now to HIM who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to HIS power that is at work within us
Until Next Time,
