Truth...Plain and Simple
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Going through a valley right now and thankful that I came across a few things that tossed a log or two onto my Spark-fire.
I have choices, I can choose to sit here talking about what "I need to" do, or I can choose to get up and do it.
I can choose to spend my time sitting and bemoaning difficulties and obstacles or I can choose to rise to the challenge of overcoming them to the best of my ablilities.
I can choose to listen to the lies Satan tells me about myself when I temporarily fail in moments of weakness, or I can claim the power of GOD's truth(Eph.1:19-20) over my life and keep seeking his strength to rise to the me I know I truly am and am intended to be. I guess the only thing TRULY standing in my way is not any difficulty or obstacle, it is simply the answer to the question...do I want this? The answer is YES, I want it...and I want it bad. I have determined that for me, difficulties and obstacles of any kind, even the unforeseen and uncontrollable, are simply...excuses. No matter what the circumstances or context, I ALWAYS have a choice to be better, to do better. Thank you Lord for stepping on my proverbial toes, no matter how much it smarts!!!
No excuses. I, without a doubt, want IT bad enough!
