God didn’t give us a cowardly spirit but a spirit of power, love, and good judgment. 2 Timothy 1:7 (GW)
Why am I still here? This is your daily cry as you ponder the deep dissatisfaction with your state in life. Yet, you choose to do nothing about it. You blame everyone else for why you have not accomplished more, only to see deep within that it is not their fault. It is just easier for you not to take the blame. You lash out at those that love you because they see the potential in you and desire to help you move forward. Still yet, you isolate yourself because you feel you don’t have what it takes to be all that you can be. It’s time for a change.
Stop complaining about issues you are not willing to do something about. The truth of the matter is you are afraid, afraid to take the next steps. You are afraid of stepping out and failing. You are afraid of unleashing the real you. Fear of the unknown has you trapped in a cycle you long to break free from. When will you see that you never have to do it alone? You have help available. God has already given you everything that you need to live your best life.
Can’t you see that your life is of great value? Every waking moment, every hour, every second of the day is a precious gift from the Heavenly Father. Don’t waste your time and energy feeling sorry for yourself. You hold the power in your hands to do something about where you are. What you don’t like, change it. You have not even begun to discover the wealth that is on the inside of you. Be intentional when it comes to discovering what is within you! Today is the day! Now is the time for you to move forward with determination and vigor and make your life count. There is greatness on the inside of you!
Father, I pray for my brothers and sisters today that find themselves at the point of giving up. I ask that you infuse them with inner strength. Encourage their hearts to continue even in the midst of challenges. Allow them to see and know the wealth you have placed within them. In Jesus name Amen.
