I wanted to share my thoughts on being determined in whatever it is you want to do. You have to know that "NO" does not mean not so, nor be an option. You may think that your project, progress, or promise will never come, but it is up to you to see to it that it does. Whatever you need to accomplish it, it is within you, as well as your helper and guide; the Greater one. Your focus must be totally on that situation at the given time it is sort after, and remain there on completion. There has to be a focus and a consistency to stay with whatever you have set your mind to pursue.
Anything that is worth anything to you is worth doing anything necessary and righteous, until you obtain it. You must tear down "all" barriers, hindrances and walls of limitations from your mindset that tells you it could not or will not be done. Be persistent to fight the good fight of faith to see that you are on target with your views and goals. There are qualities hidden in you that want to come out but you have not allowed them the opportunity. You think that it is not you but I am here to tell you that it is in you. Your gifts are peeping and screaming, let me out, I can do it, I know the answer, and the likes.
Instead of acknowledging the strength within, you try to use head knowledge to justify why you cannot, rather than using the God-given wisdom of yes I can and yes I will. Fear and doubt sometimes cloud your judgment, which causes you to get confused. You will and can do whatever you say, when you are ready to stop the thoughts of, I don not know if I can. Your abilities get stronger the moment you recognize that it is not you who is doing it anyway. Get out of the way and allow the Lord to enter, into His fullness within and with you. When you allow the task at hand to appear small to the great talent and gift you have, it will become like drinking water, refreshing.
I challenge you today to take the breaks off and do what you need to do, should do, want to do and have not been able to do. Take a leap of faith, take the risk in being different and to look not back on the days and years of, I should have or could have; yet knowing that you must have the will, passion and desire, with the power to attack it head on, from this day forward. You must recognize your potentials, weaknesses and strengths. Make up your mind and find the time to go after what it is you desire, and do not stop until you obtain it. You are a winner with Christ in whatever you put your hands to. He will not fail you-NO MATTER WHAT. The champ is in you for you are His “Champion."
A QUOTE: You must realize that whatever you consider important may "NEVER" be considered important to someone else, so you must find the determination to make it be important enough to just do it. Denise P. Isaac
