You know the more I think about this the more I think the one thing I’m quitting at is to do better. I feel like I’m quitting at the potential that I know I have in me is built for more.
Does that make sense???
Why do I feel like I keep resulting to settle?
I settled with this weight!
I settled with this job!
I settled with the place where I’m at in ministry!
I’m settling in life for what everyone else wants me to do first and never consider my own needs!
Like aren’t we important too? I know we have this die to self emphasis as Christians and I do that… but when will I die to complacency? What about die to settle? Refuse to sink? Refuse to living with all these insecurities and doubts when I have potential??
“What a shame it would be for the enemy to believe more about our potential than we do.”
Holley Gerth, Fiercehearted 21 Day Devotional
I don’t want to keep doubting myself. This feels awful! I know there is more and I know if I am continuously grieving over my situation then I know that I have an option to change it!
Why am I settling???
I’m not a quitter! But there’s one thing I wanna quit…. COMPLACENCY! There is so much more! If it can happen for others surely it can happen for me too. I’m gonna be a little more intentional about moving forward in faith to do BETTER! To enjoy my days. To enjoy the work that I do daily. To enjoy my health. To enjoy the relationships that I have around me. There is so much more!
This is definitely on my prayer list! Maybe yours too?
Lord, help us break past this spirit of sluggishness and disbelief! Let us QUIT COMPLACENCY immediately and make aggressive steps at better days!
As Bishop Noel Jones preached, “There is something that is going to happen that will negate what you are dealing with right now!”
There’s more! There’s HOPE! Apart from that, I have to quit at what keeps me complacent!
