Are you feeling spiritually stagnant?
If you are like me then you understand exactly what I’m saying.
I’ve come to a road in my journey where I know that there is so much that God has for me, but I wonder at the same time will I ever be able to complete the current task at hand in order to get to the next phase of my journey.
Someone once told me that I was not afraid of not succeeding, but that I was afraid of succeeding.
When I first heard that I was like, What?
Why would I be afraid of succeeding? That doesn’t make any since.
I thought if I knew I would definitely succeed wouldn’t I be all in for it?
But now I think I’m starting to finally see what they were trying to tell me.
They weren’t saying that I didn’t want to succeed.
They were saying that I know I could succeed but would I want to put in the work that it would take to achieve the goals that God has for me?
They were saying are you willing to be responsible and committed?
You may be like me. You know that God has a lot for you, but as He gives you more responsibility and ask you to commit to something, your first inclination becomes to ruuuuuuuun!!!
Sometimes I feel like okay this is alright I’ll do this; then God will give me a little more and I’m like okay I think I have enough things to do; and then God will give me a little more to be responsible for and then that is when I feel like I’m out of here.
Even as I’m typing I’m feeling overwhelmed about those two words.
I know I can be committed and responsible, I mean look, I blog weekly.
I just think that if I commit completely to this road called commitment and responsibility then I’m not going to be able to control what I want to do versus what I don’t want to do.
I’m thinking I know God will want me to commit to things I don’t want to do. I’m pretty for sure I’ll want to say no more then I’ll want to say yes.
But I know that in order for me to advance forward I’m going to have to face this mountain.
I won’t be able to pass go and collect my $200 until I do (monopoly thinking).
This is where the fight takes place. Fighting for the promises of God.
This is the road I’m on.
Here’s To Your Spiritual Health!!!
