I used to believe I could do ANYTHING. My plan in my twenties was to save the world before supper. I possessed endless energy to passionately chase after purpose like a bee goes after nectar. I was buzzing with life all day long. NOTHING slowed me down. NO ONE could talk me out of dreaming big and reaching for the sky!
SO, WHAT HAPPENED?
Where did all of that energy and unbridled enthusiasm go? It got swallowed up by responsibilities. I took on too much debt in my journey to greatness. Like most Americans I spent my thirties and forties raising kids, making a living to feed the kids and buying stuff to make the kids happy and comfortable.
I guess you could say I spent 2 decades of my life trying to make others happy so that I could feel good about myself.
Along the way my dreams were overshadowed with deep disappointments that caused my burning passion to become a flicker. Survival mode took over and sucked the life out of me. I asked myself, "Why try when it's only going to end the same way?" Yet, another dead end. Ugh!
When your surviving you can't dream!
PROHIBITION OR INHIBITION
Prohibition is a restriction enforced from an external source.
Inhibition is a restriction from internal limiting beliefs.
The Real Truth is my thinking was responsible for draining my passion not my kids. My inhibition was strangling my dreams. There was no external force preventing me from fulfilling my purpose in life. I lost site of it because I stopped believing that the risk to courageously run after my purpose was worth it.
I could easily blame my provider responsibilities for my disappointments but that's a big fat lie. I gave up because I stopped fighting for God's best in my life.
LIVING DEBT FREE!!
God revealed something very powerful to me during a recent 3-day fast. He showed me accumulated debt I was carrying from my broken dreams and deep disappointments. Every time something didn't go right or someone was unhappy with me I would blame myself. Taking on the blame and disappointment of others become like blobs of heaviness in my soul.
Jesus showed me how to release those blobs of heaviness and the callousness that came with carrying these unnecessary burdens.
I literally lost 6 pounds over the weekend as the Lord WIPED AWAY ALL OF MY DEBTS!
I am dreaming again and my faith has soared since the Lord unburdened my soul.
His words to me: YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN, BUT YOU ARE CHOSEN AND DESTINED BY YOUR FATHER-GOD
My words to you: YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN, BUT YOU ARE CHOSEN AND DESTINED BY YOUR FATHER -GOD
WHAT VOICE ARE YOU GOING TO LISTEN TO?
Who says YOU can't? The only one holding you back is that little voice inside of your head that says "remember what happened last time." It's time to silence that narrative. You deserve freedom just like me. It's time for you to start dreaming again!
The biggest obstacle you will have to overcome is that little voice that says "you can't" or "this is as good as it gets."
Feed on this voice, "YOU ARE REBORN INTO A PERFECT INHERITANCE THAT CAN NEVER PERISH, NEVER BE DEFILED AND NEVER DIMINISH!!!
The words of the Apostle Peter. Remember he was the guy who miserably failed when he publicly denied Christ three times,
