Accomplishing what one dreams, what one desires can be very difficult when one doesn’t believe in themselves. It can almost seam impossible to set your mind to do it at times. Have you ever had a dream where you know you can make it happen but there is just something in the way? Like walls that won’t fall; that are just in your way blocking the path? We must break the walls just like the walls of Jericho were broken . Just as they walked seven times around them in obedience to tear them down, we must walk in obedience around our issues. That’s how I felt without really realizing it. I didn’t know whether it was laziness, fear or lack of talent. As I hung up the phone with my best friend and encountered a ten-minute dilemma, I noticed something. We make more of a mess in our own mind than reality is. We tend to make more drama or a scene from what it should be. Thank God, I had self-control during my mini dilemma or else I would have been crying and in deep thought right now. I haven’t written anything within three weeks and I didn’t know why. I didn’t write about Thanksgiving or Christmas of 2017 nor any month awareness in December nor any Testimony. It was all due to fear and lack of faith in myself.
“Whatever you do, work at it wholeheartedly as though you were doing it[a] for the Lord and not merely for people.”Colossians 3:23
New Goal; Go for it!
I want to remind you what God has shown me. If you have a future goal or achievement, go for it. There is nothing stopping you but yourself. Believe in yourself. Don’t stop yourself. In my case, it was fear. However, I was allowing that fear in me to take control of my dreams and actions. Don’t let that happen to you. We are all capable of succeeding and having an abundant life; all we need is obedience and act upon it. However, start your actions on fertile ground; because if you don’t, it’ll fall, crash and squish you in the end. Just like you cannot lie to yourself, you should not fear yourself either. Therefore, if fear is what stops you; then whom shall you fear? Remember you can set your mind to anything.
