My Limited Life
I limit myself and my life. I think, "I can't do that" There should be no such word as can't--it's really "won't". I limit what God can do in my life by my fears and all those are based on is not wanting to look stupid. I know the Lord has much more in store for me. God wants to increase me–He wants to give me more wisdom to make better decisions. He wants to give me a stronger walk so I can overcome my frustration and outbursts. Yesterday He turned on another lightbulb when I spoke (once again)without thinking first. I realized I am often speaking out of emotion instead of thought. Then I say things that I regret saying and even with an apology, cannot really ever take it back. That emotion is based on old crap in my life, not the present! Get unstuck from that old rut of outbursts and apologies. That's not all there is to life. He wants to give me His strength to control my outbursts, so I can be a blessing to others. God has new frontiers for me to explore and higher mountains to climb! So I can say with great confidence that my best days are come.
Proverbs says, "The path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter and brighter." If I'm going to start experiencing these new victories, I must do my part and start thinking the way God thinks. Think positive, find the good in all things. Start expecting the miracles!
Father, sometimes the frustration of the moment consumes me and I lose sight of Your will for me. Let me dig to the root of where that comes from. Search me and remove that diseased part of me. I am ready to experience the wonderful things you have in store for me!
