For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
The time has come to live by decision and not default. It’s time to stop blaming others and circumstance for the decisions you CHOSE to make. You want to attract a different type of man – choose to change your attitude and dress code, choose to stop seeming so available. You want to provide a better life for your family because God called you to be provider, CHOOSE to stop playing around and feeling sorry for yourself. The reality is you have support, but you made the decision not to ask for help. Come on!!! Time out for that!!! Your family doesn’t work without you! Your family won’t progress without you. Period.
You want to have success (financial, mental, health, etc.) – awesome! Where are you sowing to reapthe benefits? It’s not always about if you are going to get paid because that’s what you do – it’s the gift God gave you. Change your mindset! It’s time to do something different!
God didn’t just redeem us from sin, but he also redeemed us from living an empty life, from living with defaulted grace. Oh heck yes, that is what He did!!! *someone should shout right there* There is MORE! The question is how bad do you want it? Your growth is waiting for you to claim it. Surround yourself with those people who are ready to go to the next level, not those who think they have arrived. There is no growth in “arrival”. Choose this day who you want to be – the person who makes things happen, the person who wonders if it will happen or the person who sat back and watched it all go down.
Listen, let’s get in agreement, choose to make better decisions and let’s choose to live and love harder because Christ gave so we could receive all that God has waiting for us. Stay focused and go hard.
Until next time…
