March Madness - Day 28


Believe in yourself! You are enough!

Tenacity.

Determination.
Commitment.
Passion.

Many of us set goals for ourselves. We start off strong. We're excited. We say we're ready. We make a plan to achieve the goal. We set benchmarks.

But then something happens.

The plan doesn't go the way we thought it was supposed to. We miss the benchmark.

What happens then?

Many of us second guess ourselves. We begin to question whether we set the right goal. We start to wonder if we're enough. We start to wonder if we have what it takes.

For some of us, our confidence is so shaken that we give up. We throw in the towel. We abort the mission.

But why?

I venture to say we forget who we are. We forget whose we are.

Truth is, nothing should shake our confidence. After all, Psalm 139:14 tells us that we "are fearfully and wonderfully made."

We were created for success. We were destined for greatness. We were born to soar.

No matter what comes up against you, stand firm. Be like a tree planted by a river. Be immovable. Bend but don't break.

Revisit your goal.

When you are tired, push.
When you are weak, push.
When doubt sets in, push.
When you are let down, push.
When frustration takes over, push.

Push past fear. Push past pain. Push past disappointment. Push past ridicule.

When you fight the good fight, you remind yourself of all that you're capable of. You remind yourself that your battle is not yours to fight alone. You remind yourself that you are enough.

          YES, YOU ARE ENOUGH!

Believe that for yourself. Others will be have no choice but to fall in line.


Declare that today by commenting below: I AM ENOUGH!

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
