If you’re anything like me, you took one look at this title and said, tell me I can’t do what? A large part of my life, (well maybe not large), has been pushed by people telling me what I can’t do. Wait… what? Let me explain.
Over two years ago, I was coming off a fast and I randomly said, “I think I’m not going back to meat.” To which someone close to me responded under their breath, “yeah, we’ll see how long that lasts.”
I made a semi-conscious effort to not eat meat, (I say semi because the habit had already been broken), for about six months. Before I knew it, it was simply my lifestyle.
Actually, the beginning of this blog in 2015 was a reaction to much of the same. I threw out my want to blog and people kind of laughed it off. (That’s why you can’t tell blind people to see your vision, but that’s a topic for another day). At first, I thought it was because they didn’t believe in me, but I really think it’s because they understand (or understood) my need for challenge, opposition, rebelliousness even.
When used for good, it’s extremely healthy and has been a game changer in my life. Most people are motivated by people telling them that they can. I mean, me too, but a carefully placed, “…OK” (read it again with a question mark at the end) and I’m ready to prove everyone wrong. Throwing my energy into getting it done.
Bottom line, tell me I can’t and (if I actually want to), watch me!
So to you reading! If you’re like me, YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING (so do everything)! If you aren’t motivated by reverse psychology (lol) then I believe in you. I believe in your dreams, your goals, and more importantly, your purpose! You have NO IDEA the plans that God has for you and I am beyond excited to see where this life takes you. You are beautiful. You are LOVED!
Anyway, I pray you have a great day and the rest of a blessed week. I love you all and I leave you with this…
Philippians 4:13 CSB
I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.
Isaiah 41:10 CSB
Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be afraid, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you; I will help you;
I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
