There are so many things in life that can hold us back: fear, anxiety, choices, people, etc. On this list, we can also add lack of change. It’s so easy to say that it’s difficult to change ourselves or something around us, but it’s difficult to work on that change & to do what needs to be done to grow in spite of the difficulties. Many focus on the difficulty rather than the path it takes to change & what’s on the other side of the change.
It can also be said that people are afraid to look at what’s hindering them from changing; that ‘thing’ that hurt them, the person who left them, the love that was never returned, the truth that needs to be faced, & so much more. It’s ‘easier’ to stay with the known rather than go into the unknown. But do we realize that the unknown can contain so much freedom that only God can bring? Do we really want to stay stagnant? Why not see what God is going to reveal to us while He peels away the layers that have accumulated over time?
If there is one thing you could change in your life at this moment & have chosen not to, what is that thing? Is it getting in shape? Apologizing to someone? Working towards that dream? What is it? Then guess what----change it! Don’t remain in a place today where you wouldn’t want to see yourself next year. If you find yourself continually complaining—stop. Change your focus.
Do the thing that can get you to begin to change. Take the first step. Begin. Do something. Take action. Nothing can keep you from doing what needs to be done but you.
“Don’t live in your limitations.” –Trent Shelton
Until next time.
