What does that really mean… the title of this blog I mean? It’s really simple actually. If you want something bad enough, you do what it takes. It doesn’t matter if its a job, your marriage, your weight, you just do it. Now, before the harsh words come screaming at the screen – I get it. Easier said than done. Trust me, me of all people get that. I have my own skeletons that I struggle with but I do my best not to. So maybe it takes you a little longer to accomplish it then the person next to you. Is it a competition between you and them? No. Winning is not “strength” it’s “endurance”. When we really accomplish something it is over a long period of time generally speaking. I am almost convinced this is why God created faith the way it is. Faith, the act of believing in something unseen, as the definition given to us. Faith in and of itself is an accomplishment. It’s hard to move forward and “not know” – but it also builds our relationship with God so much more. He wants us to depend on Him. If we can do it all ourselves then why do we need Him?
I don’t care how tough you are or what kind of front you put on for people, all of us, I repeat, ALL of us, have moments of insecurity. ALL of us have moments of not understanding. ALL of us have moments of wanting to give up. And ALL of have moments of wanting to cry. Some hide it more than others, some hide it better than others, but we all share this common thread. Don’t ever think that one person has it all together, because they don’t. And they are lying to themselves if they think they do.
Don’t let pride get in your way of accomplishment. Get out of your own way and begin what needs to be done. Show your children what pushing forward looks like. Show those you work with what it looks like to go after a goal. Be an example for your spouse, friends and associates. Just don’t quit. You are an inspiration to those around you through your own struggles. You are a walking testimony. People are always watching you. If you act ridiculous then you give them the “excuse” they are looking for. I challenge you to live at a higher level than what you are.
Things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.
