GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT!

BE YOURSELF stand out from the crowd

did you ever feel alone in a room filled with people? or when there’s a party going on you may feel you’re on the outside looking in? what about not being picked on a sports team in school? maybe you were overlooked for a promotion? ever have days like that?
i know you may not believe it, but everyone experiences some form of rejection at least once in their lifetime…
and yes, it’s a painful feeling thinking no one cares about you or recognizes your gifts or talents.
but maybe this is not really rejection as you know it.
can you stop for a moment and consider it may not be others who are rejecting you , but maybe you’re rejecting yourself, simply by not seeing your “true” self-worth?
the truth my friend is , you have been duped! you have believed an age old lie……
you see, what’s behind all of this rejection is fear ! fear lies and tells you no one cares about you, you’re not good enough, you don’t fit in, you have no friends, you’re not pretty enough, talented enough……are you getting my point?
well it’s time to take that fear and turn it in for some good old fashioned truth!
don’t let fear whip you and tear you down……take that fear and make it bow it’s knee and come under subjection to the truth!!! want to know what the truth is? the truth is that you are worthy to be a vital part of life and you were called to be planted in a strategic place… did you know you are worth more than silver or gold in the eyes of your creator? anything other than that is a nasty lie….
listen, we all have areas that need work, but focusing on the down side only brings bad results! focus on the good things about yourself!
see yourself as one who’s a victor! one who can take on a challenge and jump over it like deer who’s feet can take them through rocky mountains!
come on, we all face challenges in life, why not refocus and see yourself as the one who wins instead of loses? you can do it!! anyone can, you just have to decide you want to sprint to the finish line! remember, if you’re going to run the race, it’s just a matter of giving it your best shot……that’s what really counts. truth be told, we’re all winners to someone!
so why not take a stand and see yourself strong and courageous? just look fear and rejection in the eye and tell them they have to find another resting place because you’re evicting them!!! hang up the“no vacancy”sign and tell those losers you’ve just rented the room to a winner!!!
oh! one last thing, don’t forget to thank your creator for who you are and how you were made, after all, you’re perfect in the sight of the master potter……so seriously ask yourself, who’s opinion really matters most? doesn’t the potter love his creation more than anything? then, why not take his hand and celebrate with him and be happy for who you were created to be?
come on…….let’s turn up the music and do the victory dance together!

peace out

DIGGING HOLES

 

 

have you ever thought about what happens when you dig a hole?
i never recognized the importance of digging one, until i saw how it actually alters everything around it….
i know it sounds crazy, but stay with me on this one and think about it for just a moment…..
a hole is made by removing dirt from a specific area, large or small.
obviously you remove the dirt to make room for something else…..and then you have to take that same dirt, place it somewhere, adding it to something, which then  alters it’s original appearance….hmmmm…
where am i going with this, you might ask?…….well, let me say it this way….sometimes we have to dig holes in areas of our lives that need shifting or removal…..when that happens, it’s most likely not a bad thing……i would venture to say that whatever is being removed is actually making room for something new and exciting!

just think of this alteration as a makeover!! just remove some old dirt and lay it on an area that needs rebuilding or raising up in order to take a step up to see from a different perspective! and then, fill your empty hole with some seeds that will produce life so you can share it with others…..

so then, why not begin looking at this hole as a new season in your life…..and see the extra dirt as a way for you to build a hill to step up onto higher ground! while you’re up there see the world from a different point of view!
hopefully, after today a hole will never look the same to you again!!!

and with that said, i think it’s time  we get out our shovels and start digging a hole?

do you realize we could change the world one hole at a time!!!

peace out…
