I found this note in one of my Bibles. I am not sure where or who it came from, but God bless you Pastor!
One of the ways God Delivered me was from my poisonous thoughts. He has changed my mind and I expect to succeed today. I expect GOOD things. My life was not always this way. I was a bit of a self-sabotager. I admit it. I was so used to things going badly in my life that when something was good I didn’t know how to handle it. Many times I would “throw the first shoe” before it got thrown at me!
Its rather funny now, but not then. I remember once I got a sales job. I was super motivated, and worked like a Banchee and got all the sales awards. I was the best of the best. The boss wanted to give me a raise and promote me. Do you know what I did? I quit! Then I went to the next job, and did it again. I was my own worst enemy. I didn’t believe I deserved to succeed. And I didn’t know what to do with success once I got it.
It is only through reading the Word of God that my thinking has changed. God says He wants me to succeed,that I will be the head and not the tail. He says He will be with me wherever I go, and that I am the most blessed of all the people on the Earth because I am His child. I am grateful that God has changed my thinking. And that I was open to change.
Open your heart to Him and His Word – and expect GOOD things!
5 CHALLENGES TO SUCCEED
Life’s only limitations are the ones we make.
Nothing noble is done without risk.
3. DO YOUR PART
It takes the effort of many to make impossible feats possible.
Push yourself to the limits and experience wonders you never imagined.
It is the work of the team which determines success.
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” (Mark 10:27 NLT)
