Be”lie”ve

A classic misconception to a lack of people skills is, “that’s just the way I am” mentality, rendering their inability to change as a part of life without hope. An endless circle of depravity inside a cage of shallow “auto response” instincts.
Intellectually ignorant or lazy, fear of change, stuck,… call it what you will, but don’t be afraid to face the truth and admit failure, because from there comes victory. Without admission of failure,… you will stay in failure.
Humility may be interpreted as weakness but those interpreting it as such need similar company due to a threat of self confidence in their own lives.
Rise above “NORMAL” and break the chains of complacency.

Freedom from Fear

Self doubt, negative self talk, a lack of self confidence, & low self esteem are all tools that keep us chained inside the prison of fear, & as long as we are bound by those chains we will continue to reside in that prison.

Although the fear is real, it is also a lie, & a lie can only effect you as long as you believe it.
To escape from this prison, you must first break those chains & to break those chains you must choose to not believe the lies.
It is not what others say or think about you but what you choose to believe about yourself, so take one “thing” that you believe negatively about yourself and choose to believe the opposite, & then fight through the habitual feelings that have rooted themselves in your routine & prove that new “choice” by acting on the new belief by taking a step of faith.
Yes it will be terrifying, but that is the fear fighting against your success. The voices that say “you can’t” are nothing more than an empty echo bouncing off the walls of your self made prison that will never stop until you ignore them & stop believing the lie.
Fear only exists by choice. Choose to break free.

Judge Not

JudgeNotDo not Judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Matthew 7: 1
We are all sinners, no one is beyond the massive list of faults that we tend to heap on the people we are upset with or think that they have done us wrong. Our first reaction is usually to list off what it was that they did to us in a manner of looking down on them for doing the same things that we have done ourselves, either to the person that did it to us or to someone else in our past. So if we sit back and take a very hard, deep look at ourselves we WILL find that we fit into the same category as the one’s we have just shoved in there. Which the passage above clearly warns about. So be careful…

  • If you judge someone for lying,… you will be judged a lair.
  • If you judge someone for stealing,… you will be judged a thief.
  • If you judge someone for hypocrisy,… you will be judged a hypocrite.
  • If you judge someone for unfairness to you,… you will be judged for being unfair.
  • etc. etc. etc.

The list can go for miles, so the next time you have the urge to complain about someone doing something to you, first throw it into the pile of offenses that we have done ourselves. If we get a match for doing the same things,…  Leave it in the pile, hang your head in humility, ask forgiveness from the Lord and live in peace.

If we still find ourselves stubborn and say that “I have never done that to anyone”,…  think again, and continue to think until you do find that you have. Maybe not exactly how they have done it to you, but in another form or action you will find that you are just as guilty.

There are usually two different responses to the information above and they are;

  1. Being additionally judgmental and furious with these truths.
  2. Being convicted and humbled for it.

If we find ourselves in #1. and are fighting the truth, we are refusing to let go of, either past hurts from others, or our own insecurities that someone might just be getting away with something that “you” think should be in a different category as you, and still deserves your ( or Gods ) vengeance.

If you have chosen #2. then you will experience peace through humility and usually a desire for reconciliation will follow.
