Don’t Settle!

Don't Settle!

Don’t settle for mediocrity as you look forward to this new year. Leave the past in the past and believe in your dreams and yourself. Quit settling for whatever and whoever. You are worth so much more. If those in your life are not helping you become more than you are — let them go. You’ve settled long enough. There is a big world out there and whatever your heart desires, take a step of faith and seek it. If you can dream it you can believe it. There is nothing to hard or impossible with God. This is your time to become what the Lord has embedded in you to walk out.

I thought that I was too old to dream again. But I’m finding out that you’re never too old. The enemy would make you think you’re a failure, hopeless and a looser. You are so much more than those labels. So don’t settle for the lies you have integrated into your heart from the enemy. He doesn’t have power or authority to devalue you or eject your dreams. When your heavenly Father stated in His word, “I have a hope and a future for you.” (Jeremiah 29:11) He meant what He said.

This is going to be a year filled with splendor, new adventures and great opportunities for you and for me. This year take time to write the promises in God’s word for your life. He is not a man that He would lie. If the Father has made you promises, it’s time to stand on them. Stop replaying the same old message of defeat. Crush that song and begin a new selection filled with His good pleasures. God wants to expand your horizons. This is the time to reach for the impossible and watch God turn it into possible.

Ladies, it’s time to come out of the pit of feeling pitiful and chose to be hopeful. Stop making excuses why you can’t climb out of this hole and reach your mountain top experience. If anyone is holding you back, I guarantee it’s you. You see I’ve allowed my own words to keep from attaining my dreams. Words like, “I’m too old”, “I’m not capable”, “who would want me”, “I just don’t see how this is going to work out”. You’ll never know if you don’t take that first step. Let’s join hands in the spirit and walk out our dreams and stop settling for mediocrity. God has design His finest when He created humanity.

Declare “I am on a New Journey!”

I’m on a new journey and I’m not sure where I’m going to end up, but by faith I’m going to leap out of the pit and grab a hold of God’s hand and enjoy the ride. Seek first the kingdom of God then He will add all other things unto you. If this is one of the promises God has for us then let’s go for it. It’s never too late to start again. Remember you cannot change what you tolerate in yourself or in others. But God is always able to bring change in our lives if we let Him, He will never force Himself on us.

2017 has arrived! Are you willing to settle for God’s best? If not, this time next year, you will be in the same place you are now. So don’t settle for what you’ve always done. Branch out and see what opportunities our heavenly Father has in store. Greater is He that is in us, than He that is in the world. (I John 4:4) If greatness resides in you why are you settling for less?
