Why is it so easy for us to see the greatness in others, but we ignore it in ourselves? How often do we think, I could never do something like that? It’s too hard. I don’t have the skills. We often limit our success because we limit our beliefs.
Yesterday, I had this thought.
It is inside you! The greatness, the strength, the ability to overcome, and the desire. Embrace it and allow it to transform you from the inside out. The only thing holding you back is you.
How true is this? God dwells in my heart so there is greatness and strength inside of me. He can teach me, lead me, and guide me along the journey. We don’t have to have it all figured out to start. God wants us to trust Him, and step out in faith. When we stop listing all the reasons why it won’t work and start focusing on all the reasons it could, then we open ourselves up to receive a new opportunity.
Anytime we start something new it’s only natural for us to have doubts. It’s when we start nurturing our doubts that we cause ourselves grief. Faith is believing in the things that we cannot see, but our heart’s desire. When we have hope, we can get through the really difficult moments.
The greatness we desire is beyond our comfort zone. In order to get there, we have to step beyond what we know, what we have already experienced, and open our hearts to the new possibilities. It’s hard. But the only way we can change our lives is if we change what we do.
Take the chance. Step out in faith and see what God has for you.
Love and blessings,
