5 EXCUSES holding us back from living the life we desire

I don’t know what to do. It lets me off the hook. I mean, how am I supposed to do things that I don’t know how to do? It feels safe not to know how to do something. No one can really blame us for not knowing. But it’s just an EXCUSE. If I genuinely wanted to do it, I would find a way.

It’s not my fault. How many times do we blame others for our problems and reactions? Blaming someone else takes away our power. As long as I think someone or something else is the problem, the more I will look to them for my solution. The solution is inside of me. Therefore, I need to be honest with myself and see my part in it all.

I am a victim. Feeling victimized makes us think we are helpless. We get stuck in the thought pattern of this shouldn’t have happened to me. I feel stuck in that state of mind because I can’t change the reality. So my mind ruminates on what shouldn’t have happened instead of inquiring about why it happened and what I can learn from it all.

I am not able to do that. Anytime I feel like I can’t do something, before even trying, I quit before I get started. If I truly believe I can’t do something, I won’t put the real effort needed to accomplish it. I accept defeat, and that prevents me from having to try.

I am not good enough. The enemy uses this one against me so often. If I don’t feel I deserve the gift or blessing from the Lord, I won’t even try to use it. I reject all the good things from God when I don’t believe I am good enough for them. I forget my worth is not in my flesh or the things of this world but in the salvation of Jesus’ blood. The day I got saved, it made me good enough.

Anytime I hear myself say or think of these excuses, I want to dismiss them and search for the truth. I want to look for the possibilities of what God can do instead of believing the lies of my enemy. I want to recognize the limiting beliefs in my life and pray for the ability to overcome them.

My God can make the impossible things in my life possible.
