Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: …… Philippians 1:6 KJV
- Always be willing to learn and grow
- Don’t change for anyone but YOURSELF
- Strive to be the BEST YOU, you can be!
If you are waiting for someone else to look at you differently, to treat you better or to change for you, etc. I’d strongly suggest that you search yourself first and then your perspective of others and what they think about you will change. Trust me, I speak from experience …but that’s a whole ‘nother story! But what I want to share with you today, is what prompted this post…
There had been a few incidents that had occurred during my organizing sessions, that made me doubt my true calling. As I was questioning the Lord about whether I misunderstood what He called me to do, this is what He said to me…
“Own who you are … I will finish what I’ve started in you!”
Since starting Order Your Steps, 6 years ago, I’ve been blessed that I have not had any major mishaps, i.e. “breaking stuff”! 😦 However, in spite of the recent mishaps, the clients had been very understanding, but the endless loop of thoughts in my mind had really been wearing on me. I am sure that this never happens to you… when those inner voices make us 2nd-quess who we are and our abilities!
Now, the Lord did clarify for me that my gift is organizing, NOT moving stuff!! But I’m learning, although it’s difficult, to accept my humanity. As I’ve shared many, many times, I really don’t like to make mistakes, and yes, even “constructive criticism” is a bit painful. But I’m learning to store it away for now, since I’m sure that it will be very useful in the future.
“Own who you are … I will finish what I’ve started in you!
I had a friend to ask me “when will I get to easy street? You know, when I’ll have all the answers”… I told her that when you think you have reached easy street, there is another road “up the way”!
