Scripture of The Day
One of the reasons many people do not enjoy life, miss out on some of the blessings God wants to give them, or feel badly about themselves is that they do not finish what they start. They never taste the joy of accomplishing a goal or fulfilling a desire because they do not press past the challenges that arise. Most of us would not say, “I am a quitter,” or we make excuses or blame the failure on someone or something else.
We all have an “excuse bag”. It’s a little invisible accessory we carry around with us all the time. Then when something difficult comes along that challenges us or gives us more than we want to deal with, we pull out an excuse like this:
. This is too hard.
. I don’t have enough time.
. I hadn’t planned on this today.
I urge you today to throw away your excuse bag! Don’t be limited by your excuses. Trade it for a confident attitude that says, “I can do what God has called me to do.” Whenever you feel like reaching for an excuse, instead, “I can do this!”
