I'm a quitter.
I've quit a large percentage of things I have started during my lifetime so far. From dance classes to hobbies to college - I've quit.
And then there's the even longer list of things I never even started.
Why? Why quit?
I start off strong. Full of hope and determination.
Then the doubt creeps in. The worry. The need for approval and it's twin the fear of rejection. That little voice in the back of my head telling my I'm not good/smart/talented/pretty/educated/qualified/brave enough. Whispering that I don't have enough time. Or energy. Maybe even making me believe I'm not needed or wanted.
(Perhaps you recognize yourself in me?)
The time has come to stop listening to the doubt and fear. Start listening to the Truth.
The Truth reminds me that God made me enough! I am:
- Good enough
- Smart enough
- Talented enough
- Strong enough
- Courageous enough
To complete anything He wants me to do!
I just have to say "Yes God - whatever you want" and stick with it.
I think I just came pretty close to havng me a 'Stuart Smalley' moment there. Anyone else remember him from old Saturday Night Live skits?
