ELIMINATE ALL EXCUSES







Happy new day! I pray you are having a phenomenal week!  I finished up my 8 months of in-depth Bible study course. It was so incredible to complete the journey with people of great faith and commitment. I've been doing this for the past 8 years; therefore, it has become a major part of my life.  The relationships that I've formed while doing it has been wonderful but honestly nothing supersedes the relationship that I've developed with God. The biggest contributor to helping me to complete this journey or any journey is eliminating all excuses. I have found out that excuses will prevent you from living the life you were designed to live.

The process of journaling as mentioned here has helped me to eliminate excuses. It has built my thought life to a level where it overrides an undeserving emotions that may arise. It replaces those emotions with thoughts of how I can do whatever God is leading me to do.

I also eliminate excuses by turning those reasons not to do something into reasons why I have to do it. For example, I used to say if I go after my goals then it will  take away time from my family. However, I reversed my thinking and said if I get the task completed with a sense of urgency then it will actually give me more time with my family. I really feel this is why God wants us to protect our thoughts because our thoughts have the ability to bring life or death to our situations.

Last, I think one of the most highly effective ways to eliminate all excuses is by taking action. Sometimes you can think so much until it paralyzes you. Therefore, nothing gets done except for a lot of thinking. This will prevent you from reaching your desired destination. When you take action, there is no longer room for any excuses only space for faith and endurance. Remember it takes the right head space to get into the game but it takes consistency, commitment and heart to win it!









As always, thank you for your support and have a blessed rest of the week.

  2. That is a stunning dress on you! It's wonderful to hear the advantages you've had from your bible course and your regular journalling. I'm doing well with finding time to read the bible every day, but I'm still no closer to having a regular time to do it and that's something I'd like to get better with!

    Hope that you are having a lovely week and you have a good weekend ahead of you :)
