I don’t believe in mediocre living.
Nothing about Jesus was regular.
Nothing about the Holy Bible is regular.
Nothing about the disciples were regular.
Nothing about the woman at the well was regular.
Nothing about the woman with the issue of blood was regular.
When I look at scripture , I see BRAVERY.
I see STRENGTH.
I see FAITH.
I see COURAGE.
I see a whole bunch of people that stepped out on FAITH.
They didn’t know what was going to happen or how it was going to happen, but, they moved in faith anyway. NOTHING STOPPED THEM.
It makes me think of my own life. How many times do we settle for regular?
How many times do we just stay around mediocre friends?
We settle for mediocre because it’s what we often see. When all we see is people settling for regular , it becomes our normal. When we see everyone in regular relationships, we stay in regular relationships.
Everything in our lives should thrive.
Why is it that being comfortable is what we choose when the whole Gospel is about being uncomfortable?
You want to live debt free? It’s going to be uncomfortable for a season.
You want to wait for a man or woman of God? It’s going to be uncomfortable for a season.
You want to get in shape? It’s going to be uncomfortable.
You want to start a business and leave your 9-5? It’s going to be uncomfortable.
You want to inspire the world and do big things? It’s going to be uncomfortable.
Everything that requires us to be BRAVE, have COURAGE, FAITH AND STRENGTH is going to be uncomfortable at first.
Ruth had to leave everything she knew for the unknown. What is God calling you to leave? In what area is God calling you to be BRAVE in? In what area is he asking you to have FAITH and leave it all behind? In what area is he asking you to be COURAGEOUS?
We are followers of Christ. We are called to live a life outside of our comfort zone. None of our promises are in our comfortability.
When I look at the scripture , God always chose someone to do it first. He always chose someone to break the cycle. What do you do when God is calling you to do something or wait on something that you’ve never seen or seen someone else have before?
Do you know how hard it is to wait on a Godly man when no one I know is in a healthy thriving relationship?
Do you know how hard it is to start something from the ground up when no one in my family has ever done it?
Do you know how hard it is to break toxic thought patterns?
Do you know how tough it is to be changed by the power of the spirit but your surroundings haven’t changed?
Our walk in Christ is not comfortable. It was never meant to be. It was meant to change us. Transform us. BE THE EXAMPLE. That’s who we are called to be. We are ambassadors of Christ . Let’s not conform to the thinking and patterns of this world, but , let us be the difference that this world needs. Let people see Christ in us. Let us shine our light. Let us be different. Let us be COURAGEOUS AND FULL OF FAITH.
With GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE .
I pray that we are all strengthened in the spirit so we never forget why God called us to this generation.
You are not regular, GO BE GREAT AND STAND OUT! You were never meant to fit in. 💗
