4 Tips To Push Through Self Doubt

How to rise above self doubt so you can fulfil your calling.

Can I make it work ?

Do I have what it takes ?

Will my voice be heard?

YES YOU CAN TO ALL OF THE ABOVE !

If you’re passionate about fulfilling your calling, then always be ready to be your number one cheerleader. I want to share four tips I know will help anytime discouragement sets in and you begin to doubt your ability to push through and make success happen.

YOU ARE LOADED

I’m talking about the deposits of Promise and Potential ; Treasure and Talents you were born with. God did not make a mistake when He put them in you and it’s time to use them for the benefit of mankind. It also simply means that you have what it takes, in fact, all it takes to do what He’s called you to do. This silences all doubts about your ability to perform. What do you have? What can you do today with what you have? If you keep thinking about what you don’t have, you won’t be able to get much done. Appreciate what you have, get to work and watch it multiply.

DON’T LOOK BACK

God’s call is about your future not your past, so don’t allow anything or anyone pull you back from behind. If your past was an issue, God wouldn’t have called you. It’s not about your past but your potential. Looking back on your mistakes and regrets is very draining so please shake it off. Keep your focus on the wonderful future that is yours through faith in Christ. Any woman who has fulfilled her calling will tell you that questions about your ability to deliver will arise. What’s most important is that you have your answers ready – Faith filled answers. Approach your calling always from the perspective of faith, let the past go and never give up.

NEVER BE INTIMIDATED

When you come across a stunning website, or read about someone achieving fantastic feats, choose to be inspired rather than intimidated by their success stories. Remember that it’s not about what you can do but what God can do through you. In fact be secure enough to celebrate them and wish them well. As you do that, you are watering the ground for your own increase and success. There’s something about offense and envy that stifles creativity or productivity. It’s their time to shine and so will you.

DON’T DELAY, DECIDE !

I encourage you to press through the barriers of self doubt. Take steps everyday and watch how you will make giant strides because truly, all giant strides begin with a step. Decide today that you’re going to do something everyday to push and birth greatness. Continuous delay will build a wall of resistance in your heart and it can even make you turn away from your calling totally, leaving you unfulfilled. Decide that you’re going to do something everyday to push and birth greatness. The steps you start with may seem little but as you take it, your confidence will build up, and you’ll be to accomplish more and more.

Choose faith over fear

How To Choose Faith Over Fear

Quit letting fear get in the way of living a more joyful and purposeful life.

Truth be told, this topic isn’t new but it’s still a much needed lesson because even though most of us know not to give in to fear, it still manages to creep up on us and have it’s way in the most devastating of ways.

Fear is an emotion we all feel and that’s okay because it can act as a signal to back off from certain people or situations that are dangerous but what is not okay is when we LIVE in fear, as in set up shop there.

It stops us when we should be moving forward.

It’s the reason we procrastinate or hide.

What could be more paralyzing?

Don’t get me wrong, facing our fears can be pretty difficult but if were going g to be honest here, the reason why we refuse to take the bull by the horns is not always because it’s difficult but because it’s uncomfortable. There’s just something comforting about not confronting, but the down side is that it’s so self limiting.

Looking Unto Jesus The Author And Finisher Of Our Faith…..Hebrews 12 : 2

Peter achieved an amazing feat when he actually walked on water, but that was only because he fixed his gaze on Jesus. As soon as Peter shifted his focus to the billowing wind and stormy sea, he started to drown but thank God he didn’t because Jesus quickly reached out and saved him. We are bombarded daily with news or situations that attempt to shift our focus here and there but the question is, Are you going to hold on to faith and stay afloat or sink with fear?

When I Am Afraid, I Will Put My Trust In You. Psalm 56 : 3

If you don’t want to go through life running and hiding and then regretting that you hid and ran, then you will need to be courageous. Sometimes you will never know what’s around the corner until you make that turn. Courage is going ahead to get the job done even when you feel scared or uncertain. As you take steps of faith, fear retreats.

The LORD Himself Goes Before You And Will Be With You; He Will Never Leave You Nor Forsake You. Do Not Be Afraid; Do Not Be Discouraged. Deuteronomy 31 : 8

Here lies the key to victory over fear – The consciousness that God is with you always. There’s something so reassuring about the abiding presence of God. David put it this way; ” Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me “. He courageously confronted and defeated Goliath because he knew who he was and whose he was. I’m yet to find anyone who adopted David’s formula and failed. Put your confidence in God because He’s with you every step of the way. Everyone and everything may fail but His saving grace is unfailing.

DO THIS: Take Daily steps Of Faith And Watch Fear Retreat.

One Simple Lesson About Christmas

 Christmas Devotions

Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Luke 2: 10

Christmas is good news! That’s the true message of the season and it’s something to cheer about but somewhere along the line, things have gotten complicated. We shouldn’t be carried away with how Christmas has been commercialized that we forget about how really simple it should be. The world shouldn’t tell us how to celebrate Christmas because it’s not about how much we have but how much we can give. It’s about sharing the good news and spreading joy. It’s not a time to be afraid or worry and fret about the things we don’t have or can’t afford. Hey, we’re not counting losses, we are celebrating the events surrounding the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, someone wonderful who was given to us as saviour, counselor and friend. That’s a plus and that’s why it’s good news!

REFLECT:  In what ways can you let go of the rush rush and keep things simple this season?

 

 

If You Are Staring At A Wilderness Where A Garden Once Was……

 God’s Promise: For the Lord shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the lord. Joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Isaiah 51:3 KJV

                     During Sunday service yesterday, the pastor mentioned repeatedly that ‘God is too faithful to fail’ and I was particularly blessed. Don’t we all need this reminder from time to time? It made me remember Eve’s journey through motherhood: 
                   

Eve must have felt all hope dashed when she lost her sons – She had two sons, Cain and Abel. Cain, driven by jealousy because God had accepted Abel’s offering, killed Abel his brother, and was himself banished forever. How deep her sense of loss must have been. One minute, she was the proud mother of two lovely boys; the next minute, she was mourning their loss. The circumstances surrounding the loss of her sons would definitely shatter the heart of any mother. God had blessed Eve to be fruitful and multiply but it seemed like the exact opposite was happening. Thank God the story doesn’t end there, God eventually blessed Adam and Eve with another child named Seth, and he was faithful in calling upon the Lord and serving him. Genesis 4:1 -25
                   

Today’s promise offers hope that there’s going to be a comfort, turnaround and there’s going to be restoration. Things may look gray and bleak but I want you to trust in the faithfulness of God because you can have a new beginning. He is too faithful to abandon you or to forget His promise to you. It doesn’t matter who or what you’ve lost, or how bad your situation may seem, you may be staring at a wilderness where a garden once was but I want to encourage you to hold on because God has promised to step in and turn that situation around in your favour.
