Freedom, Fear, or Knowledge. What’s Really Stopping You?

So many, so busy, spouting unintended cruelty with their words.

So many, so busy, tearing down others so that they can look bigger.

How can we fight such unnecessary cruelty?

 

Is there any value to uncovering the fears that plague you?

Is there any value to paying attention to your thoughts?

Is there any value to fighting your autopilot to learn something new?

Is there any value to uncovering and experiencing what freedom really means to you?

What should you really do?

 

Is there any real value of using your words to show others their untold worth?

Is there any real value of using your words to help others when they ask?

Is there any real value of using your words to build a stronger family?

Is there any real value to using your words to show others that their pain can be overcome?

What should you really do?

What’s really stopping you?

Freedom Fear and Knowledge

If you don’t step forward, you’ll always be in the same place.

If you don’t knock on the door, the answer will always be “no”.

If you don’t go after it, you’ll never have it.

If your life is based on having, you’ll always want for more.

Freedom is being who you really are, and doing what you need to do.

The application of knowledge drives away fear and uncovers freedom.

 

Yet we are of one body with a leader we choose to follow.

We are of one body, each with our own unique skills and experiences.

We are of one body, each with our different strengths to see what can be of value.

We are of one body, each with our different strengths to see what can be done.

Yet, how can one body survive if we are not BOTH successful?

What is really stopping us?

 

We need to find our freedom to do what we do best.

We need to see our fears to find our courage.

We need to build our knowledge to fight our fears.

We need to use our words to help others to fight their fears.

We need to work together to build our strengths and value.

We need to listen to each other to understand the value that others do see.

We need to work together to build our strengths and value.

Together, we are stronger.

What’s really stopping us?

 

Is it not-valuing our freedom?

Is it not-building our knowledge?

Is it fear?

Or, have we just stopped caring?

What’s really stopping us?

Are you just interested or committed? Your schedule will tell you!

When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. ~ Kenneth Blanchard

What passions and convictions has God given me to do?

If I’m just interested in building a strong marriage, I’ll do it when it’s convenient. If I’m committed to building a strong marriage, I will find ways to make it stronger.

If I’m just interested in being a good parent, I will find ways to improve my skills as I have time. If I’m committed to being a good parent, I will make it a priority to improve my skills and maintain a well balanced family life.

If I’m just interested in being a follower of Christ, I will do it as I have time in my schedule. If I’m committed to be a follower of Christ, I will make it a priority to be thankful for what He has entrusted to me. I will make it a priority to daily seek His wisdom. I will make it a priority to know Him better so that I can better discern His voice through my daily activities.

What father, when giving his child a fishing pole, would not also teach His child how to fish? What passions and convictions has God given me to do? Am I just interested in doing what God has asked? Or, am I committed to follow Him?

Together, we are more then just interested. We are committed.
Together, we find trust through experience.
Together, we have confident expectations because of our trust.
Together, we all succeed because we care enough to help each other.
Together, we are stronger.
