I'm Fine...Quit Lying!

The Enemy of the best isn't the Worst, The Enemy of the best is I'm Just Fine!  Dave Ramsey...

Isn't it crazy how you start feeling bad because you don't want what your friend wants, your spouse wants, your boss wants, your kids want, your siblings.... You go to a restaurant that you don't like, you buy shoes that you don't like, you get a hairstyle that you don't like, you go see movies that you don't want to see, you sit where you don't want to sit, you have conversations with people you really don't want to talk to.  The things we do "just because" are crazy.  We keep going and going until finally something pushes us over the edge and we blow up, but all along we kept saying, I'm fine.  NO you're not fine!

In so many areas of our lives, we keep doing the same thing, hoping that one day things will just change on their own but that never happens.  At some point you have to just say, I QUIT!  In this sense, quit is a very positive word because it will get you back on the road to SELF-FREEDOM, freedom to be you, who you really are, not who others want you to be.  People think something is wrong with you when: you  don't like the same color, the same movies, the same foods, the same clothes, the same books or have the same taste in men, women, hobbies etc... Why?  Why does something have to be wrong with me?  Why isn't that something is wrong with you?  Who said your way is right or best?  Understand this... you are who you are and if God is alright with you then who gives a rat about what others think.  If you keep being a puppet on a string, your life will continue to be miserable, unfulfilled and void.  You're not happy because you're not doing you, being you and pursuing you.  Quit lying, you're not just fine, you're miserable because you're bound!  Jesus came that we may have life and have it more abundantly.  He came so we can have joy, peace, happiness and love. He died for us to have choices, not to be controlled or witchcrafted into doing and being someone we're not.  It's obvious that bullying don't just happen in schools, it happens in life.  We allow people to bully us right out of our purpose, right out of our dreams and right out of our destiny. 

If you really want to be free, be truthful.  Tell the truth about what's going on in your life and the people you are connected to.  Honestly, you have friends that you're waiting on to leave, you want them to go.  You're tired of lending money and not getting it back.  You're tired of sharing your dreams and ambitions and being rejected by them.  You're tired of being used.  You're tired of wasting time going nowhere when you know God has called you to more.  You're not just fine you're sick and tired of being sick and tired.  When are you going to stop lying to yourself?  When are you going to stop lying to God.  When are you going to stop lying to others? 

No one is an expert on you but you.  No one really knows what you want but you.  No one really knows what you like but you.  So, when are you going to start making some decisions about your own life.  Your finances are in disarray because you lend money you don't have, buy things and go places that you can't afford.  Let's stop pretending and regain control of our lives.  If your so-called friend can't keep a man or a woman, how in the heck you're going to let them council you in your relationships?  If they are broke, busted and disgusted, how can they council you in your financial decisions?  Come on..., get some sense and fire your life leaders.  The Holy Ghost is trying to figure out how you gave somebody else his job anyway.  He wants what's best for you.  He wants you to fulfill God's divine purpose and destiny for your life. He wants to see you blessed.  So why give his job to somebody who's with you today and talking about you tomorrow?  Lying to avoid confrontation only hurts you in the long run.  I've been there.  I've settled for things in the past just because I didn't want to deal with confrontation.  I allowed myself to be manipulated and controlled simply because I didn't want to deal with confrontation.  But when I got some sense, you best believe a change was made.  I had to allow God to rebuild my self-esteem, self-confidence and self-belief.  When you believe in you, no devil in hell can get you to retreat and bow down, to the detrimental influences of others, due to their lack of self-esteem and lack of faith in their abilities. People will try to hinder you because they're afraid of stepping out. THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!  Leave them right there in their pile of "wanna be" and you move on to what's "gonna be".  God is faithful to His Word to perform it.

Life is always about making adjustments.  It's time to stop lying to yourself and grab hold of the steering wheel of your life and follow the path that has already been set before you.  Make today the first day of the best days of your life.  Press Play and LIVE!
