Stop Making Excuses


When things aren’t going as we want, it’s easy to take on a VICTIM mentality and begin to think that we are solely a product of our place, position, environment, or circumstances. We lead ourselves to believe that we have little control over what’s really happened to us or around us...or our ability to improve things!

When we do, we don’t realize it, but unconsciously this is just a way to excuse ourselves from taking personal responsibility for our actions, environment, or our progress.

Remember this: We are not responsible for what we don’t have and we can’t do.

It’s a great day in our life, our ministry, or our organization when we stop focusing on what you don’t have and what we can’t do, and start focusing on what we do have and what we can do!

Let me ask you a question: What DO you have? What CAN you do?

You aren’t responsible for that. You are only responsible for what you have, and what you have is enough if God is in it.

Don’t be a victim. Take responsibility for what you do have and what you can do. Stop make excuses and do something!

Right now, decide that you will no longer be held captive by your past limitations. Stop blaming your parents, your predecessor, your president, your pastor, your CEO, or your boss.

Stop making excuses because of your position, or location, lack of resources, or lack of experience. Scarcity breeds creativity!

Take responsibility. Take inventory.

What DO you have?

What CAN you do?

Stop placing expectations on yourself that God hasn’t placed on you. You’re not responsible for talents and resources you do not possess!

You are 100% responsible for what you can do and you do have.

Stop making excuses! Start being faithful where you are and with what you already have. God will do the rest. Trust me on this... and let me know how this goes today!
