this is the question God posed to me a few weeks ago when I was complaining
(yes even I have those moments)…
Yes God posed this question when I was complaining about a few things that just didn’t seem to be going the way I wanted them to. Have you ever been there *|FNAME|*? You know where you have these high expectations about something and it just doesn’t go exactly as planned. Well this was me a few weeks ago.
I was actually walking around the house talking out loud. You know, not really talking to God but talking so He could hear me. :) Well right in the midst of my complaining, He said you’ve been saying this for some time now. What are you going to do about it?
Huh? Did I hear what I thought I heard.
Yep… I sure did.
You see I had gotten so used to everything falling into place that when it seemed to be taking longer than I wanted or didn’t go as planned, I was frustrated. The problem was, I wasn’t really doing anything about it except run my mouth. Can you relate? You want things to change but you aren’t really doing anything about it to change the situation. The voice I heard was very clear. If you want something different, what are you going to do about it to bring about a different result?
So of course as you know, when I learn, I teach… or coach… so I want to post the same question to you… WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Whether it is your job, your marriage, your weight, your friends, your aspirations, your money, WHATEVER IT IS…. how long will you keep talking about it before you actually do something about it?
No, maybe it didn’t’ work out the way you wanted but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. It just means you have to go back to the drawing board and figure out a different way to approach your problem or situation. Sometimes you need to be challenged to come out of your comfort zone. You need to be pushed out of average and mediocre into exceptional, fabulous and phenomenal. I believe you have everything in you to be who God created you to be, but sometimes situations and circumstances cause our creativity to lie dormant. Not anymore. You have to take personal responsibility for this next move you are getting ready to take. Enough talking about how it didn’t work or how it wasn’t what you thought. Sometimes, God is waiting for the right time to blow your mind with His awesomeness. He just needs you to close your mouth and get moving. He won’t move until you do.
Do something about it! Take some time to really identify what you are struggling with. What have you been complaining, murmuring, or just talking about for way too long? Now Think about one thing you can DO instead of running your mouth, then do it. Close your lips and get moving. Put together a plan of action. Map out your strategy and then get moving.
