“Do More of what you love, less of what you tolerate, and none of what you hate” — John Assaraf.
When I first read that statement, I thought, that’s not realistic. You can’t live that way. Everybody has to do some things they hate, right?
I can’t explain it, but these days I find myself doing none of what I hate doing, less of what I tolerate, and more doors opening up with amazing people inviting me to come do what I love to do in their community!
I think Grace is amazing, and Favor is beyond explaining, and I think those are available to everyone. But why do some of us believe and step in, while others of us remain skeptical? I was skeptical and scared for years.
There are still times (like this morning) when I’m afraid that the dreams in my heart are too outlandish. But with every new door that opens, I believe a little bit more that it is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom. And that’s not a spiritualized deferment for a heavenly place to come. I’m talking about life and Joy and Excitement and Enthusiasm right here, right now.
Ironic that I’m writing this at this moment, since this is a mindset I had to fight for today. I spoke promises and affirmations and declarations until my mind was right. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Let this mind be in you that was in Christ. Say what you need to say until you believe enough to come alive.
Believe again if you must. There is a great deal of difference between still believing something and believing it again.
Have an amazing day!
