I absolutely love when someone tells me I can't accomplish something.
“Josh, you'll never make it.”
“Josh, you'll never be able to do that.”
“Josh, that's just too much for anyone to accomplish. You can't do that.”
I know you've been there too. Maybe someone just does that little smirk or laugh when you tell them you're going to make something happen.
There are doubters all over the world.
Doubters especially show up out of no where when people are doing good things and making good things happen. There is so much darkness in this world that no one wants to see good things happen.
It's as if the entire world is turning to the dark side.
Guess What, Though?
Each and every one of us are made in the image of God himself.
We all have the power and strength to be just like God. God gives us that power and strength. In other words, we can be just like God. And ANYTHING can be accomplished if we are like God. Anything.
Remember all the doubters when they doubted the Wright Brothers? Those doubters said we would never fly.
Remember all the doubters when they said we would never make it to the moon? They said we would never make it.
Remember all the doubters when they said no one would ever bench press 1000 pounds? No way, right?
I am sick and tired of all the doubters and all the people who put others down in this world. Think about what you are doing before you tell someone they can't do something.
Anything is possible with God as our creator. God created us, and he created us so we could do all things through him. God makes all things possible.
When you put someone else down, you just create more darkness in this world. Start helping others. Start encouraging others. When you do, your life changes too. Good comes to you and your life. It's true.
We Can Only Build 5 pounds of Muscle Per Year!
Who said so? Some Internet “muscle building” expert? That same muscle building expert says anyone who says otherwise is a liar.
Guess what? That same person is limiting him/her self and everyone who listens to him/her.
Don't put limits on your life and what you can do and accomplish. We are made in God's image. God is an awesome God and gave us all abilities we haven't even yet discovered.
Do you think you could bench press 500 pounds if you were in a life or death situation? Most people would say no. That could never happen.
Well, I say YES. It can happen, will happen, and has happened. We all have amazing levels of strength and power within us that we could never imagine.
In today's world, none of us ever need that amazing strength or power so we all doubt ourselves all the time.
I am sick of doubt. I am sick of frustration. I am sick of the lack of willpower. I am sick of procrastination. I am sick of people thinking and saying “I CAN'T DO THIS!”
You Can Do This
I don't even know exactly what I am saying you can do. But whatever it is… you can do it.
If you put your trust and your faith in God, you can do anything through Him.
If you're trying to get a better body and continue to doubt yourself, that's why you aren't getting that body.
If you're trying to eat healthier but just can't do it, you doubt yourself.
You can't do something simply because you are doubting yourself. If you start believing in yourself, you will start achieving. God doesn't make junk. God made you. He makes all things great. Your doubt is what's stopping you. Stop doubting and trust in God.
Understand that you can achieve anything you want in this life and in this world.
You might not think something is possible. Might as well give up if you doubt. It won't happen.
Because you can do it. Believe in God. Ask God for what you need and for what you want. Make it happen. Remember that you are created in God's image and that you were there from the beginning. You have always been a part of God's plan.
And that makes you important. Important to God, important to me, important to everyone. You are important.
So realize that, and realize that we need you.
Now Is The Time To Turn To God
God needs you. He made you and is waiting for you to come back to him.
Where have you been? Did you go down the wrong path and finally realized? We've all been down the wrong path, and we all continue to fall off the right path.
It's happened to me many times, but I don't give up. I keep fighting. And God needs you to keep fighting too.
Continue to seek God and you will find Him. And when you do, you'll know. Nothing from this world or of this world can match what God has for you. When you find God, you will know.
All you have to do is keep looking for Him, continue asking Him to come into your life, and continue the search until God knows you are ready for Him.
God never lets you down.
God never turns His back on you. God will always be here for you.
So again, don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something. With God, all things are possible. It doesn't matter what I say, and it doesn't matter what anyone says or thinks. It only matters what God thinks.
Who Cares What Anyone Else Thinks?
It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.
Are you afraid to believe in God because your friends don't? Are you afraid to tell people about God because you know they will think you have totally lost it? Are you afraid?
Ask yourself this…
Why are you afraid? You're afraid of what people will think of you? Why? God matters. The doubters are there to stop you. What does it matter that the doubters think you are crazy? Trust me… it won't matter. Let them think as they will.
God matters. What others in this world think of you does not matter.
The world is filled with darkness, and you have the light in you once you turn to God the Son, Jesus Christ. Turn to Jesus, and the light will begin shining in you. It's a light that the world just can't put out. Not possible.
Get your light. Shine that light all over the world. And never STOP. It's time.
Turn your life over to God and just watch what you can do. God is awesome and made YOU in HIS image. You are God like. Yes, I said it and no I am not crazy. You are God like.
Now go do what God put you here on Earth to do. Get to it.
There's no more sitting around waiting for something to happen for you. Get up and make it happen. Do it now.
