From today’s Daily Word:
I am confident in my ability to succeed.
I am naturally drawn to the idea of improving my life and discovering greater meaning and purpose. Today I have the courage to step out of my comfort zone and turn my desire for improvement into action. Perhaps there is something I have always dreamed of doing. God has given me the tools that I need, and I am confident of my ability to succeed.
I sense divine timing–I can do this now; I have all that I require; I am ready! This is the call of Spirit and it is a precious testament to Holy Spirit working in me.
Empowered by my faith in God, I answer the call. I move into new circles, stepping forward to new breakthroughs. I am confident that with every step, Spirit within lovingly supports and guides me. I have the ability, the faith and the confidence to succeed.
They replied, “We are able.”–Mark 10:39
Talk about perfect timing! It’s difficult for me to explain just how much I needed to receive this message this morning, but I am definitely inspired and comforted. Without resorting to too much drama, let’s just say there are moments/days when — for all of the glowing feedback I receive from others about my writing ability and other talents — I wonder, is this what I am really supposed to be doing? If so, why is it such a seemingly endless road to success, fraught with one obstacle after another? Haven’t I worked hard enough, jumped through enough hoops and proven my willingness to do whatever it takes yet?
Then I realize the most important step is to simply surrender, knowing God has given me everything I need to achieve my dreams, using the gifts He’s given me. I also recall famous authors, singers and businesspeople who were once scraping the bottom of the barrel before they finally made it big.
So, onward I go. And I will keep trusting in God, doing my daily prayer and meditation time, and attending my weekly spiritual renewal/get-together with another dear friend who is on the same path.
Whatever your dream(s), just keep swimming! H/T: my wonderful friend, Marti. 🙂
