Let's Believe

It is such a simple idea right? Yet it seems to be the hardest.  Why is that?  I think it is because it so personal.  It is stepping out and letting every one know what it is that you deeply believe in your heart to do.

But then as the decision rolls in your heart and mind you start to sift through the doubts.  If you take the step and fail then everyone knows. More then that it is the deeper issue of being scared to be vulnerable. Vulnerable not with failure necessarily but with our heart.  Does our decision, our dream, that thing we want to accomplish, will it be what others think is right?   So many of us operate from a concern of being perceived a certain way so we guard ourselves and struggle with 'what do I want to do with my life'.

Believe in that small still voice that is speaking to you. Believe in that tiny nudge that is felt so strongly yet seems to be unattainable. Believe that the Holy Spirit is talking to you. Believe. That is the first decision we must start with, just Believe.

If you do not believe in yourself then believe in that voice that is speaking to you. Hold strong and let it take over your thoughts. Tell yourself out loud what the Holy Spirit is nudging in you.  Make the decision today to Believe that God has given you that voice inside to listen.

So right at this moment we must listen and believe in our decision to try because in God we can do anything! God has a purpose for you and it is speaking to you.  Let's Believe, it will make all other steps towards our  accomplishment, our heart's dream come to life.

Rocky Balboa Inspiration

Rocky has quickly become a staple in our household since my husband introduced him to my kids three weeks ago.  At first I was opposed to it thinking that it was an adult movie.  But then again I remember watching Rocky with my dad when I was around the same age as my oldest.  Either way my kids loved Rocky and have pronounced him as the greatest hero ever.

I have to admit that I love to see the kids play boxing matches taking turns losing. I mean there is a winner but they seem to enjoy being the one on the floor. There is something about this older movie that has inspired my kids. That has inspired me.  Inspiration is great, especially if we grab it, throw it over our shoulders and get up! I think we could call inspiration Faith. Have faith today that you can do anything. Grab that promise, hold that promise, attack with that promise and get moving…..

SOOO with that here are some quotes that hopefully inspire you today:
