Are You Living in Fear and Calling it Faith?

images

I see some of you bowing to Fear and calling it Faith!

“What do you mean, Nate?” 
Here’s what I mean:

I see so many people starting out on a Journey toward their dreams, and as soon as it becomes difficult…or interferes with the family schedule…they QUIT! 

And here’s the worse part of all: they then decide that their current life is dreamy enough! 

STOP LYING TO YOURSELF! 

*Your life wasn’t too dreamy on the front end of the journey, what you believed anything was possible! Is it more comfortable to believe that the dream isn’t possible? KEEP TELLING YOURSELF THAT ONE! lol

*Your life wasn’t too dreamy when you decided you didn’t want to work long hours, and maybe even Saturdays any more. Oh…do the extra hours suddenly feel great?

*Your life wasn’t too dreamy when you envisioned your wife not having to work (and now the 2 of you have convinced yourselves it’s not so bad) What happened? Is it awesome for both of you to be exhausted all the time?

*Your life wasn’t too dreamy when you were ANGRY at debt! What happened? Did you and debt fall back into dreamy love?

*Your life wasn’t too dreamy when YOU finally WOKE UP and realized that YOU were NOT in CONTROL! Does it all the sudden feel great to be SLAVE to the Masters of DEBT, J.O.B., Time Constraint, and Limited Choice?

If your Old Life was the Dream in the First Place, YOU WOULD’VE NEVER STARTED THE JOURNEY! 

So you can try to lie to YOU…you can try to lie to your SPOUSE…you can try to lie to your KIDS…and you can try to lie to ME!

But in the end…it’s just a lie. And you know it. We all know it.

I love you & I believe in you!  Maybe more than you do yourself.  Selah: pause and think about that.

-Nate
