HAPPY 4TH OF JULY AN E-MAIL I WANT TO SHARE

Monday, July 04, 2011

I HAVE BEEN ON THIS 7 DAY DOUBT DIET I WANT TO SHARE PART OF THE 7TH DAY. IT IS LONG BUT GOOD. BE BLESSED SPARKFRIENDS

The 7-Day Doubt Diet

Day 7: Getting Up Again
Taken in part from Chapter 7 & 12

Food for thought: ďThough the righteous fall seven times, they rise again." (Proverbs 24:16 NIV)

Iíve always admired people who arenít afraid to fail. You know, the ones who donít even consider defeat when they blow it; people who see a personal setback as just another goal to conquer.

Iím not always so courageous. In fact, I can be really hard on myself when I fail, and it doesnít even have to be a biggie. You see, I have what I call a ďmeanie in meĒ who replays my mistakes over and over, reminding me of how badly Iíve disappointed someone, or how impatient I was with my husband, or how harsh I was with my kids, or all sorts of ways that I fell short that day.

But the greatest defeat comes when I allow a mistake, a bad decision, a sin, or a broken relationship to convince me that I might as well give up. Perhaps you have also allowed failure to knock you down, tie you up with the ropes of regret, and hold you hostage like I have.

When I surveyed over twelve hundred women for my book, A Confident Heart, I discovered that our past failures, and our fear of failing again, are two of the biggest triggers that paralyze us with self-doubt.

Todayís key verse, Proverbs 24:16, has helped me release the regret, guilt, fear, and shame that have weighed me down and held me back. Take a minute to read it again now and notice how it says the righteous will fall. That is right. Even those of us who have received the gift of Christís righteousness and redemption will fall down. But we were never intended to stay down.

Instead of giving up, Jesus empowers us to get up again.

In getting up, we can apologize and ask for forgiveness. In getting up, we can choose to try again with our kids, in our jobs, in our ministries, in our marriages, and in all of our mistakes. Because we trust that although we fall, God will help us up.

Listen to His promise in Psalm 37:23Ė24, and as you read it, insert your name in the blanks: The steps of _ are established by the LORD, and He delights in _ way. When _ falls, will not be hurled headlong, because the LORD is the One who holds _ hand. (NASB)

When we get up again, failure actually helps us become the confident women God created us to be because it makes us stronger and betterówhen we go to God for help. Failure can stretch us to do more than we think we can and push us to try other methods of doing things when one way doesnít work.

Yes, failure can be hurtful, but it can also be beneficial. Failure produces wisdom when we ask for it and maturity when we learn from it.

The truth is, following Jesus is not about avoiding failure and being perfect. Itís about accepting our weaknesses and letting them lead us to complete dependence on Godís perfect love and power at work in us.

The next time you fail to be the woman He calls you to be, or the woman you expect yourself to be, ask God to remind you of these truths. We will sometimes fail to be who we want to be, but we get closer to who we are meant to be every time we fall and then choose to take Godís hand so we can get up again!

Lord, Iím so thankful for Your grace that reminds me there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Because my steps are established by You, Lord, I will believe that You delight in me even when I fail or fall. Today, I want to take Your hand and trust Your heart as You pull me back up again and use my failures to help me become the confident woman You created me to be. In Jesusí name, Amen. (See Romans 8:1; Psalms 37:23Ė24)

Doubt Diet Tip: I canít guarantee you wonít fail, but I can help you set yourself up to succeed! Healthy eating requires good planning, especially packing healthy snacks for in between meals. In the same way, we can plan for healthy spiritual snacks from Godís Word. That way we have easy access to truth that can keep us on track and help us lose the weight of our self-doubts.

    You go clean, today!! emoticon I have tried to start tackling my clutter too and working really hard. I seriously have been sweating when I am cleaning, and I found a cardio tracker for heavy duty cleaning too!! So that would be a good way to score some extra cardio points for your team this week!! emoticon
