Living at Cause
All of us have a big “but.” It’s the story we tell ourselves to forgive our failings. If you’re wondering what it sounds like, here are a few examples that may seem awfully familiar:
- “I would exercise, BUT I don’t have enough time.”
- “I would quit smoking, BUT life is too stressful right now.”
- “I would make more money, BUT I just don’t know how.”
- “I would go to church, BUT it takes too much of my weekend.”
The problem with this is that every time you add a “but” to your speech or your story, you give up an ounce of responsibility and every time you give up that ounce, you give up a pound of control.
If you’re feeling like your life is spiraling out of control, it’s time to give a hard, long look at your “but” (you don’t need a mirror to do it).
Being a Christian, you know deep down that out of “No Way” there is always “A Way,” right? And because of this, there is no room for “buts”.
I encourage you to learn to “Live at Cause”. Learn to be decisive and confident, and above all, learn to take responsibility for your actions. Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.”
JESUS ANSWERED, “I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.
