Intentions into Actions

Two weeks ago I had the honor to listen to my amazing husband live out a true gift God has given him, to preach God's good news. And boy did he bring a word. The thing about being given a message is that you have two choices. One choice is to hear it and maybe take a note here and there. The second choice is to actually make that message alive in your life. Do something about that word. Jonathan talked about 'story'. What story are you living? What is the story your life will tell? Today is a gift. We have today to make a difference. We have today to live a dream. We have today to work or achieve a goal. Why are we wasting today and not fulling living today? We are to turn our 'when' into 'now'. We are to make our INTENTIONS into ACTIONS, TODAY! So why is it that I was truly inspired by this wisdom nearly two weeks ago but I'm still talking about my intentions and not my actions? Its frustrating. For several years now, I have realized I've been battling the spirit of fear. Fear is paralyzing in my life. It speaks lies into my life...but the saddest part is that I've believed it. Why do I let it have so much power in my needs to end. I don't want to be here in 10 years and be talking about the same 'whens'. I have a friend who has started a blog as of January 1, 2010. This blog is to help her get out of the depression and anxiety she has been suffering from for years. This blog allows her to not keep secrets anymore. It allows her to tell people and face the reality of her everyday struggles. It allows her to feel and it allows other people feel for her. I admire her for her bravery and turning her intentions to get better into actions of getting better! I want to fully experience this life that God has given me. I want to be fully free and happy everyday. I want to be the best person I can be for myself and also for my husband who deserves nothing less. I want everybody to know the real me. It starts NOW... My Intentions into Actions... 1) I will paint the furniture I have started to collect. 2) I will upholster the two chairs I have purchased. 3) I will make our house into a home. 4) I will workout and train for a goal. 5) I will lose the extra pounds. 6) I will show others my story, through my actions, not my plans. To be continued...
