This particular message has been in me for several, several days!
“You are responsible for you…no one else…you!”
No one owes you and me anything! Period!
You HAVE to work for it. You HAVE to trust and believe that you have been created and called into something bigger than you…that you are here for a purpose that’s larger.
I believe…again, I personally…that God has called me into something so much larger than myself.
As a Christian, I am responsible for how I behave in front of people and for the message of the Gospel to be shared.
As a writer, I’m responsible for telling a story.
As an artist, I’m responsible for conveying a message that people can grasp and understand!
As a man, I’m responsible for taking care of business and operating in love for my significant other and for my fellow man. Even then, that’s not ALL the responsibilities I have as just a man!
We ALL have responsibilities!
But, there are many who choose to not take on the burdens of living and growing up. There are many who choose to not take responsibility for their actions.
It’s MUCH easier to blame everyone else…to make excuses….to declare that somehow you are being held back and nothing good can happen for you and to you.
But, it’s harder to take responsibility.
It’s a challenge to take responsibility and own up to your mistakes…the consequences seem to be higher the more you take on responsibility.
But, sooner or later, if you really, really want more out of life, you have to take on responsibilities and carry the weight of that experience.
The good news is you don’t have to carry that weight alone!
