Some people seem to think I’m crazy because I have high expectations and that I’m passionate about the things that I do. The truth is, I’m just motivated toward having great success in every endeavor that I want to accomplish in my lifetime; especially for those things that are related to the advancement of God’s Kingdom on Earth. I believe Heaven is picture perfect, a vast and wonderful paradise, but here on Earth the view is distorted, out of order, and full of chaos from what our lives really should portray.
God created the Earth and humanity in six days, and man has been trying to destroy it for centuries. Everything that God does is perfect, and we should strive for that same perfection when the Spirit of the Living God dwells within us, that’s what motivates me beyond the normal to believing I am more than what people think or say. I am who God says I am, and although my actions may sometimes warrant that I crazy because I choose to believe in the impossible becoming a reality, I know there is something within me that says, “you can do better, you can have more!”
Why should I settle for less? I am a true believer of the Word of God, therefore my hopes and dreams aren’t based on what people think, say or feel about me. No, I am thankful that something on the inside is constantly driving me towards those things which will cause me to prosper and have good success! I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me. Romans 8:37. I can overcome any hurdle, set-back, run and finish any obstacle course that life puts in my path. Every time I get discouraged, I remember that I am created in God’s image, my Heavenly Father gave me free-will, I choose who I will serve and what I will allow to dictate my life. I refuse to be a slave to sin, ungodliness, the lust of my flesh, poverty, lack and debt. Any form of sickness, disease or physical disabilities that I may endure are just temporary and not permanent. I am in full control of my thoughts and my mind. I believe that I can, so who can hinder or stop me from achieving anything that I desire, except for myself?
God said, “I will be with you, I will not leave, nor forsake you.” 1 Samuel 12:22, John 14:18. He even said, “I will prepare a feast for you in the presence of your enemies!” Psalms 23:5. Yes, we all have those who don’t like us for some reason or another, but does it really matter? No, not when you have God on your side!
So, the next time someone whispers or makes a negative comment about who you are, or what you are doing, simply ignore them and say to yourself, “I’m not crazy, I’m just motivated!
