No More Excuses

Posted by Roma Daniel on

I love to listen to my 10-year-old daughter, Raven, talk about her hopes and dreams. It takes me back to my childhood when the world was at my fingertips. I could have been anything I wanted to be. However, as I grew older I became discouraged because I lacked the self-confidence needed to conquer all the stereotypes that society had set in place for little black girls.
Over time I came to the realization that it's never too late to turn your dreams into a reality! But we must first stop living according to the world's standards. One of my own quotes serves as a constant reminder: “The world will give you 101 reasons why you can't, but God's word gives me all the wisdom and encouragement I need to succeed.”
No more excuses. The choice is yours. You can either use the gifts and talents that God has blessed you with to bless others or you can waste those gifts and talents and end up with regrets.
Even as an adult, there are times where I become discouraged but I remind myself of Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".

No More Excuses
So stop waiting until you finish school,
until you go back to school,
until you lose ten pounds,
until you gain ten pounds,
until you have kids,
until your kids leave the house,
until you start work,
until you retire,
until you get married,
until you get divorced,
until Friday night,
until Sunday morning,
until you get a new car or home,
until your car or home is paid off,
until spring,
until summer,
until fall, until winter,
until you are 
off welfare,
until the first or fifteenth,
until your song comes on,
until you've had a drink,
until you've sobered up,
until you die,
until you are born again to decide that there is no better time than right now 

Peace and Blessings,
